For cord-cutters, the start of a new month means a slew of new shows and movies to add to their watchlist. Netflix’s September lineup includes highly anticipated final season premieres amid limited series and new Netflix Originals. One thing is for sure: Your only struggle will be deciding what to watch first.

For those who love limited series that leave you feeling unsettled and guessing until the very end, “Dear Child” must be on your watchlist. Based on the book of the same name by Romy Hausmann, the series depicts a truly chilling scenario: A woman, Lena (Kim Riedle), and two kids, Jonathan (Sammy Schrein) and Hannah (Naila Schuberth), are kept in isolation and obey every command of the man who holds them.

As long as you don’t mind subtitles for the English translation, mark your calendar for the release on Sept. 7.

Featuring interviews with real operatives, officers, and spies, it gives audiences behind-the-scenes stories on Cold War campaigns, a bunch of spycraft missions, and covert agents carrying out coups. Settle in with freshly popped popcorn for all the covert ops secrets you always wanted to know on Sept. 8.

‘Wrestlers’ — Sept. 13

This docuseries isn’t about a missing person or unsolved murder like most docuseries. Instead, this is a glimpse into the world of wrestling, specifically the Ohio Valley Wrestling of Louisville, Kentucky, a regional wrestling gym whose alumni include John Cena and Dave Bautista. The gym has since hit hard times and operates at a massive loss, barely able to pay its week-to-week rent. They have one summer to pull things together and hopefully save a historic gym.

Check out “Wrestlers” on Sept. 13.

‘Castlevania: Nocturne’ — Sept. 28

If you watched “Castlevania,” then you’ll be excited to know the next installment in the Castlevania universe is here with “Castlevania: Nocturne.” It’s 1792, during the French Revolution in a remote part of Western France, where a counter-revolutionary aristocracy has allied with the Vampire Messiah (that doesn’t sound good!). The Messiah’s mission is to unleash an army of vampires and night creatures to enslave humans. It’s up to the last descendant of the vampire hunter’s family, Richter Belmont (Edward Bluemel), to lead the resistance.

Produced by Project 51 Productions, “Castlevania: Nocturne” will surely be an incredible addition to the anime genre on Sept. 28.
