Best New Series on Netflix in September 2021

Money Heist Part 5: Volume 1

This is it, the big one is back. The long-awaited return of  La Casa de Papel sees the gang locked in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours. Lisbon is safe but The Professor has been captured by Inspector Sierra, putting the fate of the entire team under threat. Queue shoot-outs, creepy masks and a lot of ‘what just happened?’ from viewers. Can’t wait.

Release Date: 3 September 2021

Lucifer: The Final Season

To be honest, we were a bit late to the Lucifer party. Something about the whole ‘Satan helps a detective solve murders’ premise just seemed a little cheesy, but we put our pride aside and slowly the charm of Tom Ellis took over. It’s definitely not the best show on Netflix, but it is entertaining and over the years, it’s certainly got better. In the final season, we get the conclusion we’ve been asking for, but questions are still up in the air. Chloe prepares to give up detective work, Amenadiel joins the LAPD and Lucifer scored the promotion, but does he really want the job? Stupid, but sexy.

Release Date: 10 September 2021

Sex Education: Season 3

One of the most cringe-inducing shows on Netflix returns in September. For the third season of Sex Education, sh*t gets even more awkward when word of the “sex school” gets around. A new head teacher tries to control a rambunctious student body and Otis attempts to hide his secret hookup.

Release Date: 17 September 2021

Too hot to handle latino

Too Hot to Handle Latino

Hot people on a beach attempt to not sleep with each other – Latin America edition. Sure, the premise is weak and the conversations are brain-numbing, but yeah…it’s pretty good.

Release Date: 15 September 2021

Q-Force

Look, we’re still not really sure what to make of this one, but it certainly got our attention. The new animated series Q-Force is a bizarre, spy comedy that tells the story of Agent Steve Maryweather, the one-time Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency, who comes out as gay. Unable to fire him, the AIA sends him off into obscurity, where he assembles a LGBTQ+ squad of misfits. Truth be told, the series is already copping some major criticism for its dull gags about queerness, but we’ll have to wait and see if there’s more to Q-Force than meets the eye.

Release Date: 2 September 2021

Midnight Mass

If you loved The Haunting of Hill House, you’re in for an absolute treat. The makers of the super-scary Netflix horror series are back with a new show that promises to be almost exactly the same. This time around, a community experiences miraculous events and frightening omens after a mysterious priest’s arrival. Jump-scares a plenty.

Release Date: 24 September 2021

Luna Park

Not to be confused with the joyous big mouth that Sydneysiders perpetually forget exists, Luna Park is a wild ride through 1960s Rome. Specifically, an encounter between a girl raised in a carnival and a girl from a rich home leads to intrigue, secrets and new and unexpected loves.

Release Date: 30 September 2021

The Chestnut Man

There’s something about Danish thrillers. We’re not sure if it’s the scenery, the accent or just the generally creepiness that the overly clean and polite people of Denmark exhibit, but they make some seriously twisted cinema. The Chestnut Man is the latest example. When a young woman is found brutally murdered in a Copenhagen playground with a small doll made of chestnuts hanging above her, authorities race to figure out the meaning. Think True Detective but with bicycles.

Release Date: 29 September 2021

Best New Movies on Netflix in September 2021

Worth

It’s the classic trio of Michael Keaton, Stanley Tucci and 9/11. Worth is not for the faint of heart. This heavy drama follows Washington, D.C., lawyer Kenneth Feinberg as he battles cynicism, bureaucracy and politics to help the victims of the historic September 11 terror attack.

Release Date: 3 September 2021

Kate

Landing somewhere between Crank and John Wick, Kate is a straight-up action-filled, nonsensical farce that we’re totally down for. Slipped a fatal poison on her final job, a ruthless assassin working in Tokyo has less than 24 hours to find out who ordered the hit and exact revenge.

Release Date: 10 September 2021

The Starling

Fresh off that insane five-year run that saw her cast in every comedy Hollywood made, Melissa McCarthy returns in The Starling, a new flick that sees him battling man’s longest-serving foe, the bird. Look, this one sounds silly, but if you’re stuck at mum and dad’s looking for a non-threatening flick, this is probably it. A woman adjusting to life after a loss contends with a feisty bird that’s taken over her garden — and a husband who’s struggling to find a way forward. Juicy.

Release Date: 24 September 2021

No one gets out alive

No One Gets Out Alive

If you’re keen on sh*tting your pants this month, Netflix also has you covered with No One Gets Out Alive. The classic haunted house story comes back to life, when an immigrant in search of the American dream is forced to take a room in a boarding house. It isn’t long before she finds herself in a nightmare she can’t escape.

Release Date: 29 September 2021

Best Documentaries on Netflix in September 2021

Schumacher

Adored by fans, hated by rivals, respected by everyone, Michael Schumacher was must-watch racing television from the moment he strapped into the suit. This no-holds-barred documentary that dives into the iconic F1 driver’s incredible life, on and off the track, provides never-before-seen interviews and insights from those closest to him. Uplifting, heart-breaking and inspiring, Schumacher is the doco we’ve all been waiting nfor.

Release Date: 15 September 2021

Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror

The second 9/11 feature to hit Netflix in September, Turning Point is an unflinching series that documents the 9/11 terrorist attacks, from al-Qaida’s roots in the 1980s to America’s forceful response, both at home and abroad.

Release Date: 1 September 2021

Blood Brothers: Malcolm X and Muhammad Ali

Two men, locked in a battle for morality, bound by religion and with everything to lose. It sounds like a Hollywood drama, but it’s the real-life story of The Greatest Muhammad Ali and leader of the Black Islamic movement Malcolm X. The two men shared a common bond, but a powerful feud threatened to put years of work in jeopardy. One of the great untold stories of modern history.

Release Date: 9 September 2021

Monsters Inside: The 24 Faces of Billy Milligan

This one is heavy and incredibly unsettling. In the late 1970s, an accused serial rapist claims multiple personalities control his behaviour, setting off a legal odyssey that captivates America.

Release Date: 24 September 2021
