Here's Everything Coming To UK Netflix In September


As autumn approaches, we'll probably be spending less time in rooftop bars and at the lido, and a little more time tucked up indoors. Thankfully, Netflix is launching its strongest selection of original content in a while this September.

Season two of Spanish thriller Elite debuts this month, as does the premiere of The Politician, a flashy-looking comedy-drama from Ryan Murphy which stars Gwyneth Paltrow and Tony-winning stage actor Ben Platt. We're also super intrigued by Unbelievable, a true crime miniseries based on a harrowing real life story. Toni Collette and Booksmart 's Kaitlyn Dever lead the cast in that one.

Some awesome movies are also arriving this month. If you're in the mood for something heartwarming, the classic rom-com Dirty Dancing delivers every time. If you fancy something super emotional, coming-of-age drama Call Me By Your Name starring the internet's bae, Timmy Chalamet is a must-watch. And when you're craving some laughs, the fourth and final season of The Good Place is debuting at the end of the month, too.

Click through to see the key new titles – and their release dates – on Netflix UK this September.
