What’s new on Netflix UK in September 2020 – all the shows and movies coming up

September sees a host of new series and films including the latest from Ryan Murphy, Kenny Ortega and Charlie Kaufman, as well as a new thriller starring Robert Pattinson and Tom Holland.

The Devil All The Time: Tom Holland as Arvin Russell.

We may be spending more time out of our houses now than we were earlier on in the year, but the reliance on streaming platforms for new content remains as high as ever – and thankfully Netflix has a slew of releases launching this month.


Some of the most exciting titles are highly anticipated new films – the latest feature from acclaimed writer/director Charlie Kaufman, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, has already arrived, followed by thriller The Devil All the Time, which boasts an impressive ensemble cast spearheaded by Tom Holland and Robert Pattinson.

There’s also a new film starring Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown that follows the escapades of Enola Holmes, the younger sister of Sherlock and Mycroft, and a brand-new romcom titled Love, Guaranteed for lovers of the Hallmark-esque.

As for new series, comedian Katherine Ryan stars in her first sitcom, The Duchess, which she also wrote, while prolific producer Ryan Murphy is back with his latest series Ratched, a prequel based on the eponymous nurse – famous for being the villain in One Flew over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

Other highlights include Young Wallander, a series following the famous Swedish detective soon after his graduation; Julie and the Phantoms, a new musical series from Kenny Ortega, the creator of High School Musical; and Away, a sci-fi series starring Hillary Swank, while younger audiences will be able to enjoy Camp Cretaceous, the first animated series in the Jurassic Park franchise.
