We have reached the spooky season, and I look forward to seeing what scares are in store for us. Like we do each and every week, we’re sharing all the new Netflix movies and shows debuting beginning the week of Oct. 2, 2023.

The first week of October might have a small slate, and Netflix isn’t striking up any scares, but that doesn’t mean you should look at this slate lightly. We have a groundbreaking docuseries about a global sports sensation and a movie that is bound to get awards love dropping this week.

New Netflix movies and shows to watch this week

  • Beckham, Oct. 2
  • Race to the Summit, Oct. 4
  • Lupin season 5,Oct. 5
  • Fair Play, Oct. 6

Hands down the best movie that I saw at the 2023 Sundance Film Festival was Fair PlayChloe Domont’s feature film debut delivers a razor-sharp screenplay that provides this incredibly tense battle of female empowerment and fragile male ego. I’ve watched this movie three times and each time I fall in love with the film more and more. Phoebe Dynevor gives hands down one of the best performances of the year and I hope we see her get awards love. Please seek out this movie this weekend.

Speaking of award-worthy, David Beckham is the focus of a four-part documentary series Beckham. It tells the inside story of the rise of the football star and cultural icon. From his upbringing in East London to meeting his wife Victoria to battling the highs and lows of the world of football, the series covers how it all went down. Whether or not you are a fan of David Beckham it shouldn’t matter, this is one of the most fascinating docuseries you will watch this year. It’s fantastic and a must-watch.

From our suggestions, what will you be watching? Are you excited about Beckham? Or will you be checking out Fair Play with me? Let us know, and let’s hope next week brings us more exciting Netflix additions.
