New seasons of Castlevania AND Big Mouth? I'm not leaving my house.

It's almost the end of October, but there are still new things rolling out on Netflix. As per usual, this month brought with it a wide variety of new movies, TV shows, and originals to the streaming service. Whether you're looking ahead or at what's been added recently, there's a lot to take in; below, we've rounded up some of the highlights from throughout October 2018. We also finally have a list of what's coming to Netflix in November; suffice it to say, you won't be lacking things to watch.

As for October, returning for a second season is the adult animated comedy Big Mouth. Comedians Nick Kroll and John Mulaney star as two adolescent boys going through puberty. The raunchy series has the duo trying to understand life, girls, and everything else while dealing with hormone monsters and uncomfortable moments in early sexuality. It's out now.

Now Playing: Best Netflix Releases Of October 2018: New Movies And TV Shows To Watch

Speaking of returning Netflix originals, Castlevania Season 2 has debuted. The series follows Trevor Belmont as he fights the evil forces of Dracula. Season 1 writer Warren Ellis returns, picking up on the huge cliffhanger from last year with Alucard. This season will add more episodes for a total of eight, doubling up from Season 1's four.

As far as movies and television go, October 1 saw Netflix release most of its content. Out of everything that hit that day, you'll want to watch/rewatch the classic '80s adventure movie The NeverEnding Story or the first rated-R Marvel movie that matters--sorry, Dolph Lundgren's The Punisher--Blade. Additionally, Blade II will be available as well. Also, Season 4 of Gotham is coming to Netflix as well, and you can see just how crazy this series has become for yourself.

Sadly, there are a few great items leaving the service as well. The fantastic comedy series Freaks and Geeks left on October 1, along with Sin City and The Lost Boys. Even though Halloween is right around the corner, The Babadook is headed out on October 14 and V/H/S 2 leaves on October 24.

Check out the complete list of everything coming and going from Netflix below, and if you're looking for more news from streaming services, we have complete October arrivals lists from Hulu and Amazon Prime Video as well.
