If you’re looking for your next binge-watching TV boxset or simply want to see great film, then Netflix has got you covered for the next month. Here’s a list of the highly anticipated TV shows and movies arriving in September 2017.

The original series that you can watch all in one binge-watching sitting:

Narcos: Season 3

In the ten episodes the rules have changed in the aftermath of the bloody hunt for Escobar as the DEA turns its attention to his successors: the Cali Cartel.


Launch date: 1 September

Rick and Morty: Season 3

The adult animated sci-fi sitcom adopts a darker tone throughout the 10 episodes.

Original comedies that’ll you love:

Chelsea: Season 2

Exciting guests, timely topics, global destinations. Chelsea returns with a fresh new format, bringing her bold perspective to a changed world.

Launch date: Streaming every Friday

The weekly drops coming your way:

Star Trek: Discovery: Season 1

The iconic franchise returns with a fresh series, new characters and a new ship. Their mission: Explore new worlds, bring hope to a new generation.

We had this pegged as one of the must-watch feminist TV shows to watch in 2017, and for good reason: this thirteen-part prequel (set roughly a decade before the original Star Trek series), follows Rainsford (Martin-Green), the badass lieutenant commander of the USS Discovery. Once again, the voyage promises to be one of discovery, seeking out new life and new civilisations – but, unlike the original series, Discovery will not give us the captain’s point of view. Instead, we will experience this journey through space from Rainsford’s perspective, as she navigates her role upon the starship, her dynamic relationships with her crew, and her approach to all things alien.

Launch date: 25 September

Shooter: Season 2

Though one battle is over, another one is just beginning for Bob Lee Swagger, who's about to find himself in the middle of another dangerous plot.

Launch date: September 6, 13, 20 (Day after broadcast)

The original films that we can’t wait to see:

First They Killed My Father
