Welcome to your midweek roundup of what’s new on Netflix (and first daily recap of the week) where we’ll be checking in on all 11 new movies and shows that have touched down on the service so far this week.
It’s the calm before the storm today with tomorrow set to see a larger number of titles than normal drop onto the service as we cross into September 2022. This is because deals for movies with big distributors like Sony and Warner Bros. come up for renewal. That means that many movies (nearly 100 by our count) will be leaving Netflix tomorrow.
You can find everything new on Netflix daily via our what’s new on Netflix section.
Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for August 31st
I Came By (2022)
Director: Babak Anvari
Writer: Babak Anvari, Namsi Khan
Runtime: 110 min
This new British produced movie is the big new Netflix Original movie of the week and features three huge names in the form of Kelly Macdonald, George MacKay, and Hugh Bonneville.
Here’s the official logline for the new movie:
“A pair of rebellious, young graffiti writers, Toby and Jay regularly target the homes of the U.K.’s wealthy elite and ruling class. When Toby breaks into the home of renowned former High Court Judge Sir Hector Blake (Hugh Bonneville) he discovers a shocking secret that leads him on a journey endangering himself and those closest to him.”
Michael: Tuesdays and Thursdays / Michael: Every Day (Season 1)
Cast: Bob Martin, Matt Watts, Tommie-Amber Pirie
Writer: Bob Martin, Matt Watts
Runtime: 22 min
Netflix rarely, if ever, picks up shows from CBC, the state broadcaster from Canada, given they’ve opted to keep their titles to themselves in recent years.
In a rare license, we saw 12 episodes of the little-known comedy sitcom series from Bob Martin and Matt Watts.
Here’s what you can expect:
“Michael’s therapist, David, is helping him conquer his countless anxieties about everyday life — and, unbeknownst to Michael, writing a book about it.”
I AM A KILLER (Season 3)
Genre: Documentary, Crime
Runtime: 52 min
Some streaming services like Discovery claim they have the best documentary library, but we’d argue that after the past two years, Netflix is by far and away the strongest.
The latest season of I AM KILLER, which comes from Transistor Films, is adding to its vast array of crime documentaries.
The subjects in season 3 include Victoria Smith, Deryl Madison, Daniel Paulsrud, James Walker, and David Cameron Keith.
