The past few Fridays have been pretty great for Netflix content. A slew of popular third-party movies were added to the service, along with new Netflix Originals like Dirty John and The Umbrella Academy. Can they keep the momentum up? Let's find out!

Here's everything coming to Netflix this weekend (February 22 to February 24.)

Tonight's lineup is a bit of a letdown after the past fortnight especially when it comes to original content. With that said, there are still a handful of things to get semi-excited about.

Noteworthy additions for the weekend include a new season of the critically acclaimed Suburra, Chef's Table Season 6, surreal love story Paris Is Us and the so-bad-it's-good Jupiter Ascending. Holocaust drama The Photographer of Mauthausen also looks interesting. Here's the full list.
