Netflix subscribers have little to complain about this week with some truly fantastic new TV shows added to the US library. With lots of seasons to binge, suffice to say it’s going to be a busy weekend for plenty of Netflix subscribers.

Manifest (Season 3)

Manifest was a smash hit on Netflix when the first two seasons arrived in 2020. But with the third season seemingly the end to the mystery drama, there’s been a huge backlash from fans over the cancelation. While the series still remains canceled at the time of publishing, fans still hold hope that NBC will reverse their decision or Netflix to revive it.

A commercial airliner that mysteriously disappeared five years ago suddenly reappears, with all the crew and passengers unharmed. But for those onboard, time passed normally.

The Fairy Tail anime came to an end almost two years ago, and it’s been over four years since the manga concluded. During that time, Hiro Mashima has been incredibly hard at work creating the world of Edens Zero. Instantly popular with long-time Fairy Tail fans, it was only a matter of time before an anime adaptation would arrive.

In the Granbell Kingdom, inside of an abandoned amusement park, the young boy Shiki has lived his entire life amongst the machines and animatronics. Unbeknownst to Rebecca, and her cat companion Happy, who are exploring the park, they are the first human visitors the park has had in a hundred years. When Shiki’s home becomes the center of a robotic rebellion, it becomes too dangerous for him to stay, so he joins Rebecca and Happy in their spaceship as they travel the cosmos.

Between the age of 18 and 28, all male citizens of South Korea are required to complete their two-year military service, but that doesn’t stop some citizens from deserting. The youthful Jun Ho finds himself as a member of the military defector arrest team, which requires him to arrest any and all known deserters. His conscience is left to grapple with the more troubling cases for soldiers who felt that they had no other choice but to go AWOL.

Or has he been set up for something far more sinister?
