Netflix USA: What's New in September 2018

Holy crap, it's September already. In the US, they refer to it as "the Fall Season", otherwise known as when new TV seasons start. Not that Netflix takes too much notice of traditional broadcast schedules and such - they'd rather disrupt it than anything else - but it's still an important time for TV shows, and more specifically, for eyeballs on those TV shows.

For Australians (or non USA residents really) that want to access the US version of Netflix, which has if not more content, then at least different content than the local version, the best way to do that is described in our updated guide here. Sure, there are other ways, cheaper ways, but none more reliable than what we have tested (and what we are actually using for ourselves).

And while Netflix's library is out of sync geographically, there are still a lot of the same additions regardless of where you are, especially when it comes to Netflix originals. And so this article focuses on content that you won't get in Australia or hasn't been covered by our 'Netflix Australia: What's New in September' article, and so a quick glance of that article is recommended as well.


We're pretty lucky in Australia in that we get a healthy dose of Netflix TV goodness in our local version, and the next two shows are available in Australia, but I've not taken the time in the Australian version of this article to talk about them, so I'll do so here.

Still grab from Maniac

The limited series 'Maniac' stars big names Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, but don't expect this series to be a 'Superbad' sequel. 'Maniac' comes from the creative mind of Cary Fukunaga, better known as the creative soul of another hit TV show, 'True Detectives'. In typical Netflix fashion, not much is known about this series (or even its existence up until a few weeks ago), other than Stone and Hill taking part in some kind of experiment that goes either horribly wrong or horribly right. Crazy shit ensues.

The other Netflix Original TV series is 'A Taiwanese Tale of Two Cities' (September 3), not Netflix's first mandarin/Taiwanese series, but perhaps its most ambitious yet to attract non Asian viewers to watch what is a distinctly Asian drama series.

Other TV highlights includes the latest full season of 'American Horror Story', dubbed 'Cult' (September 18) - the new season, 'Apocalypse', starts in September as well (not on Netflix, but will be here this time next year), so it's a great time to refresh, or to watch for the first time, the latest season in this freaky, and superbly done, series. Australian fans can also catch season 8 of 'The Walking Dead' (September 23) without having to do so via Foxtel.

Movies, Documentaries:

There are some pretty big movies coming to the US version of Netflix, many of which won't be in our local version until much much later (or never, in some cases).

You can't really go past the box office juggernaut that is 'Black Panther' (September 4) - if you've not been keeping up with the Marvel movies (and to be fair, it's a fairly big commitment), then this very recent entry has been very well received. It's probably just "standalone" enough for you to enjoy it, much like most of the "first" spin-off movies, but if you end up loving it, you know you'll have to watch everything else. That's how Disney gets you though.

Other major Disney releases this month include 'A Wrinkle in Time' (September 25) 'Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl' (September 25) - nearly the last bunch before Netflix's Disney deal expires.

Promo graphics for Next Gen

Netflix is getting into the original animated film business with 'Next Gen' (September 7), which looks like to be a cross between Wall-E and Big Hero Six. Again, it's a Netflix surprise announcement so not much is known about it, which is just how Netflix likes it.

Other highlights includes classics like 'The Breakfast Club', 'Groundhog Day' and 'Unforgiven' (September 1), all coming September 1.

Leaving Netflix:

As usual, some pretty good content is leaving Netflix in September too. These include the movies '13 Going on 30' (known here as 'Suddenly 30', leaving September 1), 'Casino' (September 1), 'The Dark Knight' (September 1), and 'The Imitation Game' (September 28).

TV shows leaving Netflix includes Rules of Engagement: Seasons 1 - 7 (September 11).


So that's all the comings and leavings for September on the US version of Netflix. Plenty of different stuff to our local version to make getting a VPN a worthwhile investment!
