Howdy, friends. We’re going to dive right back into Netflix’s new releases for the week starting today, 14 September all the way up to Sunday, 20 September.
After a slow-ish weekend for new and exciting content, Netflix is back to make the new streaming week worth our time.
Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson will be gracing our screens in The Devil All The Time — “a deliciously ripe gothic melodrama” as reviewed by The Guardian. You can also expect a new animated adult series, a returning series about tacos, our favourite street food, a dramatic prequel to One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, and a new doco about the Challenger space shuttle which launched and landed nine times before breaking apart 73 seconds later.
There’s a lot more in the list below to keep you busy this week. Happy watching.
