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 are the latest Netflix additions for the week of June 28th, 2019.
Scare Tactics: Season 4 & 5
If you want a blast from the past of early 2000s reality TV, then you should be delighted to hear that two more seasons of Scare Tactics have hit Netflix. The show was, essentially, SyFy’s answer to Fear Factor. It involved many of the same scenarios, but often more elaborate antics with a distinctly horror twist. The show, originally hosted by Shannen Doherty, but hosted in these seasons by Tracy Morgan, has made its way to Netflix with relatively little fan fare. But if you remember it from that era, it could be worth a look.
