Netflix adds 17 new movies and shows this week
A new week is here (we made it!) and that means lots of new movies and shows are being added to Netflix. Whether you’re looking for a documentary on climate change, a docu-series about deaf people in college, or a new spooky series just in time for Halloween, there’s something to fit everyone’s mood.
If you’re looking for something educational, David Attenborough: A Life on Our Planet comes to Netflix on Sunday, Oct. 4. The documentary follows the famous natural historian as he talks about the effects of climate change on our planet and what he’s seen firsthand.

More in the mood for a docu-series? You should definitely check out Deaf U when it hits Netflix on Friday, Oct. 9. The series follows a group of students at Gallaudet University, a private college that caters to deaf and hard of hearing students. It was produced by Nyle DiMarco, a deaf actor, model, and activist.
DiMarco has stated that “the goal of the series is to show deaf people as humans, from all walks of life,” and to show the hearing community that the “deaf community isn’t a monolith.”

More in the mood for a spooky, scare-your-pants-off series? You’re in luck because The Haunting of Bly Manor is finally coming to Netflix on Friday, Oct. 9. The show follows Henry, the uncle of an orphaned brother and sister who must get a new nanny after their au pair dies tragically. They all live in Bly Manor with their personal chef, groundskeeper, and housekeeper.
But in this show, dead doesn’t mean they are gone forever and no one is who they seem. Netflix describes the series as a “gothic romance” so we’re in store for some spookiness for sure!
