Here's what's coming to (and leaving from) Netflix in October

Netflix has released its October offerings (and sacrifices), and they look seasonally appropriate. Next month, go inside the mind of David Fincher’s Mindhunter series, which premieres October 13, or saddle up for a harrowing ride alongside Frank Grillo in Wheelman. And on October 27, you can demonstrate how unafraid you are of ghosts by watching the second season of Stranger Things. In non-original content, you can have a mini-horror marathon with 13 Demons and Cult Of Chucky.


If you’re looking for fewer thrills and chills, though, the comedy special Patton Oswalt: Annihilation will be available beginning October 17. Or you can watch Adam Sandler in The Meyerowitz Stories (New And Selected), if you’re so inclined. But because life is unfair—or rather, full of shifting licensing rights—you’ll have to say goodbye to Malcolm In The Middle, 30 Rock, The Wonder Years, Friday Night Lights, Louie, Prison Break, and The Bernie Mac Show. The complete list of comings and goings is below; Netflix originals are denoted with an asterisk.
