All the TV shows coming to Netflix this September
September is such a magical time of year. The trees turn, brightly colored school supplies decorate the shelves of stores across the country, sugary Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes make their triumphant return, and people start to give serious consideration to Halloween costume plans. Above it all looms the spectre of Disney Plus like a demon that manifests only when you say its name.
Before Disney permanently changes our media landscape, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Amazon still have a few new offerings to provide. Drama, comedy, documentaries – it’s all here, and it’s all bingeable . . . and way better than wandering around looking at some dumb trees or going to the store to purchase some dumb school supplies.
We’ve compiled all the TV shows available to binge during September on Netflix to watch while hiding from the seasons changing.
