Welcome to your first daily roundup of what’s new on Netflix where we’ve got 5 new movies and TV shows to cover that have just landed on Netflix in the US (and around the world in most instances). Here’s a look at what’s new and what’s trending on Netflix for March 29th, 2022.

Quick housekeeping before we dive into the new additions. If you want to see what came to Netflix last week, there were only 16 new additions to the service in the US. This upcoming week is going to be much busier with at least 66 new arrivals planned between March 28th and April 3rd.

It’s your last chance to watch nearly 100 movies and TV shows on Netflix. If you’re looking for a quick binge, we’d suggest the David Hasselhoff series, Hoff the Record which has two really quick series to fly through. On the movie front, a few big titles for kids leaving including both Despicable Me movies so prep the kids for that loss!

Netflix has been releasing a slew of new anime onto the service so far in 2022 and one that is both bizarre and well received so far is Thermae Romae Novae which saw eleven episodes touch down on Netflix on Monday.

The series focuses on a Roman architect named Lucius who is transported through time to modern-day Japan, where he learns about Japanese bathhouses and uses this to his gain back home.

Mike Epps: Indiana Mike (2022)

Our final highlight for the day is the new Mike Epps stand-up special which is his third major special releasing onto Netflix with the other two being Don’t Take It Personal and Only One Mike.

The new special which runs just under an hour sees Epps reflecting on his days as a bad baller and as a terrible drug dealer. He also talks about his fond memories of his parents.

You can also watch Epps in Netflix’s The Upshaws which is returning for a second season.
