What’s new on Netflix this September

September is almost here and back-to-school fever will be in high gear. To accompany you or your kids’ return to the campus, there surely will be fresh sets of new movies and TV shows on your favorite streaming services!

Netflix is adding tons of throwback classics in September that can definitely pick you up in between school work. Don’t forget these beloved Disney classics before the House of Mouse pulls out of Netflix for good in 2019 – “Hercules,” “Mulan,” “Pocahontas” and “Beauty and the Beast.”

For more mature fare, don’t miss out on these other critically acclaimed classics from famous directors – Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction,” Martin Scorsese’s “Gangs of New York,” Ben Affleck’s “Gone Baby Gone,” Darren Aronofsky’s “Requiem for a Dream,” Fernando Meirelles “City of God” and Steven Spielberg’s “Jaws.” (If you’re interested, the less-celebrated sequels of “Jaws,” “Jaws 2,”Jaws 3” and “Jaws: The Revenge” will be available too.)

On the Netflix Originals front, there’s a ton of content coming in September including new episodes of “Fuller House,” “Narcos: Season 3,” “American Vandal,” “Final Fantasy XIV Dad of Light,” “Resurface,” and much, much more.

We’ll also see new seasons of your favorite TV shows such as The Walking Dead, Blacklist, Portlandia and Gotham.

But as usual, some of our favorite movies and shows will be departing Netflix too. Titles leaving us in September include Disney’s “Lilo and Stitch” and “The Emperor’s New Groove,” all seasons of “The Batman,” thrillers “Scream,” “Frailty” and “A Nightmare on Elm Street” and the drama “Hope Floats.” Make sure you catch your favorites while you still can.

Check out some of our other top picks for September’s fresh Netflix content:

The Secret Garden

The 1993 children’s classic flick “The Secret Garden” makes its way to Netflix in September.

Based on the 1911 children’s novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett, the movie tells the story of a British girl who was orphaned by an earthquake in India and returns to England to live at her uncle’s ancestral estate. Here, she discovers a crippled cousin she never knew she had and long lost “secret garden” she’s determined to nurse back to life.

It stars Kate Maberly, Maggie Smith, Hayden Prowse and was directed by Agnieszka Holland.

“The Secret Garden” springs back to life on September 1.

The Squid and the Whale

Nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay, “The Squid and the Whale” is a 2005 “dra-medy” film produced by art movie favorite Wes Anderson.

The movie recalls the story of two Brooklyn boys coping with their parents’ divorce in 1986. It stars Jeff Daniels, Owen Kline, Laura Linney, Jesse Eisenberg, William Baldwin and Anna Paquin with Noah Baumbach as director.

“The Squid and the Whale” reunites with Netflix on September 1.

Dead Poets Society

Anyone who remembers “Dead Poets Society” should know that it’s the perfect movie for back-to-school season.

It stars the late great Robin Williams as the quirky English teacher John Keating, as he teaches his students how to gain insights and emotional vitality through poetry, changing their life perspectives along the way.

It also stars a young Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard and Josh Charles and was directed by Peter Weir.

“Dead Poets Society” will seize the day on September 1.
