Zack Snyder is scaring up his first return to horror since 2004’s Dawn of the Dead, the dinos are still roaring along in the latest chapter of the Jurassic World franchise, and Netflix is just generally jam-packed with new releases this month!

On the heels of the HBO Max debut of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the filmmaker brings his touch to a new streaming service with the debut of the action-packed zombie movie Army of the Dead. As for those dinos, Netflix and DreamWorks’ animated series Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous is already back for Season 3, just a few months after Season 2 dropped earlier this year. (If you’re looking for more family-friendly dinosaurs, the first two Land Before Time movies are also arriving on Netflix this month).

Speaking of quick turnarounds, one of Netflix’s biggest breakouts of the year, the Spanish-language murder mystery Who Killed Sara?, is already back for Season 2, less than two months after the first season debuted. Meanwhile, the wait is finally over for Lucifer fans, with Part 2 of Season 5 premiering at the end of the month.

And that’s really just scratching the surface of what’s new on Netflix this month. For the full details, check out the full list of new movies and shows below, along with their announced premiere dates.
