Here’s What’s Coming to Netflix in October

     September 28, 2015


We’ve already shared the extensive list of titles that will be disappearing from Netflix streaming next month, but now it’s time to focus on the new additions. If you’ve been holding out for Netflix to catch up on The Flash or Arrow, you’ll get your chance in October when seasons 1 and 3, respectively, are made available. Same goes for critical darling Jane the Virgin and the underwhelming American Horror Story: Freak Show.

On the feature film side of things, it’s kind of slim pickens. The highlight, though, is Beasts of No Nation, which is Netflix’s first original film—though it’s “original” by acquisition, not production. Directed by Cary Fukunaga (who helmed all of True Detective Season 1), the drama stars Idris Elba and Abraham Attah and charts the life of a young boy in West Africa who is enlisted as a child soldier, chronicling the cycle of violence that robs him of innocence. I saw the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival and it is an impeccably crafted, gut-punch of a film. I highly recommend making some time to view it.
