Coming and Going on Netflix in September 2018

Chadwick Boseman is the African superhero in the Marvel Comics hit movie

The superhero event of 2018, Marvel’s Black Panther, comes to Netflix in September, as does Disney’s epic adaptation of the young adult classic A Wrinkle in Time, two of the highlights of a very busy month for the streaming service.

Netflix launches its own fall season of new shows, including Emma Stone and Jonah Hill in the Netflix Original drama Maniac, set in the world of pharmaceutical drug trials, and Josh Groban and Tony Danza in the police comedy The Good Cop from “Monk” creator Andy Breckman, and the unscipted chat series Norm Macdonald has a Show. In addition, there are new seasons of the superhero series Iron Fist (which advance says will be an improvement on the first), family sitcom Atypical, adult animated series Bojack Horseman, and crime documentary satire American Vandal among others.

The original movie line-up includes the animated robot buddy family adventure Next Gen, frontier thriller Hold the Dark starring Alexander Skarsgård, Riley Keough, and Jeffrey Wright from director Jeremy Saulnier that arrives direct from the Toronto International Film Festival, and romantic drama Nappily Ever After with Sanaa Lathan.

Older films joining the library include the acclaimed 2015 horror hit The Witch, Disney’s animated Lilo & Stitch and The Emperor’s New Groove, Clint Eastwood’s Oscar-winning Unforgiven, and the iconic Groundhog Day with Bill Murray, a comedy you can see again and again.

Among the streaming TV options are the seventh and final season of Once Upon a Time and new seasons of The Walking Dead, The Blacklist, Quantico, and Call the Midwife, plus American Horror Story: Cult.

Among the titles leaving Netflix in September are the live action family fantasy Pete’s Dragon, Oscar winner The Imitation Game with Benedict Cumberbatch, Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom, superhero movies Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, and the 1976 A Star is Born with Barbra Streisand.
