With last week’s coverage of the latest Netflix film “The Devil All The Time,” curiosity has arisen as to what other releases Netflix has up their sleeves for the upcoming months.
At the top of the list, we have a haunting series perfect for the Halloween season. “The Haunting of Hill House”, which premiered back in October of 2018, now has a sequel which has been set to release soon. Mike Flanagan has attracted his audience once again with his newest series “The Haunting of Bly Manor”. This follow-up series will premiere on Oct. 9, just in time for your Halloween themed hangouts. This series is a supernatural horror drama and will be an adaptation of the tale The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. A dramatized collection of ghost stories and fiction, the Turn of the Screw is a wildly suspenseful novel to base this series on. I am sure this will not disappoint.
Next up, Netflix will be releasing the new drama miniseries on Oct. 23, “The Queen’s Gambit”. This Netflix miniseries is set in the late 1950s and follows a young orphaned girl who discovers her passion and wild talent for the game of chess. She becomes a chess-playing prodigy all while battling her insanely troubling past of addiction.
From the creator of Sex and the City, Lily Collins stars in a new Netflix series titled “Emily in Paris”. This series pursues a young girl who was granted a dream lifestyle. Living in the heart of Paris, Emily is convinced her life is a fairytale. We follow her as she strives to perfectly balance her new career and blossoming love life- all while trying her best to master a new language in a new city. This uplifting series will premiere on Netflix on October 2.
Another spooky Netflix series will return on Oct. 19. Being a fan of true crime myself, I am excited for this series to premiere its second season. “Unsolved Mysteries”, a ghostly collection of true crime mysteries will make its comeback with six more mind blowing puzzles all left for its viewers to solve.
From creator Daniel Levy, award winning series “Schitt’s Creek” will air its sixth and final season on Oct. 7. Featuring Daniel and Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Annie Murphy, and many more, a once wealthy family is forced to live in a rundown motel which they own when they unexpectedly lose their fortune.
Lastly, on Nov. 15, the fourth season of “The Crown” will release on Netflix. This drama series will continue in its focus on the powerful reign of Queen Elizabeth during the late 1970s, along with analyzing the theatrical dynamic of the Queen’s acquaintances and personnel.
Although this is a fairly short list, the selection of your perfect binge-worthy series is endless this season. Whether you spice up your spooky season or fall in love with the characters in a drama series, I hope some of these recommendations helped you narrow down your choices of your next nightly Netflix binge.
