Netflix Originals Soar in September!

If Netflix originals are your thing, then September is your month.

I do enjoy Netflix. It’s home to my all-time favorite original series, Stranger Things. Unfortunately, I don’t have any news to share about that particular Netflix original series this week. What I DO have is a complete listing of everything coming to Netflix in September. As I mentioned above, it chock-filled with a bunch of great stuff that should appeal to a wide variety of streaming tastes.

Netflix in September: an Overview

The ninth month of the year is a strong one for Netflix originals. By my count, there are 24 new series popping throughout September. There are also 12 series returning with other seasons. There are also a handful of documentaries and double-digit Netflix original movies. Within all of that programming, subscribers will find a variety of cultures and languages represented. American viewers come from all backgrounds, making this diversity of programming one of Netflix’s strengths.

Buckler’s Bests for September

If you’ve read this series before, you know I highlight the shows that interest me. This week, I’m listing my top three, but this is by no means final. I plan to watch almost all of the original series, movies, and documentaries coming to Netflix next month. These pics are just my “top three” based on the most interesting trailers. Let’s jump into my top picks for Netflix originals!

Freaks – You’re One of Us

On the surface, this is a German-language movie about a fry cook who discovers she has superpowers. After watching the Freaks – You’re One of Us trailer, this Netflix original looks more interesting than the average superhero fare. The self-aware jokes about the superhero genre seem a bit like Deadpool. That said, don’t we superhero fans need a break from the Marvel and DC universes? This Netflix original pops on September 2nd. Until then, check out the trailer:

My Octopus Teacher

Full disclosure: I’ve always been fascinated with the octopus. Apparently, I’m not alone. My Octopus Teacher is a Netflix original documentary that airs on September 7th. It’s about a man who gets to know an octopus through repeated daily ocean dives. As the title implies, these strange and unique animals aren’t the only thing he learns about. Check out the My Octopus Teacher trailer:

Enola Holmes

Enola Holmes is another Netflix original movie that has definitely caught my attention. It has all the makings of a winner. Consider this: it stars Millie Bobbie Brown of Stranger Things fame and Helena Bonham Carter. Oh, and Enola is the younger sister of none other than Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes, who figure in this movie. The movie is equal measures mystery, comedy, and a heartwarming romp through Victorian-Era England. Count me in!
