What’s Worth Streaming: Here’s everything coming to Netflix in October 2021 — and what’s leaving


Netflix Inc. has a bag full of Halloween-themed shows and movies coming in October, along with some big-name original films and the return of some series that viewers may have forgotten about.

After a nearly two-year absence, the stalker thriller “You” (Oct. 15) returns with a third season, which finds Joe (Penn Badgley) now married with a baby and living in the suburbs, though that’s unlikely to stop his murderous instincts. For the teen crowd, “The Baby-Sitters Club” (Oct. 11) returns for its second season, as does the supernatural mystery “Locke & Key” (Oct. 22).

On the movie front, Netflix

is rolling out “The Guilty” (Oct. 1), an Antoine Fuqua-directed thriller starring Jake Gyllenhaal as a 911 operator trying to save a caller who’s in grave danger; “Maid” (Oct. 1), a drama based on Stephanie Land’s best-selling memoir about a young woman trying to work her way out of poverty, starring Margaret Qualley; “Army of Thieves” (Oct. 29), a safe-cracking heist thriller that serves as a prequel to Zack Snyder’s “Army of the Dead”; and “Diana: The Musical” (Oct. 1), the filmed version of the Broadway musical about Princess Diana, starring Jeanna De Waal.

For Halloween, there’s a range of offerings, from the bewitching tween mystery “Scaredy Cats” (Oct. 1), to the WWE “interactive” film “Escape the Undertaker” (Oct. 5), to the Megan Fox supernatural thriller “Night Teeth” (Oct. 20).

Also among the grab-bag of Netflix content firehose:  Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Sex, Love & Goop” (Oct. 21); “Colin in Black & White” (Oct. 29), the Colin Kaepernick biographic series from Ava DuVernay; a second season of the costumed dating show “Sexy Beasts” (Oct. 7); a new installment of the behind-the-scenes docuseries “The Movies that Made Us” (Oct. 12); and movies such as “Ghost,” “Titanic” and “Zodiac” (all Oct. 1).

Oh, and all nine seasons of “Seinfeld” are coming Oct. 1.
