Home returns to Netflix – Picture: Dreamworks

Only three new releases have hit Netflix so far this week and we’ll recap those new titles below and see how the top 10 movies and TV series are looking for May 25th, 2021. 

Despite being typically quite light early in the week, Netflix’s release schedule towards the latter half of this week is looking particularly strong.

As always, you can find an expanded list of what’s new on Netflix via our new on Netflix hub.

Now let’s get into today (and yesterday’s) new releases:

With The Secret Life of Pets 2 leaving Netflix in just a few weeks, Netflix is getting back Home today which originally released in cinemas 6 years ago (and has already appeared on Netflix in the past).

The movie isn’t among Dreamwork’s strongest library titles but features enough high-profile names to make it worth a watch if you haven’t already.
