These Titles Are Hitting Netflix In The Coming Week
Netflix is a revolving door of movie and television content, particularly on the streaming side of things. Though titles often disappear from availability, new ones are also frequently added. Sometimes these come in the form of Netflix original shows or even exclusive access to certain programming, but sometimes it’s just older titles that many find to be still worth watching.
Content is added to Netflix streaming each week, and it can be difficult to keep up with what’s available all the time. With that, here’s a look at some new additions.
Note: This is for the U.S.
This time, Netflix is expanding on its Goosebumps offerings and launching its latest exclusive stand-up special from Russell Peters, in addition to its companion docu-series.
