Happy Tuesday and welcome to your first daily recap of what’s new on Netflix in the United States for March 22nd, 2022. We’ve got 9 new titles to cover including 2 Netflix Games. We’ll also check in with what’s trending in Netflix’s top 10s too.
As we covered over the weekend, Netflix’s schedule around the world has been mostly cleared out in favor of Bridgerton season 2 which hits Netflix this Friday. In the US there’s a few movies such as Blade Runner 2049 and King of Thieves to look forward to, however.
Elsewhere on Netflix so far this week, Netflix UK added the British crime film A Violent Man and Netflix Australia received Warner Brothers In the Heights. Meanwhile, Netflix Canada added Out of Death starring Bruce Willis.
So let’s take a look at some of the notable new releases so far this week:

For the most part, Netflix has lost its entire BBC library in recent years with most of their content headed exclusively for the likes of BritBox, Acorn or even HBO Max. One show that does still get updates (albeit quite a while after airing) is Call the Midwife.

For fans of international cinema, we’d recommend giving this new movie out of India a spin. Also streaming on Disney+ Hotstar, ’83 is the award-winning movie about India’s struggling cricket team overcoming the odds to make history at the 1983 World Cup.
Coming from New Zealand games developer PikPok is a remaster of an arcade-style game that will have you smashing bricks with your spaceship paddle.
It’s a remaster of a game that was released onto games consoles a decade ago complete with fresh new graphics and updated controls for mobile and tablet devices. It’s available via the Netflix app but you can also search for the game in your respective app store.
