Netflix Canada: What's New In October 2017?


For fans of Netflix original series, there are probably only two shows that matter come October, 2017: "Stranger Things 2" and "Riverdale" season 2.

But don't worry, Netflix Canada subscribers, both of those shows (plus a ton more) will be making their way to your TV screens, Oct. 27 and Oct. 12, respectively.

"Stranger Things" fans no doubt have a ton of questions that were left unanswered after the end of season one: What happened to Eleven? Is Barb really dead? Will we visit the Upside Down again? And will Joyce ever stop screaming for Will?

Meanwhile over in Riverdale, we'll be introduced to a bunch of new characters, including Veronica's nefarious dad, Hiram Lodge, as well as a new love interest for everyone's favourite redhead (no, not Archie), Cheryl Blossom.


So what are you going to binge-watch in October? Check out highlights in the gallery below and find our selections under the gallery:
