Happy Friday and welcome along to your daily roundup of what’s new on Netflix for the weekend. A few major new Netflix Original releases just touched down on Netflix today, so let’s see what’s new on Netflix and what’s trending for August 12th, 2022.
We’ll be back on Sunday for a full recap of everything added to Netflix US over the previous 7 days, plus we’ll also look at what’s been dominating the top 10s.
If you missed any of this week’s new additions, you can view an expanded guide and read our daily roundups via our new on Netflix hub.
On the removals front, today is your last chance to watch the 2019 documentary Calum von Moger: Unbroken. Next week we’ll see Selfless, starring Ryan Reynolds depart alongside the last remaining season of QB1: Beyond the Lights.
Genre: Comedy, Drama

Writer: Lang Fisher, Mindy Kaling
Runtime: 30 min
One of Netflix’s most beloved shows (particularly by critics) is the coming-of-age comedy series helmed by Mindy Kaling.
This season notably features two new faces in the form of Terry Hu and Deacon Phillippe.
Here’s what you can expect from the third season:
“Devi continues to deal with the everyday pressures of high school and home drama while navigating new romantic relationships.”
The show will be returning for a fourth and final season in 2023.
Genre: Action, Comedy, Fantasy
Director: J.J. Perry
Cast: Jamie Foxx, Dave Franco, Snoop Dogg
Writer: Shay Hatten, Tyler Tice
Runtime: 113 mins
An all-star cast and a thumping soundtrack comes together for Netflix’s big new action movie for August 2022.
Jamie Foxx is the big draw for the movie playing the role of a vampire hunter who spends his days under the guise of a pool cleaner.
We’ll have our own review up a bit later today, but critics seem mixed on the new title so far, with it carrying a 50% on RottenTomatoes. JoBlo Movie Network said the movie is a “fun action-comedy-horror mashup with some excellent action design.”
SlashFilm was less kind, saying, “Not bad for a Netflix action pic, but that’s not saying much at this point.”
Genre: Crime, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Jung Woo, Park Ji-Yeon, Moon Jin-Seung, Woo Jung
Runtime: 45 mins
Continuing the trend of publishing some of the best Korean content this week is the debut of A Model Family, which is getting rave reviews out of the gate.
Here’s what you can expect from the new action series:
“After unwittingly stealing money from a cartel, a cash-strapped professor finds the only way to save his broken family is by working as a drug courier.”
Jung Woo leads the cast, who you may know from Reply 1994, with other stars in the show having featured in titles like My Name, The Royal Gambler, and Hospital Playlist.
Covering Netflix since 2013, Kasey has been tracking the comings and goings of the Netflix library for close to a decade. Resides in the United Kingdom.
