Say goodbye to summer. Living in Alabama, I won’t lament the loss of scorching temperatures and unbearable humidity. I say bring on the cool weather. And with it a whole new slate of Netflix new releases. It’s not a stacked slate of originals as Netflix looks to be keeping its powder dry for the Disney+ onslaught.
The big original is Ryan Murphy’s The Politician (September 27). Its premise is the lead character will face a new election every year with the first being for student council. I guess it’s safe to assume Netflix is feeling the back-to-school vibes too. Other originals landing include the second season of Disenchantment, The I-Land, and Unbelievable.
On the studio content slate, several big movies will debut on Netflix. 300 kicks off September with enough abs to make a Men’s Health magazine blush. American Psycho and The Lord of the Rings fill out the movie slate. As for TV fans, get caught up with both seasons nine of The Walking Dead and Shameless.
It wouldn’t be my monthly Netflix update if I didn’t implore you to watch the best originals on Netflix. Peaky Blinders is a must-watch. Avoid spoilers as it’s already airing in the UK before it makes its debut in America. You have to watch The Last Kingdom and lend support to Uhtred as he rides towards season four. Destiny is all.
