The latest movies, new Netflix series, and other new releases coming to the streaming giant this month include critically-acclaimed series — including Dear White People, which holds a coveted spot in our 100% Certified Fresh club; award-show favorite GLOW; and David Fincher’s Mindhunter, for example — returning this month.

Plus, Netflix offers up a prequel to Muppet mastermind Jim Henson‘s beloved 1982 film The Dark Crystal, a fantasy series risk that is sure to test the streaming giant’s dedication to the development of pricey prestige programming.
