Here’s what’s coming and going on Netflix in October 2019

It’s pumpkin season, baby. But also, it’s streaming season—especially if you’re a Netflix subscriber. The streaming giant welcomes a massive slate of original programming in October, from comedy to drama to documentary and everything in between. Selena Gomez serves as executive producer on Living Undocumented, which chronicles the experiences of eight undocumented immigrant families risking their lives to realize their American dream. Big Mouth returns for a third season of exploring human sexuality, Adderall addiction, and dick pics. And horror fans will get their fill with the Netflix & Chills lineup, comprising five original horror movies including an adaptation of Stephen King’s In the Tall Grass.

Check out the full listings below to see what’s new on Netflix in September.

What’s new on Netflix: Editor’s picks

Unbelievable

Based on the harrowing true crimes of a serial rapist, Unbelievable charts the long, hard road to bring the culprit to justice. Across two timelines, Unbelievable tells the story of Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever), a woman living in Washington State who, in 2008, was accused of falsely reporting a rape to police. The other timeline is set in Colorado in 2011 and follows detectives Karen Duvall (Merritt Weaver) and Grace Rasmussen (Toni Collette) as they investigate a series of unsolved rapes across the state. The series juxtaposes Marie’s experiences with local police and emotional trauma with the slow-moving investigation before the two stories dovetail. Unbelievable can be difficult to watch at times (the show comes with a trigger warning for sexual violence), but it is essential viewing. —Eddie Strait

Los Tigres del Norte at Folsom Prison

Legendary norteño musicians Los Tigres del Norte make a thoughtful, symbolic statement with this concert film. By purposefully choosing Folsom State Prison, where Johnny Cash recorded his legendary album At Folsom Prison, Los Tigres del Norte assert themselves as troubadours of America’s new working class, one largely consisting of people of color. Concert footage spliced with talking-head material from the inmates—many of whom love the band—makes for a forceful argument that Los Tigres del Norte are, in many ways, the heirs to Cash’s country music mantle and that Latinx stories are American working-class stories. —Brenden Gallagher

American Factory

Years after a GM plant closed in Moraine, Ohio, a Chinese billionaire opened a new plant and hired American and Chinese workers to operate it. With the wide-ranging amount of access, American Factory reveals employees who’ve become closer, the American workers’ efforts to unionize, and just how far the board will go to stop those efforts as two countries’ work values clash. —Michelle Jaworski
