Netflix's new shows and films: Everything coming in October, from Stranger Things and Riverdale to Mindhunter

Also: Noah Baumbach's Palme d'Or nominee The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected)

Stranger Things: Season 2 trailer

With the nights drawing in and the cold weather acquiescing October will prove the perfect time to put your Netflix subscription to good use with a month of standout additions worth your time.

Stranger Things bears no introduction, its first season becoming one of the most unexpected smash hits of 2016. The agonising wait for its second season will draw to a close on Halloween ready to turn your world, er, Upside Down (forgive us) as bizarre events continue to rock Mike, Dustin, Lucas and the formerly missing Will Byers in Hawkins, Indiana.

Millie Bobby Brown's Eleven will return for the nine-episode season as will adult stars Winona Ryder and David Harbour.

David Fincher has directed the first episode of new detective series MINDHUNTER which will arrive midway through the month. Based on the book Mind Hunter: Inside FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit by Mark Olshaker and John E. Douglas, this new series stars Jonathan Groff and Holt McCallant as FBI agents who must delve in the psyches of serial killers in order to solve pending investigations. Think Criminal Minds meets Zodiac.

Other directors to lend their talent to the 1979-set series, which will premiere at the London Film Festival, is documentary maker Asif Kapadia (Senna, Amy) and Tobias Lindholm (A Hijacking).

You may be wary of any new Adam Sandler film that finds its way to Netflix but don't let that throw you off the scent of The Meyerowitz Stories (New and Selected). This is the latest from director Noah Baumbach (Frances Ha, Mistress America) and sees Sandler turn in his best performance since Paul Thomas Anderson's Punch-Drunk Love (2002). Nominated for the Palme d'Or at Cannes, the film follows an estranged family (Elizabeth Marvel, Ben Stiller) who gather in New York for an event celebrating the artistic work of their father (Dustin Hoffman).

Then there's Netflix's first Italian series, the ten-episode Suburra - an adaptation of Carlo Bonini and Giancarlo De Cataldo's doorsropper which was turned into a searing crime film just last year (from director Stefano Sollima, currently hard at work on Sicario sequel Soldado). Set in 2008, Suburra tracks the deadly connections between corrupt politicians, organised crime and the Vatican. It'll last for ten episodes.
