Even with Netflix’s recommendation algorithm serving you new movies, new TV shows, and original programming tailored to your viewing habits, the streaming service’s firehose of content makes what’s coming and going difficult to parse.

The new seasons of Sweet Tooth and Firefly Lane premiere this month, along with drama comedy Beef and a new Power Rangers movie. There is a rom-com about a woman traveling to Vietnam, and a documentary about a couple traveling to Costa Rica and getting trapped there on their third date ever. Phew! There is also a new John Mulaney comedy special. Finally, the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies, The Lorax, Shark Tale, and a handful of other eclectic titles hit Netflix.
