September is shaping up to be a big month for Netflix with the second season of Narcos and the introduction of Marvel’s Luke Cage in the streaming service’s latest series with its partnership with Marvel. Without further ado, let’s see what else is New on Netflix Canada for September! Oh, if you’re in the U.S., be sure to check out what’s new on Netflix U.S. in September as well.
As we’ve mentioned a few times, Narcos is a favourite here at Techaeris. In the second season, notorious drug kingpin Pablo Escobar is on the run, with the Colombian authorities in relentless pursuit — and determined to put an end to his illegal activities. Season 2 returns on September 2nd.
The third season of From Dusk Till Dawn returns on September 7th with new episodes weekly. In the new season, the Gecko brothers find themselves in the vortex of the culebra world forcing them to assemble an unlikely crew to take on the forces of Hell, and the new set of enemies determined to take them down.
September 16th has the debut of the Netflix Original movie Arq. In a war-torn future where corporations battle over the last of the world’s resources, Renton and Hannah fight off a band of intruders who want a prototype energy technology that could solve the global energy crisis. But the mysterious technology is also making the day repeat, trapping everyone into an escalating confrontation that will determine the fate of the world — and force Renton against Hannah.
Netflix’s first new series this month debuts on September 22nd and stars Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Jake Johnson, and more. Easy is an eight-episode anthology series from creator Joe Swanberg that explores diverse Chicago characters as they fumble through the modern maze of love, sex, technology and culture. Fans of the previously cancelled Longmire, which was picked up and continued by Netflix, will be treated to a fifth season on September 23rd.
The show many will undoubtedly be waiting for though is Marvel’s Luke Cage, the latest in Netflix’s partnership with Marvel, and the third of four series to air before culminating in Marvel’s The Defenders at a later date. After a sabotaged experiment leaves him with super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage (Mike Colter) becomes a fugitive trying to rebuild his life in modern day Harlem, New York City. But he is soon pulled out of the shadows and must fight a battle for the heart of his city – forcing him to confront a past he had tried to bury.

Two new Netflix Original Comedy Specials will air this month.

September 16th brings The White Helmets, a Netflix original short documentary, set in Aleppo, Syria and Turkey in early 2016. As the violence intensifies, The White Helmets follows three volunteer rescue workers as they put everything on the line to save civilians affected by the war, all the while wracked with worry about the safety of their own loved ones. Moving and inspiring, The White Helmets (directed by Academy Award®–nominated director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara) is both a snapshot of the harrowing realities of life for ordinary Syrians who remain in the country, and a humbling portrait of the power of the human spirit.
Audrie & Daisy is an urgent real-life drama that examines the ripple effects on families, friends, schools and communities when two underage young women find that sexual crimes against them have been caught on camera. From acclaimed filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (The Island President, The Rape of Europa), Audrie & Daisy — which made its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival — takes a hard look at America’s teenagers who are coming of age in this new world of social media bullying, spun wildly out of control. Audrie & Daisy streams starting on September 23rd.
Finally, on September 30th, Netflix takes a closer look at the story of Amanda Knox.
