All this week’s Netflix Originals (Available from Friday 28th December 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 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.

Christmas 2018 is done, we’ve all lost track of what day we’re on and have had just about enough left over Christmas dinner as we can stomach. As we draw the year to a close why not let us know in the comments what you are hoping Netflix will add to the catalogue in 2019. For now here’s our ‘Top Picks’ for this week…
(Full list of this week’s additions at the bottom of the post).
