It’s time for another look ahead at what’s coming up on Netflix over the next seven days. This week is significantly quieter than most, but we’re expecting it to be more news-heavy. Here are our top picks and the full list of what’s coming up this week on Netflix. 

This week, we suspect we’ll finally get a full look ahead at what’s scheduled to release on Netflix in September 2023. Until then, you can catch all the currently announced movies and series for the month in our ever-updating preview.

Removals from Netflix on the horizon on the next seven days include The Water Man (which featured in our top picks for the end-of-month removals), Take My Brother Away, Jobs, Disobedience, The Debt Collector 2, and Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Being Dad.

Most Anticipated New Releases on Netflix This Week

Ragnarok (Season 3)

Coming to Netflix: Thursday

One the criminally overlooked titles by those in the States and in other regions is Ragnarok which will conclude with its third and final season this week.

The series has given us a unique take on Norse mythology over the past few years and will conclude with an epic showdown when an ancient enemy comes and takes a hold of the entire country.

You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah (2023)

Coming to Netflix: Friday

Netflix’s big new comedy movie for the week and the last for August before we start heading into the Fall slate is the new Adam Sandler-starring movie based on the book by Fiona Rosenbloom.

Reviews for this movie actually came out on Friday and thus far, they’ve been pretty good, with it currently carrying a 100% on RottenTomatoes, albeit only on five reviews.

Courtney Howard for Variety said that this is the daughters of Adam Sandler are the primary focus of the movie and that “what’s there is funny, lovely, and surprisingly poignant.”

Our review from Andrew Morgan will hit on Friday.

Big George Foreman (2023)

Coming to Netflix: Saturday

Coming to Netflix US from the fruitful Sony first window deal this week is Big George Foreman, the new biopic on the heavyweight boxer starring Khris Davis, Forest Whitaker, Jasmine Matthews and Sullivan Jones.

Directed by George Tillman Jr., the movie centers on one of the “greatest comebacks of all time and the transformational power of second chances.”

While the movie didn’t pick up the strongest reviews from critics (indeed, it only has a 43% on RT), audiences have been far kinder to the flick.
