Fall is on its way, which means it's time to wrap ourselves up in the comfiest blanket and indulge in pumpkin spiced flavored treats to watch the newest Netflix releases. Or just hide from the weather and all things pumpkin spice and watch Netflix, either way. The streaming giant released its list of everything coming to Netflix in September, plus the shows and movies leaving the platform, and we've got our nights and weekends all booked up just thinking about it.

Two new limited series are premiering in September, including The I-Land, starring Kate Bosworth and Alex Pettyfer and Unbelievable, starring Toni Collette, Merritt Wever, and Kaitlyn Dever. If you're looking for some inspiration to be your best self, tune in to Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates, a documentary about the billionaire's commitment to solving pervasive world problems through philanthropy. Season two of Explained is back with more deep dives into salient global topics to answer big "why" questions. And Ryan Murphy's comedy The Politician premieres with a star-studded cast, including Ben Platt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, and Jessica Lange.

As always, we’ll have to part ways with a list of titles, including Disney classics. With the November 12 launch of Disney+, Disney’s new streaming service, favorites such as Hercules, Mulan, Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has A Glitch, and Pocahontas will be leaving Netflix in September and heading to Disney+ soon, so start watching them before they’re gone.

Keep scrolling to check out the releases we’re most excited for below, as well as the full list of everything to watch this month.

The I-Land

Normally, anything that involves a beach is absolute bliss, but that's not the case for Kate Bosworth and Alex Pettyfer's characters in I-Land. The limited series is about 10 strangers trapped on an island, with no memory of who they are and how they arrived. Attempting to get back home, they are struck by perilous challenges that will either make or break them. Available September 12.

Based on true events, Unbelievable chronicles the story of teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) who was sexually assaulted by a home intruder. However, investigating detectives and the closest people in her life didn't believe her story. All the while, two female detectives (Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) in a different state are investigating a series of related crimes that could reveal the truth. Available September 13.

Explained: Season 2

This short-form series is tackling the big “why” behind pretty much ever major cultural, zeitgeisty convo going on these days. Each episode will tackle a different topic, including the billionaire boom, athleisure, the lure of cults, politics, pop culture, and so much more. Season two will also feature narration from a slew of celebrities such as Christian Slater, Rachel McAdams, Kevin Smith, Rachel Bloom, Samira Wiley, and more. Available September 26.

Remember when we all had childhood goals to be president one day? Well that goal still rings true for Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California who’s always known he would be the president of the United States. But first he must be elected student body president. However, this is no easy feat for the high schooler hustling to pave his way to Harvard. Ryan Murphy’s latest comedy also stars Gwyneth Paltrow, Zoey Deutch, Lucy Boynton, and Jessica Lange. Available September 27.
