Best New Movies & Shows on Netflix for September 24th, 2021
Before we get into the full list of what’s new on Netflix (an expanded list can be found on our what’s new on Netflix hub), here are our top 3 highlights for the day:
Midnight Mass (Limited Series)
Genre: Drama, Horror, Mystery
Director: Mike Flanagan
Cast: Kate Siegel, Zach Gilford, Hamish Linklater, Henry Thomas, Kristin Lehman, Samantha Sloyan
Writer: Mike Flanagan
Runtime: 40 min
You’re going to see a lot of people singing the praises of this new Mike Flanagan-led series and rightly so. The prolific horror creator has a big collection of titles on Netflix and this may be his best to date.
The series features some familiar faces from his previous ventures on Netflix and is about a young priest bringing miracles and other less savory things to a remote island community that’s on its last legs.
My Little Pony: A New Generation
Genre: Animation, Adventure, Comedy
Director: Robert Cullen, José Luis Ucha, Mark Fattibene
Cast: James Marsden, Vanessa Hudgens, Jane Krakowski
Writer: Gillian Berrow, Robert Cullen, Tim Sullivan
Runtime: 90 min
Skipping theaters which was originally planned for this movie, this My Little Pony feature-film drops on Netflix exclusively today.
With a captivating voice cast, this one is going to be great for any kids (and any bronies) looking for a weekend watch.
Here’s what you can expect from the new My Little Pony feature:
“Equestria’s divided. But a bright-eyed hero believes Earth Ponies, Pegasi and Unicorns should be pals — and, hoof to heart, she’s determined to prove it.”
The Great British Baking Show (Collection 9 – New Episodes Weekly)
Runtime: 60 min
Awards: 10 wins & 21 nominations total
We’re headed back to the infamous British tent set up in the middle of a field for some more competitive baking. The import series for the UK is a regular favorite and kicks off today for the next 10 weeks.
It’s going to be interesting to see how the new season performs on Netflix as it’s not been doing so hot in the UK. In fact, the season premiere saw the lowest ratings since the show moved from the BBC to Channel 4.
