the forty year old version new on netflix october 9th

It’s almost a Netflix Original lockout today with only one of the seven new additions being a licensed piece of content. Let’s run through the full list of what’s new on Netflix for October 9th and see what’s dominating the US top 10 movies and TV series.

This may be the final daily roundup of the week as we’re not currently expecting any new releases over the weekend but we’ll keep our what’s new on Netflix hub updated should anything arise.

Let’s take a look at a couple of the new highlights for today:

The Forty-Year-Old Version (2020)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director: Radha Blank
Cast: Welker White, Reed Birney, Peggy J. Scott, Peter Kim
Writer: Radha Blank
Runtime: 129 min

Picked up from the Sundance Film Festival is this comedy directed, written by, and starring Radha Blank.

Here’s what you can expect:

“Desperate for a breakthrough as she nears the big 4-0, struggling New York City playwright Radha finds inspiration by reinventing herself as a rapper.”


The Haunting of Bly Manor (Season 1)

Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Cast: Andrew Neil McKenzie, Victoria Pedretti
Writer: Mike Flanagan

Mike Flanagan is back with his second serialized entry in The Haunting universe where, this time, we visit Bly Manor.

By most accounts, this doesn’t quite live up the to expectations set by the first series (released two years ago) but is probably Netflix’s best new Halloween title added for 2020.


If you missed yesterday’s roundup you missed a few great titles including the final season of The 100.
