The Punisher (Season 2) Netflix Original
The Punisher is back for his second solo outing on Netflix but could potentially be his last. The second season sees the character morph into what you’re more accustomed to if you’re a fan of the comics. That doesn’t mean it’s not a brutal series as it has buckets of blood splattered throughout.
His best outing yet and a must-watch for any fan of the Marvel series on Netflix.
FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened (2019)
Hulu tried to pounce on Netflix this week with the release of their documentary on the disaster festival but most critics seem to think Netflix’s version is far superior.
It takes accounts from all corners of the festival including the suppliers, acts and party goers.
Grace and Frankie (Season 5)
Grace and Frankie continues to be a big hit for Netflix hence the fact that it has already been renewed for season 6 likely due out either at the end of the year or at the beginning of next year.
Here’s how Netflix describes the new season:
After rebelling against their kids’ wishes, Grace and Frankie contend with work issues, ageism, the men in their lives — and each other.
There’s plenty of other titles added today. Below is the full list!
