With only a few days before October, Netflix has released the complete list of new and returning titles coming to its library next month.
One of the fan-favorite Netflix original series that is returning to the streamer in October is the teen dramedy On My Block. Premiering on October 4th, season 4 of the series will see Ruby (Jason Genao), Jamal (Brett Gray), Monse (Sierra Capri) and Cesar (Diego Tinoco) facing new threats and deciding if their friendship is truly “ride or die” two years after going their separate ways.
Season 3 of You also arrives on Netflix on October 15th. The new season of the psychological thriller finds Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) married and raising their baby in the balmy Northern California enclave of Madre Linda, where they’re surrounded by privileged tech entrepreneurs, judgmental mommy bloggers, and Insta-famous biohackers. Joe is committed to his new role as a husband and dad, but fears Love’s lethal impulsiveness. Breaking out of a cage in a basement is one thing, but can Joe escape the prison of a picture-perfect marriage to a woman who’s wise to his tricks?
Comedy-drama The Baby-Sitters Club (October 11th), sci-fi drama Another Life (October 15th), and supernatural horror Locke & Key (October 22nd) are also coming back to the streaming giant next month for their respective second seasons.
As is the case every month, Netflix is also introducing a bunch of new original series in October. One of those is Maid, which is set to premiere on October 1st. Inspired by the New York Times best-selling memoir, Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land, the comedy drama follows the story of Alex (Margaret Qualley), a single mother who turns to housecleaning to — barely — make ends meet as she escapes an abusive relationship and overcomes homelessness to create a better life for her daughter, Maddy (Rylea Nevaeh Whittet). Seen through the emotional yet humorous lens of a desperate but determined woman, this series is a raw and inspiring exploration of a mother’s resilience.
Also debuting on October 1st is the kids’ fantasy series Scaredy Cats, which centers on a girl named Willa Ward. On her 12th birthday, Willa inherits a beautiful charm necklace that belonged to her mother, who was a witch. She soon learns that two bad witches, Wilma and Wanda, are after her locket so they can have ultimate power. In an attempt to protect the charm necklace and herself, she, together with her best friends, Scout and Lily, turn themselves into cats. To defeat the bad witches and save their town, the trio must learn to use the necklace and Willa’s witch powers.
A sitcom, titled Pretty Smart, is also hitting Netflix next month. Scheduled to premiere on October 8th, the Jack Dolgen and Doug Mand-created series stars Emily Osment as the book-smart Chelsea who discovers she has a lot to learn about happiness when she’s forced to move in with her bubbly sister (Olivia Macklin) and her three roommates Solana (Cinthya Carmona), Jayden (Micheal Hsu Rosen), and Grant (Gregg Sulkin).
The Netflix & Chill slate is also kicking off in October, so a lot of original movies arriving on the streaming service are Halloween-themed. Those movies include Escape the Undertaker, which is set to premiere on October 5th. In the interactive film featuring WWE Superstars, The Undertaker has set a trap for the decorated tag team The New Day at his mansion. What they don’t know is that The Undertaker’s mansion is an extreme Haunted House, packed to the brim with supernatural challenges. And it’s now up to viewers to decide the fate of these three poor souls trying to survive the wrath of The Undertaker.
Slasher film There’s Someone Inside Your House also drops on Netflix next month. Debuting on October 6th, the Patrick Brice-directed movie is an adaptation of the 2017 novel of the same name by Stephanie Perkins. Starring Sydney Park, Théodore Pellerin, Asjha Cooper, Jesse LaTourette, and Diego Josef, the movie follows Makani Young (Park), a senior transfer student from Hawaii who later finds herself in the center of gruesome murder cases in her newly acquainted town of Osborne, Nebraska.
Adam Randall’s thriller flick Night Teeth, meanwhile, will be available to stream on Netflix starting October 20th. The movie stars Jorge Lendeborg Jr. as Benny, a freelance chauffeur, who is hired by his friends Blaire (Debby Ryan) and Zoe (Lucy Fry) to drive them to several popular LA nightclubs. When Benny realizes that his passengers are actually centuries-old vampires, he quickly gets swept up in a power struggle between the city’s vampires and must ally himself with the girls to stay alive.
Also set to be released on Netflix next month is Diana: The Musical (October 1st), Jake Gyllenhaal thriller The Guilty (October 1st), and the Army of the Dead prequel Army of Thieves (October 29th).
