What We’re Watching on Netflix This Week

Before we get into the full list of what’s coming up, here are our picks of our top 3 picks this week.

The Chair (Season 1)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Sandra Oh headlines this new comedy series that comes from creators Amanda Peet and Annie Wyman.

The series is about the inner workings of the English department at the prestigious Pembroke University where she’s facing an uphill battle to keep the department afloat and sane.

The series also stars Jay Duplass, Holland Taylor, Bob Balaban, Nana Mensah, David Morse, and Everly Carganilla.


Walk of Shame (2014)

Coming to Netflix: Monday

Two major movie licenses are coming this week but we still don’t have confirmation on which movie “Like Crazy” on Thursday will be.

So, we’re picking out the movie that will be kickstarting the week on Monday in the form of the Elizabeth Banks comedy, Walk of Shame.

Banks plays the role of Meghan who has just 8 hours to make her way to the most important job of her life but there’s a problem. She’s left stranded after a one-night stand with no resources to get home.


The Loud House Movie (2021)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

It has been an excruciating wait for the debut of The Loud House Movie which was first announced all the way back in March 2017.

Based on the Nickelodeon series, the movie will see Lincoln Loud and his many siblings travel to the treacherous location of Scotland on vacation.

David Tennant will voice act in the movie alongside many of the original voice actors from the main series.
