Welcome to your official look at what’s coming to Netflix in the United States throughout October 2018. It’s going to be a busy month for streamers with a slew of new movies, series, documentaries, and stand-up specials.

We’ll start off with the highlights of the new releases then move onto the complete list of new titles added by Netflix.

October 2018 New Release Highlights

New Horror Highlights

As it’s the month of Halloween, you can expect a bunch of great new horror titles to land throughout the month. We’ve gone through the list of horror movies on the way in more depth in our preview.

Our first top horror pick of the month is the upcoming Sabrina series that looks to continue on the great success of The CW at successfully adapting Archie comics for a modern audience. The new series looks dark and utterly brilliant. Sticking with Netflix Originals, Mike Flanagan will be bringing his new series The Haunting of Hill House to the service on October 12th.

Finally, we end with possibly one of the most influential Jack Nicholson movies of all time in the 1980 must-watch classic, The Shining.

New Movies

Most of the best movies coming out next month are horrors and we’ll start with the Blade movies which we weren’t too sure whether to count as horror or not. The action vampire series stars Wesley Snipes who battles the vampires using an assortment of weapons and witty quips.

Netflix retains its crown at being the home of Adam Sandler with a selection of his back catalogue joining on October 1st including Billy Madison and Anger Managment. Plus we’re going to see Monty Python’s fabulous Life of Brian join Netflix in October too.

New TV Series

The list of new TV series from providers that aren’t Netflix is relatively small this month possibly because of how busy September was and the fact that the fall TV schedule has now switched again. Never-the-less fans of Sofia The First and Gotham will have their long waits ended as both series are getting the latest series added.

We’re also getting the second season of Great News added to Netflix just months after the first dropped. We’ve still got our money on Netflix picking this show up for a third season so get watching.

New Netflix Originals

As is the case with most months now, Netflix Originals dwarf the offerings from third parties as Netflix places a special emphasis on them. There’s a lot to go through but we’re going to pick out three that should be on everyone’s lists.

First up is the third season of undoubtedly the best of the Marvel shows on Netflix, Daredevil. Matt Murdoch is back facing his original enemy as Wilson Fisk now out of prison causing hell for the residents of Hell’s Kitchen. We’re also finally getting a proper new season of the anime series The Seven Deadly Sins and also getting the second season of the crass animated hit, Big Mouth.

As always, this by no means represents the full list of titles that are going to be on Netflix. The best way to keep up with new releases is by keeping an eye on our What’s New on Netflix sections where we update every day with the new releases.
