Summer may be winding down (sorry, it’s true), but the amount of new content on streaming services isn’t. Check out Mo, a smart, laugh-out-loud series from stand-up comic Mohammed Amer, or Me Time, a new buddy comedy starring Kevin Hart and Mark Wahlberg. For some high-octane thrills, try Samaritan, a gritty superhero/vigilante flick starring Sylvester Stallone, or tune in to the final season of Jason Momoa’s Ontario-filmed dystopian series See. Here’s our roundup of the best new titles streaming on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, Crave and Apple TV Plus this week.
