We've all been spending far more time watching Netflix than we perhaps usually would in a world where a pandemic hasn't rendered many of us with the inability to live a normal life, and since March, we've all certainly become more accustomed to that fact. During this time, the streaming service has upped its game ten-fold with the number of new shows and films that are becoming available to watch each month. With that, we have been following along with upcoming releases to bring you: Everything coming to Netflix in October that we are excited for, below.
