If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best additions on Netflix USA. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix USA:

It’s been a fairly quiet week this week but there are still some great additions to Netflix UK. A popular addition this week has been a new festive Original film Father Christmas Is Back. Starring Elizabeth Hurley, John Cleese, Kelsey Grammer and more, the film sees four feuding sisters meeting up over Christmas in their English manor house where they get a crash course in family togetherness when their long-lost father shows up. In the action-packed film Seized a former special forces agent’s son gets kidnapped and he must take out three rival crime syndicates in order to see his son again. Set in 1920s New York, Passing tells the story of two childhood friends, both with mixed-race parents – one has been ‘passing’ as white all their life the other has been ‘passing’ as black – both with a very different circle of friends. Their renewed acquaintance ignites a mutual obsession that threatens both of their carefully constructed realities.

Other films worth mentioning this week include the new Original action film Red Notice. The film stars Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot as two rival criminals who end up teaming with the FBI’s top profiler (Dwayne Johnson) for a daring, comedic and action-packed heist. In the vampire horror film Let Me In a bullied 12 year old boy befriends a young girl who moves in next door – she helps him stand up to the bullies but she also holds a dark secret…

For TV this week we have a new animated series based on League of Legends started this week with the first three episodes of Arcane. The series follows two sisters who fight on rival sides of a war between magic technologies and clashing convictions. Season 2 of the Mexican-American series Gentefied sees the family continue to survive through the gentrification of their LA neighborhood. And finally for TV we have a new reality show Swap Shop which follows a radio show that helps collectors across America get the latest scoop on sweet deals to add to their collection of cars, comics, creepy clown statues and more.

Documentaries this week include the new natural history series Animal – a four part show that follows the lives of eight animal families. The Last Forest is a Brazilian film that uses a mixture of dramatisation and documentary to depict the Indigenous Yanomami tribe’s way of life and their struggle to preserve it. And finally this week we have a German docuseries Your Life Is a Joke which sees comedian Oliver Polak gets to know celebrities at some of their favorite spots before roasting them with good-natured stand-up sets.
