September 2015 New Netflix US Releases

Kasey Moore What's on Netflix Avatar


September is just around the corner, and unfortunately, the wait for next month’s new releases has been agonizing, but they’re here now, and boy, oh boy, is it a good month. The delay was most likely caused by yesterday’s news that came from Netflix about the lapse of the contract between Netflix and Epix, which supplies Netflix with a lot of the movies you see on Netflix.

Looking for just the Netflix Originals coming in September?


TV Series

The Walking Dead - Season 5 streaming from September 27th

The Walking Dead – Season 5 streaming from September 27th

First up and most importantly most would argue, is The Walking Dead. With its spinoff and season 6 just around the corner now is the perfect time to go ahead and catch up watching season 5 on Netflix. Based on a comic book of the same name it follows survivors after a zombie apocalypse infects America. It’s probably the best realised zombie title ever created and is well worth your time.

The Blacklist also gets its second series after Netflix paid through the nose last year to get exclusive rights on it and is obviously paying off for them. Former agent turned rogue Red returns to help the FBI by locking up some of the world’s most wanted criminals and only liases with a young agent called Elizabeth Keen. It’s suspenseful and one of the best NBC dramas currently running.

Making its debut on Netflix this month is Gotham, the hit show taking us back to when Bruce Wayne was just a young boy and gives us a different kind of Gotham than what we’re used to. It’s a wonderfully realised world with solid character development and is a must watch from all Batman fans.

Rounding out the TV series are the latest seasons of fan favourites including The League, Portlandia and Parenthood.



Philomena (2013) streaming from September 22nd

A fairly weak month for movies when compared to the TV series but some hidden gems never the less. Kicking off with the low-budget comedy Philomena where a woman searching for her long lost son falls for a man who is documenting her search. It’s one of Steve Coogan’s best pieces of work and a major, but welcome, departure from his role as Alan Partridge.

If trilogies are your thing then you’ll probably be excited to see that Rambo will be getting all three instalments on Netflix US from the 1st of the month. Explosions galore you can expect Rambo to fill in that 80’s movie cliche list fairly quickly with Sylvester Stallones swansong movies.
