There’s still a lot going to happen on Netflix in October. After the arrival of the third season of Sex Education but also of Squid Game and action film Kate with Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the American platform is preparing to put new content online, both films and series. The festivities will begin on October 1, with the entire cult series Seinfeld which will land on the SVOD service. A fabulous opportunity to meet the most famous trio of friends on American television. On October 23, another very important sitcom will be added to Netflix’s impressive catalog: The Office US. The American remake of the series created by Ricky Gervais, broadcast between 2005 and 2013, made a deep impression on viewers. Those who have not yet discovered it will be able to immerse themselves very quickly in its 9 seasons. Laughs guaranteed. Other shows are coming to Netflix, and GQ has a small selection of what you shouldn’t miss in October.
The Guilty (October 1st)
It’s one of the cinematic events this fall. 6 years later Rabies in the Belly, Jake Gyllenhaal reunites with director Antoine Fuqua in The Guilty, a thriller that takes place in an emergency call center and promises to be very intense. Written by Nic Pizzolatto, the screenwriter of the series True Detective, this film is the remake of a Danish feature film of the same name, released in theaters in July 2018 and which had met with great success in France (more than 250,000 admissions). Jake Gyllenhaal plays a police inspector who will try to save an interlocutor in danger of death by guiding her by phone on what to do. Will he be able to rescue her? The suspense is total and promises a great spectacle.
The Last Black Man in San Francisco (October 1st)
Almost 2 years after its release in the United States, The Last Black Man in San Francisco finally arrives in France. Directed by the young filmmaker Joe Talbot, this first film tells how Jimmie Fails tries, with the help of his best friend, to save the house built by his grandfather in San Francisco. Acclaimed by American critics and awarded the Best Director award at the Sundance Film Festival, The Last Black Man in San Francisco promises to be a touching experience, both political and intimate, on the gentrification of large American cities.
Family Business, season 3 (October 8)
End clap for the Hazan family and Family Business. On October 8, the series imagined by director Igor Gotesman will bid farewell to its fans with a long-awaited third and final season. Worn by Gérard Darmon, Jonathan Cohen and Julia Piaton, Family Business follows the daily life of a family of butchers who switch to the (illegal) cannabis trade, growing their own plants in the utmost secrecy. The problems did not take long to arrive and they are still very important in this new burst of episodes.
You, season 3 (October 15)
One of the biggest television phenomena of recent years is making a comeback. Series You returns fiercer than ever with a third season. Joseph Goldberg (Penn Badgley) and Love Quinn (Victoria Pedretti) have been a perfect and peaceful couple since the birth of their child. But for how long? A new character appears and shakes the tranquility of the home that the two main characters have founded. The most brutal instincts resurface and promise painful hours. Almost two years after the second season, impatience is at its peak for fans of You.
Army of Thieves (October 29)
Barely 5 months after the release of Zack Snyder’s zombie movie Army of The Dead, the time has already come for the prequel. October 29 will be released Army of Thieves, a heist film that will return to the character of Dieter. This bank employee, camped by Matthias Schweighöfer (who also directs this feature film), is recruited by a mysterious woman to steal the money hidden in safes deemed inviolable in Europe. On the program, lots of action and humor. In the casting, we will find in particular a certain Jonathan Cohen who, after Family Business, continues to expand his range of play and seems to be aiming for an international career.
