Though the weather may be warming up in Australia, our friends across the pond are finding their temperatures dropping and Netflix US is adding new content accordingly. Check out what’s new this month.

Those on the look-out for a new series might like to check out Containment. After a deadly virus breaks out, the large city of Atlanta is quarantined leaving those left inside fighting for their lives. The intensity of confinement will bring out the worst in many and make heroes of others. Starring British actor, David Gyasi (Interstellar), Chris Wood (The Vampire Diaries) and relative newcomer, Christina Marie Moses. From October 21.

Vampire fans should circle their calendars on October 8 with the addition of The Vampire Diaries: Season 7 along with its spin-off, The Originals: Season 3. Season 7 of The Vampire Diaries sees the hugely popular show continue without one of its major stars, Nina Dobrev.

In a series that features not one but TWO actors who were major Hollywood stars in the 1980s, The Grinder: Season 1 is worth a look. Starring Rob Lowe ( Parks and Recreation) and Fred Savage (The Wonder Years), this is the story of Dean Sanderson (Lowe), a man returning to his small hometown after spending eight years in Hollywood. Having played a lawyer on a hit TV show, Dean returns to his hometown with plans to run his father’s law firm – an idea that his brother, Stewart – an actual lawyer – is less than impressed with. Nominated for a Golden Globe and picked up for a second season, The Grinder streams from October 4.

For something a little different, try the documentary, Being George Clooney. Writer/director Paul Mariano explores the world of audio dubbing and those voice artists whose task it is to redub Hollywood films for the international market.

Music documentary, Justin Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids comes to Netflix October 12. Timberlake and The Tennessee Kids (his band and backup dancers) spent two years on the road for their 20/20 Experience tour. This documentary captures their final performances in Las Vegas. If Timberlake’s music doesn’t thrill you, his charisma and stage presence just might. And the documentary is in fine hands with director, Jonathan Demme, best known for Silence of the Lambs and another music doco about band Talking Heads, Stop Making Sense.

Directed by Robert Redford (All is Lost), Quiz Show tells the story of a young lawyer, Richard Goodwin (played by Rob Morrow), who investigates a potentially fixed game show. Charles Van Doren (played by Ralph Fiennes), a big time show winner, is under Goodwin's investigation. The film, released in 1994, garnered much critical acclaim and was nominated for a host of awards that year. Streaming from October 1.

More recently, the film Big Eyes won its lead actress, Amy Adams, a Golden Globe in 2015. Directed by Tim Burton (Alice in Wonderland), this is the story of real life painter, Margaret Keane, whose paintings were hugely successful but whose personal life was made tumultuous by a husband who took credit for her artworks. Streams from October 25.
