This is a month of endings.
September is a very exciting month for TV shows. Lots of new series like Foundation and Midnight Mass will satiate those of us craving something original, but the rest of us already invested in shows like Money Heist and Lucifer will have to bid our favourites adieu for good. Disney+ has cooked up a new Star Wars anime series for fans to enjoy, and Sex Education is finally back. Finally. There’s a little something for everyone here!
Here’s everything new worth watching in September 2021:
The gang has been in the Bank of Spain for over 100 hours and the Professor is at risk. To make matters worse, a new adversary is coming: the army. I feel like there were a solid few years where Money Heist absolutely dominated the conversation with the launch of every new season, and that makes the debut of its final batch of episodes feel like quite the event. If you want to see how the story ends for this gang, you might want to catch up!
While Neil Patrick Harris is off exploring the Matrix, his old series is getting revived on Disney+. With a Hawaiian setting this time around, the series follows Lahela ‘Doogie’ Kamealoha, a teenaged wunderkind who juggles a high school life with an astonishingly early medical career. Props to her for doing it all.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead never fails to entertain, so dropping her into a no-holds-barred frantically paced action movie set in Japan feels like a good way to get people to tune in. After an assassin (Winstead) is poisoned, she has less than 24 hours to get revenge on her enemies and somehow stumbles into an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims while doing so. Sky High sequel when?
Between Lucifer and Money Heist, it feels like this is a month of painful farewells for Netflix subscribers. We last saw Lucifer in a rather… holy place last season, which sets the ex-devil up for some interesting stories. Will Ella find out the truth? Will all these characters get the happy endings they may or may not deserve? Time will tell.
If you’ve been following the Pokemon anime series, its latest iteration is about to hit Netflix. The main trio continues to adventure through the world of Pokemon, with Ash training to climb to higher rankings in the World Coronation Series, Goh working to complete his Pokedex and Chloe taking her very first steps as a trainer. It looks like Suicune makes an appearance in Part 1, which is something to look forward to for fans of the Johto era.
