Hubie Halloween

After a foray into drama with the anxiety bomb that was Uncut Gems, Adam Sandler is back on the slapstick train with this horror comedy, about a devoted community volunteer who has to figure out why people are disappearing in his town on Halloween. The all-star cast includes Kevin James, Julie Bowen, Maya Rudolph and Ray Liotta as the skeptical townsfolk. Sandler’s last Netflix film, Murder Mystery, was the platform’s most-streamed title in 2019; this film marks the end of Sandler’s original 2014 deal, but Sandler-heads need not worry: he’s already signed on to produce four more films. October 7


The Haunting of Bly Manor

If the Bent-Neck Lady in The Haunting of Hill House left you sleepless in the best possible way, Netflix is coming through with another ghostly nightmare featuring some of the original cast. Loosely based on Henry James’s The Turn of the Screw, this one’s set at a stately country manor in 1980s England, where a nanny has died under mysterious circumstances. When her replacement arrives at Bly manor to care for a pair of orphaned siblings, she’s terrorized by paranormal figures. October 9


The Trial of the Chicago 7

Aaron Sorkin’s first project since 2017’s Molly’s Game is a characteristically talky legal drama dramatizing the trial that followed a violent clash between the police and protestors at the 1968 Democratic National Convention in Chicago. It stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Panther Party co-founder Bobby Seale, alongside Eddie Redmayne and Jeremy Strong (hi, Kendall Roy!) as fellow defendants who are charged with inciting a riot. October 16


The Queen’s Gambit

Adapted from Walter Tevis’s novel of the same name, this drama series is a gritty, drug-addled take on the shady underworld of...chess. It chronicles the psychological deterioration of Beth, an orphaned chess prodigy played by Anya Taylor-Joy, who takes to popping pills and alcoholism to combat her debilitating psychosis. October 23



Grand Army

This teen drama series loosely based on Slut: The Play by Katie Cappiello spiritually follows in the footsteps of shows like Euphoria hoping to answer the question: what does it feel like to be a teen in the U.S. right now? From kneeling during the national anthem at a basketball game to rampant bullying and sexual assaults to a possible school shooting, the series follows five students from a variety of backgrounds at Grand Army High School in Brooklyn who have experienced it all. October 16



Downton Abbey meets The Invisible Man in this thriller based on Daphne Du Maurier’s gothic novel of the same name. When a young woman falls in love with a ridiculously wealthy widower—played by Armie Hammer, with a smarmy British accent—she moves to his drafty English manor, does battle with a sinister housekeeper, and worries she can’t live up to the memories of her husband’s dead wife, Rebecca. Like the heroine, director Ben Wheatley has big shoes to fill: Alfred Hitchcock previously adapted the novel in 1940, earning the Academy Award for Best Picture. October 21


Emily in Paris

For those who’ve binged their way through Sex and the City more times then they care to admit, this new series from SATC creator Darren Star is a must-see. Lily Collins plays a Chicago marketing exec, who lands her dream job in Paris but finds herself culturally lost in translation with her European coworkers. The series follows her bold outfits and bold opinions as she navigates her new workplace and the Parisian dating scene. October 2


The Forty Year Old Version

This black-and-white comedy film follows a playwright whose career has fizzled by her 40th birthday. Down on her luck, she reinvents herself and finds success as a hip-hop artist rapping from the point of view of a 40-year-old woman. The semi-autobiographical film, produced by Lena Waithe, stars newcomer writer and director Radha Blank, who won a directing award when the show premiered at Sundance earlier this year. October 9
