Netflix new arrivals this week: ‘The Umbrella Academy’ Season 2, ‘Get Even’ and more

Teen dramas, the return of an exciting superhero series, and two fascinating documentaries provide a lot to look forward to this week

Plenty of highlights for those who love teen dramas/ comedies this week as apart from Joey King’s The Kissing Booth 2, there is also the debut of British show Get Even, that follows four private school classmates who team up and work together to expose a string of injustices in their school and plan a secret act of skillful revenge. There is also chick flick Seriously Single, in which a commitment-craving social media expert can’t stop stalking her ex, while her free-living bestie urges her to embrace singlehood.

Fans of Inside The World’s Toughest Prisons will look forward to season 4 of the documentary, whereas new docu-drama The Speed Cubers puts the spotlight on two competitors (and friends) in the world of competitive speedcubing, solving Rubik’s cubes and other puzzles in the matter of seconds. Will their rivalry decimate their friendship?

However, the week’s biggest arrival is season 2 of superhero series The Umbrella Academy, with the finale last time around setting up a cliffhanger as the siblings were all set to jump through time to avoid an apocalypse. Will they succeed? Lots of questions persist.

Here is the full list of titles releasing this week:
