Happy Friday and unusually, Netflix has a small number of new releases today but it’s headlined by Space Force, the brand new comedy series from Greg Daniels. Here’s what’s new and what’s popular on Netflix US for May 29th, 2020.
You can likely expect a very quiet weekend when it comes to new releases. Only one movie is scheduled for release over the weekend with High Strung Free Dance dropping on Sunday. We’ll also have the regular Sunday episode of Patriot Act with Hasan Minaj too.
All eyes will then be on Monday when we get the first of the month additions.
Space Force (Season 1)
Cast: Steve Carell, Owen Daniels, Noah Emmerich, John Malkovich
Without a doubt, all the new releases were cleared away from Space Force and despite negative critic reviews, early indications are that it’s a hit with viewers.
The cast of Space Force is huge, headlined by Steve Carrell who reunites with the creator of the US version of The Office.
It certainly feels different from The Office but there’s a lot to be enjoyed here.
Somebody Feed Phil (Season 3)
Cast: Phil Rosenthal, Monica Horan
Our second and only other highlight for today is Somebody Feed Phil. If you’re like me, you’ve probably forgotten what the inside of a restaurant looks like right now so Somebody Feed Phil is a welcome return.
We once again follow Everybody Love Raymond’s creator around as he travels to lush countries to taste local cuisines.
