With the summer quickly coming to an end, we’re still singing “summer, summer, summertime” (In our best Will Smith voices of course) and we’re belting notes all the way to the couch! With fall trying to creep its way in, Netflix and Chill is still keeping things hot! With the release of blockbuster hits like The Matrix, and fan favorites like Jackie Brown, Netflix is bound to have you stuck to your cushion! Here’s a quick look at what’s dropping on Netflix this Month!
The fourth season of “Being Mary Jane” is now on Netflix, and if you missed it, you might want to quickly catch up. Why? Because it was a whirlwind of a season with Miss Mary Jane Paul. Gabrielle Union and Michael Ealy turn up the heat on this season by throwing themselves in dangerous, yet sexy territory. Mary Jane’s family still can’t stay out the news and her producer Kara, well, she’s just trying to keep up with it all.
The beautiful, three time NAACP award recipient, Nia Long, has been in the entertainment business since the early nineties. She made her film debut in the critically acclaimed film Boyz in the Hood, and has since appeared in numerous movies and making lasting impressions every time. Netflix has done her fans a favor by adding to their roster two of her most family friendly films Are We There Yet? and Are We Done Yet?, starring superstar rapper Ice Cube. If you’re in need of a family film, then check out one of these films.

Shonda Rhimes blew audiences away with her baby “Grey’s Anatomy” 12 years ago, and Netflix has the latest season available for your emotional enjoyment. Season 13 first aired September of last year, ending right before the summer; but no worries! If you’re like me, you’re grateful for Netflix’s speedy update. This season focused on the veteran characters of the show, including fan favorite Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson). A love triangle breaks out between a new surgeon Briggs and sisters Meredith and Maggie, played by actress Kelly McCreary. Dr. Edwards finds herself on the other side of the table and Amelia…well, if you’re a fan, you know how deep these story lines can get! Make sure you catch up before season 14 premieres in September. Here’s a quick peak inside season 13!
