Happy Friday and welcome to your daily recap of what’s new on Netflix. Today saw almost a full house of Netflix Originals with only one licensed pickup. Here’s a breakdown of what’s new and what’s trending for September 17th, 2021.

Only one title is currently scheduled to hit Netflix over the weekend in the form of Dark Skies (2013) which is set to arrive on Sunday.

On the removals front, tomorrow will see the removal of Class Rank (2018) and on Sunday we’ll see every season of The CW show, Beauty & the Beast depart.

Best New Movies & TV Shows on Netflix

Sex Education (Season 3)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Asa Butterfield, Gillian Anderson, Ncuti Gatwa, Emma Mackey, Connor Swindells, Kedar Williams-Stirling
Writer: Laurie Nunn
Runtime: 45 min

The biggest comedy on Netflix right now is Sex Education by a country mile and it returns today with perhaps its biggest and best-reviewed entry to date.

We know that Netflix trailers viewership is often indicative as to how popular shows are and if that’s the case, Sex Education season 3 is going to be a home run.

Never checked out the show? Here’s what you can expect:

“Insecure Otis has all the answers when it comes to sex advice, thanks to his therapist mom. So rebel Maeve proposes a school sex-therapy clinic.”


Squid Game (Season 1)

Genre: Action, Thriller, Drama
Cast: Lee Jung-jae, Park Hae-soo, Wi Ha-jun, Oh Young-soo, Jung Ho-yeon, Heo Sung-tae
Runtime: 60 mins

Squid Game has been one of our most anticipated foreign titles for a while. The intriguing series sees a game show play out which is unique, to say the least.

Early reviews indicate this thriller is definitely worthy of watching and given the ending, we’ll hopefully be getting much more down the line.
