New On Netflix: This Weekend’s Lineup

Netflix drip-feeds new movies and TV shows to its service intermittently throughout the week. However, the weekend is when the premium content hits. Here’s everything that is set to appear over the next three days – from new Star Trek: Discovery to train-wreck documentary FYRE: The Greatest Party That Never Happened.

This is a pretty big weekend for sci-fi and genre fans. In addition to the aforementioned Star Trek: Discovery Season 2, there’s also another season of The Punisher and sci-fi original IO about a devastated future Earth.

The animated series Carmen Sandiego also makes its debut (loosely based on the classic video game) and there’s a slew of fresh documentaries and standup comedies too. Here’s the full list!
