Everything that’s coming out on Netflix this month is proof that Spooky Season has officially arrived

It’s finally October! That means a few important things: Summer is definitely over. Libra season has arrived. And so has Spooky Season, that delightful time of the year when the leaves turn crunchy, the wind howls like a ghoul, and the nightly witching hour feels the witchiest it’s been since, well, last October. And if you needed any proof that Spooky Season is here, just look at the list of new movies and shows that are coming to Netflix this month. It’s definitely time to pop some popcorn, make some hot cider, cozy up under a blanket, turn off all the lights, and get ready to be spooked.

We truly have so much to look forward to this month up to and including the new season of You which features Joe and Love as parents to their new baby and that’s guaranteed to put a chill down anyone’s spine. There’s also tons of news series and movies, new and old, to keep you entertained this October.

Netflix has even brought in horror queen Elvira herself to help explain why you simply need spooky content this month:

Here’s what’s coming up for the next several weeks’ worth of scary nights:
