Full List of Everything Added to Netflix UK This Week (21st August 2020)

Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

We’ve just passed the ‘Mid-Month Slump’ so it’s been a fairly quiet week this week with just under 40 new titles added to Netflix UK. For films this week we have the crazy shenanigans of the JackAss crew with Jackass: The Movie where Johnny Knoxville and crew wreak havoc playing dangerous pranks and performing random stunts around the world. Inconceivable is a psychological thriller about a couple that are trying to conceive and so they bring another woman into the fold – but things might not be what they initially seem… Last year’s After The Wedding is a drama that follows the manager of an orphanage in India who heads to New York to meet a wealthy donor; but when she is invited to a wedding a number of mysteries are unravelled. And finally for films this week is the family-friendly The Sleepover where two siblings discover their mum is a former thief in witness protection and, after she is forced to pull one last job, the kids team up to rescue her over the course of an action-packed night.

For TV this week we have the first part of Lucifer season 5 which follows the Lord of Hell as he relocates to Los Angeles to run a nightclub and teams up with a local homicide detective. Biohackers is a new German Original series that follows student Mia as she attends a medical school on a secret mission to investigate the professor that may have had something to do with a family tragedy. But while there she becomes entangled in the science of biohacking – adding genes and features where they don’t belong…

Seasons 1 and 2 of Channel 4 comedy/drama series Ackley Bridge have been added to Netflix UK this week and follows the fictional school of the same name that was formed when two very different schools in a segregated community are forced to merge. Hoops is a new adult-animated comedy series that follows a foul-mouthed basketball coach who is determined for his team to succeed so that he can get a promotion to the big leagues. If you prefer some ‘reality’ TV then you may enjoy Star Boot Sale – a Channel 4 show where different celebrities compete to sell the most items at a car boot sale to raise money for charities; as well as season 3 of Canadian car restorers: Rust Valley Restorers.

For younger viewers this week we have Alien TV which follows alien reporters Ixbee, Pixbee and Squee as they travel to Earth and try to make sense of humans and their hobbies. There’s also season 2 of Netflix Original series Glitch Techs which follows two teens as they hunt down video game monsters that have escaped into the real world.

There are also a handful of documentaries added this week including two Piers Morgan shows: Confessions of a Serial Killer with Piers Morgan and Psychopath with Piers Morgan – you can probably guess what they’re about by the titles… Other additions include John Was Trying to Contact Aliens about a man who has spent years sending radio waves into space in the hope of contacting aliens and the limited series High Score which charts the history of classic video games.
