Hello there FTS readers and welcome back to the monthly Netflix Preview portion of the site, where each month I will compile a list and introduce you to what we have to look forward to in the way of new additions each month. Unfortunately this also means we will be taking a look at what will be removed from Netflix each month, allowing all of you to plan accordingly for some last minute binge watching.

Coming up this month we have some new releases in the form of television series. First up we have the new NETFLIX Original Series Chelsea for all you Chelsea Handler fans out there. Also from the creators of Arrested Development comes the new series Lady Dynamite which may also be worth checking out. For you horror fans out there be sure to check out the first original programming from Chiller, Slasher.

Also this month we have some exciting new film releases being added to your Netflix stream. First we have the movie that everyone and their mother has been praying for all these years, Kindergarten Cop 2. Also if you need a little Reynolds fix and enjoy fantasizing about him serenading you in a fat suit while you wait two more weeks for the release of Deadpool, why not revisit the ol’ comedy classic Just Friends. If you’re not feeling up to then then maybe a flashback to the glorious 80’s with Sixteen Candles is more up your alley. Alas, if like me you enjoy the things that go bump in the night then make sure to catch We Are Still Here, by far one of my favorite horror films of recent years. Unless you don’t have the balls, then just stick with the more child friendly Goosebumps.
