Netflix Is Adding 19 New Movies/TV Shows This Week

The Frozen Ground

It’s time to look ahead at what Netflix will be delivering over the following week, and it’s another hefty haul coming up across the next seven days. Interestingly, there aren’t many recognizable films and TV shows in this batch, making it more of a showcase of foreign cinema and television and underrated or unseen gems.

Without further ado, though, take a look below at the full list of what’s being added to the streaming site’s library from Monday, August 24th to Sunday, August 30th:

August 25th

Many of the new additions due this week are Netflix originals. Monday, for instance, brings educational series Emily’s Wonder Lab and Trinkets, the second and final season of the teen drama. Other highlights dropping throughout the week include Paralympic Games documentary Rising Phoenix, follow-up crime series I AM A KILLER: Released and Spanish-Argentinian crime film Unknown Origins. 

There’s also a lot of great non-original content, too, though. Tuesday brings Lingua Franca, as directed, written, produced by and starring Filipino trans filmmaker Isabel Sandoval, while the next day adds 2013’s The Frozen Ground, starring Nicolas Cage, and Taiwanese horror The Bridge Curse. Friday, meanwhile, sees both seasons to date of Cobra Kai. Originally streamed on YouTube Red, the Karate Kid spinoff has been picked up by Netflix for its upcoming third season.
