October maybe perfect for Halloween Horror Nights, but for the rest of us who aren’t as brave, we’d rather stick to our favorite romcoms and animated shows — those free of ghosts and monsters and things that will prevent us from going to the restroom alone late at night.

So, here are the new and upcoming films and series that you can stream on Netflix which are not so scary at all:
