As the bitter cold weather continues, “Netflix & Chill” is still an entirely appropriate weekend and after-work activity. We should all revel in this lazy opportunity before the sun comes out and there’s societal pressure to actually hang out with 3-dimensional people. There is no better way to spend your Thursday evening than brewing some mate, grabbing some popcorn, and hunkering down to watch the new (and not-so-new) movies and series on offer.

Sorry, you will all have to change your plans this September, there are just too many awesome things to watch.

There are quite a few Argentine releases, including the Oscar-winning La Historia Oficial. This is excellent news and Netflix must have been listening to our cries as this is a definite must-see for anyone and everyone. Not only is it important for Argentines familiar with the harrowing truth behind the dark era of the desaparecidos during the last military dictatorship, but it is also a period of time that has been covered by history books around the globe.

Along with that 1985 drama, the streaming platform is also releasing the 2015 film Francisco – El Padre Jorge which tells the story of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, from his early childhood days to becoming Pope Francis. If that isn’t enough for you to start sending a text saying “Sorry, I’m busy next weekend” then maybe the  2014 comedy El Último Elvis might tickle your fancy. The film depicts Elvis impersonator Carlos’s desire to escape reality and live in his fantasy world of being his superstar. Finally, there’s definitely a need to re-watch Un Novio Para Mi Mujer for the 12th time this year.

The series, movies, and documentaries coming to Netflix Latin America in September 2018:


September 1 

La Catedral del Mar (Cathedral of the Sea)

Gotham, Season 4

How to Get Away with Murder, Season 4

Marvel -Inhumans, Season 1

Grey’s Anatomy, Season 14

Yes, Grey’s Anatomy hasn’t ended yet: it’s like the gift that keeps on giving. Four seasons longer than Friends, it looks like this hospital drama will be continuing forever (and ever). If this classic US show isn’t what you’re looking for, then maybe you fancy something a little historical with the 14th-century drama La Catedral del Mar, based on the book of the same title.

September 3

Ash vs. Evil Dead, Season 2

September 7

Atypical, Season 2

Las Chicas de Cable (Cable Girls), Season 3

Marvel – Iron Fist, Season 2

Yaaas, Las Chicas de Cable are back and better than ever. If you’re as addicted to the hit Spanish show as I am, then you will be anxiously counting down the days until September 7th. If Spanish isn’t your first language, this is an excellent show to start off with to improve your skills; the cast speaks very clearly and you can always have Spanish subtitles below to help along the way. Plus, the 1920’s costumes are enough to convert any fashionista to the show.

September 10

Supergirl, Season 3

September 11

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Season 3

September 14

Bojack Horseman, Season 5

Ingobernable (Ungovernable), Season 2

American Vandal, Season 2

The World’s Most Extraordinary Homes, Season 2

The extremely popular Mexican political drama Ingobernable is finally back over well over 18 months for its second season. This is a presidential power couple gone wrong, as Emilia pushes against her patriarchal, manipulative, president husband (Melania, don’t get any ideas now…) but a great a series to get hooked on.

Maniac Mini Series

The Good Cop

Argentine hit El Marginal is finally back after two years of leaving us on the Netflix equivilent of ‘read.’ If you do not have an excellent level of Spanish you will definitely need the English subtitles to understand the very confusing, fast-paced prison slang.

The 2015 Pixar movie Inside Out has been praised by parents and psychologists alike, as the animated film is applauded for helping children understand complex emotions. It reveals that happiness is not the only appropriate emotion for a child (or adult) to feel; sadness, anger, and disgust are all natural emotions. In a time where social media can be so detrimental, this film really helps kids (again, adults too!) to come to terms with their emotions.
