12 Sci-Fi/Fantasy Titles Coming to Netflix in October 2015
< >
Every month, we say goodbye to everything expiring on Netflix, but luckily, there's nothing too heartbreaking this month. In the sci-fi and fantasy genres, we're losing the first season of Battlestar spin-off Caprica, Interview with the Vampire, the ridiculous guilty pleasure Clockstoppers, and Twilight (thank the Lord). Even more exciting, we're getting tons of great new geeky titles, especially new seasons of beloved fall TV shows like The Flash, Arrow, iZombie, and more. Here are the whopping 12 notable sci-fi/fantasy titles coming to Netflix next month:

Batman Begins - October 1

The Dark Knight was the best film in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, hands-down, but Batman Begins shouldn't be underrated, as it's a great Batman film on its own, not to mention that it changed the way people look at comic book movies. Netflix is rapidly becoming much more reliable for quality television than a decent roster of movies, and this is the most exciting movie addition in recent memory. (Now if they could just add The Dark Knight...)

The Vampire Diaries Season 6 - October 2

The Vampire Diaries hasn't been on form since season three, but this season had its moments, especially the addition of the tremendously talented Chris Wood as Kai and the tearjerker departure of series lead Nina Dobrev.

The Flash Season 1 - October 6

If you haven't watched The Flash yet, this is the perfect opportunity to binge, as it was by far the best comic book show of the 2014-2015 television season (with the possible spoiler of Daredevil). Relentlessly charming, well-acted, and injected with a healthy dose of fun, The Flash is the lighthearted comic book adaptation we were all hoping for.

iZombie Season 1 - October 6

iZombie still doesn't have a huge audience, but it should, because it's this decade's answer to Veronica Mars, or this century's answer to Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The first season was critically acclaimed, with reviewers praising the witty dialogue and the standout performance by spunky blonde Rose McIver.

American Horror Story: Freak Show - October 6

AHS is always weird, but Freak Show brought it to a whole new level. Toeing the line between sci-fi, fantasy, and a highly disturbed person's wet dream, Freak Show was Ryan Murphy at his craziest.

The Originals Season 2 - October 6

The Vampire Diaries spin-off continues as Elijah and Klaus deal with Esther, who has taken control of Cassie's body, along with their resurrected brothers Finn and Kol.

Arrow Season 3 - October 7

Arrow's third season didn't quite live up to the promise of the first two seasons, but it's still one of the best superhero shows on television. Season three also saw a huge shift into the supernatural with the introduction of the Lazarus Pit, which will become extremely important to the expanding DCTV universe.

Supernatural Season 10 - October 7

Against all odds, Supernatural has mostly kept up its quality over the last decade, and the tenth season features all of the same humor, heart, and Daddy issues, now with Demon Dean in the mix.

Circle - October 16

We don't know exactly why this is classified as sci-fi, but that makes the mysterious plot even more intriguing. This Netflix exclusive follows a group of 50 strangers who need to decide amongst themselves which one of them deserves to live. Sounds uplifting, right?

Marvel's Avengers Assemble Season 2 - October 20

Watch the Avengers face off against Thanos ahead of the new season, to be called Ultron Revolution.

Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered - October 20

Superman tries to get Batman to join the Justice League in a lighthearted LEGO primer for Batman v Superman.

Hemlock Grove Season 3 - October 23

The final chapter of Hemlock Grove comes out next month, bringing Netflix's polarizing but potent horror fantasy to a close.
