Netflix is kicking off a new week of 2021 with a fresh slate of content that promises to give subscribers plenty to add to their list for a weekend binge. This week, the streaming giant's already expansive content catalog will expand with the addition of 16 new titles, joining dozens of others made at the very start of the new year.
Among the new additions set to be added beginning on Monday are seven Netflix original series, films, and specials. In recent years, the streamer has focused on original programming as it pushes to expand its slate of original content offerings. This week’s additions to that push include two docuseries, one giving an in-depth look at the crack epidemic and another that promises to have true crime fanatics immediately pressing play. The streamer is also stocking a new series of one fan-favorite animated series as well as the newest addition to Netflix’s reality TV lineup.
Keep scrolling to see everything set to be added to the streaming library this week, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that are set to leave before the end of the month!

'Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer'
On Tuesday, Jan. 13, Netflix is stocking its newest true crime that sets out to tell the spellbinding true story of how one of the most notorious serial killers in American history was hunted down and brought to justice. Night Stalker: The Hunt for a Serial Killer uses first-person interviews, archival footage, and original photography to paint a portrait of how it felt to live in fear during the sweltering summer of 1985 in Los Angeles when a record-breaking heatwave hit the city along with a series of murders and sexual assaults that at first seemed disconnected. As the crimes continued, spreading terror across the city, a young detective named Gil Carrillo from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and investigator Frank Salerno worked to solve the crime.prevnext
