The first season of Marvel's Luke Cage comes to Netflix in September.



September sees a slew of new television seasons coming to Netflix this month, including the highly anticipated new Marvel series Luke Cage. There's also the addition of Jaws and its sequels, as well as Zootopia and The Finest Hours as Disney's deal with the streaming service starts this month. But as Netflix giveth, it taketh away, and so shows like Alias and Fringe, the Jurassic Park series and Disney animated films The Emperor's New Groove and Lilo & Stitch leave. For a full list, read below:

Sep. 1
The Amityville Horror (2005)
Bayou Maharajah: The Tragic Genius of James Booker
Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey
Bratz: The Movie
Burn, Burn, Burn
Cats & Dogs

Netflix has steadily been adding Steven Spielberg movies, so it was only a matter of time before they brought on his best. The film about a New England town's efforts to fight a killer shark is so perfectly directed, paced and acted that most entries in the blockbuster genre it created couldn't compare. For an example of this, see the Jaws sequels also being added this month.
Jaws 2
Jaws 3
Jaws: The Revenge
Joyful Noise
Keepers of the Game
Last Holiday
Lucky Days
(Season 1)
Man on Wire
Milk Money
Practical Magic
Road Trip
Sam Kinison: Breaking the Rules

Saving Private Ryan
Steven Spielberg often likes to make a blockbuster and serious film in succession, and Netflix seems to like to follow his strategy when bringing his films to the streaming service. As they add Jaws (and remove Jurassic Park and Alice Walker adaptation The Color Purple), they're also adding his World War II drama Saving Private Ryan, most renowned for its intense Omaha Beach opening sequence.
Scary Movie 2
(Season 5-­6)
Stomp the Yard
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Tim Burton's newer work has been criticized by some as an excuse to dress Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter up in wigs (although it's unlikely that will stay true given recent events.) His adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical may resemble that remark superficially, but it nails the dark, potent spirit of the source material and stands as Burton's best film since Ed Wood.
Top Gun
True Grit
The Wicker Man
Wild Madagascar
The Womanizer
(Season 1)
The Year of Happiness and Love (Season 1)
Sep. 2
Baby Daddy (Season 5)

So far, Disney's streaming deal with Netflix this month has not been the "every Disney movie ever" situation some breathlessly anticipated when the news was released. Yet a good start is adding this year's Zootopia, the critically acclaimed animated film about a bunny (Ginnifer Goodwin) and fox (Jason Bateman) detective team in an animal metropolis.
Sep. 22

Marvel's Luke Cage (Season 1)
September will feel like Sweet Christmas for fans of the superhero with unbreakable skin and Jessica Jones supporting character, as his own television show debuts. Marvel's Jessica Jones and Daredevil have been two of the strongest original Netflix series thus far, and Mike Colter proved a more than capable Cage on the former show.
