This Week’s New Releases on Netflix UK (22nd June 2018)

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 the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:

The most popular addition this week has been The Vietnam War by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick. This documentary series covers many aspects of the Vietnam War from both sides and is a whopping 18 hours long. You may have already seen a cut-down version on the BBC, but this is the full length series.

Stir Crazy has made a welcome return to Netflix and sees Gene Wilder starring alongside Richard Pryor as two friends who get mistaken for burglars and imprisoned for 125 years. Derren Brown: Miracle, which previously aired in the UK as “Derren Brown: Miracles for Sale” in 2011, has been added as a Netflix Original ahead of his brand new show which should be coming later in the year.

One of the more popular Star Trek movies of recent years arrived this week with Star Trek Beyond which sees Captain Kirk and his crew marooned on a lost planet. Leatherface, a prequel of sorts to the Texas CHainsaw Massacre movies, has also been a popular addition this week.

There have also been some great additions to the TV roster this week as well with season 2 of Marvel’s Luke Cage being the most obvious but also the return of BBC’s Merlin – all 5 series. The animated series Steven Universe has also been added which has got many of you excited; this slightly odd series follows a human-gem hybrid who has to use his powers to save the universe. We also have Shooter season 3 with new episodes every Friday.

Don’t forget to look at the most popular additions this week and for all the Netflix Originals added today you can read our separate post.
