Happy Friday and welcome to your rundown of everything new on Netflix for the weekend. There are 9 new movies and 12 new TV series to cover so let’s dig in. As always, we’ll also let you know what’s trending in Netflix’s top 10s for August 19th, 2022.
Netflix US saw several high-profile licensed shows return over the past few days. We saw all five seasons of The Originals come back, seasons 1-5 of Reign, and seasons 1-12 of Criminal Minds.
This weekend is the last time you’ll be able to watch The Conjuring on Netflix because it leaves on Sunday. We’d also recommend binging through Young & Hungry as that leaves Netflix in full next week.
Two major titles are coming to Netflix over the weekend. Fullmetal Alchemist The Revenge of Scar drops tomorrow and A Cowgirl’s Song drops Sunday.
Genre: Drama, Mystery, Thriller
Cast: Michelle Monaghan, Matt Bomer, Karen Robinson, Jonathan Tucker, Daniel Sunjata, Ali Stroker
Runtime: 48 mins
Adding to Netflix’s growing library of limited series this weekend is the new mystery thriller series, Echoes which comes from Endemol Shine Australia.
Here’s what you can expect from the new series:
“Identical twins Leni and Gina have secretly switched places for years. But when one sister disappears, both of their lives start to fall apart.”
Reviews have been mixed with Variety, comparing the limited series as a mix between Firefly Lane and Behind Her Eyes.
Genre: Drama, Fantasy, Horror
Cast: Tom Sturridge, Boyd Holbrook, Patton Oswalt
Writer: Neil Gaiman, David S. Goyer, Allan Heinberg
As we’ve reported on via our season 2 previewThe Sandman was due to get a bonus episode and that dropped out of the blue early this morning.
The episode, titled A Dream of A Thousand Cats / Calliope, features two stories, one that’s an animated version The Sandman and the other, a new live-action story that features the cast of the main series.
Genre: Animation, Short, Action
Cast: Dave Droxler, Sil Van Der Zwan, Hunter Jones
Writer: Niki Lopez, Leslie Valdes, Valerie Walsh
Runtime: 30 min
Netflix added two major kids’ titles today. The main title is the heavily publicized second season of The Cuphead Show! but the one title that came out of nowhere was Nick Jr’s Santiago of the Seas.
The series joins a slew of other Nickelodeon shows on Netflix and is a must-watch for kids, particularly if they enjoyed the recently released movie, The Sea Beast.
Here’s the logline for the first season:
“Sail the oceans with Santiago, a brave and bilingual young pirate, as he and cousin Tomás, mermaid Lorelai and more friends protect their island home.”
