New Releases on Netflix: August 21st, 2019

Published on EST

Hyperdrive season 1 now streaming on Netflix

We’re midway through the week and as expected, it’s a very quiet week for brand new Netflix releases. Today we saw four new results but only two are English releases. Here’s a full look at what’s new on Netflix and what’s left for August 21st.

In replace of lots of new releases this week, Netflix has been dropping plenty of news. We just got the September 2019 release list in full and the release date for Big Mouth season 3.

For now, here’s what’s new on Netflix today:

American Factory (2019)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Steven Bognar, Julia Reichert
Runtime: 110 mins

American Factor ushers in the first of many productions that Netflix will be co-producing alongside the Obamas.

This documentary takes us to Ohio and takes a look at a Chinese billionaire who took over an abandoned factory and now hires over two thousand employees.

Reviews have been mixed for the documentary from users which is likely down to the political nature of who’s behind it. However, critics have been far kinder with it currently scoring 84 on Metacritic.

Hyperdrive (Season 1)

Genre: Reality-TV
Cast: Michael Bisping

If you feel the need for speed (apologies) then Hyperdrive is for you. Mixing the likes of Fastest Car and Top Gear with the competition elements of Ultimate Beastmaster and American Ninja is this 10 episode tournament series produced by Charlize Theron.

The series pits racers in some of the worlds fastest cars competing on the largest automotive obstacle course.
