Netflix’s large, beginning of the month drop happened last week. That doesn’t mean the streaming service isn’t dropping a plethora of quality content this week, though.

Subscribers are about to get a smorgasbord of original content from the streaming service. There’s the adaptation of best-selling author Sarah Dessen’s Along for the Ride as well as the return of Marmaduke—yes, the classic cartoon Great Dane. Throw in a new season of the service’s hit reality series The Circle, and you’ve got something for everyone to stream.
