Riverdale season 3 new episodes coming weekly

Last week saw a massive amount of new additions added to the service thanks to it being a new month. This week was far quieter but there are still some fantastic new additions.

This week kicks off Riverdale season 3 where Netflix in Australia will be getting new episodes every Thursday from this week onwards. The series is one of the most popular on Netflix and with Sabrina arriving shortly, it’s a great time to be watching.

The other TV highlights this week include the new horror series, The Haunting of Hill House which has been getting rave reviews and comes from Mike Flanagan, a legendary horror director. Netflix Australia finally got the second season of The Shannara Chronicles from MTV.

There’s a couple of new movies we’d like to bring to your attention. On the Originals front, there’s a new horror and a new thriller added this week. Apostle is about a man attempts to rescue his sister who’s been kidnapped by a religious cult. 22 July is another Original movie added this week and tells the harrowing events of the mass killing in Norway in 2011.

The final movie highlight of the week is the second part of The Hangover trilogy which was added this week. The Hangover Part 2 sees the trio head to Thailand for an exotic holiday.

29 new titles were added in total this week.
