Ready for October 2019? You should be! Because Netflix is gifting us all with many movies and TV shows, here are 10 not to miss!

As you already know, each month is an exciting time for Netflix subscribers as the streaming giant rolls out new content. Though many of the shows and movies receive surprise releases, Netflix does debut a list of most TV shows and movies we can expect to see in the coming month. September brought us some great content, but I’d say the best is yet to come this October!

Which series and movies were your favorite in September? Do you know if they will be returning next year with a second season or sequel? If not, there’s no time to worry about it, new shows and movies are on the way to keep you distracted. And with the binge model Netflix has, you can take your time watching or view all episodes in one sitting.

Instead of going through a giant list of everything that’s coming to the streaming service in October, have a look at the 10 movies and TV shows we recommend most.
