This week has been all about the movies on Netflix in the United States but there are still a good few new TV highlights to cover. Here’s the best new TV series added to Netflix over the course of the last 7 days.

One of the biggest breakout comedies of the last two years has been Schitt’s Creek which has been getting multiple syndication deals over the past year as its popularity skyrockets.

The series comes from Canadian broadcaster CBC which saw the series blossom somewhat in part thanks to Netflix picking it up a couple of years ago.

Rhythm + Flow (Season 1)

Added to Netflix: October 10th
Genre:
Reality-TV/Competition

Netflix has made significant strides over the past year to boost its reality TV lineup but its competition productions have been lacking. It acquired Eurovision last week but now we see one of the first true Netflix Original competition series.

The three judges set out to find the next rap superstar.

New episodes will be airing weekly on Netflix from Wednesdays but the first three episodes dropped on October 10th.


Haunted (Season 2).

Speaking of reality series, one that didn’t do too well when it first released last Halloween was Haunted. The second season, however, seems to have made a big step forward in terms of its production.

The premise of the show is that we follow individuals who gave testimony of their own supernatural experiences which are then recreated.

We’re really seeing Netflix’s kids output boosted recently and going into November 2019 with Disney+ looking to snap at the heels of Netflix.

We follow a novice entering the Beyblade tournament looking to earn the title of world champion.
