Over the weekend, Netflix gave the world a sneak peek at a bunch of buzzy upcoming series, including the live-action adaptation of Cowboy Bebop coming in November. Amazon Prime Video has some great stuff planned for the rest of 2021, too, including a potential “next Game of Thrones,” in The Wheel of Time, based on the mega-selling book series. But that’s November. October is…less exciting.

The biggest draw this month appears to be a familiar, if probably slightly worse, version of a thing you already liked in the form of a new series based on one of the ‘90s biggest horror franchises. No, not Scream (MTV already did that); I’m talking about I Know What You Did Last Summer. The first four episodes of the reboot drop Oct. 15, and perhaps they will be more faithful to the delightfully trashy Lois Duncan novel on which the first film was based.

More promising is a series of Blumhouse-produced cheapo horror flicks that recall streaming versions of the kind of schlock that used to attract eyeballs at the video rental place via punny titles, lurid covers, and high concept premises. I mean, once you hear that Bingo Hell (Oct. 1) is about a senior citizen who fights back against the demonic presence that has overtaken the local bingo hall, you kind of want to watch it, don’t you?

Here’s everything else coming to the streaming service in the U.S. this month — including yet more horror and a few original specials and documentary series.
