Welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix this week. So far this week, Netflix has added five new releases, and we’ll recap them all below, plus check in with the Netflix top 10s.
This week will be much lighter than usual on new releases, but that’s because of the influx of news we’ve been getting over the past 24 hours. The major new releases still to come to Netflix this week are The Night Agent and the next season of Love is Blind.
On the removal front this week, we’d recommend binging through Shtisel faster if you have any remaining episodes, as it departs on March 26th. Likewise, Arrested Development is still expected to be removed from the library, but that’s subject to change.
