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 October 12th, 2018.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Finally, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina hits Netflix today. This is honestly one of my most anticipated shows of the year and definitely worth checking out. From the get-go, this reimagining of Sabrina the Teenage Witch as an actual horror series, based on the comic book of the same name, seemed like an excellent idea. The trailers have been strong, the casting, visuals and general vibe of the show all look spot on. This is absolutely going to be worth a watch and Netflix clearly has confidence in it as they are already working on the second season.
