New Releases on Netflix: August 23rd, 2019

13 Reasons Why Season 3 – Picture: Netflix

It’s Friday and Netflix is ending the rather lackluster week in terms of new releases with quite a few must-watch new titles. Here’s your complete look at what’s new on Netflix and what’s left Netflix for August 23rd, 2019. 

As we’ve mentioned several times this week, this week hasn’t been great for new releases but that’s all about to change as next week and even the entire month of September 2019 will have some fantastic new releases.

13 Reasons Why (Season 3)

Genre: Drama, Mystery
Cast: Amy Hargreaves, Caleb Pilkenton, Michael Sadler, Dylan Minnette
Runtime: 60 min
Language: English

The often controversial yet insanely popular teen drama 13 Reasons Why is back for its third outing. The series has certainly morphed from its original adaptation of the book of the same name with this season becoming a whodunnit season.

This season asks the question: “Who killed Bryce Walker?”.

Also, the panel show that accompanies the main season called “Beyond the Reasons” has also returned for a third season. It only features one episode and runs for 17 minutes.


Rust Valley Restorers (Season 1) Netflix Original

Genre: Cars, Reality
Cast: Michael Daingerfield
Language: English

Car reality shows are incredibly popular and that’s why it’s no surprise Netflix decided to pick up the exclusive streaming rights to Rust Valley Restorers from Canada.

The series sees a group of car collectors turn old rust buckets into sought after retro cars.

All eight episodes of season 1 are now streaming on Netflix.


The Congress (2013)

Genre: Animation, Drama, Sci-Fi
Director: Ari Folman
Cast: Robin Wright, Harvey Keitel, Sami Gayle, Jon Hamm
Runtime: 122 min

This genre-bending sci-fi movie featuring Robin Wright is our must-watch movie of the week. It sees the actress play herself desperate to find a new role as an actress. She finds one which sends her into an animated world full of adventure.

The movie itself is based on the 1971 novel The Futurological Congress and as we said above, this is the best movie added to Netflix this week, if not the entire month.
