Because I'm Addicted

As if the slight chill in the almost-fall air wasn't enough to make you want to cuddle up in bed all day, there's a slew of shows and movies—both new and classic—coming to Netflix this October that'll convince you to stay in. Harper's Bazaar has conveniently compiled a list of all the new-to-Netflix series and movies you'll want to binge next month. Get your queue ready for cult classics that are perfect for Halloween, chick-flick favorites, and intellectually stimulating Netflix originals.


Indulge in rom-com favorites like Miss Congeniality and Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous. Watch I Love You, Man, Tommy Boy, Meet the Robinsons, Schitt's Creek Season 3, or Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby if you're looking for a laugh-out-loud-funny flick.


For some sappy dramatic romance, you'll be able to stream Must Love Dogs, No Reservations, Sleeping With Other People, and While We're Young. If you're in the mood for something with a little more action, watch 88 Minutes, Blood Diamond, Middle Man, or Money.


Just in time for Halloween, get into the spooky spirit with Eyes Wide Shut, Ghost Patrol, The Reaping, Vanished, 13 Demons, Cult of Chucky, Donnie Darko, The Mist Season 1, and everybody's favorite throwback to the '80s, Netflix's Stranger Things Season 2.

Netflix Originals

This October, Netflix is releasing a new variety of its own original series, films, and documentaries. A few that you'll soon be able to stream are Rodney Carrington: Here Comes the Truth, ID-0: Season 1, The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, Christina P.: Mother Inferior, Kingdom of Us, The Babysitter, The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected), 1922, One of Us, Wheelman, and Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold.

Leaving Netflix

Unfortunately, all these new picks mean that some Netflix staples will no longer be available. Some noteworthy departures this October include 30 Rock, Across the Universe, Friday Night Lights, Happy Feet, Love Actually, The Shining, and Titanic. Don't worry, you still have a few more weeks to watch your favorites one more time, but come November, they'll no longer be sitting in your queue.
