It’s time to look ahead at the week to come and Netflix has a stonking week ahead with so many excellent new and returning movies on the way. Here’s a look at everything coming to Netflix US over the next 7 days between October 12th to October 18th, 2020. 

We just updated our October 2020 list too with quite a few additional titles lined up for the end of the month plus, check out our early preview of what’s coming up in November 2020 too.

This week continues Netflix’s 2020 trend at having a stellar movie lineup but perhaps a disappointing Netflix Original series lineup.

Let’s quickly run you through our highlights of the week:

Half & Half and One on One

Arrives on Netflix: Thursday, October 15th

If you love it when Netflix picks up multiple seasons of shows, then on Thursday Netflix has acquired two comedies from the noughties.

One on One features five seasons and is about a sportscaster who has his life flipped upside down when his teenage daughter moves in with him.

Half & Half features four seasons and is about half-sisters who live in the same apartment complex and the family drama that occurs.

The Trial of the Chicago 7

Arrives on Netflix: Friday, October 16th

An all-star cast comes together for this movie that was originally pegged for a theatrical release. Afer the whirlwind year and the devastation it’s caused at the box office, Netflix swooped in to carry yet another stellar movie that eyes various awards at various ceremonies in 2021.

The movie is about the true story of 7 people who were put onto trial during the uprising at the 1968 Democratic National Convention.
