Halloween may still be a few weeks away, but Netflix is filling subscribers’ bags with plenty of treats. This weekend, the streaming giant will be rolling into the month of October with a bang, adding a total of eight new titles, all originals, to its streaming library.
Among the new additions are a few titles promising to boil up plenty of scares, though the streaming giant keeps it a bit more light-hearted for some festive children’s series. Not everything is all about scares this weekend, though. Along with the fear-inducing additions, the weekend will also see the returns of several fan-favorite series.
