Your fave Netflix teen drama and Japanese reality show are making a return alongside the premieres of a horror musical, a binge-worthy haunting, a bisexual dramedy, and Nicholas Cage losing his fucking mind.

Terrace House: Opening New Doors: Part 4

It’s the sweetest, funniest, and most addictive TV show on Netflix and you can bet your ass we’re keeping this entire day free so we can binge the latest instalment in one go.
Tuesday 9th October (Netflix)

The Bisexual

This London-set dramedy hails from Desiree Akhavan (The Miseducation of Cameron Post) and looks incredibly promising for its irreverent take on modern romance and sexuality. Akhavan stars opposite national treasure Maxine Peake as a lesbian navigating a sexual crisis when she starts dating men after ending a long-term relationship with her girlfriend.
Weds 10th October (Channel 4)

Riverdale (Season 3)

Presented here without commentary. Except to say, WE’VE MISSED YOU RIVERDALE and OUR BODIES ARE READY. We expect plenty of topless Archie Andrews scenes within the first two minutes of Season 3.
Thursday 11th October (The CW / Netflix)

I Know What You Did Last Summer: The Unauthorized Musical

If you just so happy to be lucky enough to be anywhere near Los Angeles in the next weeks then be sure to grab a ticket for this must-see horror-musical masterpiece from the same masterminds behind Cruel Intentions: The Musical and The Unauthorized OC Musical.
Thursday 11th October (El Cid, Los Angeles)

The Haunting of Hill House

Based on Shirley Jackson’s iconic horror novel, this latest adaptation of the story looks genuinely spooky as shit. Definitely the perfect TV bingewatch to guide you into the thick, shadowy fortress of Halloween season.
Friday 12th October (Netflix)

The Romanoffs

We were honestly in two-minds as to whether the latest show from Matthew Wiener even deserves a place on this list for a myriad of reasons - not least of all because it just looks a little prestige-TV-by-numbers and dull. However, it does star Christina Hendricks: A woman we’d likely all too happily throw ourselves off a cliff to protect.

Bad Times at the El Royale

Drew Goddard’s latest movie looks like an unabashed, neo-noir good time with some intriguing twists at the heart of it. Judging solely from the trailer we’re on board with all of it - including its phenomenal cast which boasts Jon Hamm, Jeff Bridges, and Katharine Isabelle.

Mandy

Hopefully you haven’t already had this movie ruined for you by over-enthusiastic Americans blabbing about it incessantly on social media (it premiered there long before the UK). And if that’s the cast then Panos Cosmatos’ surreal horror-fantasy is an absolute must-fee for those who love dark, twisted fairy tales with a side of bloody revenge (and plenty of Nicholas Cage).

Elle King, Shake the Spirit

We’re doubtful that anything can surpass King’s raspy pop hit “Ex’s and Oh’s” in our hearts and minds but from the songs currently released, the husky pop rocker’s latest album certainly sounds like it’s worth a stream for some Sunday morning, hungover rebel-rousing.
Friday 12th October

Neneh Cherry, Broken Politics

Produced entirely by Four Tet, Cherry’s first album in four years is one for everyone who continues to bust out their best moves to “Buffalo Stance” every weekend. The album seems to be tackling some timely and challenging political issues and seems to have a vague Massive Attack-esque trip hop vibe to the whole thing.
