Ah, September. Kids are back in school, the weather should start to cool off just a little bit, what better time to curl up on the couch and check out what’s new on Netflix US? This month we’ve got some great new shows and movies, and a lot of new TV seasons have been added to everybody’s favorite streaming service. So without further ado, here’s what’s new on Netflix US in September. Oh, if you’re in Canada, be sure to check out what’s new on Netflix Canada in September as well.
Netflix Original Series
September has some huge shows to look forward to with Netflix Originals. Netflix has been knocking it out of the park with their original series’ up until now and there’s no sign of them stopping anytime soon.
Let’s start at the very end of the month, September 30th. That’s when you’ll be able to binge watch the first season of Marvel’s Luke Cage. We got our first glimpse of Luke in another Netflix Original, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, and I know I’m excited to see where the character goes after moving on from Ms. Jones.
Might as well keep moving backwards. On September 23rd, we’ll see the release of Longmire Season 5. Some of us here at Techaeris are huge fans of the Longmire series, and I can only imagine that Alex will probably plow through this entire season in the span of a few days once it’s released.
The next Original on the list has a stellar cast of actors, celebrities, and more. Easy is the name, September 22nd is the date, and just look at some of the cast for this 8-episode series: Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, Jake Johnson, Marc Maron, Dave Franco, Hannibal Buress, Emily Ratajkowski, Michael Chernus, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Aya Cash, Jane Adams, Elizabeth Reaser, Evan Jonigkeit and more. The series follows a diverse cast of Chicago residents making their way in the world. They’ll naturally be distracted by love, sex, technology, and culture.
Last, but absolutely not least, September 2nd brings the return of Narcos for its second season. You may have seen that Netflix is already asking #WhoKilledPablo and it’s entirely possible that on September 2nd you’ll be able to find out.
Fans of Chelsea Handler can check out new episodes including guests Chris Pratt, Nick Jonas, Jessica Alba, Ann Coulter, members of the Stranger Things cast (Millie, Gaten, and Caleb), and more.
Netflix Original Comedy Specials
Most everybody likes to laugh, and Netflix has started providing more Netflix Original comedy specials in order to help in that regard. Up first on September 16th, you’ll be able to check out Cedric the Entertainer: Live from the Ville. Filmed in the Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, this new comedy special touches on aggressive rap lyrics, Snapchat, President Obama, and more.
On September 23rd, you’ll be able to catch the debut of the new Iliza Shlesinger: Confirmed Kills comedy special. Filmed in Chicago (woo!), this comedy special will bring a new round of Iliza’s fearlessly fresh observational comedy.
Netflix Original Documentaries
September is a big month for Netflix Original Documentaries with five new shows for you to watch. Up first on the 2nd, Chef’s Table season 3 will be available. Watch as chefs Alain Passard, Adeline Grattard, Alexandre Couillon and Michel Troisgros prepare dishes to whet your appetite for French cuisine.
On September 13th, keep the tissues handy for Extremis. This documentary follows the journey of doctors, patients, and families as they make difficult end of life decisions in a hospital ICU.
It doesn’t get too much happier with the next documentary either… The White Helmets follow the trials of three volunteer rescue workers in Syria, Aleppo, and Turkey in early 2016. If you’ve paid any attention to the news lately, you’ll know those were some particularly bad areas, and rescue workers would not face an easy road. The White Helmets is directed by Academy Award®–nominated director Orlando von Einsiedel.
Audrie & Daisy debuts on September 23rd, and jeez, documentary fans will just want to hug their loved ones extra tight after this month. This documentary tells the story of two underage girls who have found that sexual crimes committed against them have been caught on camera. Here you’ll see how American teenagers are growing up in an era of social media bullying, and how completely out of control things can get.
Last but not least, Amanda Knox premieres on September 30th. Will this break the streak of horribly sad documentaries? Maybe… maybe not. Here you’ll see the story of the case that made headlines around the world. Was Amanda a cold-blooded murderer, or just a naive student caught in the wrong place at the wrong time?
Netflix Original Series For Kids
Yikes, I think we all need a palate cleanser after that last section, and what better way to proceed than with programming for children? Here we’ll see two brand new shows as well as one returning show.
Up first on September 2nd, we’ll get our first look at both new shows. Kulipari: An Army of Frogs follows the idyllic life of a group of peaceful amphibians who live under the protection of a group of super-powered frogs called the Kulipari, as well as a protective spell called “The Veil.” But when the Spider Queen and Scorpion Army leader join forces to conquer the frogs, things will get interesting. Kulipari: An Army of Frogs stars Mark Hamill, Keith David, and Wendie Malick.
Kazoops asks a very simple question: who says the world works the way grown-ups think it should? Starring Reece Pockney, Scott Langley, and Alex Babic, Kazoops follows the story of a six year old boy named Monty. Monty has a spirited imagination, and along with his best friend — the family’s pet pig, Jimmy Jones — confronts a preconception about life, embarking on an imaginary musical adventure with Jimmy Jones to find fresh perspectives.
On September 23rd you’ll be able to watch Season 4 of Veggietales In The House. Your favorite vegetables will find all new adventures after getting out of the garden and into the house.
