Criminal: UK (Season 2)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Director: Jim Field Smith
Cast: Katherine Kelly, Lee Ingleby, Rochenda Sandall, Sharon Horgan

Criminal was an underrated series that was added to Netflix last year with three regional variants. Only the United Kingdom’s version looks to have survived, however and is back this week with four brand new episodes.

Although the same detectives are back, there are all new criminals sitting in the hot seat but are they innocent or guilty?

Call the Midwife (Season 9)

Genre: Drama, History
Cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Laura Main, Jenny Agutter, Judy Parfitt

call the midwife season 9

A true British feel-good series that will pick you up after a hard day and has a huge back library of episodes to binge through.

The new season of Call the Midwife is set a couple of decades later than the previous in the 1960s but still retains its excellent characters and easy to unwind style.

Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous (Season 1)

Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Cast: Paul-Mikél Williams, Jenna Ortega, Sean Giambrone, Kausar Mohammed, Ryan Potter, Raini Rodriguez

As the Dreamworks deal with Netflix comes to a close the quality of some of the titles in the latter stages of the deal have been amazing.

Jurassic Park, in particular, is one of the biggest titles yet based on some insanely popular IP.

The new animated series has received rave reviews from audiences.

Ratched (Season 1)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Cast: Sarah Paulson, Jon Jon Briones, Judy Davis, Harriet Sansom Harris

Our penultimate recommendation is a TV series you’ve no doubt seen plastered everywhere around the net this week and we’re referring to the prequel series to One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

Starring Sarah Paulson in the iconic role, many have called compared the series to a standalone American Horror Story season which is fine by us.

Reviews have been really strong for the series and hopefully, you guys will love it as more episodes are on the way.

Girlfriends (Seasons 1-8)

Genre: Comedy
Cast: Tracee Ellis Ross, Golden Brooks, Persia White, Reginald C. Hayes
Runtime: 30 min
Awards: Nominated for 1 Primetime Emmy. Another 8 wins & 37 nominations.

One series we’re sure you didn’t miss when it was added to Netflix late last week was all eight seasons of Girlfriends.

The classic series from The CW is created by Mara Brock Akil who just last week scored an overall deal with Netflix to produce new shows.

Here’s what the series is about if you’ve never taken the time to watch:

“A look at the lives, loves, and losses of four different women, Toni, Maya, Lynn, and Joan.”
