What's new on Netflix in October 2022: The Good Nurse , Rush Hour, and more

Netflix heats up the streaming wars this October with a huge haul of new originals, returning series, and a smorgasbord of classic films.

One of the most talked about upcoming premieres is The Good Nurse, which will star Oscar-winning actors Jessica Chastain and Eddie Redmayne as two nurses in an ICU unit who grapple with a string of suspicious patient deaths. Also premiering will be Netflix's reboot of The Mole, a reality series that shakes up the standard formula by tasking one player to secretly deceive the group and hinder their progress... all for their own gain.

We're also entering spooky season and Netflix is bringing out enough silver bullets, garlic bulbs, and wooden stakes to kill the entire cast of True Blood and Twilight combined. Helming Netflix's Halloween offerings is famed filmmaker, Guillermo del Toro, who is premiering his horror anthology series, Cabinet of Curiosities. Also joining the lineup will be The Midnight Club, about a group of young Hospice patients who meet up every night to tell scary stories. Nostalgia alert: Heather Langenkamp, the famous Scream Queen from A Nightmare on Elm Street, is cast as the facility's doctor.

And, as always, Netlfix is onboarding a hoard of classic fan-favorite films as well, like Scooby-Doo, Rush Hour, 17 Again, Runaway Bride, and more.
