Most Anticipated New Releases Coming to Netflix This Week

XO, Kitty (Season 1)

Coming to Netflix: Thursday

It’s been two years since the third and final To All The Boys movie landed on Netflix, but we’re finally headed back in a serial format focusing on a character that is featured throughout all three moves.

Per Netflix, here’s what you can expect from the new series:

“Back for another adventure, this time her own, Kitty Song Covey thinks she knows everything there is to know about love. She’ll soon realize that relationships are a lot more complicated when it’s your own heart on the line.”


The Son (2023)

Coming to Netflix: Saturday

Debuting in theaters earlier this year, The Son from Sony Pictures Classics arrives somewhat unexpectedly (SPC movies haven’t always come to Netflix) and features an impressive cast list. Top names such as Hugh Jackman, Laura Dern, Vanessa Kirby, Zen McGrath, and Anthony Hopkins all feature in the Florian Zeller-directed movie.


Missing (2023)

Coming to Netflix: Saturday

Yep, we’re getting two Sony movies over the weekend, with Missing being the biggest of the two new titles headed our way.

With a Certified Fresh rating on RottenTomatoes, the movie will have you following a young daughter who attempts to track down her missing mother, who was vacationing in Colombia with a new boyfriend. Using technology to find her, it’s not just her location that comes to fruition but some dark secrets.

Per the Critics’ Consensus on RT:

Advertising

“Missing can strain credulity in its efforts to keep the audience guessing, but a fast pace and relatable fears keep this twisty techno-thriller from completely losing its way”
