Netflix season is upon us. What makes October the start of Netflix season, you might be wondering? Sweater weather, pumpkin spice things, cozy blankets, and all the streaming content you could ever need. As expected, Netflix is bringing on a long list of original films, documentaries, and series, along with several older movies that are are worth rewatching.


Of course, October isn't October without spooky content. You'll get plenty of that next month, including a reboot of the '90s Nickelodeon classic show ​Are You Afraid of The Dark?​ And speaking of '90s reboots, the second season of ​The Baby-Sitters Club​ hits Netflix on Oct. 11. And if you just can't get enough '90s content, you'll be able to watch every single episode of ​Seinfeld​ next month. Netflix for the win!



The creepy and super popular series ​You​ will be back for its third season, and Netflix is finally getting the 11th and final season of ​Shameless.​ If you have preschoolers, they'll be thrilled to know that new seasons of ​CoComelon​, ​Gabby's Dollhouse, Thomas and Friend​s, and ​Mighty Express​ will coming next month, which means you won't have to keep watching the same damn episodes over and over forever.
