A new week is here and that means a bunch of new movies and shows are coming to Netflix. While this week doesn’t have that many new things coming out, what is coming is a mix of genres. This week brings a very different kind of reality dating show, a new addition to an animated movie series, and a new romantic drama.

First up is season 1 of Sexy Beasts. If you’re on social media, you probably saw something about this when the trailer came out. It’s hard for people not to talk about a dating show where the people are wearing animal heads on their dates. How and why Netflix picked this up is anyone’s guess. The season hits Netflix on Wednesday, July 21.

While the show says it’s trying to do “true” blind dating, that’s not exactly the case because each person can still see the other person’s body shape and in our society, they’d be lying if they said that didn’t factor into whether one person is attracted to another.

Next is another addition to Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters series. Trollhunters: Rise of the Titans also comes to Netflix on Wednesday, July 21. The teens from the Trollhunters series are back to fight the Arcane Order who is trying to take control of the magic that binds them all together.

This movie features of voices of Tatiana Maslany, Emile Hirsch, Nick Offerman, Steven Yeun, Alfred Molina, Kelsey Grammer, Diego Luna, Colin O’Donoghue, and Nick Frost.

More in the mood for some romance? The Last Letter From Your Lover hits Netflix on Friday, July 23. The movie stars Shailene Woodley, Felicity Jones, Joe Alwyn, Callum Turner, and Emma Appleton.

The film follows a journalist who is looking into the forbidden love story behind a collection of love letters from 1965. But she just might find love of her own while searching for someone else’s. It’s based on a novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes.
