Looking for something new to watch on Netflix? We’re here to help! Here is a list of all the best new shows and movies released on Netflix the week of March 27-April 2.
There’s a bunch of new stuff on Netflix this week, but only read on if you’ve watched Tiger King at least twice, because it’s really the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time. If you are already well versed in the quagmire that is big cat ownership, then Netflix has the third heart-pumping season of crime drama Ozark for the adults, several new shows for the kids, a soccer doc for the sports fans, and silly comedy from Iliza Shlesinger for everyone else.
All titles debut on Friday, March 27 unless otherwise noted. Here’s what came out on Netflix last week.

The Biggest Releases
Ozark, Season 3
Maybe right now isn’t the best time for an anxiety-producing thriller about desperate people who will do anything to survive. Or maybe it’s the perfect time for that very same reason, because at least you’re not Marty Byrde (Jason Bateman). Marty, still totally screwed because he’s in a devil’s pact with the cartel to launder their money, hits Season 3 running with a new plan: run a riverboat casino with Ruth (Julia Garner) managing operations. Season 1 was a competent ape of Breaking Bad with much rougher edges, and Season 2 was mostly just the rough edges. But Season 3 feels like an improvement and somewhere in the middle. Still, it’s TV’s current reigning champ of OH SH– television.
The Iliza Shlesinger Sketch Show, Season 1
Comedian Iliza Shlesinger gets her turn as the host of her own Netflix sketch show, adding her own raw, female POV to the ever-growing mountain of two-minute skits. It’s more general and not as focused as other recent sketch shows, like Astronomy Club, but it’s just here to make you laugh. The first episode has a few gems, like Female Jackass, in which the idiotic physical stunts of Johnny Knoxville are tweaked for women, like when one goes to her ex’s unannounced and endures unnecessary emotional pain, or the ad for the Mom Alert app, in which users are notified of irrelevant danger around the globe. “I was all set to go on my honeymoon in Italy, then Mom Alerts told me about my cousin being robbed in Toronto one time. I dodged that bullet,” Shlesinger says. It’s good low-risk, low-commitment comedy. (Trailer / Wednesday, April 1)
Insecure executive producer Prentice Penny penned and directed this dramedy film about the battle between a father and son in the world of food, and Penny brings his own spice to the genre. Mamoudou Athie stars as the son, who aspires to become a master sommelier, while his father (Courtney B. Vance) wants him to take over the family BBQ stand. It’s got a great voice and is far from any other wine movies you’ve seen in the very best ways. It could be a sleeper hit.
Car Masters: Rust to Riches, Season 2
Some totally bad dudes and one bad gal rescue trashed cars and turn them into colorful full-sized Hot Wheels that cost way too much money. (Trailer)
There’s little info about this movie out of Quebec except that it’s about an accident at a remote survivalist camp that leaves its group fighting for their lives, so I’m guessing it’s a slapstick comedy. (No trailer)
Dragons: Rescue Riders: Hunt for the Golden Dragon
The How to Train Your Dragon dragons are done training and ready to hunt for a golden dragon and a TV show title with fewer colons in it. (Trailer)
Il processo, Season 1
In this Italian series, a teen is murdered and it causes problems for lots of people… especially the teen! (Trailer)
In this Indian film, a guy wants to become an actor and date this attractive woman, but his mom wants him to become a baker and never leave the house! Hopefully he’ll just date the cute coffee table book author instead so everyone can be happy. I mean, I’ve only seen the trailer but I’m pretty sure that’s the entire movie. (Trailer)
True: Wuzzle Wegg Day
Rainbow City is under attack by a Wegg-stealing monster, and frankly, I’m not surprised. I’ve warned you several times that Rainbow City was much too dangerous to go to. (Trailer)
David Batra: Elefanten I Rummet
Swedish comedian David Batra tells jokes in Swedish, making this a great time to see if a stand-up special is still funny if you have to read subtitles. (Trailer / Wednesday, April 1)
How to Fix a Drug Scandal, Season 1
I mean, it’s right there in the title, but I guess I’ll repeat it here. This investigative docuseries examines a 2013 case in which chemists tried to tamper with evidence in a drug scandal. It sounds like they did a bad! (Trailer / Wednesday, April 1)
Sunderland ‘Til I Die, Season 2
Oy, hit the pitch and kick a football, mate, in this documentary that follows Sunderland A.F.C. through its 2018-2019 season. Or just look up how they did on Wikipedia, I don’t care. (Trailer / Wednesday, April 1)
