We’ve been hyping this new series for over a year now, and we can’t wait to dive in with you all today.

Using groundbreaking technology, the new series sees you voyage on an immigrant ship where mysterious events begin to unwind a huge riddle.

It comes from the creators of Netflix’s hit German series, DARK.

Dead to Me is one of Netflix’s best shows and while I’d be hesitant to call it underrated, it’s certainly deserving of taking more of an upfront spot in Netflix’s vast library.

After three seasons, the story will close with the final 10 episodes, which all hit Netflix today.

Here’s the official synopsis for the final season of Dead to Me:

“Jen and Judy return for the third and final season. In the aftermath of yet another hit and run, both women receive shocking news, and are ready to risk their lives for a friendship that’s above the law.”

Bantú Mama (2021)

Rating: TV-MA
Language: Spanish
Genre: Drama
Director: Ivan Herrera
Cast: Clarisse Albrecht, Euris Javiel, Johnny Morales Jr.
Writer: Clarisse Albrecht, Ivan Herrera
Runtime: 77 min / 1h 17m

Coming to Netflix in multiple select regions today, including the United States, is a new Spanish-language movie that comes via Ava DuVernay’s ARRAY Releasing, which has an output deal with Netflix.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie as per ARRAY:

“A French woman of African descent manages to escape after being arrested in the Dominican Republic. She finds shelter in the most dangerous district of Santo Domingo, where she is taken in by a group of children. By becoming their protégée and maternal figure, she experiences an unimaginable change in her destiny.”

The movie is only available with its original Spanish audio but does have English subtitles.
