After releasing a bumper crop of content last week, Netflix is having a bit of a quiet one this time around. Sadly, there are no new Netflix Original movies and only a handful of licensed films.
On the plus side, there are six new series to check out, including Season 6 of the popular cop comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine , the Japanese crime drama Giri / Haji and another season of the DC superhero show Titans. Here are the trailers and synopses for everything on Netflix this week.
