August is coming to an end and September is arriving this week. While that hopefully means cooler weather is right around the corner, it also means Netflix is adding a bunch of new movies and shows to their lineup.

This week brings a new Netflix movie, a new season of a Netflix Original series, a new Netflix documentary, and some not-so-new but great movies from the 1990s and early 2000s.

One of the big Netflix Original movies coming this week is Afterlife of the Party. It hits the streaming service on Thursday, Sept. 2. Starring Victoria Justice and Adam Garcia, the film tells the story of a young woman who dies during the week of her birthday. But she’s not dead for long. She gets a second chance to fix the mistakes she made if she wants to earn her wings.

Check out the trailer here:

Looking for a new documentary? UNTOLD: Crime & Penalties comes to Netflix on Tuesday, Aug. 31. The doc tells the story of a hockey team, the Danbury Trashers. They’re run by a 17-year-old whose father just so happens to have ties to the mob. The team, as you might imagine, is quite violent on and off the ice and that gains them a reputation.

Take a look at the trailer here:

Volume 1 of Money Heist Part 5 is also coming to Netflix this week on Friday, Sept. 3. This is the final season of the show, but since it’s being split up into two parts, we get to enjoy it a little longer. The first volume is five episodes and will start right where part 4 left off.

The gang has to get through the final stages of the heist and escape. But they don’t just have to escape, they also have to keep their freedom once they get out of the bank.

Take a look at the trailer for the first part of the last season here:

This week also brings a few oldies but goodies including A Cinderella Story with Hilary Duff, Mars Attacks! with Glenn Close and Jack Nicholson, and School of Rock with Jack Black. All of them are coming out on Wednesday, Sept 1.
