Netflix has rolled out a new “Worth the Wait” section, a tab that gives members a first look at titles coming to the streaming service in the next 15 to 365 days. The feature is meant to offer a more comprehensive long-view on titles that are eye-catching but still quite a way from release. It’s also likely a move by Netflix to encourage subscribers to keep paying for a monthly membership even if their queue is bone dry at the moment.
Note that the new section is only, for now, accessible on TV. It does not appear on iPads, iOS, Android, or desktop versions of Netflix. When using Netflix on your TV, the “Worth the Wait” section is located under the “New and Popular” tab. Variety is reporting that Netflix plans to test the feature on the web “later this year.”
Like any streaming service, Netflix has had so many comings and goings–announcements and cancelations–of its shows that it’s hard to even know what you should scan a “Worth the Wait” section for. So far, we have clocked a total of 23 shows Netflix has canceled this year. But cancelations can also mean pretty much anything: Fan favorite animated series Tuca & Bertie was canceled by Netflix in 2019, but earlier this year was scooped up by Adult Swim.
