Here’s Everything New on Netflix in October 2020—and What’s Leaving

5 minute read

Chills and thrills abound in Netflix’s offerings for October, with plenty of spooky content for Halloween. From Netflix’s buzzy adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 gothic novel, Rebecca, which stars Lily James and Armie Hammer, to the family friendly original series The Worst Witch, there’s something to help everyone to get in the spirit of the season.

David Letterman serves up wit and his signature wry humor when he returns for a third season of his Netflix original series My Guest Needs No Introduction on October 21. This season’s collection of in-depth interviews includes conversations with the likes of comedian Dave Chappelle and Robert Downey Jr.

When it comes to documentaries this month, Netflix’s offerings range from BLACKPINK: Light Up the Sky, an in-depth look at the global rise of Korean girl group, to Dick Johnson Is Dead, the bittersweet project from award-winning director Kirsten Johnson, who faces her fear of losing her father to dementia by staging his death (with his very game cooperation) over and over again.

Here’s everything new on Netflix this month—and everything set to leave the streaming platform.
