Netflix is building up to an incredibly strong finish to 2017. After a relatively quiet August, they’re kicking off the autumnal TV season with aplomb in September, with a couple of Original favourites making their return early in the month. Theres a new cartel in town for Narcos season 3, which drops on the first of the month, followed a week later by the fourth season of Bojack Horseman.
It’s also a big month for Original film – Angelina Jolie’s controversial First They Killed My Father arrives on the 15th – and comedy – Marc Maron and Jerry Seinfeld register their first Netflix-exclusive comedy specials.
All in all, there’s a lot of TV to be seen to. Best clear your schedule.
