Netflix Originals Coming to Netflix in September 2016

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar


After a dry August in terms of Netflix Originals, September 2016 looks to be the start of a big few months for its Original content. We’ll see the return and demise of our favorite drug lord, go back into the kitchen, and head to Hell’s Kitchen once more.

We’re also expecting a few more Netflix Original kids’ shows to arrive during September 2016, but without confirmations from Netflix, we’ll have to leave these and wait until later in the month.

Chef’s Table (Season 3)

September 2nd 

Chef's Table Season 3

Chef’s Table has been a real gem hidden away in the Netflix Original lineup, giving us a rare insight into the kitchens of some of the most prestigious chefs in the world. Each season, we’ve traveled the world experiencing different cuisines and cooking styles, but for Season 3, the show is taking a different direction and focusing exclusively on French chefs.

Featured in Season 3, or otherwise dubbed Chef’s Kitchen: France, are Alain Passard from L’Arpège, Michel Troisgros from Maison Troisgros, Adeline Grattard from Yam’Tcha, and Alexandre Couillon from La Marine. It’s a shorter season than those that came before it, but you can expect Season 4 of Chef’s Table to arrive in 2017.

Narcos (Season 2)

September 2nd 


In Season 2 of Narcos, we will see the demise and fall of one of the biggest drug kingpins of the 1980s, Pablo Escobar. We left Season 1 with Pablo fleeing the prison that he built for himself, and life is only bound to get tougher for Pablo with the authorities closing in.

We’ll likely see Pablo’s mental state deteriorate throughout the second season, and we’re keen to see how the show creators will handle the final moments of Pablo’s life, as those are often conflicted in real-world reports. For more on the second season of Narcos, you should check out our preview.

Kazoops! (Season 1)

September 2nd – Excludes ANZ, UK/IE


After a summer of kids’ titles added to Netflix left, right, and center, September returns to its normal schedule of adding one or two a month. This month, it will see the debut of the British children’s show Kazoops! The show, aimed at preschoolers, follows a boy and his pet pig on his imaginary adventures.

From Dusk Till Dawn (Season 3)

From September 7th – Original in CA, LATAM, BE, FR, DACH, UK/IE, India, Italy, Spain – Weekly Episodes


Returning for a first run in some Netflix regions is Season 3 of From Dusk Till Dawn. The series, based upon the original starring Salma Hayek and Quentin Tarantino, has been going from strength to strength in recent years and shows no sign of slowing down.

From Dusk Till Dawn is a first-run Original in multiple Netflix regions, meaning you’ll be getting new episodes every single week.

The White Helmets (2016 – Documentary)

September 16th 


Of the two documentaries currently scheduled for September, this is by far the one I’m most excited about. Netflix has been great at producing documentaries featuring modern real-world conflict and continues to do so with The White Helmets. Covering a group of brave volunteer rescue workers in Aleppo, Syria, it’ll try to tell the story of the humanitarian crisis in the region and how there are glimmers of hope.

Easy (Season 1)

September 22nd 

Joe Swanberg Easy

Arriving later in the month is a comedy series from Joe Swanberg. Up until now, Joe has been known for his comedy movies, such as 2013’s Drinking Buddies, 2015’s Digging for Fire, and 2011’s You’re Next. We’re yet to see what Easy will look like, but we do have a few early details on the show, and it promises to be quite possibly the most unique comedy in the Netflix Original library.

The show is set to be an anthology series that will take a diverse group of people from Chicago and have them tackle issues such as love, sex, technology, and culture. It’s got a great cast on board including the likes of Orlando Bloom, Malin Akerman, and Jake Johnson.

Longmire (Season 5)

September 23rd – Only available in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.


We’re super stoked to see the return of Longmire on Netflix. Originally airing on A&E, Netflix picked up the show for a fourth season in September 2015, but fans were nervous it was only being picked up for one additional season. Thankfully, Netflix announced that it would indeed return for a Season 5, and we’re getting all the episodes at once on September 23rd, but only in a few Netflix regions.

The crime thriller will pick up where the events of Season 4 left off and continue the rebuilding of a Wyoming sheriff’s life after he lost his wife.

Iliza Shlesinger: Confirmed Kills (Standup Special – 2016)

September 23rd

Iliza Schlesinger

Iliza is returning to Netflix for the second time within the Netflix Original category. Her last performance arrived on Netflix back in January 2015, so it’s been a long wait, but she’s back and promises to be her biggest show yet. Filmed in Chicago, Iliza will once again deliver her unique comic observation.

Marvel’s Luke Cage (Season 1)

September 30th


I was debating whether I was more excited for Narcos or Luke Cage, but after remembering what Luke Cage is building towards, it was a no-brainer. It will mark the first solo outing for Luke Cage but not his first appearance, as most will remember his badass showing up in Jessica Jones.

Luke Cage Season 1 will cover the reluctant hero’s origin story, which will involve plenty of betrayal and death. This will mark the fourth season of the Netflix and Marvel deal on Netflix.

Amanda Knox (2016 – Documentary)

September 30



Looking to capitalize on what Making a Murderer did for Steven Avery, this brand new one-off documentary looks into the controversial and worldwide spectacle that was this notorious murder case, which made and continues to make shockwaves around the world.
