What’s New on Netflix This Week (August 16th – 22nd, 2021)

It’s finally time to have a look at what’s new on Netflix this week as we get to the bottom of another one.

As always, Netflix is going to give its subscribers plenty of new content with another week. Even though this week’s new releases do not include smash-hits, we have some very promising series, movies, and documentaries. For the start, we’re going to see serial killer Dennis Nilsen narrate his own life with never-before-heard voice tapes. After that, there’s a thriller movie starring the big man Jason Momoa. Personally, I’m waiting for The Chair, which is a comedy series starring Sandra Oh as the first-ever woman chair of a failing English department. So yeah, Netflix Originals of this week seem promising as always. Without further ado, check out the full list of what’s new on Netflix this week below.
