All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 16th March 2018)

One of the great things about Netflix is their Netflix Original content – 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 Thursday evening with what will be available over the coming week. 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.

As Netflix increase their Original content, here’s our ‘Top Picks’ list for this week. (Full summary of Original additions at the end of the post).


Re-make of the 1974 family movie in which a lovable stray dog finds acceptance from siblings that need him as much as he needs them. Benji is back to save the day in this modern twist and nothing can stop him with his courageous attitude. Written and directed by Brandon Camp (who happens to be the son of Joe Camp, the director of the 1974 movie) and starring Gabriel Bateman and Darby Camp, the film looks set to be a great tribute to the original movie and it’s many spin off series that followed.
