Movies & Shows To Look Forward To On Netflix
As the release of the fourth season of Stranger Things came out on Friday which has generated a popular response and an impressive runtime, we thought to ourselves what else is there to look forward to on Netflix in the coming months?

The Umbrella Academy returns for its third season which follows a dysfunctional family who spent their childhood harnessing their powers and fighting crime. Season 2 ended with the family returning back to the present day after preventing the 1963 doomsday.

An Army captain is forced to utilise all her years of tactical training and military experience when a simultaneous coordinated attack threatens the remote missile interceptor station which she is in command of. This new action thriller by Netflix sets out to be one hell of a adventure featuring edge on the seat combat sequences.
Cobra Kai (Season 5)
Despite my feelings that I’ve had with this Karate Kid spin-off series in the past, it looks like season 5 is gearing up to be absolutely epic. The season 4 finale left us with Hawk and Tory winning the men’s and woman’s All Valley Karate Tournament championships respectively. However, the cliff hanger ending showed Tory and Sensei Kreese finally learning the true nature of Terry Silver and so for the season 5 it seems as if we could be seeing something huge brewing between Cobrai Kai and Miyagi-Do.
