Netflix Australia may have just deleted a stack of movies and TV shows, but there's no need to cry into your beer just yet. In September, we're getting approximately 70 new movies, TV shows and documentaries to binge on. Here's the full list!
This month's highlights include a new season of TERRACE HOUSE, serial killer flick In the Shadow of the Moon, the Mossad series The Spy and the intriguing sounding Criminal. There are some big releases on the third-party movie front too, including Aquaman, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and T2: Trainspotting.
You cam see a synopsis of each title and when it drops in the list below.
When Netflix originally launched in Australia, one of the chief selling points was its perpetual movie and TV library, with the service promising not to remove any content as it sought to build up a compelling library. Those halcyon days are now a distant memory.
In August, Netflix dropped the guillotine on more than 60 titles, including some critically acclaimed gems and cult classics. And it hasn't finished yet - there's still another week of cuts to come.
