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 the 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.
Love Netflix Originals? Well here’s our list of ‘Top Picks’ for this week. Check out the trailers below and let us know what you’re looking forward to this week -full list of this week’s additions and regional availability at the end of the post. Netflix aren’t always that clear about geographical availability so please bear with us as we try to be as precise as possible about where Netflix Originals will be available. If in doubt titles will be listed simply as [Original] in the full list at the end of the post and as ‘available in selected regions’ within the post.
13 Reasons Why (Season Three)
“Who killed Bryce Walker?” This is the question on everybody’s lips in this third season of the popular yet controversial show and the trailer goes some way to revealing who the suspects are. The small-town group of teens share secrets uncovered in the first two seasons of the show that connect them but how connected are they now? Season three is set eight months after the dramatic end of season two – you can catch up with a welcomed re-cap from Netflix HERE. Caught up? Great! So as the first season of the show covered all of the narrative of the novel by Jay Asher, season two and three are written exclusively for the show. The show has faced serious controversy over its graphic reality reflecting scenes of suicide and rape and therefore carries strong warnings. This third season does not look to be any different. Expect to be shocked and you can’t go far wrong with ‘Thirteen Reasons Why’.

Luckily local tradesman, renovator and all-round pretty boy Jake Taylor (Adam Demos) is available in a jiffy to remove his top and crack on with rebuilding the Inn!

Working Moms (Season Three)
A group of working mothers continue their haphazard lifestyles in season three of the hilarious Canadian comedy series that pulls no punches in showing the world what real motherhood looks like. Seasons one and two both landed on Netflix this year and there’s no messing about as season three arrives this week! As with previous seasons, season three will consist of 13 episodes. Producers have already confirmed they are working on Season 4 to be aired in Canada before hopefully arriving on Netflix. Season three continues with the implications of the season two cliffhanger. Viewers found out Kate’s (Catherine Reitman) husband Nathan’s (Philip Sternberg) secret and season three will be very much about the impact on Kate’s life after that.
