7 new additions to Netflix to look forward to in September

Feel like you've seen everything on Netflix?

We all know trying to choose what to watch on Netflix is one of the most difficult challenges for human beings these days.

You'll scroll, watch trailers, add stuff to 'My List' and keep browsing until it's actually too late to watch something.

It happens every. single. time.

But now that a new month is nearly here, there's a whole batch of new movies and TV series' to look forward to - including some stand-out ones you'll definitely want to set reminders for.

Here are 7 new Netflix releases we're looking forward to this September.

The I-Land

When ten people wake up on a treacherous island with no memory of who they are or how they got there, they set off on a trek to try to get back home.

They soon discover this world is not as it seems.

Faced with the I-Land’s extreme psychological and physical challenges, they must rise to their better selves -- or die as their worst ones.

Criminal

This revolutionary procedural comprises 12 unique stories set in 4 different countries: France, Spain, Germany and the UK.

It takes place exclusively within the confines of a police interview suite.

This stripped down, cat-and-mouse drama focuses on the intense mental conflict between detectives and suspects.

Unbelievable

When teenager Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever) files a police report claiming she's been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story.

Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.

The series is inspired by the real events in The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article, "An Unbelievable Story of Rape," written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, and the This American Life radio episode, “Anatomy of Doubt”.

The Politician

Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, California, has known since age seven that he's going to be President of the United States. But first he'll have to navigate the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.

To get elected Student Body President, secure a spot at Harvard, and stay on his singular path to success, Payton will have to outsmart his ruthless classmates without sacrificing his own morality and carefully crafted image.

Full of comedy and sly satire, Ryan Murphy's The Politician offers a rare glimpse into just what it takes to make a politician.

Elite

Las Encinas, the best and most exclusive school in Spain where the elite send their children to study, is also where three working class kids have just been admitted after their academy was destroyed by an earthquake and the local council divided up the students between the different schools in the area.

The clash between those who have everything and those who have nothing to lose creates the perfect storm that ultimately ends in a murder.

And when season two begins, Samuel is determined to defend his brother and find out the truth of what happened, "whatever the cost". But will he manage to figure out what happened that night?

The Spy

The Spy is inspired by the real-life story of former Mossad agent, Eli Cohen, who successfully goes undercover in Syria in the early 1960s.

Cohen becomes close enough to ambitious military leaders and their rich friends to earn a game-changing level of trust about Syria’s biggest anti-Israel secret initiatives.

The series stars, Emmy-nominated Sacha Baron Cohen as Eli Cohen, a man who wants nothing more than to be of service to his country, but he does his job so well that he finds it hard to strip off his double identity.

Inside Bill's Brain: Decoding Bill Gates

From Academy Award-winning director Davis Guggenheim comes Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates, a new three-part documentary that explores the mind and motivations of celebrated tech visionary, business leader, and philanthropist Bill Gates.

After stepping down as CEO of Microsoft, Gates began what is undeniably one of the greatest professional second acts in modern history when he shifted his time and considerable intellect toward solving some of the world’s most persistent problems.

The series, in-depth and unfiltered in its depiction of a man's life journey, both his triumphs and setbacks, offers unprecedented access to Gates as he pursues unique solutions to some of the world’s most complex problems with the same level of optimism, curiosity, and fervor that inspired his original vision for Microsoft.
