Here are 19 highlights, but there are hundreds of new titles detailed in the tables below.
Comey’s rule (Stan, September 27): It might seem like we’ve all just experienced the public bickering between Donald Trump and former FBI Director James Comey – and we’re still experiencing other parts of that ongoing nightmare – but that hasn’t stopped anyone from analyzing the drama with a new miniseries. Based on Comey’s book, it stars Jeff Daniels as Comey and Brendan Gleeson as Trump.
Raised by wolves (Binge / Foxtel Now, September 3): This flashy science fiction series has an impressive pedigree: it was created by Aaron Guzikowski, who wrote Denis Villeneuve’s 2013 film Prisoners and supported by Ridley Scott, who is one of the executive producers and directed the first two episodes. Set in the future on a new planet, after the destruction of Earth, the androids are tasked with raising human children, but a war for faith has ensued.

PEN15 S2 Part 2 (Stan, September 19th): An underrated gem, PEN15 is a quirky comedy created and starring Maya Erskine and Anna Konkle, who play versions of themselves at 13 with all the embarrassment of puberty, school and unattainable crushes. It is fun and invigorating, full of pathos and authenticity.
The oath (Binge / Foxtel Now, September 20): HBO is banking on the fact that audiences love cult docuseries, and NXIVM has all the right ingredients: a charismatic leader, celebrity followers, and a conspiracy involving sex trafficking and racketeering. Among the people who appear in the series is the ex Dynasty star Catherine Oxenberg trying to save her daughter from the clutches of the group.
Mulan (Disney +, September 4th): Something like an experiment for Disney, Mulan will now be released on premium video on demand via Disney + this month, which is fictional talk because you’ll have to pay extra ($ 34.95) to watch it. With a $ 200 million budget and some extraordinarily large sets, hopefully it will still look great on the TV screen. The live-action version is closer to traditional Chinese legend than to that of a warrior woman than to 90s cartoons.
