What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in September 2016

As the summer fades slowly into fall, Netflix’s library of shows and movies shifts with the seasons, bringing a fresh batch of films and TV series, both original and otherwise.

Big additions to the popular streaming outlet in September include a new season of its popular Pablo Escobar crime drama Narcos, and the launch of its latest superhero series, Luke Cage, which will premiere at the end of the month.

Other originals worth watching include Easy, a new comedy series about life and love in Chicago that will feature guest stars including Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, and Marc Maron. Also set for release this month is a special France-themed edition of popular cooking documentary series Chef’s Table.

In fact, Netflix releases a good number of house-made documentaries this month, with highlights that include The White Helmets, a documentary about first responders in Syria, and Amanda Knox, which follows the story of an American woman who spent nearly four years in an Italian prison before being acquitted of murder.

On a lighter note, the service releases two new comedy specials in September, with full-length features from Cedric The Entertainer and Iliza Shlesinger to tickle your funny bone.

Those looking for a blockbuster won’t have too difficult of a time, either, as all four Jaws films start streaming, in addition to dance classic Footloose, and war drama Saving Private Ryan. Those in search of a newer hit will find a smattering of interesting releases, but none which has garnered more critical acclaim than the Alan Turing biopic The Imitation Game, which stars Benedict Cumberbatch.

As always, some classics will be heading into the streaming ether this coming month. A few titles to catch before they go include racing classics Days of Thunder and 2 Fast 2 Furious, and Ben Stiller’s oft-quoted comedy Zoolander.
