As the build up to Halloween continues, it’s that time again to look ahead, and showcase all of the upcoming releases on Netflix this coming week. We’ve listed all of the new exciting movies and TV series coming to Netflix US in the next 7 days from October 19th to October 25th, 2020.

There’s a greater line up of Originals arriving this week, but a dissapointing lack of Halloween titles.

Here’s the top highlights of the week to come:

Unsolved Mysteries (Volume 2) N

Arrives on Netflix: Monday, October 19th

The revival of the popular crime and mystery docuseries was a smash hit for Netflix in July. The second volume will see plenty of Halloween themed mysteries, including an episode centered around the Lady of the Lake.

Over the Moon (2020) N

Arrives on Netflix: Friday, October 23rd

Arguably Netflix’s biggest animation release of 2020, Over the Moon is a collaboration between the streaming service and Pearl Studio. Subscribers should be excited, directing the animated feature is Glen Keane, an animation veteran. Keane has worked on some of the biggest animated titles from Disney, including but not limited to The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Tangled.

Chinese teenager Fei Fei has been infatuated with the story of a legendary moon goddess since she was a small child. With her genius-level intellect and her adorable pet rabbit, Fei Fei builds a rocket to the moon, beginning her adventure into a strange, beautiful and mythical world.

The Queen’s Gambit (Limited Series) N

Arrives on Netflix: Friday, October 23rd

A potential sleeper hit this fall, Anya-Taylor Joy (Split) will be taking on one of the most intense roles of her blossoming career.

At the tender age of eight, Beth Harmon discovered her talent for chess. Within a few short years she’s competing at a national level, and by 22 she’s set her sights on becoming Chess Grand Champion. As her skills and ambition grows, so does her crippling addiction to drugs, which threatens to destroy everything she’s worked towards.
