In the wake of heavy-hitters like the Fear Street trilogy along with new seasons of Virgin River and Never Have I Ever, we were overdue for a slow week on Netflix. Even so, there's still some fun stuff coming, the biggest being the premiere of the Shailene Woodley-starring romantic drama The Last Letter From Your Lover.
There's also the fun-looking new animated series Masters of the Universe: Revelation, which brings classic characters like He-Man and Skeletor in the modern age and boasts a star-studded voice cast that includes Mark Hamill, Lena Headey, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more. Below are all the new releases on Netflix for the week of July 23-29, 2021.
All titles debut on Friday, July 23 unless otherwise noted. Here's what came out on Netflix last week.
The Last Letter From Your Lover
Shailene Woodley stars in this romantic drama that looks like it could've been made in the early 2000s during the height of Nicholas Sparks fever. It centers around a modern-day journalist (Felicity Jones) who discovers a series of 1960s love letters that detail an affair between a socialite (Woodley) and the reporter (Callum Turner) writing a piece about her husband.
Masters of the Universe: Revelation, Season 1
Whether you're a life-long fan of He-Man or you only know him from the classic "What's Going On?" video, you'll probably get some enjoyment out of this animated series, which is a direct sequel to the '80s cartoon, He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, and follows He-Man's (Chris Wood) battle against Skeletor (Mark Hamill) to prevent the end of the universe.

Love Is Blind: After the Altar
If you've spent the past year wondering what happened to the people on Love Is Blind after they agreed to marry each other without ever meeting face to face, this reunion special will catch you up with the cast. Some of them are married, some of them are engaged, and some of them are broken up, which means they're going to bring tons of drama when they're forced to be in the same place once again.
