Here’s Everything Coming To Netflix in September, Which Is Apparently the Month We’re In
Can you believe it's only been 375 months since January?!
Here we are, in the 764th month of 2020, which I’m told we’re referring to as “September.” If you say so, calendar! I’m in southern California where it’s currently 90 degrees, aka summer until Christmas. But as we soldier on through this mental obstacle course of a year, at least there is plenty of streaming content to keep us entertained!
As usual, our top picks are bolded, and there’s truly some exciting stuff coming to your screen this month. So grab your popcorn, your fuzziest blanket, and tune out the apocalypse for 90 minutes or so!
