Friday is typically a Netflix day. The streaming giant usually releases its new original content on Fridays, just in time for subscribers to binge-watch them the entire weekend.
On Friday, Netflix dropped part two of its supernatural “Sabrina the Teenage Witch” reboot, “Chilling Adventures of Sabrina”; Brie Larson’s directorial-debut feature, “Unicorn Store,” fresh off her starring role in the blockbuster “Captain Marvel”; and “Our Planet,” Netflix’s own take on hit nature docuseries such as “Planet Earth.”
Below are more details on the four original movies and TV shows Netflix released for this weekend.
“Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 2”
Description:“It’s a wicked world out there, and Sabrina is brewing up trouble. After signing her name in the Book of the Beast, Sabrina struggles to find the balance between her place in the mortal world and her new darker side. New challenges await Sabrina in Part 2, including having to choose between the familiar mortal Harvey Kinkle, and the sexy warlock Nicholas Scratch. She may have signed her name to the Dark Lord, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t willing to raise a little hell. Starring Kiernan Shipka.”
