Everything coming to and leaving Netflix in October 2020

Not sure what to watch on Netflix next month? Here’s the complete list of arrivals and exits to get your schedule in order.

We’re close to the end of the month. That means we start looking at everything coming to streaming services to see what’s new to watch. Netflix is packed with some excellent content in October 2020.

It’s not all about the scary movies and shows, either. Sure, there are a few for the scariest month of the year, but there’s a good selection of drama, comedy, and everything in between.

Scary shows and movies to watch

For those who do want something scary, Netflix most definitely has you covered. The Haunting of Bly Manor is available on the streamer on Oct. 9.

This is the follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House. It’s the same creative team and some of the same actors, but a different story. This time it’s based on the novel The Turn of the Screw and is set in the 1980s.

For those who love supernatural horror, Evil Season 1 is dropping on the streaming service on Oct. 1. This CBS drama will be on the streamer for a year in the hope of it finding the audience it deserves. A forensic psychologist is recruited by the Catholic Church to see whether a serial killer is really a psychopath or if he’s been possessed.

Need something “scary” for the kids? Super Monsters has a new special that they’re definitely not going to want to miss. This is just a cute series that you’ll definitely want to check out with the kids. You can put it on for them and get on with the housework! The special is available on Oct. 9.

Something different for non-horror fans

Don’t want to watch horror on Netflix this month? That’s okay! There’s plenty to check out.

Like with Evil, CBS wants to give The Unicorn a better chance of finding the audience it deserves. This comedy is available to stream in full on Netflix for a year as of Oct. 1.

If you’re looking for a new Netflix Original, Emily in Paris is available to stream. The series follows an American who is hired by a French firm to give an American perspective to marketing.

For those who prefer period dramas, The Queen’s Gambit is something worth turning your attention to. Chess prodigy Beth Harmon is on a quest to become the greatest chess player the world has ever seen. There are a couple of things standing in her way: she’s an orphan in the Cold War.
