The Best New TV Series Coming to Netflix This Week

Netflix's Griselda

If you’re looking for a new series to binge, Netflix is dropping a slew of shows this week that run the gamut, from the just-for-kids cartoon Not Quite Narwhal to the based-on-real-life drug drama Griselda, and everything in-between.

Queer Eye, Season 8

There are six new episodes of Queer Eye available now. If you’ve seen the show, you’re probably already watching, but if you haven’t, now’s the time to dive in. The premise of a gaggle of LGBTQ+ experts fixing up regular people’s looks and lives would get old fast if the cast wasn’t so charming and the presentation so unfailingly empathetic and tolerant. It’s tear-jerking, transformation TV that should not be missed. 


Sofía Vergara turns in a ruthless performance as real-life Columbian kingpin (queenpin?) Griselda Blanco in Griselda. Blanco was on par with Pablo Escobar in the 1980s; she controlled most of Miami’s cocaine trade, and her rise to power and subsequent fall from grace is detailed over six episodes in this intense new drama. 

Masters of the Universe: Revolution

The world needs He-Man, and he’s right there waiting for you to stream his muscular, heroic form into your home right now. Sci-fi icons Mark Hamill and William Shatner lend their voices to this animated series that updates the source material just enough to stay current but keeps the essential vibe of the original series intact. 

Six Nations: Full Contact 

The 2023 NFL season is nearing its end, making it the perfect time to dive into the sport’s father: rugby. Docu-series Six Nations: Full Contact takes us into the Six Nations tournament, the Super Bowl of rugby, and introduces us to the hard-ass kings of this smash mouth sport.  

Not Quite Narwhal

Netflix adds Dreamworks’ undersea kiddie cartoon Not Quite Narwhal to its collection of children’s programs this week. Based on a series of kids books, Not Quite Narwhal’s hero Kelp straddles two worlds: he’s part Narwhal and part Unicorn. Despite the show’s cutesy-poo look, Narwhal has substance. Kelp and his pals’ gentle adventures explore acceptance and identity in a way everyone could learn from, even if the show is aimed at pre-schoolers.

Last week’s picks

Love on the Spectrum U.S., Season 2

A dating reality show focusing on people with autism could have been an exploitive nightmare (and it has its share of critics) but I think Love on the Spectrum is handled with enough sensitivity and care that it’s ultimately a show about normalizing neurodiversity and not infantilizing people with autism. Putting aside complex representational questions, Love on t
