Netflix has announced its coming and going list for the month of September and it includes a 'Between Two Ferns' film with Zach Galifianakis. We have no idea if the film will include Jenkintown-native Bradley Cooper, but we can only hope.

Netflix has released its coming-and-going list of movies and shows September, and the streaming giant is welcoming a slew of original content – including a "Between the Ferns" film and new Sacha Baron Cohen series. 

That's right — Zach Galifianakis' viral fake talk show that made waves on Funny or Die has been reimagined into a full-length film, out on Sept. 20. The basic plot is that Galifianakis is hitting the road to interview celebrities in an attempt to restore his reputation. 

Other original Netflix content includes "The Spy," a Sacha Baron Cohen and Noah Emmerich series, set in the 1960s in Syria. Cohen plays an Israeli clerk turned secret agent.  

If you want something a bit lighthearted, you can catch the Julia Roberts film, "Eat Pray Love" coming to Netflix on Sept. 9. Or maybe you need a little more Keanu (Reeves) in your life, and in that case, "The Lake House," starring Reeves and Sandra Bullock, hits the streaming platform on Sept. 1. 

To all the parents who rely on Netflix to keep your kids busy: There's a lot of quality content leaving Netflix in September. You're going to have to say goodbye to a few Disney classics, including "Hercules," "Mulan," "Stuart Little," and "Pocahontas." Don't worry too much though, the platform will add a few films, like "Open Season," "Igor," and "For The Birds." 

Other titles leaving include Netflix all six seasons of "Parenthood," and Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein favorite, "Portlandia."
