Welcome to New on Netflix, a feature here at Wicked Horror in which we provide the latest updates on what’s coming to the streaming service for the week. In recent times, Netflix’s shift in content has been interesting. While many fan-favorite movies and TV shows have been Netflix staples for the better part of a decade, they’ve been taken off the service with more frequency. Some of them return, some of them don’t, and while these are all simply the result of licensing deals that were already in place before these properties even hit the service, they do shed some light on the content provider’s new focus.
Netflix is continuing to shift gears away from movies and TV shows owned by other studios or companies and is producing their own content with staggering frequency. As we continue to provide updates on what’s been added to the service, it will always be interesting to note the balance between original and licensed content being added to the Netflix library.
With that in mind, here’s the latest spooky content added for the week of November 23rd, 2018.
Mystery Science Theater 3000 Season 12: The Gauntlet
This Thanksgiving week has been great for fans of horror hosting and commentaries. The same day that Shudder brought back Joe Bob Briggs for another marathon, Mystery Science Theater 3000 continued their Thanksgiving marathon tradition in the biggest way yet, by releasing the second season of the Netflix revival series. With movies ranging from the notorious Mac and Me to the Asylum mockbuster Atlantic Rim, there’s so much to be excited for in the new season, as there’s no doubt that many people missed out on binging it when it dropped yesterday.
