September is here, as well as pumpkin spice lattes, Spirit Halloween stores, and release dates for spooky shows and movies. Netflix released their fall lineup for all things scary and creepy.

One of the most anticipated shows for this spooky season is Tim Burton’s spinoff from The Addams Family, Wednesday. The show stars Jenna Ortega as the title character, alongside Catherine Zeta-Jones as Morticia, Luis Guzmán as Gomez, Riki Lindhome as Dr. Valerie Kinbott, and an appearance from Christina Ricci, who originally played Wednesday in the films. The show currently does not have a set release date.

Recent horror icon Mike Flanagan, who created The Haunting of Hill House, The Haunting of Bly Manor, and Midnight Mass, brings yet another highly-anticipated horror show to Netflix, The Midnight Club. The series is an adaptation of a 1994 novel by Christopher Pike of the same name. The series follows ” a group of five terminally ill patients at Brightcliffe Hospice, who begin to gather together at midnight to share scary stories.” With his prior successes of the other shows, fans are looking forward to his newest project. The Midnight Club premieres on October 7.
