It’s Friday and you know what that means: It’s time to figure out what you’ll be watching this week. Welcome back to New on Netflix! The streaming giant’s horror department has always been a mixed bag. However, I’d say they’ve really stepped up their game in the last couple of years with the release of amazing, essential watches. We’ve been treated to must see original programming like The Haunting of Hill House, Velvet Buzzsaw, Hush, and some of the classics we all know and love
This week we have some thrillers, a comedy and two new seasons of two very bingeable shows!
