Not that new but I Just watched the 2 series of Netflix's " Mindhunter ", highly recommended. Based on 2 FBI agents who set up a Behavioural Science Unit to interview serial killers with a few to building up future profiling. It's a bit of a slow burner initially but I can honestly say it gets better with every episode so stick with it. 3rd series being worked on which is good news.

Amazon Prime Video (well I guess nobody has Amazon Prime Video, but just in case) The Boys is a fresh and maybe more realistic perspective about super heroes

And of course the most brillant serie for years, I didn’t like the casting or the tempo and it took me a lot of patience to finish the first episode, but The OA is a diamant.
