What’s coming soon to Netflix UK in September 2017?
Staff Reporter | On 23, Aug 2017Reading time: 13 mins
Summer is – whisper it – drawing to a close. But while September sees the start of school, college, university and gradually darkening nights, there’s still some warmth to be found in the comforting skies of Netflix, with a month that’s more packed than most – even by Netflix’s standards. From the return of Narcos and (finally) Gotham to The Expanse’s second season and Line of Duty’s third run, September is a month of long-awaited arrivals. BoJack Horseman is also back for a fourth outing, a reunion almost as sweet as the chance to re-watch Arnie’s Last Action Hero.
New originals come courtesy of Angelina Jolie’s latest directorial effort, Yance Ford’s hugely powerful Sundance hit Strong Island, Robert Redford’s Our Spuls at Night, and the premiere of Jerry Seinfeld’s first Netflix original comedy special. All that and SPECTRE, indie gems Jawbone and The Fits and Designated Survivor’s second season? Thank goodness Netflix has a Magic School Bus to fit everyone on board. That, and a new USS starship called Discovery…
