With 2020 having witnessed far more people who are not working from home and nothing to do binge-watch Netflix shows, the estimated number of hours spent watching streaming services has skyrocketed. One caveat: with so many great series on the streamer, the selection could be somewhat of a work and so we have rounded up this guide for the best Netflix shows to watch for the month of September.

A new month heralds the opportunity for a new beginning which is relative to the COVID-19 pandemic. Aside from sweater weather and the spooky season, for some people, they will witness the end of Work From Home (WFH) and the long-anticipated return to the office to separate work and life.

Netflix adds original programs at a steady pace that it could be hard to keep up with its dramas, comedies, and reality shows, reported The New York Times.

There is usually quite an entertainment lull in September as students return to school, folks setting off to watch their old favorites for the upcoming holidays, and awards season starts starting to be in preparation, reported Collider.

Some of the new movies (or returns in most cases) appear to be strategic pickups. For "Charlie's Angels" movies, they can be added in anticipation of the upcoming McG sequel "Baby Sitter."
