Netflix's streaming library is getting a little fuller this weekend! Beginning on Friday, the streaming giant is stocking a total of 11 new titles, six of which are Netflix original series, films, and specials. The titles range in a variety of genres and are sure to provide plenty of hours of hooking content to keep subscribers as they tune into things like Fast & Furious Spy Racers: Season 4: Mexico and Why Are You Like This.
The new titles mark the final additions for this week, which proved to be a major one for the streamer, which dropped more than two dozen titles beginning on Monday. This means that subscribers have more content than ever to binge. Some titles that dropped earlier in the week include the first four episodes of The Circle Season 2, with four more episodes set to drop this upcoming Wednesday, as well as well the anthology documentary My Love: Six Stories of True Love. While this week was a big haul, Netflix still has plenty of more additions coming throughout the rest of the month. You can see those titles by clicking here.
Netflix offers 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). The streamer also recently debuted a "Netflix Free Section," allowing non-subscribers to watch a selection of the streamer's most beloved originals at no cost.
