What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in September 2018

The summer of 2018 isn’t quite over yet, and Netflix is providing subscribers with a slew of new streaming options to watch in the cool comfort of their homes this September. From original shows to top-notch films, Netflix has a massive number of compelling offerings lined up. Read on for all the highlights, then scroll down for a full list of what’s new on Netflix.

Several popular house-produced series return this September, and some much-anticipated new series debut, providing viewers with plenty of binge-watching options. Most notable are the second seasons of mockumentary series American Vandal and Marvel’s Kung Fu superhero series Iron Fist, as well as the premiere of limited series Maniac. Original comedy feature Nappily Ever After also premieres this month, as does the musical documentary Quincy.

The streaming giant will also add a long list of compelling films including Marvel’s blockbuster superhero feature Black Panther and Disney’s A Wrinkle in Time. The eighth season of hit zombie drama The Walking Dead also debuts in September.

Our top picks for September

‘American Vandal’

The first season of this mockumentary series was a surprise hit that parodied true crime shows filtered through the lens of high-school drama. Season 2 ups the ante with an incident that makes the phallic graffiti of the first season seem tame in comparison, and blurs the line between reality and fiction as the first season’s amateur filmmakers deal with their newfound fame and a new investigation surrounding a mysterious vandal known as “The Turd Burglar.”

‘Iron Fist’ Season 2

It’s been the weakest of Marvel’s street-level superhero shows so far, but Iron Fist still packs a punch. Finn Jones’ portrayal of the martial-arts vigilante was noticeably improved in the crossover miniseries The Defenders, and his supporting role in the second, critically praised season of Luke Cage was a high point of the character’s live-action presence so far. Now all eyes are on Season 2 of Iron Fist to find out whether he can keep up that momentum.


The debut trailer for this limited series came out of nowhere, but quickly became one of the most fascinating projects on the horizon for Netflix. Official details are sketchy, but the series casts Emma Stone and Jonah Hill as a pair of strangers who volunteer for an experimental treatment, only to, well … have something happen that sends them on a weird journey full of fantastic visual moments glimpsed in the trailer. True Detective director and executive producer Cary Fukunaga directs the series, so that’s probably a good indication of what to expect.

‘Black Panther’

One of the highest-grossing movies of all time makes its debut on Netflix, offering audiences another opportunity to visit the African land of Wakanda and experience the first solo adventure for newly crowned King T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) as he takes on a challenge to the throne from the man known as Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan). Black Panther is more than just a superhero movie. It’s an industry turning point that will have you shouting, “Wakanda forever!”

As usual, September marks your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch widely praised hits like The Imitation Game and Dead Poets Society, as well as the first two films in Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, before they hit the streaming ether.

Below is the full list of everything new coming to the streamer in the month of September, and everything going away. The bolded names signify more of our favorites to help you load up your binge bin.
