Netflix charges into fall with movies, original series, and other new releases headed to the streaming giant in September.

Original TV offerings include Ryan Murphy’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest spinoff Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson as the naughty nurse; Hilary Swank space exploration drama Away; and The Duchess, with Katherine Ryan as a single mom considering having a baby with her nemesis: her daughter’s dad. 

Netflix also continues its push into reality TV with new seasons of The Chef Show and Chef’s Table, plus some new competition series: karaoke-themed Sing On! and American Barbecue Showdown.

On the film side, there’s the Charlie Kaufman adaptation I’m Thinking of Ending Things, Tom Holland– and Robert Pattinson–starring The Devil All the Time, Millie Bobby Brown’s Enola Holmes, and horror sequel The Babysitter: Killer Queen.

One of the most exciting archival adds: All eight seasons of Mara Brock Akil’s Girlfriends, the 2000s sitcom that ran for six seasons on UPN and two on The CW.
