New Releases on Netflix: September 27th, 2019

The Politician season 1 now on Netflix – Picture: Netflix

Welcome to your Friday roundup of what’s new on Netflix. It’s a busy day for new Netflix Originals with a wide variety of new titles added for all ages. 

We’ve only got two main English highlights for you today but we’ll be picking out some of the other highlights over the weekend.

The Politician (Season 1) Netflix Original 

Genre: Comedy
Cast: Gwyneth Paltrow, Barbra Streisand, Ben Platt
Language: English

The big new Netflix Original title added today is The Politician which represents Ryan Murphy’s first full-fledged outing on the service with plenty more on the horizon.

Although we don’t think this title is going to have the broad appeal of some of his other works, it’s certainly one to watch if you loved Glee for example.

The new series sees Payton Hobart hoping to run for President of the United States but has to start with running for his high school.


In the Shadow of the Moon (2019) Netflix Original 

Genre: Thriller
Director: Jim Mickle
Cast: Michael C. Hall, Boyd Holbrook, Bokeem Woodbine, Cleopatra Coleman
Runtime: 115 mins

Although dubbed as a thriller, this movie actually finds itself sitting well in the sci-fi category too. It’s Netflix’s big September movie that sees Michael C. Hall (Dexter) and Boyd Holbrook (Narcos) team up to go after a killer.

That’s all we want to give away at this point as the movie is well worth experiencing for yourself. Set aside plenty of time though, as it clocks in at nearly 2 hours long.
