Oscar winner Hilary Swank’s new mission to Mars drama “Away” premieres Sept. 4 on Netflix.

USA TODAY Handout

Whether you’re looking for something educational for the kids or you’re into documentaries yourself, Netflix has plenty of nonfiction options come September.

Of course, there are rom-coms (like “Love, Guaranteed”), a collection of films (including “I’m Thinking of Ending Things”), kids’ shows (“Jurassic World Camp Cretaceous” is one of many), star-studded dramas (“The Devil All the Time” among them), at least one Ryan Murphy title (“Ratched”), sci-fi series (“Away”) and competition shows (for example, “Sing On!”) to choose from, too.

But the list of new docs should be long enough to last you for a few weeks on its own. Among the new titles of interest: Election Day primer “Whose Vote Counts, Explained,” dreamlike short film “A Love Song for Latasha,” a docuseries about the 1986 Challenger disaster, “Challenger: The Final Flight,” and a documentary about cryo-preservation called “Hope Frozen: A Quest to Live Twice.”

Yes, that’s quite the variety of shows and movies. Keep scrolling to see every single title that’s arriving and leaving Netflix in September. (And here’s what was added/deleted in August.)
