Coming To Netflix Next Week: Disney Movies, Documentaries & Exclusives
Written by Chris Crum
  • 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.

    The past week has been great for horror movies and TV shows on Netflix. In the upcoming week, subscribers will be getting a bunch of Disney content and documentaries, as well as a Netflix-exclusive stand-up special from Kathleen Madigan, and finally the Netflix debut of Ricky Gervais’ Derek.

    Here are some of the titles you’ll soon see appearing.
