Although the Netflix and Chills lineup kicks off with a pair of thrillers released in September, there are so many new Netflix movies and shows coming in October 2022 to officially get spooky season started.
After a slower September, which featured a heavier focus on Netflix movies rather than shows, October will be jam-packed with new release series you won’t want to miss. It’s a month full of brand-new Netflix shows, including The Midnight Club, Cabinet of Curiosities, and From Scratch.
While there’s plenty to binge-watch in the lead-up to Halloween, the streamer continues to bring out the movie stars for a huge month of new movies. Luckiest Girl Alive, The School for Good and Evil, and The Good Nurse are just some of the movies to look forward to in October.
New Netflix movies October 2022
Before we highlight the can’t-miss new Netflix shows coming in October 2022, let’s dive into some of the biggest movies premiering throughout the month with stars such as Mila Kunis, Priah Ferguson, Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, Jessica Chastain, and more!
Luckiest Girl Alive
Release Date: Oct. 7
Based on the novel of the same name by Jessica Knoll, Mila Kunis stars in Luckiest Girl Alive as Ani FaNelli. While she appears to have it all on the outside, Ani must confront the dark truths from her past when a crime documentary reopens those mysterious old wounds. The twisty new movie will be one of the month’s best when it premieres Oct. 7.
The Curse of Bridge Hollow
Release Date: Oct. 14
It’s not Halloween without a new movie centered around the holiday. Disney+ has the highly anticipated Hocus Pocus 2 coming in late September, and Netflix has Stranger Things star Priah Ferguson in The Curse of Bridge Hollow. The comedy also stars Marlon Wayans and features Halloween decorations coming to life. Needless to say, we should all be watching on Oct. 14.
The School for Good and Evil
Release Date: Oct. 19
Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron team up in The School for Good and Evil, which is based on the novel of the same name by Soman Chainani. The fantasy film follows a pair of best friends end up on different sides of their new enchanted school, which teaches the balance between good and evil. Watch that balance get threatened on Oct. 19.
The Good Nurse
Release Date: Oct. 26
Academy Award winners Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne star in the new Netflix movie The Good Nurse. Based on true events, Amy (Jessica Chastain) connects with fellow nurse Charlie (Eddie Redmayne), but she begins to suspect he may be responsible for a string of patient deaths. The Good Nurse premieres on Oct. 26, and you won’t want to miss it.

In addition to the must-watch Netflix movies coming in October, handfuls of new series and new seasons are coming for our watch lists — no tricks, all treats. This year’s Netflix and Chills lineup shines with the new releases that everyone will be talking about.
The Midnight Club

One of the most highly anticipated new Netflix shows of the year, Mike Flanagan’s horror mystery series The Midnight Club makes its premiere on Oct. 7.
