What’s new on Peacock in October 2021

NBCUniversal’s Peacock streaming service is quickly assembling an impressive collection of movies and television series to rival some of the more established services, and its library just keeps getting bigger. More new and classic films and series arrive in October, so read on for all the highlights, as well as everything else coming to the streaming service throughout the month.

You’ll find the full list of October additions to the Peacock library below, along with our recommendations in bold. (Note: Some content will not be available to watch without a paid subscription at the Peacock Premium or Peacock Premium Plus levels.)

If Peacock isn’t your only go-to streaming service, we also have helpful guides to the best movies on Netflix and best shows on Netflix, as well as the best movies streaming on Amazon and best TV shows streaming on Amazon, plus plenty of other guides for Hulu, Disney+, and HBO Max.

Our top pick for October

Halloween Kills

David Gordon Green’s 2018 revival of Halloween was the sort of retroactive reboot of the franchise that defied expectations by being really, really good and creating a new timeline for serial killer Michael Myers’ saga. It unfolded 40 years after the events of John Carpenter’s original, groundbreaking 1978 film of the same name and pretended all of the other films didn’t exist. It was a bold creative decision that paid off with an exciting, terrifying return to form for both the film’s iconic murderer and original Halloween star Jamie Lee Curtis, who reprised the role of Laurie Strode, one of Myers’ earliest targets and now one of the only people capable of ending his killing spree. Halloween Kills picks up where the 2018 film left off, with Laurie, her daughter (Judy Greer), and her granddaughter (Andi Matichak) hoping their efforts to trap Myers in a fiery tomb will pay off. It shouldn’t come as a surprise that Myers manages to escape (since there wouldn’t be much of a film without him), and the film follows the women as they continue to hunt Myers down.
