Now let’s move onto what’s new on Netflix for May 15th, 2019.

Call the Midwife (Season 8)

Genre: Drama, History
Cast: Vanessa Redgrave, Laura Main, Jenny Agutter, Judy Parfitt
Runtime: 60 min

The BBC/PBS series Call the Midwife is back on Netflix slightly earlier than we expected with new seasons traditionally releasing in September. The new season sees two new nuns arrive at the hospital for this season.

The period drama transports us back to the 1950s and 1960s and is about the lives of midwives working during the post World War 2 baby boom.

Only the United States got Call the Midwife today with other regions coming later.

Backdraft 2 (2019)

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Director: Gonzalo López-Gallego
Cast: Donald Sutherland, William Baldwin, Joe Anderson, Alastair Mackenzie

This 2019 direct to video sequel of the 1991 title sees a fireman track down a notorious criminal using fire to distract from his other illicit activities. Backdraft 2 will be making its debut on Netflix which will serve as the exclusive streaming home although it isn’t being carried as a Netflix Original.

Reviews so far haven’t been great but the appearance of Donald Sutherland alone should make this a good watch.


All the Devil’s Men (2018)

Genre: Action
Director: Matthew Hope
Cast: Sylvia Hoeks, William Fichtner, Elliot Cowan, Milo Gibson
Runtime: 99 min

With multiple huge Hollywood stars coming together in an action thriller, you’d have thought the movie would’ve been a home run right? Well, not quite. This movie which released in cinemas last December didn’t quite get the critical reception of fan reception it was after.

The movie is about a soldier turned bounty hunter heading to London to take down an ex-CIA operative.

Dennis and Gnasher Unleashed (Season 1)

Genre: Animation
Cast: Freddie Fox, Kelly Marie Stewart, Kathryn Drysdale, Ryan Sampson

Looking for something new for the kids today? Dennis and Gnasher’s adventures in this TV series could be it. The two characters come from a classic British comic book series called the Beano. It’s about a mischievous group of kids that create crazy plans taking on big challenges.
