The Game (Seasons 1-3) is back on Netflix

Happy Saturday and unlike normal, we’ve got a batch of new additions to kickstart your weekend which is a mixed bag in the grand scheme of things with mostly foreign titles making up the 7 new releases today. We’ll also see what’s trending in the top 10 TV series and movies too. 

Before we take a look into what’s new on Netflix for today, let’s first take a look at a couple of highlights from the days next arrivals.

The Game (3 Seasons)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance, Sport
Cast: Hosea Chanchez, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Coby Bell, Pooch Hall

As part of Netflix’s numerous summer/fall Black sitcom pickups, we see the return of The Game today which streamed on Netflix previously between 2014 and 2016.

Here’s what you can expect if you’ve never watched before:

“Medical school student Melanie adjusts to life in the world of professional sports when her boyfriend Derwin becomes a pro football player.”

Only the first three seasons dropped on Netflix today. The remainder of the seasons aired on BET after but is still distributed by CBS Television. Hopefully, Netflix will be able to get these seasons at a later date.

Stranger (Season 2)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Cast: Seung-woo Cho, Doona Bae, Joon-hyuk Lee, Jae-myung Yoo

If you’ve never got into K-dramas, Stranger provides as an excellent introduction to the genre of television originating from South Korea.

The police detective drama features Bae Doona and Cho Seung-woo as they look to continue uncovering corruption and find justice for victims.
