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:

The top film addition this week is a little different to normal: Sam Smith: Love Goes – Live at Abbey Road Studios features Grammy-winning artist Sam Smith giving an intimate, soulful performance at the iconic Abbey Road Studios featuring songs from their third album and more. We also have the drama American Woman which follows a rural Pennsylvania mother who, when her teenage daughter goes missing, must confront her own painful past in a harrowing search for answers. Italian biopic Baggio: The Divine Ponytail tells the story of football star Roberto Baggio including his career highs, triumphs over injuries and discovery of Buddhism. In the Thai film Ghost Lab two doctors witness a haunting in their hospital and become dangerously obsessed with obtaining scientific proof that ghosts exist. And, finally for films this week we have Collateral Beauty starring Will Smith. After suffering a tragedy, a man questions the universe by writing to Love, Time and Death but when he receives unexpected answers he begins to piece his life back together.

For TV this week we have the second half of Lucifer season 5 where the Lord of Darkness has returned to hell where he tries to keep his friends and loved ones safe. Season 3 of Master of None takes a different approach where, instead of following lovelorn Dev, we see the story of Denise and Alicia in a modern love story that follows two queer, Black women. Israeli series Black Space sees a school massacre carried out by people in unicorn masks and then follows a rogue detective as he tried to piece together what happened. We also have season 2 of the Norwegian fantasy series Ragnarok, season 3 of anime series JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, and the third and final season of The Kominsky Method.

For those who enjoy watching documentaries we have a new series that looks at the history of American food. High on the Hog: How African American Cuisine Transformed America follows chef and writer Stephen Satterfield as he traces the delicious, moving throughlines from Africa to Texas. And finally for documentaries we have a new Netflix Original Nail Bomber: Manhunt which looks at the events in London, UK in 1999 when three different communities were the targets of a right-wing bombmaker and how he was finally captured.

For children and families this week we have a new anime mini-series Eden which tells the story of a pair of robots who secretly raise a human child when humanity has all but vanished. In the drama Blue Miracle a group of kids join forces with a fisherman in order to win a competition to save their orphanage. In the CGI animated Dog Gone Trouble we see a pampered dog’s life turned upside-down when he gets lost and must learn to survive on the big-city streets. We also have the return of DreamWorks’ Home.
