It's hard to continue to be in denial that the summer is over now that school is in full swing, work is busier than ever and you can't escape seeing everything pumpkin spice-flavored in stores and restaurants. It's only a matter of time before the sweaters and Ugg boots come out in full force, too.

So between decorating for Halloween and carving pumpkins, one of the best ways to keep it all together before the holidays is to take some time out to relax with some good, old-fashioned entertainment - well, when it comes to the modern, digital age.

That means getting ready to stream all the new titles premiering on the three major platforms this month. Kick off your cowboy boots after a day of hayrides and stream part two of The Ranch, season one, or get your scream on with The Blair Witch Project on Hulu. Prime members can also get their gore on with Sharknado: The 4th Awakens or purchase Finding Dory on Amazon Video.

Here's a rundown of the best titles to stream on Netflix, Hulu and Prime Video in October.


While Netflix's original series The Ranch (which gave us a mini That '70s Show cast reunion) returns to the platform on Oct. 7, other series worth streaming include season two of The Flash, season four of Arrow and season two of iZombie, all of which will be available the first week of the month.

If you are feeling like going for a good chick flick, then stream A Cinderella Story, Titanic or How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days on the first. Then again, you could always just let Justin Timberlake serenade you when his concert debuts on Oct. 12.

Those looking for something more spooky can stream American Horror Story: Hotel on Oct. 4 or the fist half of Black Mirror, season three on Oct. 21.

Hulu is allowing users to stream a complete Smallville marathon when it releases all 10 seasons of the series on the first. Then, on Oct. 12, it will add the season premieres of NBC's Chicago Fire and ABC's Fresh Off the Boat and The Middle.

Make sure to watch blockbusters like Spectre on Oct. 21, or go the Halloween route with The Blair Witch Project, Sleepy Hollow and The Amityville Horror on the first or Return to Halloweentown on Oct 18.

Prime Video / Amazon Video

Prime Video subscribers will want to tune in to movies like Tucker & Dale vs Evil, V/H/S and Joyride if they want to be spooked starting on the first. Two new Amazon original series will also debut this month: Complete Unknown on Oct. 27 and Good Girls Revolt the next day, with both being buzzed about.

Anyone can purchase titles like new episodes of The Walking Dead from Amazon Video on Oct. 27, as well as Supergirl on Oct. 11 and The Flash on Oct. 5.
