A new weekend at Netflix means new titles for the streamer’s subscribers, and this week, nine new additions are headed to the streaming library. Although this week's additions are on the lighter aside, they join more than a dozen titles that were added throughout the week, as well as several dozen that have been added throughout the first half of October.
Among this weekend's additions are six Netflix original series, films, and specials, including Dream Home Makeover, which may even inspire viewers to get started on their own home projects. The streamer will also be dropping its docuseries The Chicago 7. For those hoping to find offerings that are a bit spookier to help them prepare for Halloween, Netflix has unveiled a complete Halloween streaming guide of titles, aptly dubbed "Netflix & Chills." That list can be viewed by clicking here.
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.
