What’s New on Netflix This Week: May 23rd, 2021
A remarkably quiet week in terms of new releases on Netflix in the United States with most of the attention rightfully being placed on Army of the Dead. Here’s a look at all 25 new releases that came to Netflix this week and what’s new on Netflix this weekend.
As this is a weekly look back at the week that was, you may also be interested in the week that will be. We’ve just published our guide to what’s coming up on Netflix over the next 7 days so go and check that out.
Let’s first recap this weekend’s new releases:
Master of None (Season 3)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Cast: Aziz Ansari, Eric Wareheim, Lena Waithe
Writer: Aziz Ansari, Alan Yang
Runtime: 30 min
Awards: Won 1 Golden Globe. Another 15 wins & 64 nominations.
Aziz Ansari always said he’ll bring back Master of None when the time is right and that seems to be the case with season 3 which is notably very different from the first two seasons.
The 5 episodes released today were shot entirely on film and largely puts the attention away from Dev onto Denise and Alicia.
Sam Smith: Love Goes – Live at Abbey Road Studios (2020)
Genre: Music, Concert
Cast: Sam Smith
Runtime: 61 mins
We’ve long wanted Netflix to be the home of music concerts and while they do occasionally come, they’re relatively rare compared to the likes of stand-up specials for instance.
Anyway, yesterday Netflix added a concert from the British artist Sam Smith. It’s not a huge performance given that it was filmed during lockdown but that works to its benefit with a small intimate performance from the singer.
