New to Netflix in September

New to Netflix in September


As usual, we’re looking forward to some fresh telly and film coming to Netflix in September. This is what you can expect in the coming month…

By Ross Campbell, Writer + Simon Ward, Content Editor

Oh, it’s a good-un this month. The supreme Netflix content creators have truly outdone themselves with a wonderful selection of both TV and films landing throughout the month, including some massive Netflix Originals you won’t want to miss.


This September – get ready to scream with delight – sees the return for the all-conquering Sex Education, with its third season landing on Friday 17 September. The entire season (plus the previous two) is available to binge right there and then. Squeal!


And don’t forget, if you’re streaming the latest Netflix shows this month, Virgin Media is the leading major broadband provider for streaming content (according to the Netflix ISP Speed Index). Good to go? Let’s jump into this month of goodness…


The Iron Giant 

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

Pop culture icon, The Iron Giant, was originally brought to life on the pages of Ted Hughes’ novel The Iron Man (nothing to do with the MCU), before stomping his way onto our screens – and hearts – in 1999. And now Netflix has the showing rights, so a new generation can enjoy the Cold War-era friendship between behemoth robot alien and boy. 


Cemetery Junction 

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

Cemetery Junction comes from the brains of The Office co-creators, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant. In this 1970s-set coming-of-age comedy drama, three mates are happily whiling away their days drinking, scrapping and chasing girls, until Freddie (Christian Cooke) realises that the world is bigger than the small town he grew up in.  


Old School

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

When married and successful Mitch Martin (Luke Wilson) returns home to find his wife having an affair, it’s time for a big lifestyle change. His buddies Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell are more than willing to help. The boys are reliving their raucous college days, and as you can expect, disaster soon follows. From the mind of Todd Phillips – who would later give us The Hangover trilogy and Joker.  


Rush Hour

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

In this late-90s comedy, Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker are unlikely cop buddies with nothing in common other than their hunger for justice. And while they may have quite different methods, it always seems to work out in the end. That’s why they made two further instalments. Get it on, and thank us later.


Mrs Wilson

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

Besides being an incredible actress, Ruth Wilson (LutherHis Dark Materials) has a very interesting family tree.

How To Be A Cowboy

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 1 September

Have you ever wanted to be a cowboy – herding cattle, throwing lassoes and getting away with wearing a Stetson? (If you’ve worn one outside of a cattle ranch, you absolutely did not get away with it). Then meet Dale Brisby, a man who keeps the cowboy traditions alive, and he might be able to teach you a thing or two. 


Afterlife Of The Party

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Thursday 2 September

It’s possible this film’s title came before the script. But no matter, because it looks like a lot of fun. When party animal Cassie (Victoria Justice) dies in her birthday week, she is given a second chance to right the wrongs of her life by fixing the relationships she broke. If she succeeds, she might just get a, ahem, wonderful afterlife.


Money Heist

Find season 5, part 1 in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 3 September. Seasons 1-4 available now

It’s the show that’s currently holding on tight to the record of being the most-watched non-English language title on Netflix. If you’re new here, it’s about a Spanish heist squad, made from considerably sterner stuff than your average grab-and-run goons. Headed up by The Professor, this elite team have their sights set on not millions, but billions of euros.  



Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 3 September

In this true story, Ken Feinberg (Michael Keaton) is tasked with compensating the families of those who lost their lives in the tragic September 11 bombings.

Blood Brothers: Malcolm X & Muhammad Ali

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Thursday 9 September

Based on the 2016 non-fiction book of the same name, this compelling limited series deals with the friendship between two of the most important, iconic and culturally significant figures of the 20th century, as well as how that relationship eventually broke down. You will not want to miss this one.



Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 10 September

In the style of the great Asian revenge films, when a ruthless criminal operative (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is poisoned and only has 24 hours to live, she spends that time peacefully contemplating her exis… nah, just kidding. She goes on a vengeful manhunt to enact her revenge. Brutal, but with a surprising heart.



Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 10 September

When Sam Mendes and Roger Deakins team up, special things happen. And that is certainly true for 1917, taking three Oscars in 2019. The First World War-set film follows two young lance corporals, Will Schofield (George MacKay) and Tom Blake (Dean-Charles Chapman), as they traverse the war-torn French countryside to deliver a message set to save thousands of souls.



Find season 6 in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 10 September. Seasons 1-5 available now

Lucifer offers itself up as “occult detective fiction”, which, while not exactly a crowded category, is a wickedly entertaining one nonetheless. The show follows Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) – fallen angel/Lord of Hell. When he grows bored of running the underworld, he decides to open a nightclub in LA and help the local police with their investigations. In the final season, he’s working his way back to the light side, having seen that there’s more to life than misery. 


Zombieland Double Tap

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 10 September

In this follow-up to Zombieland, Tallahassee (Woody Harrelson), Columbus (Jesse Eisenberg), Wichita (Emma Stone), and Little Rock (Abigail Breslin) are back, now set up as a dysfunctional family in the abandoned White House. Six years have passed since the first film, and now there are new strains of hungry zombies out there, all of which have become subject to Columbus’ neurotic rule-based system. 



Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 15 September

Made with support from the Schumacher family themselves, this new film is said to offer the definitive story of the seven-time Formula One World Champion, Michael Schumacher. From his days karting to his retirement in 2012, to his skiing accident a year later, from which he is still recovering, it comes just over 30 years since his F1 debut in Belgium.


Nailed It!

Find season 6 in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 15 September. Seasons 1-5 available now

Bake Off for bad bakers. Now in its sixth series, you’d think that watching amateur bakers with proven poor skills in the kitchen trying (and spectacularly failing) to create cake masterpieces would be a bit old by now. But you’d only say that if you’ve never seen an episode of Nailed It! before. Still one of the most reliably funny formats on telly.


Sex Education

Find season 3 in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 17 September. Seasons 1 & 2 available to stream now

In the third series of Netflix’s timeless Sex Education, we’re heading back to the Anglo-American Moordale Secondary, now under new management. Hope Haddon is here to reinvigorate the study body – hopefully not getting in the way of the will-they-won’t-they chemistry between Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Maeve (Emma Mackey). All we’ve got from Asa so far is: “Lemme just say, you lot aren’t ready for season 3, trust me.”


Dear White People

Find season 4 in Apps & Games > Netflix from Wednesday 22 September. Seasons 1-3 available now

The final series of the brilliant Dear White People concludes with what looks like a 90s-inspired musical extravaganza during Samantha White (Logan Browning) and company’s senior year at Winchester University. It also looks like we’ll get to see what happened to the characters in a flash-forward to a not-so-distant post-pandemic future.


Midnight Mass

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Friday 24 September

Horror fans, this one is for you. In this supernatural, keep-the-big-light-on Netflix Original, we’re the unfortunate witnesses to the strange goings-on of an isolated island community. The already eerie environs are only eerified further on the arrival of a mysterious priest. Seriously, leave the light on us for us, will you? We can hear a creak in the hallway...


Queen & Slim

Find it in Apps & Games > Netflix from Thursday 30 September

Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out) and Jodie Turner-Smith (Anne Boleyn) are on the run in this romantic drama, after a racially fuelled altercation with the law leaves a police officer dead at the scene.
