New Releases on Netflix: February 5th, 2020

Arrow season 8 now on Netflix in the US

Happy Wednesday and welcome to your daily recap of everything new on Netflix. Today, we’ve got five new titles on Netflix to cover so let’s get to it.

The majority of new releases today are documentaries with a number to chose from. Much of the attention will be played on the new limited series, The Pharmacist. That series tells the tragic yet uplifting story of a father looking to get justice for his son during the opioid crisis.

Now let’s move onto what else is new for February 5th, 2020.

Arrow (Season 8)

Genre: Action, Adventure, Crime, Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi
Cast: Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Katie Cassidy
Runtime: 42 min

It’s the end of an era.

Arrow is one of the longest-serving current The CW shows and ultimately has led to a slew of DC shows being produced for the network.

Here’s what you can expect from the final season of the arrow slinging vigilante.

Past and future collide in the final season as Oliver aims to save the multiverse, armed with unsettling knowledge about the sacrifice he must make.

Don’t forget that some of the Crisis on Infinite Earths arrives on Netflix via Arrow too but you’ll need to follow our guide to be able to watch the full crossover event.


Uppity: The Willy T. Ribbs Story (2020)

Genre: Documentary

It’s already going to be an excellent month for motorsport documentaries on Netflix this month with the release of F1: Drive to Survive due out soon. In the meantime, Netflix has released this one on the famous driver Willy T. Ribbs.

Dubbed as one of the most powerful stories in sports history, it looks at a man who shattered the barrier to get into motorsport.


#cats_the_mewvie (2020)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Michael Margolis
