Welcome back to another recap of what’s new on Netflix over the past 7 days. It’s been a busy week of Netflix releases with a mixture of new movies and shows dropping throughout the week. We’ll also see what’s featured in the Netflix US top 10s for the past 7 days too. 

If you missed any of the additions from Netflix US last week, head back to see all 43 new releases added.


New on Netflix This Weekend

Concluding the run of stand-up specials recorded at Netflix’s first big stand-up comedy festival in Los Angeles earlier this year is the addition of a compilation episode today (which comes much later than originally billed).

As you can see above, it features segments from some of the biggest names to feature at the festival.

Netflix has now released eight specials (not including this compilation) from the event.

That includes:

  • Jane Fonda & Lily Tomlin: Ladies Night Live
  • Snoop Dogg’s F*cn Around: Comedy Special
  • Pete Davison Presents The Best Friends
  • Bill Burr Presents Friends Who Kill
  • The Hall Honoring George Carlin, Robin Williams, Joan Rivers and Richard Pryor

Umma (2022)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery
Director: Iris K. Shim
Cast: Sandra Oh, Fivel Stewart, Dermot Mulroney
Writer: Iris K. Shim
Runtime: 83 min

At the last second, Netflix pulled the Sony movie Uncharted from its July 15th release date to instead now release it in August 2022. Another title that was no longer on Netflix’s schedule was Umma, but when Saturday rolled around, we did actually get the Sandra Oh horror movie which was released earlier in the year.

Here’s what you can expect from the horror:

“Living a quiet life on a farm with her daughter, a woman must confront her past when the remains of her estranged mother arrive from Korea.”
