Netflix is keeping things simple this weekend. As the work week comes to a close, the streaming giant is prepping to add the latest additions to its streaming library, and it turns out things will be relatively light. Beginning on Friday, the streamer will be stocking just seven new titles to its content catalog, though the additions include some heavy hitters like Elite Season 4 and an all-new reality TV series.
Although this weekend’s additions may be on the lighter end of things, they join several others that were made this week. Among those recent additions was the highly-anticipated premiere of Black Summer Season 2. The hit zombie series initially debuted in April 2019, meaning that fans had been waiting more than two years for more episodes. This week also brought with it the Elite companion series, Elite Short Stories, as well as titles including Workin' Moms Season 5, Unwind Your Mind, and Penguin Town, among several others.

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. Keep scrolling to see everything coming to Netflix this weekend, and don't forget to check out all of the titles that will be leaving before the end of the month.
'Elite: Season 4'
Netflix's Spanish-language teen crime series Elite is returning for even more drama on Friday, June 18, more than a year after Season 3 dropped on the streaming platform. The series is set at Las Encinas, a private school where the children of rich Spanish families go, and follows a group of students whose lives are changed when three working-class children have to attend Las Encinas after their own school is destroyed in an earthquake. To make matters more difficult, there is a murder at the school, and it is not clear who committed it. In Season 4, the drama will be amped up when a strict principal and four new students arrive at Las Encinas, "bringing an onslaught of romantic entanglements, intense rumors and a fresh mystery."prevnext
