Netflix Is Adding A Ton Of Great Movies This Week To Help You Self-Isolate

Now that we're self-isolating at home to help defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, this may be the perfect opportunity to catch up on things that have been in our Netflix watchlist for a long while.


Now that we’re self-isolating at home to help defeat the COVID-19 pandemic, this may be the perfect opportunity to catch up on things that have been in our Netflix watchlist for a long while.

The novel coronavirus, a mutated strand from the family of coronaviruses, originated from Wuhan, China late last year, but currently, every single country in the world is battling the outbreak. As of now, more than 714,000 people have contracted the disease and 33,617 have passed away due to severe cases of acute respiratory syndrome. In the US alone, more than 139,000 patients have been identified and approximately 158 million people are under lockdown across all 50 states. While the ramifications of the COVID-19 may have dealt the world of economics an unprecedented blow, business models like Netflix have profited from people spending more time at home with little to do.

Now, obviously, the platform has enough TV shows and movies in its library to support users through many years of a pandemic such as this, but in case you’ve been going through the streaming site looking for things to binge-watch and couldn’t find anything interesting, this list of what’s coming to Netflix this week might help you out, with a huge influx of titles from distributors like Universal, Sony, Warner Bros. and more all on the way.
