Meryl Streep in THE LAUNDROMAT
Claudette Barius—Netflix
October 1, 2019 6:00 AM EDT

Break out the pumpkin spice lattes and the scary movies. October is here, and Netflix came prepared with films and TV shows to keep you cozy indoors.

As usual, the streaming giant has its own original films and series to premiere. The Laundromat, Stephen Soderbergh’s film starring Meryl Streep, Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas, is based on the Panama Papers scandal. The Netflix-produced drama, which premiered at the Venice Film Festival and hit limited theaters on Sept. 27, is available online Oct. 18.

Dolemite Is My Name, a biopic, features Eddie Murphy as Rudy Ray Moore, a comedian, actor and musician who was considered the godfather of rap music. Dolemite premieres online Oct. 25, following a limited theatrical release.

One highly anticipated release, arriving on Oct. 11, is El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie, which picks up with Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) after the events of that show’s 2013 series finale.

To get ready for Halloween, check out Rattlesnake, a psychological horror movie directed by Zak Hilditch, on Oct. 25. The second season of Netflix’s Insatiable is also airing this month. You can watch the satirical comedy, starring Debbie Ryan, on Oct. 11.

The network is continuing a new experiment with rolling out a show’s episodes week by week, like its counterparts on network television, with Rhythm and Flow, a hip-hop competition. Cardi B, Chance the Rapper and T.I. will host, with new episodes airing Wednesdays, starting Oct. 9. For comedy fans, animated series Big Mouth returns with its third season on Oct. 4, and the fifth season of Schitt’s Creek, Eugene and Dan Levy’s comedy from the CBC, will air on Netflix on Oct. 10.

Here’s everything new coming to Netflix in October 2019.
