What’s new on Netflix and what’s leaving in October 2023

No one can accuse Netflix of resting on its laurels in October. Almost everything new on Netflix in the next 31 days is very exciting, including new episodes of Lupin, the premiere of The Fall of the House of Usher, the new season of Big Mouth, documentaries about David Beckham and Uber as well as a whole lot more.

Movie lovers also have a lot to look forward to, including the Netflix premiere of Dune (2021), as well as the return of some old favorites like Silver Linings Playbook, American Beauty, Catch Me If You Can, It Follows, Scarface, and the first four Mission: Impossible films. That broad selection of newly arrived movies from the last three decades has a little bit of something for everyone. And that should make for some very happy subscribers this month.

To help you keep track of what to watch and when, we’ve assembled this comprehensive rundown of everything that’s new on Netflix in October 2023, as well as everything that’s leaving at the end of the month. Our picks for the month are in bold.

If you’re looking for some additional guidance on what to watch, we also have lists of the best movies on Netflix and the best shows on Netflix. If Netflix isn’t your only streaming service, we also have helpful articles on the best movies on Amazon Prime and the best TV shows on Amazon Prime, as well as plenty of guides for Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max.

Ditch your cable box (and save some cash), for the streaming landscape is now the best way to enjoy new movies and shows. Between Netflix, Prime Video, and Disney+, they’re always something exciting to watch, and we’ve always got our eyes peeled for what’s new on Apple TV+ too.

Each month, Apple TV+ introduces new films and series to its growing library, and we make it our duty to shine a light on all the most promising, exciting, and culturally relevant additions. We’ve got plenty of ground to cover for October 2023, so let’s start unpacking all these autumnal releases!

The best movies on Amazon Prime Video (September 2023)
Jake Gyllenhaal in The Covenant.

The new arrivals from Warner Bros. Pictures dominated many of the top slots in the best movies on Amazon Prime Video this month. While Elvis and The Batman ranked among the most popular movies on Prime Video, an unexpected Warner Bros. film surpassed both in the final week of September. Those Who Wish Me Dead, which premiered simultaneously on Max and in theaters in 2021, has defied the odds by becoming a sleeper hit on Prime Video. Of course, it helps that the film has Angelina Jolie in the leading role.

Prime Video's other major addition this week is Guy Ritchie's The Covenant, an action thriller that is currently No. 1 on Amazon's movie chart. This Jake Gyllenhaal-led film may not have dominated the box office, but it's found an audience on Prime Video.
