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

The summer of 2018 is over, but Netflix is still providing subscribers with a slew of new streaming options to watch in the comfort of their homes this October. 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 season of raunchy animated series Big Mouth and the third season of Marvel’s Daredevil, as well as the premiere of original series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina. Original drama The Kindergarten Teacher also premieres, along with the second season of documentary series Making a Murderer.

The streaming giant will also add a long list of compelling films including Stephen King adaptations The Green Mile and The Shining, as well as family-friendly fantasy The NeverEnding Story.

Our top picks for October


The series that kicked off Marvel’s collaboration with Netflix on street-level superhero shows returns for a third season, and it will have to accomplish a lot to top the success of the first two chapters of the saga, which introduced blind vigilante Matt Murdock (Charlie Cox) and memorable villain Wilson Fisk (Vincent D’Onofrio), as well as a tremendous supporting cast of characters. The finale of crossover series The Defenders left Matt’s fate uncertain, and the third season is primed to explore what happens when he finally “lets the devil out.”

‘Making a Murderer’

The first season of this documentary series chronicled the case of Steven Avery, a man who served 18 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, only to find himself accused of murder — along with his nephew — several years later by the same authorities in Wisconsin. The acclaimed series was hailed for its dramatic analysis of the events leading up to and during the prosecution of Avery and Brendan Dassey and led to a series of escalating calls for justice that prompted responses from both the White House and the U.S. Supreme Court. The second season explores the aftermath of those events and the appeals made in their cases.

‘The Shining’

Widely regarded as one of the most terrifying movies ever made, Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 adaptation of Stephen King’s novel of the same name cast Jack Nicholson as a struggling writer who agrees to serve — along with his wife and son — as the winter caretaker of a remote, mountaintop hotel. As the hotel’s sinister past begins to erode his sanity, the three inhabitants find themselves fighting for survival and their sanity against terrifying supernatural forces. Given the impending Halloween season, the arrival of The Shining offers prime content for your scary movie marathon this holiday.

As usual, October marks your last chance to watch a variety of shows and movies before they leave Netflix. Be sure to catch horror hits The Babadook and Curse of Chucky before they disappear, as well as the acclaimed series Freaks and Geeks and action classic Bad Boys.

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