What’s Coming to Netflix This Week: Must-Watch Series to Add to Your Queue

Looking for your next binge-worthy series? Netflix has got you covered!

There are new shows dropping left and right this week. Watch as the Robinsons navigate life on an alien planet, a detective investigates his cold case and a gender nonconforming twentysomething gets a job at beauty mogul Madolyn Addison’s company.

The long-awaited adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s beloved comic series is finally coming to Netflix.

Kong: Skull Island

The big-screen remake of Kong aims to take the franchise back to its roots. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts assembles some terrific scenes, including one shot of Kong silhouetted against the setting sun and taking out helicopters in slo-mo. But there’s also an overreliance on kiddie-play daydreams and graphic violence that just a few years ago would have earned the picture an R rating.

The movie takes place in the King Kong universe established by Gareth Edwards’ 2014 film Godzilla, and it stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman. It’s set to debut in regular and IMAX theaters March 10. The spinoff series Human Resources returns with more animated creatures, including Hormone Monster (Nick Kroll) and Logic Rock (Randall Park). It’s the story of a gender nonconforming guy who lands a job at famed makeup mogul Madolyn Addison.

The Killing

A surgeon makes an unthinkable sacrifice in the gripping new drama starring Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman.

Seattle homicide detectives Linden and Holder investigate another grim case in this dark, acclaimed crime series. It’s also available on Hulu.

This docuseries focuses on six distinct murder cases, each of which involves a college student. Per IMDb, it uses “in-depth interviews, authentic archival material, and cinematic recreations” to tell each victim’s story.

Jason Bateman fans will find a different side of him on Ozark, where he stars as Marty Byrde, a financial advisor who gets involved in a money-laundering scheme with Mexican drug cartels.

The Clover Kingdom

Black Clover is set in a world divided into four kingdoms with powerful mages who compete to join the best Magic Knight guilds. Asta and Yuno belong to the Clover Kingdom which is rumored to be the strongest of them all.

As the prestigious Triumph, a fighting tournament that only happens once a decade, begins, the Clover Kingdom is celebrating. However, behind the scenes a dark plan is unfolding. Julius Novachrono’s predecessor Wizard King, Conrad Leto, has broken his seal and aims to use the Imperial Sword Elsdocia to resurrect three Wizard Kings: Edward Avalache, Princia Funnybunny, and Jester Garandros, and take over the Clover Kingdom.

Grey’s Anatomy

Grey’s Anatomy, the medical drama from Shonda Rhimes that has been on for 18 seasons, is finally returning. The show’s iconic main character, Ellen Pompeo as Dr Meredith Grey, and her fellow doctors work at Seattle Grace Hospital. They are frequently faced with life-or-death decisions and struggle to balance their professional and personal lives.

Whether it’s a patient with an active bomb inside them, or a doctor committing insurance fraud to save a kidnapped child, the show has never been afraid of taking risks and pushing boundaries. Its boldness has kept audiences hooked since its 2005 debut.

The Wizard King

Anime fans can rejoice as Black Clover: Sword of the Wizard King has released its first dub trailer. It looks like the film brought back all of the main dub actors so fans should be able to hear their favorite voices.

The film follows young Asta, who was born with no magic ability in a world where magic is everything. He wants to overcome adversity and keep his promise with his friend, and dreams of becoming the greatest mage in the world—the Wizard King! The original story is supervised by Black Clover creator Yuki Tabata. The film also stars Gakuto Kajiwara as Asta, Nobunaga Shimazaki as Yuno, Junichi Suwabe as Yami Sukehiro, and Fumiya Takahashi as Lovilia.

The Good Place

In an era of Peak TV, few shows have the lofty ambitions and charming performances of this wry comedy from Michael Schur. Kristen Bell stars as Eleanor Shellstrop, a neuroscientist who dies and winds up in the Good Place, but she tries to become a better person with help from her soulmate Chidi Anagonye and friends like snobby Tahani (Jameela Jamil) and dim Jason (Manny Jacinto).

Paul Scheer plays the avuncular architect who designed this quasi-secular heaven of froyo shops and dream houses, while D’Arcy Carden is the scene-stealing afterlife Siri and Maya Rudolph is Gen, an eternal judge who rules on interdimensional issues.

The Good Fight

The Good Fight wrapped up its sixth season with a finale that felt like a natural extension of the series’ pilot, when Julianna Margulies’ Alicia Florrick slapped her unfaithful state’s attorney husband. Now, as violence erupts and people worry about a civil war, the lawyers at Diane Lockhart’s firm struggle to make sense of what’s happening outside their doors.

The new season premieres Sept. 8 on Paramount+, with Christine Baranski returning as Diane and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star and Emmy winner Andre Braugher joining the cast as Ri’Chard Lane. A new trailer dropped Wednesday, revealing that the pair will form a firm with new partner Liz Reddick (Audra McDonald). Amid the escalating turmoil, a jolt of clarity comes from a Dr. Lyle Bettancourt (John Slattery).

The Great British Baking Show

With apologies to Strictly Come Dancing, it’s time to get a little sugar-coated with this teeth-achingly sweet competition. Contestants are pitted against one another to create everything from petit fours to luscious Key lime pie.

It’s soothing, low-key fare without the ego-stroking nonsense you find in flashier competition shows. And who could forget hosts Mel and Sue, who deliver delightful banter and are always ready to help a baker out with a quick fix?

Despite a few attempts at pathos (Francesca lamenting her childlessness, for example), the show remains as delightful as a freshly baked cinnamon roll.

The Orville

MacFarlane’s homage to classic sci-fi series like Star Trek adds a layer of humor and satire. Family Guy creator and star Seth MacFarlane stars as Captain Ed Mercer on the U.S.S. Orville, which features Adrianne Palicki as Commander Grayson and Scott Grimes as Lt. Gordon Malloy.

The season three premiere finds the Orville crew navigating new frontiers, while dealing with issues like suicide, grief, and xenophobia. This season’s special effects look a lot more polished, and the beats of workplace situational humor seem tamped down and more effectively integrated — especially since Family Guy and Cleveland Show vet Mike Henry joined the cast as the oddball Dr. Claire Finn.
