Netflix October 2019 new releases: the best movies and TV shows coming this month
Meryl Streep in The Laundromat, the Breaking Bad Movie, Big Mouth season 3, Riverdale season 4 and two(!) Paul Rudds
Netflix does not take Halloween lightly.
Though we will be without the streaming service's spookiest shows - Stranger Things and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina released new seasons in October 2017 and 2018 respectively - there is a slew of great original horror films coming this month, including a fresh Stephen King adaptation (In the Tall Grass).
Elsewhere, Sam Worthington leads Fractured, which sees a man hunt for his wife and daughter who disappear after a visit to a creepy hospital, and Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) appears in Eli, a story about a gravely ill boy whose treatments leave him plagued by nightmarish experiences.
Scares aside, there are high-profile returning series in Big Mouth, Riverdale and The Kominsky Method, a hip-hop talent show led by Cardi B and Chance The Rapper, a new series featuring Paul Rudd in a dual role, El Camino: a Breaking Bad Movie and Meryl Streep in Steven Soderbergh's latest, The Laundromat.
Here's everything coming to Netflix this month.
