Changes Coming to Movies and Television on Netflix September 2016

Summer is wrapping up and Netflix listings are changing once again. Netflix September has plenty on the way, and a few listings on their way out as well. Catch them before they’re gone for a while!

Movie Changes to Netflix September

Our Movie Recommendations

Roboshark Netflix September
Very realism

The month kicks off with a ton of additions on September first, including, perhaps most impressively, all four Jaws movies. Did you even know there WERE four Jaws movies? There are, and if you can make it to the last one you’ll get to watch Jaws’ mom get revenge on Earth’s most fearsome villain: Humankind. Unfortunately, we also lose Roboshark the same day–so catch it before it goes belly-up.

We also recommend checking out the original True Grit (1969), Practical Magic, The Amityville Horror, Babeland Bill and Ted’s Bogus Adventure. 

Saving Private Ryan and Top Gun are coming on the first, for those of you with more militaristic interests.

Finally, musical fans will be pleased to see Footloose (1984), Joyful Noise, Sweeny Todd (2007), and Stomp the Yard join the ranks this month. They may also like (read: love) that they’ll only have to wait until the seventh for both seasons of Galavant.

Movies for Kidszootopia Netflix September

It’s a light month for kid’s movies, although Netflix will get the long-awaited Disney film Zootopia on the 20th. (There has to be a joke here about the streaming service also dropping Zoolander on the first.) Bratz: The Movie and Cats & Dogs kick off the month, with only R.L. Stine’s Mostly Ghostly: One Night in Doom House (September 6th) coming out later. Even worse news for the youngest viewers, Disney’s The Emperor’s New Groove and Lilo and Stitch leave on the 9th.

Netflix Originals

Netflix is producing plenty of original or exclusive content throughout September, including Kulipari: An Army of Frogs (September 2nd), Extremis (September 13th)­, Cedric The Entertainer: Live from the Ville and The White Helmets (both September 16th), Audrie & Daisy  and Iliza Shlesinger: Confirmed Kills (September 23rd), and finally Amanda Knox (September 30th).

Catch it Before It’s Gone

In order to make room for all the new, some oldies have to go. Netflix drops 2 Fast 2 Furious, A Walk to Remember, The Color Purpleand the classic Roman Holiday at the top of the month. We recommend binging before the leaves change color.

See below for the rest of the movie changes to Netflix September.

Television Changes to Netflix September

Our Television Recommendations

Season five of the British cult fave The IT Crowd joins Netflix September first. The streaming service also gets seasons five and six of Shameless (U.S.) on the first. Freeform (formerly ABC Family) programs Baby Daddy and Young & Hungry will get seasons five and four, respectively, on the second. Season five of the sitcom New Girl comes out on the 20th–and we think it’s the best season yet.


Supergirl Netflix SeptemberBut we know what you’re really here for, and we’ve got good news. Yes, Luke Cage is coming out this month (more on that below) but Netflix also gets Supergirl on the 10th, season 6 of The Walking Dead on the 15th, season four of Luther and the final season of Penny Dreadful on the 17thGotham‘s second season hits just two days later on the 19th.

Netflix Originals

Luke Cage Netflix SeptemberI Am the Ambassador: Season 1 ­kicks off the month, closely followed by Chef’s Table: France, and Kazoops!: Season 1 ­on the second. There’s a bit of time before the next original, Easy, premieres on the 22nd–and with a star studded line-up featuring Orlando Bloom, it should be worth the wait. Longmire: Season 5 , and VeggieTales in the House: Season 4 come out the next day, but at that point we’re sure you’ll be hanging by a thread waiting for Marvel’s Luke Cage–which gets added to Netflix September 30th.

Catch It Before It’s Gone

There aren’t many series leaving Netflix, we are forced to say goodbye to all five seasons of both Fringe and Alias on September 11th and 19th, respectively. See below for the complete list of television changes on Netflix September 1-30.
