Well Badgers, summer vacation is over and September is upon us. That means two things: classes are starting and Netflix has a brand-new slate of movies and shows coming in.

Before we launch into a semester of hard work and extracurriculars, remember that you need to balance your plate. Bingeing a new set of Netflix movies and shows might just be the answer.

Right about now you are probably buying books and notebooks, organizing your backpack and mentally preparing for your courses. So you probably don’t have time at the moment to scroll through Netflix and find all the wonderful new additions. We’re here to help.

While it’s sad seeing some of our favorite content exit to make room for these new additions, there is no need to fret because some of these new additions are pretty great.

Without further ado, let’s begin highlighting the best September has to offer.

What has already been added this month

September 1 was a big day for Netflix as a plethora of TV seasons and movies were added. 

The top movie additions include: “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers,” “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King,” “Superbad,” “300,” “American Psycho” and “My Sister’s Keeper.” 

“Superbad” may be one of the most iconic and hilarious comedies of the 2000s, and if you haven’t yet seen Jonah Hill and Michael Cera star alongside Emma Stone, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Bill Hader and Seth Rogen in this edgy teen comedy, you’ve been missing out. But not anymore. 

“American Psycho,” while under-appreciated upon its release, has aged well and features one of Christian Bale’s most committed, engaging yet terrifying performances of his career.

The top TV additions include “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” Season Six, “Naruto” Season Seven, and “The Walking Dead” Season Nine.

September 10 brings the famous novel-turned-Julia-Roberts-romance “Eat Pray Love” to the streaming service as well as the newest season of the immensely popular “Shameless.”
