Netflix Australia: What's New in October 2018

Poster for 22 July
Sean Fang Sun, 30/09/2018 - 21:00

We're counting down to the final few months of the year, and it looks like Netflix has really ramped things up for October, with lots of fantastic TV and interesting movies being added.


Originals, episodic shows and fantastic documentries are all available in October on Netflix.

The original shows to look out for, many of which are returning for the first time for their second seasons, include the superb music documentary series 'Hip-Hop Evolution: Season 2' (19/10/2018); a new third season of superhero fun in Marvel's Daredevil (19/10/2018); video game meets animation again in 'Castlevania: Season 2' (26/10/2018); and fun for the little ones (and the not so little ones) in 'The Boss Baby: Back in Business: Season 2' (12/10/2018), are only some of the highlights. 'Chilling Adventures of Sabrina' (26/10/2018) might sound familiar and that's because it is - it is a reboot of the classic teen comedy hit 'Sabrina the Teenage Witch', but it's anything but a comedy now, taking a dark turn much like what 'Riverdale' (a new season also starting in October) did for Archie comics.

They're not originals, but 'Lucifer: Season 3' (3/10/2018) and 'Arrow: Season 6' (14/10/2018) will be welcomed additions especially here in Australia, where we really don't have reliable free-to-air access to a lot of these types of shows, unless you have Foxtel and whatnot.

If you don't mind having to wait week by week for these shows, then the terrifically funny and often unpredictable 'The Good Place: Season 3' starts streaming October 5, while season 3 of 'Riverdale' starts streaming October 11.

Promo graphics for Making a Murderer

And Netflix really pulled a surprise on us here by only recently announcing 'Making a Murderer: Part 2' (19/10/2018), a sequel to the mesmerising true crime documentary that will no doubt update us on the recent progress in the Steven Avery case and muddy the waters even more.

Movies, Documentaries:

Lots of fantastic movies coming in October on Netflix.

The streaming platform has been accused in recent times of turning a blind eye towards movies and focusing too much on TV, but English director Paul Greengrass's '22 July' is an ambitious and perhaps controversial addition. It will no doubt be compared to Greengrass's excellent 'United 93', and with the veteran 'Bourne' director being a skilled operator, '22 July' should make a riveting film. You can start streaming it on October 10.

Promotional still for Arrival

There are also a couple of new-ish releases for those that like new releases, including the funny and sometimes insightful 'The Intern' (25/10/2018); a real sci-fi film, possibly masterpiece, in 'Arrival' (22/10/2018); and Liam Neeson shows off more of his skills in 'The Commuter' (25/10/2018).

The next bunch of highlights are for movies that are slightly older, but still worthy of a watch/re-watch, and these include 'Snow White and the Huntsman' (17/10/2018), 'The Hangover: Part II' (11/10/2018), 'American Gangster' (17/10/2018) and 'Seven Psychopaths' (20/10/2018).

There's always room for classics, and there are a few joining Netflix in October, including the stylish 'Casino' (5/10/2018); the funny (but not as funny as the TV series) 'Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie' (5/10/2018); and the oft maligned 'Striptease' (11/10/2018).


So a big list of goodies get through in October, get your binge on!
