One of the great things about Netflix are their Netflix Originals – be it films or series made by Netflix themselves or exclusive content available only on Netflix after it airs on regular TV. Every week we will give you a round up of new Netflix Originals becoming available in the next week. We will aim to post every week on Wednesday evening with what will be available over the coming week starting the following Friday. Perfect if you’re looking to check out what new Originals are available to watch over your weekend or if you’re planning a week long Netflix binge watch! This area is exclusively for Netflix Originals, for general Netflix additions and removals or to view the current full catalogue check out your regional New On Netflix website.
So this week is a double post. Partly as June is so quiet for Netflix Originals and partly so I can go on holiday next week!
Flaked (Season Two)
First up and actually the only Netflix Original this week is the second season of the series ‘Flaked.’ Main character, recovering alcoholic ‘Chip’ returns to Venice, California and finds he is far from welcome. The journey to recovery and dealing with the past is harder than ever.
Season one remains available (at time of this post) and season two will be available globally from Friday 2nd June 2017.
Orange is the New Black (Season Five)
Brand new and long-term, die hard ‘OITNB’ fans will be ecstatic that the wait is finally over! The end of season 4 was dramatic to say the least and left fans counting down the days. Who (if anyone) got shot? What will be the repercussions of Poussey’s tragic exit and the subsequent cover up from the top down? Will the women fight against the abhorrent overcrowding and severe treatment of the inmates by the primarily ex-military personnel. We’re sure to find out all of this and much more! Fans can buckle up as the series is going nowhere with a season 6 & 7 already commissioned.
‘Orange is the New Black’ Season Five will be available globally from Friday 9th June 2017.
In what Netflix describe as a “Darkly comic, crime thriller” ‘Shimmer Lake’ A local sheriff is hunting down three bank robbers. One of them happens to be his own brother!
