All The Movies And TV Shows Releasing This Weekend



Netflix has a packed weekend of releases for subscribers of the service, and we’ve gathered them all here for you in one handy dandy place. Whether you’re a fan of romantic comedies, anime, game shows, dramas, superhero shows, documentaries, or anything in between, Netflix has something for you to binge over the weekend, so make sure to carve out some time to check out the new additions. In total there are 17 new releases to peruse, and 4 of those are Netflix original films, though most of the television shows hitting the service are also completely original.

One of the biggest releases of the bunch is the final season of Jessica Jones, which will bring the Marvel Television Netflix partnership to an official close. The partnership produced three seasons of Daredevil, three of Jessica Jones, two of Luke Cage, two of Iron Fist, and two of The Punisher, as well as the team-up season The Defenders.

Unfortunately, Marvel and the streaming giant couldn’t come to terms on an approach to shows going forward, so Netflix ended up canceling Iron Fist, then Cage, and then Daredevil in short fashion, followed by the announcements of Jones and Punisher cancellations.

At least you can enjoy Jessica Jones‘ final season, and the other shows will remain on the service to binge to your heart’s content. As for what happens to these characters going forward, it appears some element of the deal says that Marvel can’t even develop new shows for at least two years, so it might be a while before we seem them hit the screen again.

With that said, there’s plenty of other things to enjoy on Netflix this weekend, so hit the next slide to check out all of your options!
