Netflix is constantly updating its library, churning out new movies and TV shows every week in order to keep its millions of subscribers happy. And for the week of June 18, 2018, the site has really outdone itself by seemingly offering something for every type of movie and TV fan. The new shows and movies on Netflix this week, of which there are 10, manage to cover a wide swath of genres that promise to keep fans stimulated well into next week and beyond — including a medical mystery drama that will have you stalking WebMD before it's over.
Netflix is debuting the original film Brain on Fire this week, a drama that focuses on a bizarre medical condition that leaves a young woman fighting for her life — while also losing her mind. Oh, and it just so happens to be based on a true story, so now you have a new illness to worry about contracting.
On a lighter note, '90s kids and Disney fans can look forward to Tarzan, the 1999 Disney animated classic that served as the sublime closer to the studio's renaissance decade in animation. Fans of Netflix's gritty Marvel franchise are in for a treat as well, as Luke Cage returns for its highly anticipated second season.
If you're into stand up comedy but also tired of seeing the same old routines, then Hannah Gadsby's new comedy special Nanette is definitely for you. Ditto for fans of magic and illusion when it comes to Derren Brown's mind-bending special Miracle. Reality TV fans can look forward to a new cooking show, Cooking on High, as well as a new season of the Canadian highway rescue series, Heavy Rescue: 401. There are also three new international offerings for Netflix's most worldly fans, so you won't be left longing for culture when it comes to your streaming choices. You can take a look at all 10 of this week's new Netflix additions in greater detail below.
