Here’s Everything New On Netflix This Week, Including ‘Hold The Dark’ And Season 8 Of ‘The Walking Dead’


Netflix is closing out the month of September with a few exciting adds and a handful of great films preparing to say goodbye. Before Fall is officially in swing, the streaming service is dropping their crime thriller, Hold The Dark, starring Jeffrey Wright and Alexander Skarsgard and giving us the latest season of The Walking Dead. If zombies and murder aren’t your thing, there’s always Ava DuVernay’s A Wrinkle in Time that looks like quality family viewing. Of course, it can be tough to keep up with what needs to be binged at the moment. That’s why we’re bringing you a round-up of what’s new to Netflix and what’s departing this week of September 28th.

Hold The Dark (Netflix original streaming 9/28)

Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier is back with another film that prods at the complexities of humanity with gore and violence, this time set in the Alaskan wilderness. Westworld’s Jeffrey Wright plays Russell Core, a wolf preservationist and author summoned to a remote Alaskan town by a grieving mother intent on finding her son who might have been taken by wolves — it happens a lot there. Her husband (Alexander Skarsgard) is off serving in Iraq, and Core is her only hope of rescuing her son and getting revenge on the animal who took him. Whether that animal is wolf, human, or something else altogether is what Saulnier wants you to find out.

The Walking Dead: Season 8 (series streaming 9/23)

Season eight of The Walking Dead finally lands on Netflix this week. If you’ve stuck with the show this far, you know that the battle between the survivors of Alexandria and the Saviors, (read: the battle between Rick and Negan) really ramps up this season. Maggie leads the Hilltop Community, Ezekiel and Carol lead the Kingdom, and Rick’s crew joins them to deal with the Savior threat once and for all, but not before some huge character deaths and a few shocking reveals take place.

Disney’s A Wrinkle In Time (film streaming 9/25)

Ava DuVernay’s-directed fantasy epic is traveling through space and time to make it’s home on Netflix this week. The family flick follows a young girl named Meg (newcomer Storm Reid), who must go on an inter-dimensional adventure to rescue her father who’s being held prisoner by some sort of dark force. Along the way, she’s helped by three astral beings, Mrs. Which (Oprah Winfrey), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling).
