This weekend, the Netflix library is getting a little bigger with the addition of 16 new titles. Set to begin being added Friday and continuing through Sunday, nine of the new additions are Netflix original series, films, and specials. The new titles also span a variety of genres, meaning that there will be a little something for everyone.
Given the streamer's promise to spend $17.3 billion this year in content, which is up from $15.3 billion in 2019, according to Variety, the slate of new Netflix originals being added comes as little surprise. In recent years, the streaming platform has made a push for new original content, something that gives it an edge against its competitors as the streaming wars heat up.
