Welcome to another rundown of what’s new on Netflix as we head into the weekend. If you’re looking for the full list of every new movie, TV series, and game that has dropped over the past seven days, you’ve come to the right place. Here’s what’s new on Netflix!

If you’re looking for something to watch over Mother’s Day, Netflix has lined up a new romantic comedy with Brooke Shields and Miranda Cosgrove headlining. We won’t be included in our highlights below because of the lukewarm review we put out yesterday, where we concluded, “Mother of the Bride is a passable streaming rom-com that will pair well with a glass of wine – or mai tai – on a Friday evening for fans of the genre.”

Want to see what Netflix has in store for you for the rest of May 2024? We’re constantly updating our list of new arrivals for May here and tracking all the currently known June arrivals here.

What to Watch on Netflix This Weekend

Montford: The Chickasaw Rancher (2021)

Rating: TV-14
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Drama, History
Director: Nathan Frankowski
Cast: Martin Sensmeier, Dermot Mulroney, Tommy Flanagan
Writer: Lucy Tennessee Cole

A surprise re-addition to Netflix today comes in the form of this overlooked Western biopic based on the life of renowned Chickasaw cattleman Montford T. Johnson.

The independent movie was only released a few years ago, and with the rise of Westerns again, thanks in part to Yellowstone, this makes a perfect substitute.

Bodkin (Season 1)

Number of episodes: 7
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Siobhán Cullen, Will Forte, Robyn Cara, Chris Walley, David Wilmot
Runtime: 47 mins

The latest title from Netflix’s expansive output deal with Higher Ground Productions is Bodkin, a new series created by Jez Scharf.

The premise of the Ireland-set crime mystery is that you’ll follow a group of podcasters investigating a mystery in a remote Irish town.

Reviews are a bit mixed on this one, with the most positive praise focusing on solid performances from the leads and a beautiful backdrop, even if some find the plot a little wishy-washy. Reviews are perhaps summarized best by Alan Sepinwall for RollingStone, who says, “The series is a tricky balance of tones and ideas that works at some times, but not at others. And its interest in the mystery… comes and goes. But many of the performers do interesting and appealing work.”

War Dogs (2016)

Rating: R
Language: English
Genre: Biography, Comedy, Crime
Director: Todd Phillips
Cast: Jonah Hill, Miles Teller, Steve Lantz
Writer: Stephen Chin, Todd Phillips, Jason Smilovic
Runtime: 114 min / 1h 54m

It’s not the first time War Dogs has been on Netflix, but despite some of the mixed reviews, I will gladly plan a rewatch of this intense movie starring Jonah Hill and Miles Teller.

Based on a true story, we see two young men completely out of their league managing to secure very profitable military contracts.

Blood of Zeus (Season 2)

Number of episodes: 8
Rating: TV-MA
Language: English
Genre: Animation, Action, Adventure
Cast: Derek Phillips, Jason O’Mara, Claudia Christian, Mamie Gummer, Jessica Henwick, Elias Toufexis

Finally, we move on to Blood of Zeus, which returns to Netflix after a three-and-a-half-year wait! Is the wait worth it? Absolutely.

Here’s what you can expect going into the second season:

“Following Zeus’ demise, a power vacuum emerges amongst the gods, leaving Heron, Zeus’ demigod son, struggling to find his place. He is racked with loss and hears a mysterious refrain in his dreams, prodding him to save his brother, Seraphim, who is suffering the terrors of the Underworld. Unbeknownst to Heron, Hades is trying to enlist Seraphim to help him secure Zeus’ vacant throne and save his family from their long standing suffering.”
