Most Anticipated New Releases on Netflix This Week
Better Call Saul (Season 6)
Coming to Netflix: Tuesday
It’s been a horrid wait for Better Call Saul fans wanting to stream the sixth and final season of the Breaking Bad prequel series but we’re happy to report that this week, that wait will come to an end.
Over the course of the show, we’ve seen Jimmy McGill continue down the track of transforming into the quick-witted and shady Saul Goodman and that comes to a head in the final season.
Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody (2022)
Coming to Netflix: Saturday
Music biopics are all the rage right now and one that’s definitely flown under the radar in our books is the Sony movie based on the rise to fame of Whitney Houston.
Naomi Ackie embodies the role of the R&B vocalist in the movie directed by Kasi Lemmons, who has had a long history in Hollywood in both acting and directing capacities.
The movie ultimately scored mixed reviews when it hit theaters in late 2022, with Stephen Romei for The Australian concluding, “It is a celebration of her too-short, spectacular career but it does not ignore her drug use, her sexual relationship with Crawford, her tempestuous marriage, and her concert disasters.”
The Diplomat (Season 1)
Coming to Netflix: Thursday
Hoping to continue its run of shows that more resembles the lineup of CBS or Showtime a decade ago is The Diplomat, the new show is spearheaded by Debora Cahn, one of the creators who has worked on The West Wing, Grey’s Anatomy and Fosse/Verdon.
Here’s what you can expect going into the new series:
Kate Wyler is the new US Ambassador to the United Kingdom. She was supposed to go to Afghanistan. She’s great in a crisis zone. In a historic home… less so. War is brewing on one continent and boiling over on another. Kate will have to diffuse international crises, forge strategic alliances in London, and adjust to her new place in the spotlight — all while trying to survive her marriage to fellow career diplomat and political star Hal Wyler.”
Keri Russell, Rufus Sewell and David Gyasi star.
