Raising Dion

Release date: October 4, 2019.

Nicole (Alisha Wainwright) is not your normal single mum. After the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan), Nicole must protect her son, Dion (Ja’Siah Young) from ‘government forces’, who are out to exploit him for his superhero abilities.

They’re joined by Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and together they attempt to discover the origin of Dion’s abilities, while evading those who want to do him harm.

The 10-part series is based of a 2015 comic book and short film of the same name.

El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

Breaking Bad fans, this is the moment you've all been waiting for. Over six years from when the original series ended, Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) is back. Fresh from his escape from the Aryan Brotherhood, Jesse must evade both law enforcement and his old enemies, in order to craft a new life for himself.

Living with Yourself

Release date: October 18, 2019.

Paul Rudd is starring opposite, well... himself in this comedy about a medical treatment gone wrong. Rudd plays the character of Miles, a miserable man who is struggling with his career and love life, and decides to undergo a treatment at the suspicious The Happy Spa, which promises to make him the best version of himself. Instead he wakes up from the treatment as the exact same person, and is confronted with a clone, who is indeed the more 'superior Miles'. Existential chaos ensues.

The eight-part series watches a little like a comedic Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde mixed with pangs of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and was created and written by Emmy Award winner Timothy Greenberg (The Daily Show with Trevor Noah and The Detour).

Daybreak

Release date: October 24, 2019.

If you loved Netflix's The Society, then you'll want to binge Daybreak as soon as it hits Netflix on October 24. In the wake of a nuclear blast on the night of their Homecoming dance, various high school cliques have banded together as they attempt to survive in this new post-apocalyptic world. From jocks, to gamers, and every other clique in between, are left to their own devices, competing against themselves for dominance.

Netflix describes the series as "part samurai saga, part endearing coming-of-age story, and part Battle Royale," and we are very intrigued.
