Whether you’re a fan of their music or not, you have probably heard of the super-popular girl group BLACKPINK.

18. The Unicorn

Season: 1

Starring: Walton Goggins, Rob Corddry, Omar Miller, Maya Lynne Robinson, Ruby Jay, Makenzie Moss, Devin Bright, Michaela Watkins

Release Date: Thursday, Oct. 1

Because of the barrage of new streaming services, these days it’s kind of rare that a new show from the traditional small screen makes its way to Netflix. We’re more likely to catch new shows on the streamer associated with their production company, whether it’s Hulu, HBO Max or CBS All Access. But this month, a pair of hit new shows from CBS bring their first seasons to Netflix, and there’s no time like the present to finally get into them, beginning with The Unicorn.

Walton Goggins stars in the sitcom as Wade, a recent widower and now single father attempting to find balance in all areas of his life. But when his friends encourage him to start dipping his toe back in the dating pond, Wade discovers that as a widower and single father, he’s more of a catch than he could have ever anticipated. The Unicorn scored stable ratings for CBS and earned positive reviews from critics and fans alike. If you’re in need of a good laugh, be sure to catch all 18 first season episodes before the series returns for season 2 later this year.
