New To Netflix This Week: Chadwick Boseman's Final Movie

There are a few movies, TV shows, and originals of note this week including a new season of the streaming service music doc.


We're halfway through December, and the holidays are right around the corner. However, most people already have their holiday movies planned and want to know what else is coming to Netflix this week. Well, it's an interesting lineup where you can watch Chadwick Boseman's final film, a music documentary featuring Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, and a few reality TV shows where people yell at each other for no reason at all.

On Friday, Boseman's final performance comes to Netflix. In Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, Boseman plays Levee, a trumpeter looking to make a name for himself in the music industry. Based on the play by August Wilson, the story also follows a recording session in Chicago during the 1920s where the Mother of Blues, Ma Rainey, is late to her own session as she battles with her music manager. Check out the trailer below.

Arriving on Tuesday is another round of Song Exploder. Based on the podcast of the same name, the series explores musicians and how they wrote some of their most influential songs. Season 1 featured Alicia Keys, Lin-Manuel Miranda, R.E.M., and Ty Dolla $ign. Season 2 features Dia Lipa discussing "Love Again," The Killers exploring "When You Were Young," Natalia Lafourcade explaining "Hasta La Raíz," and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails breaking down one of the breakouts from The Downward Spiral, "Hurt," which was also famously covered by Johnny Cash.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Netflix this week, which obviously includes some Christmas movies as well. For more info on Netflix, check out what's coming for the month of December.
