Romance and Period Drama Watchlist For the Week of August 26

A new weekly feature to let you know what to watch each week in the romance and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.

This week is all about the long-anticipated premiere of the final season of A Place to Call Home! The first episode of season 6 premieres on August 31st (Acorn TV). So, it’s the beginning of the end of one of the best, underrated period dramas you should be watching.

You’ll also want to be on the lookout for a couple of exciting movie releases. There’s the limited release of Destination Wedding with Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder (crossing fingers for a wider release soon!) Plus, there’s the fabulous looking Gothic period drama with a side of romance in the new British film, The Little Stranger (starring Jane Eyre‘s Ruth Wilson).
