In this post, we'll take a look at some of the best new movies and series available on Netflix and Amazon. New shows are added to the streaming service on a regular basis – just too many to watch all of them.

Netflix releases original content at such a rapid pace that it's difficult to keep track of which dramas, comedies, and reality series are worth watching. That doesn't even take into account the TV shows Netflix acquires from broadcast and cable networks.

Let's dive in.

What to watch on Netflix or Amazon

Ozark

Part 1 of Ozark's final season is now available on Netflix, and what a spectacular finale it is shaping out to be. Ozark was once thought of as Breaking Bad's second cousin, but it shouldn't be disregarded as such; this story of a financial planner who gets hooked up with the mob is a masterpiece in its own right.

Witcher

It’s been two whole years since The Witcher first aired on Netflix and this series carries on just where the last one ended, with Geralt of Rivia (Henry Cavill) wounded on a battlefield as he tries to get Princess Cirilla (Freya Allan) to safer climes. This one is streaming weekly which is refreshing - in total there will be eight episodes, so it will take you all the way into 2022.

The Wheel Of Time

The Wheel of Time feels like Amazon testing the fantasy waters before it unleashes the Lord of the Rings show on to us all but for all its faults, there is a lot to like with this epic saga. Rosamund Pike plays Moraine, a noble who has tasked herself with finding The Dragon Reborn, someone who is the key between light and dark. This was streaming weekly but now all episodes are available.

Wrath of Man

Guy Ritchie teams up with Jason Stathom once again (it’s taken them 16 years to get back together) for this lean thriller about a mysterious armored car driver who is out for revenge. After the pomposity of The Gentlemen, this is a refreshing no-frills thriller from Ritchie that does have some issues but is as original a film that we are going to get from the jobbing director.

Money Heist

The last chapter of La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) is now available on Netflix, and it's a blast. While it will be sad to see this gang of money thieves depart, the show's quality has remained steady, even if Part 5 is radically different from Part 1, which premiered in 2017. Money Heist fans will be happy to learn that a Korean version is in the works, which means you'll soon be able to get your fix all over again.

Vikings

On the face of it, Vikings seems a little one dimensional: a whole show based on the pillaging, conquering and brutal world of Viking Ragnar Lothbrok. But this is definitely not Game of Thrones on a budget. The character development over the first three seasons is beautifully handled, and Vikings tells what is a simple story really well, even all the way to season 6.

Hanna

What started off as a spin-off of the successful child assassin movie has mutated into something far better. This is a great show that reveals just what you can do when you allow a premise and characters time to breath. Esme Creed-Miles (daughter of Samantha Morton) is the titular teenage assassin. The show has three seasons now and it's just starting to hit its stride
