Welcome to your first daily roundup of what’s new on Netflix (US) for this week, where we’ll be looking through all six new movies, seven new series, and a new mobile game added to the streamer so far this week.
Quite a few titles still to come this week, including not least the brand new Spy Kids movie that sees Robert Rodriguez returning to the director’s chair on the over-the-top franchise.
On the removal front, you only have hours left to watch In Darkness (2018) with other titles set to leave in the coming days, including The Vanishing (2018), My Mother’s Wound (2016), and Animal World (2018).
Best New Releases on Netflix This Week So Far
National Champions (2021)
Genre: Drama, Sport
Director: Ric Roman Waugh
Cast: Stephan James, J.K. Simmons, Alexander Ludwig
Writer: Adam Mervis
Runtime: 116 min / 1h 56m
In a surprise addition today (Netflix didn’t include it in its September 2023 schedule) is the STX Films feature-film National Champions.
“Determined to win his first title, a college coach struggles to keep his life and team together when his quarterback goes on strike against the NCAA.”
If you’re a fan of All American and can’t wait for the new season, which has been delayed due to the strikes, this should be a perfect stopgap.
In their review of the movie, ReadySteadyCut concluded that both the main actors “give a knockout turn in the flawed but highly entertaining National Champions,” ultimately handing it a 3-star rating.
Sex Education (Season 4)
Number of episodes: 8
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa
Writer: Laurie Nunn
Runtime: 45 min
Today comes the bittersweet news that Sex Education has come to an end at the streaming service four years after the first touched down. It’s been a whirlwind adventure for the teens who have now moved up from High School into Sixth Form College.
Reviews haven’t been particularly strong for the final season, with DiscussingFilm noting that the final season falters under the weight of its giant cast.
New Amsterdam (Season 5)
Number of episodes: 13
Cast: Ryan Eggold, Janet Montgomery, Jocko Sims
Runtime: 43 min
If you’re looking for a show you can now binge from start to finish on Netflix, now is your chance to do just that with New Amsterdam that saw its fifth and final season added to the streamer.
Season 5 of the medical drama sees Dr. Goodwin trying to come to terms with his recent breakup all while dealing with the regular headaches of running a hospital.
All 89 episodes will now reside on Netflix for the foreseeable future.
