This week, Netflix Australia increased its premium plan pricing by $2 a month. In a bid to take some of the sting out, it’s dropping 11 new Netflix Originals onto the service this long weekend – including the highly-anticipated Raising Dion. Here’s the full list!

New shows coming to Netflix this long weekend include Stephen King’s supernatural horror flick In the Tall Grass, season 2 of the sugar documentary Rotten, the continuation of period crime drama Peaky Blinders and new episodes of the Goosebumps-esque kids show Creeped Out. The third and worst Pitch Perfect movie is also landing on Monday. (Don’t watch it.)
