What's new (and what's leaving) on Netflix in September 2018

Black Panther

Look, you don't have to be the world's biggest MCU fan. You don't have to care about Avengers or super heros or any of that stuff. But Black Panther is worth watching, and it's worth watching several times. And that's why we're stoked that it's coming to Netflix on Sept. 4.

And there are, of course, a bunch of Netflix Originals on the way. Atypical hits season 2, as does Iron Fist. (OK, OK, it's another MCU thing.) And the trailer for Maniac is, well, insane. (And how good is Justin Theroux in just about everything?)

Put it this way: It's going to be one hell of a month. Here's what's coming up.
