The beginning of the month means different things to different people. It is a chance to reset a new month, get closer to the new year, and the start of a reset for Netflix. If you have the streaming platform on rotation, then you know new shows are coming. It’s October and the list of new Netflix additions is pretty impressive. While we are losing a few good shows/movies, the list of what we are getting is clutch. We ran through the schedule and put together a list of the 5 Things on October Netflix you need to see.
Season 2 of Stranger Things begins at the end of the month. This Netflix Original Series made its debut last year and was a huge hit. It racked up SAG Awards and Golden Globe nominations. The highly anticipated second season drops onto the service on October 27. Just in time for Halloween, it’s safe to say the second season won’t disappoint.
On October 20th the world will get to see the bio series, The Day I Met El Chapo: The Kate del Castillo Story. This is a three-part series that chronicles the encounter between the notorious Mexican drug lord and a Mexican actress. The series gives a rare look at the the process to get a meeting with El Chapo. This series was filmed during the time El Chapo was on the run as he had escaped from prison. Series creator and producer David Broome went to great lengths to tell this story and seems to have captured the events and timeline accordingly.
“I was extremely excited to delve into the craziest ‘life imitating art’ saga I’ve ever heard, a story wrapped around a core of complex social and political issues.” – David Broome
Chris Brown gives us a look inside with his documentary, Welcome to My Life. Set to hit Netflix on October 7th, a bevy of celebs give a very personal account of the singer. They talk about knowing him from a child, watching him grow, and helping him deal with some of his situations. This documentary is very personal and allows people to see Brown for who he is.
The list of Netflix October movies are perfect for kicking it indoors once the weather gets chilly. You, your laptop, and your Boo can snuggle up and watch flicks like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Don’t Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice In The Hood, Donnie Darko, and the Hateful Eight. Of course there are more but those are the ones we like.
October means Halloween is coming so scary flicks are in high demand. Believe it or not, Netflix isn’t packed with scary movies. However, Julia Ducournau’s cannibal movie Raw will bring all the gore and scare you crave. If you haven’t already done so, get your Netflix subscription in order. T-Mobile is also offering a special that includes automatic membership with service so you might want to hit them up for info too.
