New Netflix Shows and Movies in September 2023

Wes Anderson is bringing his artful eye to Netflix

Benedict Cumberbatch, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar

Benedict Cumberbatch, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar


Netflix may have changed the way we watch TV by giving us an endless stream of things to watch, but September is an uncharacteristically slow month. And when September ends, there will be even less to watch, as three of our highlights for September are final seasons of shows that have run for four seasons or more. The biggest release of the month is Season 4 of Sex Education, the British raunch-com following some teens whose fears, curiosities, and concerns about sex are helped out by a sex therapist... who happens to be a fellow student. Also out this month are the final seasons of the crime drama Top Boy and the animated series Disenchanted, and the premiere of Wes Anderson's collection of short films, The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar.

Scroll on for more on the month's highlights, plus the full list of everything coming to and leaving Netflix in September 2023.

Disenchantment Season 5 (Sept. 1)

The fantasy animated series Disenchantment has had a quiet run on Netflix, where it has the familiar bug eyes, four fingers, and adorable overbites you know from Matt Groening's art style but hasn't gained the same following as his other two hits, The Simpsons and Futurama. In the fifth and final season, Princess Bean (Abbi Jacobson) continues to fight her evil mother and expel her from Dreamland with the help of the demon Luci (Eric André) and naive Elfo (Nat Faxon). Plus, Matt Berry does a voice in the series, and when Matt Berry does a voice, we listen. [Trailer]

Top Boy Season 5 (Sept. 7)

Is it Series 5? Season 3? Season 5? Whatever it is, the British show — which ran for two series on the U.K.'s Channel 4 from 2011 to 2013 and was revived by Drake, yes, THAT Drake, and Netflix in 2019 — goes out for one final round as one of TV's best crime thrillers. Yes, it's up there with The Wire! The series follows a pair of drug dealers in London's Hackney neighborhood as their efforts to expand their empires come with bloodshed and betrayal. As if the conclusion of the cult crime drama weren't enough, Top Boy is adding top boys Barry Keoghan and Brian Gleeson to the final season. [Trailer]

Sex Education Season 4 (Sept. 21)

Soon, Sex Education will have nothing left to teach you. For its fourth and final season, the colorfully raunchy British series is literally shutting down the school: Moordale Secondary has been closed, and its former students now find themselves at a school so progressive, Otis (Asa Butterfield) isn't even the only therapist on campus. Meanwhile, Maeve (Emma Mackey) is living her academic dream in America. The cast is getting a shakeup, too; Dan Levy and Jodie Turner-Smith join the show, while some longtime cast members, including Patricia Allison and Bridgerton's Simone Ashley, aren't returning. But Gillian Anderson is back as Otis' uninhibited mother, and so is future Doctor Who star Ncuti Gatwa as Eric Effiong, the show's best and most singular creation. As long as we have Eric, we're never skipping class. -Kelly Connolly [Trailer]

The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar (Sept. 27)

Do you enjoy colorful, symmetrical images with Instagram filters over them? Then you will probably love The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar, the newest project from auteur Wes Anderson and his second adaptation of a Roald Dahl work, following 2009's animated feature The Fantastic Mr. Fox. Though categorized as a film, it's more of a collection of four short films based on Dahl's short stories. Further denying its status as a "film" is the fact that the four installments will air over consecutive days through Saturday, with the 40-minute The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar starring Benedict Cumberbatch kicking things off. The three other shorts all run 17 minutes long and star Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel, Ben Kingsley, and my favorite, Richard Ayoade. -Tim Surette [Trailer]
