New on Netflix: Bill Burr's 'F is for Family' and Spike Lee's 'Da 5 Bloods'  

Two much-loved shows return for their fourth seasons, along with Spike Lee’s politically-charged first Netflix film in the wake of the protests across the USA

This week on Netflix sees the return of two favourites in their fourth seasons: American teen drama 13 Reasons Why and Bill Burr’s dark satire, the animated sitcom F is for Family.

But the biggest highlight is undoubtedly Spike Lee’s Da 5 Bloods, that releases in the wake of the #BlackLivesMatter protests happening across the U.S.A today. Part political commentary, part buddy comedy, Lee’s first Netflix film follows a grouping of aging African American vets who return to Vietnam, in order to retrieve the body of their squad leader, as well as the treasure they had secretly buried in the jungle during the War.

 

The filmmaker’s television series She’s Gotta Have it, inspired by his movie of the same name, is also streaming on the platform.

For Indian viewers, Axone, that follows a day in the life of a group of Northeasterners in Delhi through a wedding, finally comes to streaming.

Other notable arrivals include zombie horror Reality Z, the second season of Dating Around, and mystery-thriller The Woods, which is adapted from the popular Harlan Coben novel.

Here is the full list of titles coming to the platform this week:
