October is the perfect month for curling up in front of the TV (or computer), whether for a Harry Potter marathon, a scary movie with your friends, or just to watch Netflix on a chilly day. Luckily, there's a lot of great new content coming to Netflix in October: There are new seasons of your favorite TV shows, classic old movies you may not have watched in years, and both popular and indie recent releases. Evident in the October lineup is Netflix's plan to eventually feature 50 percent original content; many of the site's upcoming offerings are original shows, movies, documentaries, and reboots.
Of course, the end of September also means that we'll have to say goodbye to some of Netflix's offerings. If you want to watch any of the Back to the Future movies or Season 38 of Saturday Night Live on Netflix, you should get on that fast. Other titles that will no longer be available on or shortly after October 1 are Honey, Erin Brockovich, My Girl, The Interview, and The Truman Show.
Luckily, there's plenty to anticipate on Netflix this October. Here are 14 of the streaming service's most exciting new offerings, along with the day of the month they'll be released.

The '80s classic is coming to Netflix, so kids will have something great to watch while skipping school.
Black Mirror: Season 3, Part 1 (10/21)

The Netflix series for the YouTube character Miranda Sings is sure to generate some buzz.
