The next 10 episodes of the popular romantic drama “Virgin River” will be available on Netflix on Sept. 7. Season 5 promises a break-up, a goodbye, a wildfire that threatens the town and more. If you’re in for a penny, you’re in for a pound with this series. The relentless turbulence and blazing passion make it a must-see. If you’re behind, make sure you binge the first four seasons so you are ready. And if 10 episodes aren’t enough, the holiday fare drops on Nov. 30.
This season of the popular coming-of-age comedy, “Sex Education,” picks up with Otis and Eric on their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. The new environment is rather confusing to Otis and Eric because it has daily yoga, a communal garden and popular kids that are surprisingly kind. The season is eight episodes long, and it is filled with new challenges and new frontiers that help keep the series fresh and intriguing. Episodes drop on Sept. 21.

“Castlevania: Nocturne” is a new animated horror series on Netflix that takes place in France during the height of the French Revolution.
