Every movie and show coming to Netflix in October


Oct 1, 2023

Even with Netflix’s recommendation algorithm serving you new movies, new TV shows, and original programming tailored to your viewing habits, the streaming service’s firehose of content makes what’s coming and going difficult to parse.

October might be time for Halloween and all things spooky, but it’s also time to indulge in the joy of being a little kid again. And what’s a better way to do that than with the original Spy Kids trilogy? Just on the heels of Robert Rodriguez’s new entry to the franchise, the first three Spy Kids movies arrive to Netflix in the middle of October along with a lot of other new and returning titles, like Dune.

Editor’s pick: The Spy Kids movies

Kid-friendly movies that make kids the stars and indulge in zany fantasies did not originate with Spy Kids, but Spy Kids changed the game for two main reasons. One, it was in line with the popular genre movies of the time, and let kids be like the action heroes their parents were watching. And two, instead of making the movie look slick and grown-up, Rodriguez tapped right into a more garish and visually bright aesthetic. The result is childhood make-believe games come to life, with more budget than a Disney Channel Original Movie but the same ethos.

The original Spy Kids still holds up, and the sequels are both full of their own zany moments and quotable lines (and the A-Listers as villains and supporting grown-ups really help make them memorable). It’s time to get nostalgic — and maybe be Ingrid and-slash-or Gregorio Cortez for Halloween.
