It’s another month, and there is some great content to watch on Netflix. After a quiet few months, you’re spoiled with shows and movies on Netflix to watch in September.

Things have been on the quiet side for many streaming services lately. It’s all linked to the pandemic and how streamers need to film and get through post-production compared to the way broadcast networks work.

September is shaping up to be a good month for a few streaming platforms. Netflix is certainly one of them, with some big releases throughout the month.

Whether you want comedy, horror, or something in between, Netflix has you covered. The list can be overwhelming, so we’re bringing you the top picks for shows and movies on Netflix in September 2021.

7 must-watch shows and movies on Netflix in September

The list is in release date order just to avoid favoritism and to make it easier to get your viewing schedule in order.

Afterlife of the Party

What happens when we’re dead? Victoria Justice’s series Afterlife of the Party takes a look. When Cassie is killed in a freak accident, she comes back to relive all her past mistakes. Can she make better choices this time? That’s something she’ll need to figure out on this journey.

If you love the likes of Russian Doll for its “better yourself” storytelling, Afterlife of the Party is going to be for you.

The movie drops on Netflix on Thursday, Sept. 2.

Money Heist

The first half of Money Heist‘s final season is here. Yes, it’s sad that it’s the final season, but all good things must come to an end. It’s better that a show goes out on a high than dragging the storyline along.

It’s time for another heist, but will they all make it out alive? The second half of the season drops later this year.

Money Heist Season 5, Part 1 is out on Friday, Sept. 3.

On the Verge

For those who want comedy, there are a few shows and movies on Netflix to check out. On the Verge is one of them.

The series follows four women who are all looking to find themselves and improve their lives. However, they’re also on the brink of a midlife crisis, which is sure to bring plenty of comedic drama.

Watch the new series on Tuesday, Sept. 7.


As we get toward the middle of the month, there are some more great shows and movies on Netflix to watch. Kate stars Mary Elizabeth Winstead as an assassin who has been poisoned. She has just 24 hours to live, and she’s going to use that time to get revenge on her enemies.

However, when the daughter of one of her victims shows up, she needs to figure out how to make amends there.

Watch Kate on Friday, Sept. 10.


There are a few final seasons coming this year, and Lucifer is one of them. Season 6 will have 10 episodes, bringing an end to the Devil’s journey. He’s just become New God, and now he’s going to have to figure out how to keep peace on Earth and in Heaven.

Oh, and there’s the tricky thing of Dan being in Hell. Will Lucifer and Amenadiel find a way to save Dan’s soul?

Midnight Mass
