As Autumn arrives and the weather gets colder, we spend more time snuggled up as we stream the latest hit movies and shows. Netflix is providing us with a plethora of choices this October. From fan-favorites such as Hairspray, A Knight’s Tale, and Titanic to hotly anticipated new films like The Guilty, Night Teeth, and Army of Thieves – Netflix will always have something to sink your teeth into this October.

On top of what’s already been said, as always, there is a noteworthy wave of new original series programming headed our way. Subscribers can look forward to new seasons of On My Block, Another Life, Locke & Key, and last but not least, You. Additionally, make sure not to miss MAID, a bold original mini-series starring Margaret Qualley and Nick Robinson that holds the potential to be Netflix’s next surprise award-winner.

Of course, we can’t go on without mentioning Seinfeld. All 9 seasons of the classic sitcom will be finally available to stream this month, making it a necessary binge for those who have never really relished in the show’s timeless humor. Read more on our top recs below along with everything coming to Netflix throughout October. You can also find the latest new arrivals for Disney+ and HBO Max right here on DiscussingFilm.

Our Recs:

The Guilty

Jake Gyllenhaal plays a troubled police detective demoted to a 911 operator who scrambles to save a distressed caller during a harrowing day of revelations. Directed by Antoine Fuqua and based on the 2018 Danish film of the same name, this tight thriller will surely satisfy those in need of their mystery-crime fix.

The Guilty hits Netflix October 1!

You: Season 3

You has been a hit since it premiered in 2019. The third season sees leading characters Joe and Love move to the suburbs upon the birth of their son, however, their dream to be the normal family next door quickly goes down the drain. This is looking to be one of Netflix’s most-talked-about originals of the fall.

Season 3 of You lands on Netflix October 15!

Night Teeth

A college student working as a chauffeur picks up two mysterious women for a night of party-hopping across LA before he uncovers their bloodthirsty intentions. This neon-lit vampire flick boasts a stacked cast, featuring names like Debby Ryan, Megan Fox, Sydney Sweeney, Jorge Lendeborg Jr., Alfie Allen, and more. Gather your friends for a lively Halloween watch.

Night Teeth debuts on Netflix October 20!

Army of Thieves

In this prequel to Zack Snyder’s Army of the Dead, which broke streaming records on Netflix earlier this year, a mysterious woman recruits bank teller Ludwig Dieter to assist in a heist of impossible-to-crack safes across Europe. Will this zombie-less prequel live up to the expectations set by Snyder? With him on-board as a leading producer, and breakout star Matthias Schweighöfer now under his wing as a director, the odds are in this film’s favor.

Army of Thieves premieres on Netflix October 29!
