Speaking of August, you’ll want to keep an eye on our August 2021 Netflix UK preview which is due for an update later today with a bunch of new movies scheduled. Likewise, you’ll want to be planning your weekend around some of the removals next week and beyond.

Now let’s get into what’s new and what’s trending on Netflix UK starting with some highlights for the week:

Best New Movies & TV Shows on Netflix UK This Week

InuYasha (Season 1)

Genre: Anime
Cast: Kappei Yamaguchi, Satsuki Yukino, Kumiko Watanabe

As classic anime goes, you can get more classic than the 2000 series InuYasha which dropped every episode of season 1 Netflix UK this week.

Presented in its original 4:3 form, the stunning series comes from
Rumiko Takahashi and is well-regarded in the anime community.

The series follows a young schoolgirl who teams up with a half-demon to retrieve the shards that are scattered around that come from a sacred jewel.

The Current War (2017)

Genre: Biopic
Director: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
Cast: Benedict Cumberbatch, Michael Shannon, Nicholas Hoult, Katherine Waterston, Tom Holland

If an all-star Hollywood movie biopic is what you’re after, The Current War is a superb choice although it wasn’t exactly beloved by critics when it was first released four years ago.

Here’s what you can expect from the movie that retells the story of an old and famous feud:

“Rivals Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse find themselves in a frenzied race to determine whose electrical system will power the modern world.”

Myth & Mogul: John DeLorean (Season 1)

Genre: Crime Docuseries

Despite being co-produced by the BBC, Myth & Mogul lands on Netflix before the BBC today in full.


The stunning docu-series takes you back and looks over the life of the American engineer John DeLorean who is most famous for the car named in his honor which was popularized by Back to the Future.

The docuseries takes you through the inventor’s rapid rise and fall in the space.
