The first day of Fall has arrived.
Fall is the best time of the year. The weather is cooling down, the trees are beginning to change colors, and the kids that were terrorizing your block are back in school. Football has returned, and family-themed holidays are just a few months away. Sexy nurses and sexy cops will soon populate Halloween house parties and costume-themed clubs. As the temperature drops, people will be spending more time inside. That means more time to catch up with your favorite shows, or indulge in a new series.
Netflix must be aware of this, because their Fall line-up of shows and movies is on point. The video streaming service took the industry by storm a few years ago by offering a subscription package that murdered rental services. Then, Netflix shook the game up once more when they started producing their own original series of shows and movies. Netflix's original shows like Orange Is The New Black and House of Cards have created cult-like followings while amassing a wealth of critical acclaim. This Fall, Netflix will be bringing back one already successful series of theirs, Stranger Things. The highly anticipated second season will continue to employ 80s nostalgia and suspenseful sci-fi storytelling when it drops right before Halloween. If monsters and Reagan-era references aren’t your thing though, there are several interesting new shows and movies dropping over the next three months, including a host of timeless movies being added to their ever-expanding catalog of films. Marvel is set to deliver another branch of their universe, while Spike Lee is getting a modern-day rendition of one of his most celebrated classics. Creepy Halloween movies and throwback comedy flicks also make an appearance.
So whether you're indulging in cuffing season and need some Netflix and chill time, or you’ve formed a binge-watching habit and need a new show, there’s something for everyone in this run-down of must-watch shows and movies for the Fall.
Here’s our list of the best Netflix has to offer this Fall.
