Lucifer, The Wandering Earth, Queen of the South new on Netflix this week

It’s time to recap the week that was with all the new Netflix releases over the last 7 days. We’ve got your complete list of new titles plus some highlights and we’ll take a look if any of the new titles broke into our list of the most popular new titles released this week.

Let’s quickly compare against the other regions. The US got 49 titles this week and that’s compared against the 47 new titles for Australia, 47 for the UK and 46 for Canada.

Here are our top four titles added this week that should absolutely be on your list this weekend:

Queen of the South (Season 3)

USA Network’s Queen of the South continues to gain steam as it’s easily the comparable title to Breaking Bad. It stars Alice Braga who has fled into America but falls into her previous life and begins building up a drug empire.

This show is due to return in June and should be on everyone’s list particularly if you loved Breaking Bad.

Lucifer (Season 4) Netflix Original Series

Netflix’s revival season of Lucifer is now out in the wild and fans are going nuts for it. The fourth season sees the return of all your favorite characters in a slimmer yet more defined season.

The series is about the devil who comes to Earth as he’s bored reigning in hell. All eyes are now on season 5 of Lucifer which hopefully will get a swift renewal.

POSE (Season 1)

We’ve highlighted this release from FX for two reasons. Firstly, most FX titles don’t find their way onto Netflix but secondly, it’s produced by Ryan Murphy who will soon be producing exclusive titles for Netflix.

The series is set in the late 1980s in a diverse New York and focuses on the changing cultures of the city.

The Wandering Earth (2019)

You may have seen some outlets call this the biggest title Netflix has never promoted and there’s probably some truth to that. The Wandering Earth is one of the biggest budget Chinese movies of all times and it shows. It’s a sci-fi epic.

It arrived on Netflix exclusively around the world as an Original on April 30th but only came to Netflix in the US on May 5th. The translations can be a bit spotty at times plus it’s a very different movie from its Western counterparts but is worth your time.

In terms of the new titles that rocketed into the most popular list includes:

  • Queen of the South (Season 3) is currently number 1
  • Last Breath (Documentary) is number 4
  • The Wandering Earth (2019) number 12
  • War Horse (2011) number 23
