We are officially in September and even though it hasn’t quite felt like spring yet (considering the weather), the excitement hasn’t waned a bit, this is especially when you consider the great variety of content Netflix has in store this month. The selection coming our way this month will definitely put a spring (see what was done there?) in anyone’s step with the launch of Ryan Murphy’s new show The Politician starring Ben Platt, Jessica Lange and Gwenyth Paltrow. In addition, we can also look forward to the squad from Elite returning for a second season, along with Bean and Luci in Disenchantment: Part 2. Here are our top picks:
