What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in October 2018?
Staff Reporter | On 26, Sep 2018Reading time: 13 mins
You know how it is: you wait for one exciting Netflix original series and then 9 come along at once. In the case of October, just one of those would be enough to get us excited: Making a Murderer has surprised us all by returning on 19th October for Part 2, as it continues to tell the story of Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey. It’s joined by the equally unexpected early return of Daredevil for Season 3 on the same day, both of them arriving just a week after Riverdale’s third season and The Haunting of Hill House. If it’s scary you want, though, things won’t get much spookier than Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, which arrives just in time for Halloween, alongside Season 2 of Castlevania.
While you’re busy catching new episodes of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Black Lightning and Spanish drama Elite, younger members of the family can look forward to the entire Twilight Saga or (for even younger members of the family) Season 2 of The Boss Baby’s spin-off animated series. And, in between them all, come a promising trio of Netflix original films: Private Life from Tamara Jenkins, Apostle from Gareth Evans and 22 July from Paul Greengrass. All that and the fourth season of Line of Duty to fill that Bodyguard void? You better start clearing that social calendar right now: October’s going to be a binge-heavy month.
