All the movies and TV shows coming to Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime in October 2021

October's streaming highlights include new movies from the horror masters at Blumhouse and a new series starring Michael Keaton.

With the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looking closely at the spread of the delta variant, some residents may be searching for streaming options instead of heading to the theaters this weekend.

Thankfully, October looks like another great month for streaming, as Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and Amazon Prime will offer plenty of new releases.

Here’s the complete lineup of new movies and TV shows arriving on the four platforms in October 2021. If you want more curated guides, be sure to check out our list of the 10 best movies and TV shows to stream right now, our 2021 fall movie preview, and our 2021 fall TV preview.
