Every new title coming to Netflix Canada in September

The Politician

Super-producer Ryan Murphy has tried his hand at thrillers (American Horror Story), melodrama (Feud) and musicals (Glee). Next up: political satire. As the American election cycle ramps up, he’s offering a funhouse mirror of political campaign chaos. Ben Platt of Dear Evan Hanson fame stars as a keener senior who wants to be student body president (and eventually, president of the United States). In a ploy for sympathy votes, he picks a cancer-stricken student (Zoey Deutch) as his running mate. What follows is a frenzied circus of scandalous rumours, including an assassination threat (!?). The starry cast also includes Gwyneth Paltrow as Platt’s mom, plus American Horror Story MVP Jessica Lange. September 27.

Between Two Ferns: The Movie

In his sporadic web series Between Two Ferns, Zach Galifianakis gives the formulaic talk show a cringe-comedy makeover. (He once asked Obama how it feels to be the last black president, and he also told Jon Stewart he comes across as a “big bear of a dipshit.”) Netflix has upgraded the standard three-minute episodes to a feature-length film. It’s an origin story for the show, in which Will Ferrell takes a hapless public-access TV host (Galifianakis, of course) and turns him into a viral sensation. As with the original series, expect plenty of celebrity cameos, including David Letterman and Jon Hamm. September 20.


In 2015, ProPublica published a viral story about an 18-year-old girl who claimed a masked man broke into her apartment, held her at knifepoint and raped her. The problem: investigators didn’t believe her. Under pressure from police, she confessed to making the whole thing up and was charged with filing a false report—even though her story was true. The Pulitzer-winning story forms the basis for Netflix’s new true-crime series, focused on how the criminal justice system often fails assault survivors. September 13. 

The I-Land

Lord of the Flies meets Black Mirror meets Lost in this mind-bending sci-fi thriller series produced by and starring Kate Bosworth. When 10 people wake up on an remote island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they have to work together to figure out how to get home—wherever home may be. And of course, the island has its own sinister secrets. September 12. 

The Good Place, season 3

NBC is preparing to kick off the final season of its beloved afterlife comedy this fall, making now the ideal time to catch up on the twisty, turny season three. For those who need a refresher: the Good Place is a heavenly afterworld overseen by mastermind Michael (Ted Danson). When Eleanor (Kristen Bell)—a miserable and selfish person in her previous life—wakes up in the Good Place, she assumes it’s too good to be true. (It is.) In season three, Eleanor and her fellow delinquents are sent back to Earth, with no memories of the afterlife, to see if they can be redeemed. September 27.
