Netflix this week (July 5-11) plans to add 16 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 11 originals.
The new titles will include Stateless, a Netflix original dramatic series starring Yvonne Strahovski as an airline stewardess escaping a cult. Based on a true story, Entertainment Weekly gives the six-part series a grade of A=.
“The ending does offer viewers a modicum of hope, without discounting the significant reforms still required to amend immigration policies around the globe. Stateless is a bit of a tough sit, for sure, but you’ll find it even tougher to turn away,” writes the magazine.
Also this week: The Old Guard (pictured), a Netflix original superhero film starring Charlize Theron and Kiki Layne; and The Epic Tales of Captain Underpants in Space, another installment in the potty-mouthed animated series for pre-teens.
USA Today gives The Old Guard 2.5 stars out of 4, writing that it “feels fresher as a high-minded treatise on mortality and loss than a superhero-y franchise starter.”
