Editor’s note: We’ll regularly update this list of upcoming Netflix shows and movies as new ones and their release dates are announced.
The Harder They Fall
This explosive upcoming Netflix movie will be all about cowboys, guns, and a whole lot of bloodshed. Starring Idris Elba, Jonathan Majors, Regina King, and others, the western will depict a fight-to-the-death clash between two outlaw groups. Elba leads one group while Majors and his posse form the other.
Stranger Things 4
Netflix’s cult sci-fi show is coming back for a fourth installment. Unfortunately, we don’t know when. We got a cryptic trailer from the streaming service for Stranger Things 4, focussing on the other “gifted” children who lived in the research lab with Eleven (Millie Bobby Brown). Nevertheless, we expect more monsters and mayhem from the new season and we hope to get a release date soon.
Netflix and Riot Games are bringing League of Legends to the television with this upcoming animated series premiering globally this fall. The show is set in the utopian region of Piltover and the oppressed underground of Zaun. The story follows the origins of two iconic League champions and the power that will tear them apart.
Army of Thieves
Remember Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead from a while back? This one is a prequel to that. Before flesh-eating zombies took over the world, a group of Interpol’s most wanted criminals and a small-town bank teller set off on an adventure of a lifetime, attempting multiple heists and opening impossible-to-crack safes across Europe.
One of the biggest upcoming Netflix shows is this live-action sci-fi series is based on the acclaimed Japanese anime series of the same name. It combines crime noir with sci-fi trappings, as a group of bounty hunters go after their targets across the galaxy. Oh, and there is a Corgi dog too. Check out the series when it drops on November 19.
This will be the biggest Netflix original movie to date, in terms of its budget. Dwayne Johnson plays an FBI agent who is going after a skilled art thief, played by Ryan Reynolds. However, the two must later team up to go after another criminal, played by Gal Godot. This heist thriller will have lots of locations around the world, and will also reportedly have lots of surprises and twists in its plot. We will find out when this movie drops on November 12.
Lin-Manuel Miranda makes his feature directorial debut with this upcoming Netflix musical. The movie will introduce us to American composer and playwright Jonathan Larson (Andrew Garfield) in his younger days. The film is an adaptation of his autobiographical musical that details the days leading up to his make-or-break performance amidst immense peer pressure and an artistic community ravaged by the AIDS epidemic.
Cobra Kai Season 4
The fight is coming back to Netflix and this time, the villain from The Karate Kid part III, Terry Silver, will bring the pain. While Griffith reviving his role from the film is enough to get fans of the franchise excited, there’s also a battle brewing for the soul of the valley. Season four of Cobra Kai will see the All Valley tournament return in full swing. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until December 31 for the new installment of the show.
The long awaited live-action adaptation of the DC Comics modern day fantasy series created by Neil Gaiman recently released its first trailer. It shows how a cult group managed to trap Dream, one of the legendary members of the Endless. The trailer showed that this series will be very faithful to the source material. It’s definitely one of the most anticipated upcoming Netflix shows, and we can’t wait to see the rest of it when it debuts in 2022
The Witcher Season 2
It’s been two long years since the first season of this fantasy series debuted. On December 17, we finally get to see the second season as the monster hunter Geralt, played by Henry Cavill, once again fights against all sorts of enemies. We will also finally find out what happened after the end of season 1, where Geralt finally encounters the princess Ciri of Cintra, who he was destined to meet.
