Netflix News: October Expirations and Releases


Iiiiiiiiit’s time for our monthly dose of Netflix News! If you’re anything like me, October’s nippy air is the perfect excuse to retreat indoors, sip on a latte or hot apple cider, and indulge in some new shows and movies.

This isn’t a great month for the chefs or house flippers among us—it looks like most of these shows are up for removal—but it’s going to be a phenomenal 31 days for the rom-com lovers. Plus, Arrow, The Flash, and Supernatural? Here for this. October also features the debut of the Netflix original movie Mascots, director Christopher Guest’s first mockumentary since the late 2000s. I had the chance to see it earlier this month, and if deadpan mockumentaries with ace improvisers are your thing, you will love this.

Take a look below for some relevant titles going and coming, and be sure to click here for a full list of what’s leaving and here for what’s coming.
