New to Netflix UK this September

Posted on August 5th, 2016 by

Netflix, every student’s best friend and biggest distraction, just dropped no fewer than 48 new films and TV serials on the 1st of September… just in time to procrastinate from this year’s uni reading list! With all of these fresh titles to choose from, and more arriving throughout the month, we thought we’d break down for you the best of what’s new to Netflix UK this September.

Narcos, Season 2

Isn’t it ironic that TV shows about drug dealers are just so addictive? First it was Breaking Bad, and now Neflix’s original series Narcos is back for its second series. If you like your drama serials with the added thrill of a “based on a true story” title card, then this show is definitely for you. Check out the trailer for the new series (which contains some strong language – obviously!).

Luke Cage

Is it just us, or is the Marvel Cinematic Universe expanding at pretty much the same rate as the actual universe, i.e. about 68km per second?! Okay, maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but who cares? We’re too excited about the release of Luke Cage, the new spin-off from the much loved Jessica Jones Marvel series from 2015. Neflix are making us wait just a tiny bit longer for this one, look out for its release on September 30th!

ABC Studios / Marvel Television


If you’re more into documentaries or independent film, there are loads of new uploads to suit your tastes! From Netflix itself comes a new documentary short The White Helmets about the volunteer rescue workers in Aleppo, Syria. Audrie and Daisy makes its video-on-demand debut after its world premiere at Sundance Film Festival, and that-film-they-shot-on-an-iPhone finally reaches Netflix UK, the brilliant Tangerine.

Magnolia Pictures

We’ll Miss You..

Now, we’ve all had one of those awkward movie-night debates where you swear on your life that a certain film or TV show is on Netflix only to discover, after a stressful session of searching, that it’s just nowhere to be found. For, regrettably, Netflix can’t keep all of its content forever, and when shiny new options are given unto us, some of our old favourites are being given their notice in a dodgy backroom somewhere at Netflix HQ (that’s how the internet works, right?). This September, a few of the great movies that we must bid farewell to include:

The Magnificent Seven (1960)
No Country for Old Men (2007)
Cloverfield (2008)
Whip It! (2009)
Lilting (2014)

At least we still have Kimmy!!

But we’ll admit that these were the main films of note out of a bunch of TV and movie titles we’d never even heard of. Realistically, as long as Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt stays with us forever, we can’t complain too much.

Did we miss out anything great you’ve just discovered on Netflix?
