This weekend, the Netflix library is getting a little bigger. Beginning on Friday and continuing through Sunday, the streaming giant will be stocking a total of six new titles to its library. All of the latest additions, which thankfully don't come with any losses, are Netflix original series, films, and specials, keeping in line with the streamer's efforts to make a push for original content amid the streaming wars.
While this weekend's additions are light, especially compared to the dozens of titles that the streamer added at the very beginning of the month, they include some heavy hitters. Perhaps the most anticipated in this weekend's lineup is the second installment of the streamers horror anthology series Haunting, which first kicked off in October of 2018 with The Haunting of Hill House. This weekend will also see the debut of the docuseries Deaf U, which has already received praise from critics. This weekend will even see something of interest for the youngest viewers.
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.
