The best new Netflix TV shows and films in September 2016: The top new content on Netflix this month

Netflix knows exactly how you watch TV. Sure, it captures data on what you’re watching, but it also knows the best way to make you keep watching – even if it does the responsible thing of checking in on you now and again.

Because of this, it’s understandable that you may have already blazed your way through our pick of the best TV shows on Netflix, all of its must-see documentaries and the essential viewing that are its Netflix Originals. Heck, you may have even switched over to American Netflix just so you could gobble up all of that content too.

Thankfully, Netflix knows you desire more. So, every month it adds new content for you to peruse and view at your leisure. We’ve already put together a list of everything that’s coming to Netflix in September, but here’s our pick of the top shows being added to our favourite streaming service this month.

The best Netflix content in September:

What’s NewIMDB Score
Behind Enemy Lines6.4
Chef’s Table8.7
Luke CageN/A

Narcos (Season 2)

Pablo Escobar is on the run for his life. The world’s most notorious drug kingpin has been arrested and has, somehow, made a break for it. Now he’s on the run, Colombia is not a safe place to be as the authorities chase down the nation’s most-wanted man.

While the second season plays a bit more fast and loose with the true story of Escobar, it’s guaranteed to be just as gripping as the first.

Streaming from 2 September

Behind Enemy Lines

Starring Owen Wilson and Gene Hackman, Behind Enemy Lines follows the story of US Navy navigator Lt. Chris Burnett as he escapes his lethal pursuers after his plane is downed in enemy territory.

Widely written off by many film critics as being just another US-military action film, Behind Enemy Lines sees Wilson giving a great performance in a non-comedy role. If you’re looking for an action film with a bit of a thriller vibe thrown in, this is definitely one to watch.

Streaming from 1 September

Chef’s Table: France (Season 3)

Following the same format as past Chef’s Table series, Chef’s Table: France focuses the world-spanning documentary series onto France’s best chefs. Unlike previous series, which span six episodes, season 3 hones its formula down to just four, darting between Paris, Roanne and Noirmoutier. If you’re a fan of food, especially French cuisine, you’ll want to see what these chefs get up to.

Streaming from 2 September

Marvel’s Luke Cage

Joining the ranks of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, Marvel’s Luke Cage is another Netflix Original that ties into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While any real details around the show are still under wraps, Luke Cage gains his ability for super strength and unbreakable skin after an experiment goes horribly wrong. After being wrongly accused of a crime he didn’t commit, Cage becomes a superhero-for-hire while on the run from the law.

Streaming from 30 September
