If you’re looking for your next Netflix fix studded with your favorite black stars, look no further because Been Worthy has the list for you. From an assortment of rom-coms and horror comedies to thrillers, bromance, romance, and dramas, this is your guide to what’s new and black on Netflix.
We did it so you don’t have to or because you just have to.
End of the Road
Queen Latifah stars as a single mom of two alongside Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges, in the new road trip thriller “End of the Road.” The film is a Netflix original, so you can grab the edge of your seat and watch this film exclusively on Netflix today.
Number one for the not-so-right reasons, “Me Time,” starring Kevin Hart, Mark Wahlberg, and Regina Hall, portrays a family man taking on a wild weekend with an old friend while his wife and kids are away for the weekend. Although the film is holding a spot at the top of Netflix charts, it’s doing numbers as Hart and Wahlberg’s worst-ranked films. Do with that information what you will.
The Man from Toronto
Another Kevin Hart-led film, The Man from Toronto is an action movie with Hart’s signature, punchy quips where he’s mistaken for an assassin he later has to team up with.
Love in the Villa
If you need a little love in your hearts, follow Kat Graham’s character to Verona, Italy in “Love in the Villa,” where her vacation home comes with a little more than just pillow mints and complimentary shampoo–she also gets a boo.
Jamie Foxx. Snoop Dogg. Megan Good. Vampires. Hollywood gets stranger by the day. So does San Fernando Valley as shown in “Day Shift,” where Foxx works as a pool cleaner by day and a vampire hunter by night.
If you take pleasure in basking in nostalgia or need to catch these black titles for the first time, you can watch “If Beale Street Could Talk,” “Collateral,” “John Q,” “Next Friday,” “Save the Last Dance” and “Above the Rim;” all recently added to Netflix’s growing list of titles that are old to us, but new to Netflix.
Looking ahead, cartoon fans can look forward to some animated content for adults and kids.
Season four of the animated series, “Karma’s World,” is returning to Netflix at the end of this month. Created by rapper Ludacris based on his daughter, Karma Bridges, the show will continue to follow the musically gifted Karma as she follows her rap dreams.
Ada Twist, Scientist
Another family-friendly animated series, “Ada Twist, Scientist” is about a little black girl with big questions discovered by her and her friends through science. Tune into season two of the Obama-produced series on September 12th.
Kid Cudi’s “Entergalactic” hits the streaming platform on September 30th. The adult animated series, featuring music from Cudi’s titular album, will portray a young artist navigating love, art, and success in New York.
A Jazzman’s Blues
Tyler Perry takes us deep into history and the deep south in “A Jazzman’s Blues,” telling the story of a forbidden couple, family drama, and a murder investigation. Viewers can watch Perry’s first-written screenplay finally come to life on screen on September 23rd.
