What’s new on Netflix this weekend? Here’s the full list of new movies and shows on Netflix this weekend, including What/If and She’s Gotta Have It season 2.

This weekend, Netflix is releasing an uncharacteristically short list of new titles. Rather than sprinkling the new stuff throughout the course of the weekend, only Friday, May 24 will be seeing any premieres. Nevertheless, there’s no need to fear: we’re getting some seriously awesome titles packed into one exciting day.

Netflix also just shared the list of what’s new on Netflix in June 2019.

If you’re craving a thrilling new series, you’ll have to check out What/If. This new show stars Renée Zellweger as one part of what appears to be a very indecent proposal. It’s hard to nail down exactly what this creepy new series is about.

Check out the tense first trailer for yourself below.

Also new in television this week is She’s Gotta Have It season 2. The first season of this Spike Lee series got stellar reviews, so we have high hopes for this new installment. DeWanda Wise reprises her role of Nola Darling in the second season.

If you’re more in the mood to find a good movie for the weekend, be sure to check out The Perfection. This new film stars Allison Williams, who just starred in A Series of Unfortunate Events and Logan Browning of Dead White People. The trailer looks seriously creepy and more than a little grotesque, so watch with caution.

In more lighthearted fare, you can also catch the new flick Rim of the World when it premieres this Friday. I’m getting some Stranger Things vibes from this story about a group of preteen campers who are tasked with stopping an alien invasion. It looks really cute and really funny. Maybe it will turn out to be a decent watch for the whole fam to enjoy?

Check out the trailer for yourself below.
