Netflix New Releases: The Best Shows & Movies to Watch in September

Netflix is sharing a never-before-seen glimpse at its September 2023 streaming slate, and it’s even better than expected.

The list is full of recognizable titles, including 8 Mile, Baby Mama, Jaws, Matilda, Superbad and Up in the Air. However, the real showstoppers are all the new original titles. While there are multiple debuts, there are also several shows that are returning for new seasons, like Love Is Blind, Sex Education and—drumroll, please—Virgin River.

Keep reading for our top picks from Netflix’s new releases, followed by a complete list of TV shows and movies that are coming to the streaming service beginning in September.

1. Virgin River

  • Premiere date: September 7

Who’s ready for Virgin River season five? The series focuses on a nurse practitioner named Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge), who moves to a small town for a fresh start. It doesn’t take long for her to befriend the residents and a handsome bar owner, Jack (Martin Henderson).

2. Selling the OC

  • Premiere date: September 8

That’s right, the Selling Sunset spin-off is returning for season two. The reality show follows the real estate agents at The Oppenheim Group in Orange County, where they compete to sell the most luxurious properties.

3. Sex Education

  • Premiere date: September 21

Mark your calendars for season four on September 21. The series centers around Otis (Asa Butterfield) and his sex-therapist mom, Jean (Gillian Anderson), as they navigate their awkward mother-son relationship during Otis’s formative high school years.

4. Love Is Blind

  • Premiere date: September 22

The reality show is returning for a fifth season on September 22. The series takes blind dating to a whole new level by having single contestants meet each other in “pods” where they can only hear each other. If they get engaged, they can finally meet in person.
