6 new Netflix releases start streaming today
Most of Netflix’s growth right now comes from outside of its home market, the United States. That goes some way to explaining the breadth and depth of the streamer’s huge library of international TV series and movies — a handful of new examples of which, in fact, hit Netflix today.
They include new movies, a true crime documentary, and more. And, we should add before we dive into today’s list, foreign language titles like these are quite often above all worth checking out on Netflix… since the biggest English-language titles, despite a ton of hours of streaming, have been giving us one dud after another for weeks now.
Raised from heartache
We will start with Raised from heartache, a revamp of a 90s Australian young adult series that ran for seven seasons. It has also been broadcast in over 70 countries around the world, including the UK, USA, Germany, Argentina, Mexico, India, and Indonesia, among others.
Netflix Plot: “A discovery makes Amerie an instant outcast at Hartley High, and sparks a mysterious and very public rift with her ride-or-die harper Harper. Along with her new friends – strangers Quinni and Darren – Amerie must mend her reputation, while navigating love, sex and heartbreak.
