Here’s the list of all the new movies and shows on Netflix this week, including the sci-fi flick See You Yesterday and the feel good story Good Sam.

Whoa, it’s a good week to be a Netflix subscriber! There are a ton of exciting new titles headed to the streaming service over the next couple of days. Don’t let good stuff get buried in your queue: check out this quick list of all the best new releases that you should definitely check out this week.

If you’re in the market for some feel good viewing, check out Good Sam when it premieres this Thursday, May 16. This new film stars Tiya Sircar (the totally underrated actress from titles like The Good Place and The Internship) as a jaded journalist who finds new hope when an anonymous good Samaritan starts to send aid throughout New York City.

Check out the trailer. I’m kind of getting some Pay It Forward vibes?

You can also color me very interested in See You Yesterday, the new sci-fi flick about time travel in modern Brooklyn. Early reviews for this flick are looking really good, with one reviewer saying it is “smart, often ingenious.” Way to hype us up.

Check out the trailer below!

If you’re looking for a good series, check out the return of The Rain on Friday, May 17. This series flew under the radar a bit when it first appeared but it brings all those compelling, post-apocalyptic vibes we crave from a TV show.

Give it a try and check out the trailer!
