The first full week of October is here, and with the countdown to Halloween officially on, Netflix is handing out plenty of treats! This week, the streaming giant will be stocking a total of 19 new titles, which began arriving on Monday and will continue to roll out through Friday, Oct. 8. The newest additions to the library also include 16 new Netflix original titles.
After kicking off the week with the fourth season premiere of On My Block, Netflix is set to continue this week's additions on Tuesday with the debut of the original film Escape the Undertaker before launching into the bulk of its new content later in the week. Some of those new titles include Baking Impossible, the streamer's newest baking competition series with a twist, and Season 2 of Sexy Beasts, Netflix's hit dating show that proved to be meme-worthy upon its debut over the summer. Given that it's now October, Netflix also isn't shying away from dropping new titles from its Netflix and Chills lineup, with subscribers being treated to both There's Someone Inside Your House and A Tale Dark & Grimme.
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.
