Just a quick reminder if you want to get sent what’s new on Netflix Australia weekly, there’s an email subscription box at the end of the article.

For now, let’s get into some highlights.

Homeland and Prison Break Return

Two of the big series making their way back onto Netflix Australia today is Homeland and Prison Break. Both of these excellent series went missing from Netflix Australia but we’re happy to report they’ve made their return today.

Prison Break is about one brother getting arrested to hopefully get his older brother out of trouble. All five seasons are now on Netflix AU.

Homeland, on the other hand, is about a CIA agent who is tasked with finding out whether a man who has returned home from being a prisoner of war is, in fact, now working for the other side. Homeland seasons 1-7 is now on Netflix AU.

Hollywood (Limited Series)

Seasons: 1
Genre: Drama
Cast: David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Joe Mantello, Dylan McDermott

One of our most anticipated series for 2020 has been Hollywood. The glitzy look back at the golden years of Hollywood is finally here and while reviews seem to be mixed, it’s not stopping our excitement. We follow young and upcoming actors trying to make it big.

On top of all the drama, you can expect a solid soundtrack and excellent cast which we’ve written a big guide for here.


Our Top Movie Picks

As it’s the first of the month, Netflix has renewed a bunch of movie licenses meaning we get a selection of older movies added for our enjoyment. Here are our favorites from the new titles:

  • Tom Hanks features in the excellent follow-up to The Davinci Code with Angels & Demons which in our opinion, is a far superior movie.
  • The superb Labyrinth is now on Netflix featuring the late David Bowie. The Jim Henson movie is still regarded highly among fans despite the fact it opened to a luke-warm critic reception.
  • Chris Rock, Bill Murray and Lawrence Fishburne are among the big names that featured in Osmosis Jones, the half-animated and half-live-action comedy.
