The Netflix grind always brings a slew of new content on a weekly basis, and whatever the streaming service’s latest buzzworthy original is the weekend prior almost instantly finds itself receding into the shadows of the cultural conversation whenever a shiny new toy for subscribers comes along.
While the platform typically tends to drop big hitters on a Wednesday and Friday for the most part, this week starts off with a bang when The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf premieres on Monday, encapsulating Netflix’s approach to expanding the library in microcosm.
It’s one of the countless video game adaptations in the works behind the scenes, it fits the anime mold the company are increasingly hedging their bets on, and it’s also a spinoff from one of the streamer’s most popular live-action TV shows ever. Based on that trio of factors, expect Nightmare of the Wolf to be troubling the higher end of the Top 10 in 24 hours or less.
Of course, there’s much more than that coming to the streaming wars’ dominant force between now and next Sunday, and you can check them all out below.

Not a great deal of what you’d call ‘must-see’ content, but The November Man is a solid little Pierce Brosnan actioner that stands a great chance of becoming a Netflix sleeper hit, while all of the usual boxes are ticked in terms of documentaries, original episodic ventures, in-house films and everything in between.
