Here's What's Coming To And Leaving US Netflix In October 2017

The spookiest month of the year is nearly upon us, and that means Netflix is once again shaking up its streaming video offerings, adding some anticipated and downright scary season sequels while kicking some of the most beloved comedy shows on TV to the kerb.

Note: This list refers to the US version of Netflix. It has a different library to Australia which changes from month to month. This information is only relevant to readers who access US Netflix using a VPN. Our roundup of Australian Netflix changes will be appearing soon.

The Highlights

Among the new arrivals to Netflix's lineup is cult classic Donnie Darko. If teenage angst and giant rabbit costumes aren't your thing, you can revel in Will Ferrell's performance as a professional racecar driver in Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, or Sandra Bullock's portrayal of an FBI agent in Miss Congeniality (not to mention Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous!).

As far as original content, Netflix has some pretty choice offerings to look out for. The second season of Stranger Things puts your favourite gang of unruly, waffle-devouring kids back in harm's way. There are some heart-wrenching original documentaries available as well, including The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson, and Kingdom of Us, which centres around the death of a father in a family of seven. Need something lighter? Try Patton Oswalt: Annihilation, the comedian's upcoming comedy special.

Netflix is getting rid of some pretty amazing and classic TV shows from its roster, including all seven seasons of the critically acclaimed 30 Rock, and the entirety of The Bernie Mac Show. It isn't all bad news, though. At least they're taking Big Daddy out too, sparing everyone Adam Sandler's bland brand of humour.
