Fall is here, and that means spending time inside binge-ing your favorite movies and shows! We're breaking down all the shows you need to see.

1. 'El Camino'

The highly anticipated Breaking Bad movie, El Camino is giving fans their Jesse Pinkman fix. He’s back as we follow his dramatic escape from captivity – without his partner in crime, Walter White. It’s written and directed by Vince Gilligan, the same guy who brought us the Breaking Bad series. El Camino hits theaters and Netflix October 11.

2. 'Living With Yourself'

If you aren't into the drug lord drama, I'm prescribing a double dose of Paul Rudd in Living with Yourself. He plays a man who tries an experimental spa treatment that goes terribly wrong. The dark comedy hits Netflix on the 18th.

3. 'Castle Rock'

Get in a Halloween mood with Hulu's second season of Castle Rock... And, no, we're not talking about the place in Colorado. Based in the Stephen King multiverse, you better not watch this one alone. With King and J.J. Abrams executive producing this is sure to freak you out on the 23rd.

4. 'Dolemite is My Name'

Eddie Murphy is back with a vengeance in Dolemite Is My Name. He plays Rudy Ray Moore, an iconic pimp in the 1970s. There’s already a ton of Oscar buzz around his role in the film, set for release October 4.

5. 'Watchmen'

The hype is real for HBO’s Watchmen, where superheroes are treated as outlaws. It's based on the graphic novel of the same name. Even if you’re not into superheroes, Oscar and Emmy winner Regina King is in this, along with Jeremy Irons and Don Johnson. Stream it October 20.

6. 'Modern Love'

If you're looking for something lighter, check out Amazon’s Modern Love. Each episode follows a new love story. Anne Hathaway and Tina Fey lead the star-studded cast… need I say more? This one's out October 18.

7. 'Rhythm + Flow'

Lastly, Netflix is breaking into new territory with their first music competition series. Cardi B, T.I. and Chance the Rapper are searching for the next big star in Rhythm + Flow, starting October 9.
