As we near the halfway mark of May, the additions to Netflix's streaming library aren't slowing down. In fact, the streaming giant is prepping to add a host of new titles to the library this weekend, expanding its already impressive content catalog by more than a dozen new titles. The streaming options, which will begin dropping on Monday, promise hours of entertainment for subscribers.
In total, Netflix subscribers will be treated to 14 new titles this week. Of those new additions, 13 are Netflix original series, films, specials, and documentaries, keeping in line with the streamer's move to provide more exclusive content for its subscribers. Subscribers will be able to press play on everything from a new documentary answering all of your deep, burring questions about money to a new suspense-filled thriller film. This week's additions also include the fourth and final season of one fan-favorite series as well as the addition of the Amy Adams-starring film The Woman in the Window.
You can watch all of these titles and more by signing up for one of the streamer’s three subscription plans – the basic plan ($8.99 per month), the standard plan ($13.99 per month), and the premium plan ($17.99 per month). For those not quite ready to commit, you can get a taste of what Netflix has to offer by checking out the "Netflix Free Section," which includes a selection of some of the streamer’s best originals for non-subscribers to check out. 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!
Netflix is tackling a taboo topic this week: money. On Tuesday, May 11, the streamer is taking a look at the complicated relationship people have with money and venturing to dish out some major information in the documentary Money, Explained. According to the streamer, the documentary "puts it all out into the open: the ways your credit card might be screwing you; how student loans became a crisis; why most of us won’t be able to save enough for retirement; and how we get tricked into bad gambles and even worse scams."prevnext
