Happy Thursday! For some, you may now be entering a long weekend and if you plan on including Netflix, you’ll want to catch some of the new releases. Here’s your full look at what’s new on Netflix and what’s trending for April 6th, 2023.

Best New Movies and Series Added to Netflix
BEEF (Season 1)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Steven Yeun, Ali Wong, Joseph Lee, Young Mazino, David Choe, Patti Yasutake
Writer: Lee Sung Jin
Runtime: 39 mins
A24 Television is behind this brand-new series that sees Ali Wong and Steven Yeun going toe-to-toe in a battle for the ages.
Certified Fresh on RottenTomatoes, the series has received glowing reviews across the board from critics, and rightly so. The Wrap concludes the series is “a cosmic tragedy and one of the best shows of the year thus far…”
Where Hands Touch (2018)
Genre: Drama, Romance, War
Director: Amma Asante
Cast: Abbie Cornish, Amandla Stenberg, George MacKay
Writer: Amma Asante
Runtime: 122 min / 2h 2m
Unexpectedly dropping on Netflix today is this Vertical Entertainment movie headlined by Amandla Stenberg (The Hate U Give, Bodies Bodies Bodies) and George MacKay (1917, Captain Fantastic).
Here’s what you can expect from the movie if it’s never crossed your radar:
“During WWII, a mixed-race girl in Nazi Germany struggles to assert her identity while passionately falling in love with an officer’s son.”
While critics weren’t very kind on the film when it released theatrically five years ago, audience scores have since been very kind with it carrying a 72% on RottenTomatoes, with reviews calling it “emotional” and “well-produced”.
The Last Stand (2013)
Genre: Action, Thriller, Western
Director: Jee-woon Kim
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Forest Whitaker, Johnny Knoxville
Writer: Andrew Knauer
Runtime: 107 min / 1h 47m
Returning to Netflix today after its first stint on the service ending in 2015 is the 2013 Arnold Schwarzenegger action movie, The Last Stand.
The plot revolves around a sheriff of a sleepy border town who finds his quiet life interrupted when a drug boss escapes FBI custody and flees into his backyard.
It’s a perfect time to revisit this movie given we’re about to be seeing a lot more of Arnie on Netflix with his brand new series FUBAR hitting the service in May 2023.
