The Watcher is watching you. And now it's your turn to watch The Watcher. Ryan Murphy's new Netflix show The Watcher — based on the true story of new owners of a suburban house who get threatened by anonymous letters — is out now, and it's sure to be the next big Netflix thriller. It's one of several big-name new shows out this month on Netflix.

Also out this October are new seasons of Love Is Blind, Somebody Feed Phil, and Unsolved Mysteries, as well as premieres of the Italy-set romance From Scratch, the supernatural YA drama The School for Good and Evil, and the horror anthology Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities, which is coming just in time for Halloween.

The Best New Netflix Shows and Movies in October

Eddie Redmayne and Jessica Chastain, The Good Nurse

Derry Girls Season 3 (Oct. 7)

The beloved '90s-set comedy from Northern Ireland returns for its third and final season, which ends — historical spoiler alert — with the signing of the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, which marked the official end of the Troubles. Until you get to that, though, you can be entertained by witty dialogue and accents so thick you might need to turn on closed captioning. This show, which premiered on the UK's Channel 4 in 2018, put Bridgerton's Nicola Coughlan on Netflix's radar, and look at her now. [Trailer]

The Midnight Club (Oct. 7)

This is the latest project from prolific horror-drama maestro Mike Flanagan, whose previous Netflix shows include The Haunting of Hill House and Midnight Mass, two of the finest works of horror in any medium of the past 10 years. It's an adaptation of a 1994 teen thriller by Christopher Pike about a group of terminally ill young people living in a hospice ward who gather at midnight to tell each other scary stories. They make a pact that when the first of them dies, they'll communicate with the rest from beyond the grave. Nothing could go wrong there! This looks to skew a little YA for my tastes, but in Flanagan we trust, so it's an automatic watch. [Trailer]  

Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities (Oct. 25-28)

At this point in the Peak TV era, there have been so many mediocre episodic anthology series that it's unwise to get too excited over any new one, because more likely than not it will be disappointing. That being said, most episodic anthologies aren't gothic, practical effects-heavy horror shows executive-produced by Best Picture winner Guillermo del Toro. They also don't have horror luminaries behind the camera like Jennifer Kent (The Babadook), Ana Lily Amirpour (A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night), and Panos Cosmatos (Mandy). Or have an episode that's an adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft's most famous stories, "Pickman's Model," starring Crispin Glover. This might be the exception to anthology fatigue. [Trailer]

The Good Nurse (Oct. 26)

Oscar-winners Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne star in this drama about the chilling case of Charles Cullen, a nurse who is confirmed to have killed 29 people and is suspected to have possibly killed hundreds more during a period of time in which he kept getting jobs at hospitals in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Redmayne plays Cullen, while Chastain plays Amy Loughren, a nurse who played a pivotal role in catching Cullen. [Trailer]

Wendell & Wild (Oct. 28)

This is a PG-13-rated stop-motion animated horror-comedy from director Henry Selick (The Nightmare Before Christmas) and writer-producer Jordan Peele (Nope) that reunites Peele and Keegan-Michael Key as the voices of the titular demon brothers, who manipulate a troubled teenage girl into letting them into the Land of the Living. What more do you need? This is a spooky season must-watch. [Trailer]
