‘Game of Thrones’ just ended, and it is time to find ourselves a new obsession. Let’s return to our very trustworthy Netflix, shall we? September, in particular, looks like a month for the return of amazing serie—not only Netflix originals but also a few foreign productions. This month is particularly golden for all those who wish to enjoy well-made documentaries. We are restricting this list to shows and documentaries, do let us know in the comments below if you need a list of movies as well.
Netflix is finally coming up with the new season of ‘BoJack Horseman’ in September. Regardless of whether you are into animated series or not, this show is the funniest and most honest thing you will ever watch. This season although does seem to have taken a dramatic turn as our beloved alcoholic horse seems to have disappeared but we will hold our judging horses for the premiere.
Speaking of drama, you can’t miss the Colombian crime drama, ‘Narcos’. The highlight of this season is going to be Cali Cartel. We have high hopes for this season.
In the fresh series front, ‘American Vandal’, an eight part half-hour satirical adaptation of crime documentaries has all the balls in its court, pun intended. It is about the time when a high school prank went too far and vandalized twenty-seven faculty cars with phallic images. September is also bringing us Jack Whitehall and his father’s Southeast Asia trip, ‘Travels with My Father’ hitting Netflix on September 22 is a show where Jack Whitehall, a British Comedian takes his father on a trip with the hope of strengthening their bond. ‘There is nothing more foreign than Family’ if you feel the message, join the two boys on this adventure.
On the other hand, there is ‘Club de Cuervos’, a family drama where the recently orphaned siblings battle to determine who will gain control of their soccer team. ‘The Expanse: Season 2′ is a show about the politics of humanity colonizing Mars and living in the Asteroid Belt and beyond while offering enough high-octane action for a variety of sci-fi fans. If the only criteria you have to watch a show is entertainment then you have definitely got to watch RuPaul’s ‘Drag Race: Season 9′. We haven’t seen anything so effortlessly sassy.
Now let’s talk about the bag full of documentaries Netflix is offering us this September.
‘Who The F**ck Is That Guy?’ tells the tale of Michael Alago, a New York native and an icon in the music business. ‘Gaga: Five Foot Two’, where we get to watch BTS (behind the scenes) of Lady Gaga’s life over an eight-month period.
‘Fire Chasers’ is an eye-opener which follows firefighters as they try to fight seasonal wildfires in California, and how man-made choices have impacted their work. ‘The Confession Tapes’ is a crime documentary focused on decoding the reasons why people retracted their confessions.
You are specially blessed if you are a fan of comedy. Netflix has collected some of the biggest names in comedy for specials. Jerry Seinfeld will launch his first special after his Netflix deal earlier this year for which he is allegedly paid 100 Million dollars. Ventriloquist Jeff Dunham also got his own feature. Marc Maron, comedian, actor and host of the WTF podcast debuts his hour-long Netflix special.
