One of the most popular series in the true crime genre is back for another season. It began in 1987 and ran through 2010. Netflix brought it back in 2017 with a whole new slate of mysteries that remain unsolved. It is both infuriating and fascinating to watch. The good news is, the series gets eyes on these cold cases and is able to generate tips to give some sort of hope for these unsolved mysteries. If you’re in the mood for some real-life spookiness, this is the show for you.

Maybe you're not a horror person and that is okay. But Netflix will still have you screaming with emotion with this old-fashioned romance limited series. Zoe Saldaña stars as Amy, a young girl from Texas who moves to Florence to study art and winds up falling madly in love with a young chef, Lino (Eugenio Mastrandrea). The story is based on Tembi Locke’s memoir of the same name and if you know anything about her story, you may want to have a box of tissues handy.

Only Guillermo del Toro could recruit this many big-name stars for an original horror anthology. Del Toro will take on the hosting duties à la Alfred Hitchcock, introducing a brand-new story with which each episode. The series features a wide variety of classic horror genres with an all-star cast and two episodes penned by del Toro himself.

Speaking of spooky, is there anything scarier than the nightmare of adolescence? Big Mouth returns for its sixth season and continues the tale of best friends Andrew (John Mulaney) and Nick (Nick Kroll). Together with their pals, they are navigating puberty and hormones in the most blatant way, and we are all here for it. Maya Rudolph has already won two Primetime Emmys for her voice work on the show, and it’s worth it just to tune in to hear her say “Bubble Bath” (Trust me).

Not a Netflix original but the long-awaited Season 3 of the hit show Derry Girls finally drops on Netflix in October, and it was well worth the wait. For those awaiting some closure for our favorite Catholics from Northern Ireland, this season will hit you in the feels in all the right places. This final season wraps up their stories with perfection with the girls finally finding themselves face to face with the Troubles that have been the backdrop of the entire series. We'll miss these characters, we'll miss this show, and most of all, we'll miss this soundtrack.
