·5 min read

Netflix is sharing a never-before-seen glimpse at its October 2022 streaming slate, and it’s even better than expected.

The list is full of recognizable titles, including 17 Again, How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Ocean's Eleven, Rush Hour and Wedding Crashers. However, the real showstoppers are all the new original titles. While there are multiple debuts—like Luckiest Girl Alive—there are also several shows that are returning for new seasons, like Derry Girls and Love Is Blind.

Keep reading for our top picks from Netflix’s new releases, followed by a complete list of TV shows and movies that are coming to the streaming service beginning in October.

1. Derry Girls

Set in the 1990s, Derry Girls follows a group of teenagers at a Catholic high school in Northern Ireland. Be sure to catch up on the first two installments before season 3 premieres on October 7.

2. Luckiest Girl Alive

Premiere date: October 7

Ani FaNelli (Mila Kunis) appears to have it all, from a job at The New York Times to a handsome fiancé (Finn Wittrock). Everything changes when she’s contacted by a film crew, who want to make a documentary about a violent attack that occurred at her high school.

3. The Mole

Premiere date: October 7

If you loved the original ’00s series, you need to watch this all-new remake that follows a group of contestants competing in various challenges. The catch? There’s a “mole” among them, and they must figure out who it is to win.

Season 4 of the popular series explores the mysterious disappearance of Percy Muldoon (Alice Kremelberg), who vanished from a quiet village in Maine.

5. Love Is Blind

The reality show is returning for season 3, which follows single men and women who date each other without ever seeing their fellow contestants’ faces. They sit in separate rooms called solo pods that take blind dating to an entirely new level.

6. From Scratch

Premiere date: October 21

Based on Tembi Locke’s namesake memoir, the series follows a woman (Zoe Saldaña) who travels to Italy for a fresh start. Cue the forbidden love interest.
