Welcome to New on Netflix, a feature here at Wicked Horror in which we provide the latest updates on what’s coming to the streaming service for the week. In recent times, Netflix’s shift in content has been interesting. While many fan-favorite movies and TV shows have been Netflix staples for the better part of a decade, they’ve been taken off the service with more frequency. Some of them return, some of them don’t, and while these are all simply the result of licensing deals that were already in place before these properties even hit the service, they do shed some light on the content provider’s new focus.
Netflix is continuing to shift gears away from movies and TV shows owned by other studios or companies and is producing their own content with staggering frequency. As we continue to provide updates on what’s been added to the service, it will always be interesting to note the balance between original and licensed content being added to the Netflix library.
With that in mind, here’s the latest spooky content added for the week of December 14th, 2018.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: A Midwinter Tale
Fans of Netflix’s hit Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will be happy to learn that they can watch the brand-new holiday special starting today. The new series, based on the comic of the same name, hit the service back in October to a very favorable response. Normally, these shows are binged in a weekend and people have to wait a full year for the next fix, but thankfully, Sabrina appears to be taking a very different approach. This new holiday special will at least go a long way toward holding fans over until the second season hits. Interestingly, even without the special, fans wouldn’t have long to wait as season two will hit Netflix on April 5th.
