Even with Netflix’s recommendation algorithm steadily serving you new movies, new TV shows and original programming tailored to your binging habits, the streaming service’s firehose of content makes what’s coming and going difficult to parse.
That’s why we break down each month’s additions with a spotlight on what to keep on your radar. Netflix’s own “new releases” category is an info dump. Consider us a picture-in-picture talking head, screaming recommendations at the screen.
The most exciting get of this month is Neon Genesis Evangelion finding an official streaming home for the first time. The final season of Jessica Jones also premieres, before the series joins the slate of canceled Marvel Netflix originals. New films debuting on the platform include Ralph Breaks the Internet and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, while others like The Dark Knight return after a brief hiatus away.
