10 Geeky Movies and TV Shows Coming to Netflix in September
< >
September is Netflix's sweet spot (since all the networks want you to catch up on shows before the next season), so there are a ton of exciting titles coming to the streaming service next month. As per usual, the movies are less exciting, but the TV runs the gamut from standbys like The Walking Dead to new additions to the Flarrowverse to Marvel/Netflix's latest dark, gritty offering. Here are ten sci-fi/fantasy titles coming to Netflix in the next month:

The Amityville Horror - September 1

This remake of the classic "based on a true story" ghost story was completely derivative and unnecessary, but it's also a perfectly competent horror movie, with some flashes of that Ryan Reynolds wit as a bonus.

Practical Magic - September 1

You would think you couldn't go wrong with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman, but this fantasy rom-com—centering on two witches whose family curse kills the men they love—is pretty terrible. The rest of the entries on this list are better, I promise.

Galavant seasons 1-2 - September 7

Galavant had great reviews through its first two seasons, but a medieval musical fantasy comedy is sort of a hard sell for audiences, and it was canceled before its third season. But if you missed the boat on this charming show, you can watch the whole thing on Netflix starting next month.

Supergirl season 1 - September 10

Supergirl was slightly uneven at times, but was still a great addition to the DCTV oeuvre, especially when Barry Allen rolled into town. And now that it's moving to The CW to be a proper part of the Flarrowverse, DC fans will want to binge the first season so you can enjoy crossovers galore in season two. 

The Walking Dead season 6 - September 15

As we all know, The Walking Dead is about to kill off at least one major character in the season premiere, so if you want to torture yourself get yourself up to speed, you have until October 23 to enjoy the last scenes with [SPOILER].

Penny Dreadful season 3 - September 17

This "historical" fantasy was often flawed, but enjoyably insane, and worth watching for Eva Green's performance alone. If you've been watching the first two seasons, you won't want to miss the crazy conclusion.

Gotham season 2 - September 19

In its first season, Gotham seemed to be trying (and failing) to be a "serious" Batman show. But in its second season, it embraced the crazy, and was all the better for it. 

Zootopia - September 20

After that huge deal between Netflix and Disney, we might have expected more than this, but we'll take Zootopia any day of the week. Funny, well-acted, and unexpectedly poignant, this was one of the best—and most socially conscious—movies of the year.

The Imitation Game - September 28

The Imitation Game was an impeccably made, scientifically-minded thriller, with pitch-perfect performances from Benedict Cumberbatch and Keira Knightley. It was nominated for eight Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Supporting Actress.

Luke Cage season 1 - September 30

This is what we've all been waiting for. After a memorable turn in Jessica Jones, Luke Cage is continuing the Defenders series with his own show, which already looks epic. We can't wait to see the Unbreakable Man in action, especially set to an amazing, Harlem-inspired soundtrack.
