What’s new on Netflix in October: ‘Gilmore Girls,’ ‘Catching Fire,’ more

October is quickly approaching and that means new movies and TV shows will soon be new on Netflix.

At the beginning of every month, the Netflix catalog gets an influx of new content. October is no different, and some of the titles that are available this month are some of our favorite movies ever. Our queues are currently too full, but it looks like they’re about to get even fuller.

The full selection of titles that are and will be new on Netflix will follow, but first we wanted to highlight a few selections.

The arrival of Arrow season 2 was inaccurately reported by many outlets (including us) as coming in September, but we’ve received confirmation from Netflix that it will be coming in October, along with new seasons of other CW shows The Originals, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries.

Gilmore Girls is one of the most beloved TV series of all time, and fans are overjoyed that it will be new on Netflix. If you’ve never watched the show we recommend checking it out. If you’re anything like its faithful audience, you will fall in love.

If you’ve been holding off buying The Hunger Games: Catching Fire on DVD and Blu-ray in hopes that it would be new on Netflix, it’s your lucky day. The successful second entry in the Hunger Games film series will be joining its predecessor on Netflix later in October, and in good time too. Less than a month after it hits Netflix The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 will be released in theaters, so you have enough time to rewatch both prior films before seeing Mockingjay opening night.

If you’ve never seen Galaxy Quest, you’re in for a special treat. The film is a Guardians of the Galaxy-esque space opera, and it’s full on sci-fi satire. Instead of poking fun at its inspirations (primarily Star Trek), it’s clear that Galaxy Quest has total adoration for what it is satirizing, and that goes a long way.

If you care about female filmmakers, you should absolutely check out In a World…, the feature length debut for Lake Bell as a writer/director. Her film proved that she has tremendous promise as a filmmaker as well as the ability she’s shown as an actress. In a World… isn’t a perfect movie, but it is enjoyable and very smart.

All titles available on October 1 unless noted otherwise.
