Netflix returns to the scene of the crime with “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie,” with Aaron Paul, and Steven Soderbergh’s “The Laundromat,” a drama about the Panama Papers scandal starring Meryl Streep and Gary Oldman — two of the most anticipated Netflix Originals debuting in October.

Also debuting are “Dolemite is My Name!,” starring Eddie Murphy as the legendary actor/comedian/rapper, and new series “Living With Yourself,” a dark comedy starring Paul Rudd and Paul Rudd.

For the Halloween horror season, Netflix presents a handful of original thrillers, including “Fractured,” with Sam Worthington; “Eli,” with Kelly Reilly and Lily Taylor; “In the Tall Grass,” with Patrick Wilson; and “Rattlesnake,” with Carmen Ejogo.


Other new shows include teen apocalypse comedy-thriller “Daybreak” and adolescent superhero drama “Raising Dion.”  Among the nonfiction shows are “Living Undocumented” and “Rhythm and Flow.” Plus: new seasons of “The Kominsky Method,” “Insatiable” and “Peaky Blinders.”

Also arriving in October: the acclaimed documentary “Echo in the Canyon,” about the music culture of Laurel Canyon in the 1960s; Martin Scorsese’s “Raging Bull,” starring Robert De Niro; the original “Karate Kid” and “Men in Black“; and stand-up comedy specials from Nikki Glaser, Deon Cole, Jenny Slate and Arsenio Hall.

Here’s the list of what’s arriving on Netflix in October, and what’s leaving. Note that these are just highlights; Stream On Demand will be keeping an eye out for other notable films and TV shows that arrive through the month.
