Netflix has always been pretty good at keeping things fresh and exciting with its streaming line-up. What's the secret? Apparently, a good dose of purging and acquiring titles for the streaming catalog. Which leads us to the usual announcement of next month's acquisitions in Netflix-land, and October's incoming titles are so good they make September look like August. Of course, we have to warn that these titles are subject to change, so keep an eye out in your queue for specific titles and their availability. Now, without further delay, let's see what Netflix is sending our way just in time for Oktoberfest!

Movie fans, you have a hell of an October ahead of you, as favorites and hidden gems from all walks are to be found! Disney folk will love to see the underseen Meet the Robinsons cropping up again, while Kubrick devotees will be pleased they can watch Eyes Wide Shut on Netflix yet again. But you'll also be able to see some new and recent titles entering the arena as well, with Smurfs: The Lost Village coming to the streaming library after its release earlier this summer, and Cult of Chucky having a Netflix debut on the same exact day it hits Blu-ray and DVD.
Of course, if you're more of a TV person, you won't be disappointed on that front either, as Netflix is debuting some promising originals, like Mindhunter, as well as bringing back old favorites like Stranger Things, in its second season of nostalgic themed sci-fi horror delight. On the network front, horror fans will get to see what The Mist is all about, with season 1 coming online in October, just in time for Halloween. But if you're not into being creeped out, Schitt's Creek's third season and The Fosters' fifth season will both be available throughout the month, to fulfill your binge-worthy wishes.
Netflix has a lot of promising material coming our way throughout October, and you're not going to want to miss any of it! Of course, if you're more interested in what's about to leave, we'll have a guide up later today highlighting the films that are heading out the door. Though you can always check last month's departing list, just to make sure you didn't miss something you really wanted to see recently.
