‘Goliath’ Season 4
Starts the stream: September 24
Billy Bob Thornton bids farewell to one of the best characters of his career with the fourth and final season of “Goliath,” a California legal drama inspired by film noir. Thornton has spent three seasons playing Billy McBride, formerly a very powerful and vivacious lawyer, and has since been trying to redeem himself, a case that seems unwinnable every time. For this final episode, Billy finds himself in San Francisco, battling his mental, physical, and emotional weaknesses while helping a major law firm win a potential billion-dollar deal against some opioid-dealing drug companies. Once again, a supporting cast of aces (including series regular Nina Arianda and newcomers Bruce Dern, Jena Malone, JK Simmons, and Elias Koteas) work brilliantly to deliver a moody and complex mystery with juicy twists.

‘Come from afar’
Starts the stream: September 10
Two national tragedies – September 11, 2001, the terrorist attacks and the COVID-19 pandemic – star in this recording of the Tony Award-winning musical “Come From Away,” filmed in front of a movie theater at a Broadway theater earlier this year. A specially selected live audience of emergency responders, healthcare workers and 9/11 survivors. The show is a cohesive and impressionistic documentary of a true story from that day, chronicling the moments of kindness and connection that occur as they deal with more than 7,000 passengers from planes diverted to the airport of the friendly Canadian small town of Gander in Newfoundland. Both a creative piece of journalism and an emotional tribute to a difficult time, “Come From Away” is cathartic entertainment that softens the heartbreak with hope.
‘The Foundation’ Season 1
Starts the stream: September 24
One of the most influential sci-fi series of all time, Isaac Asimov’s “The Foundation” is as current as the 1940s and 50s when the original book trilogy was written. The showy-looking TV version, long in development, embraces modern parallels. Jared Harris plays the brilliant mathematician Hari Seldon, who distorts the numbers and determines that the thousands of years old galactic empire will lead to irreversible collapse and 30,000 years of chaos in a few centuries. But this chaos can only be reduced to 1000 years if society takes urgent steps to preserve its knowledge and culture. Series creators David S. Goyer and Josh Friedman tell a story spanning multiple planets and decades, but ultimately how ordinary human frailties and fears sometimes prevent us from fulfilling our greatest ambitions.

‘Doogie Kamealoha, MD’ Season 1
Starts the stream: September 8
This remake of the ’90s family drama “Doogie Howser, MD” takes the action from Los Angeles to Hawaii and transforms the protagonist from a teenage boy to a teenage girl (played by Disney Channel favorite Peyton Elizabeth Lee). But the premise remains the same: What if a child genius finishes college and medical school early and becomes a licensed doctor at 16? Like the original, this new “Doogie” is a growing up story about a precocious boy who discovers that knowing too much about how to fix human bodies doesn’t fully prepare him for more adult issues like romantic heartbreak and the workplace. troubles.

‘What We Do In The Shadows’ Season 3
Starts the stream: September. 3
This hilarious horror mockup did a great job last year, expanding on the show’s original concept from the cast and writers: a Staten Island version of the 2014 New Zealand movie about vampire roommates. “What We Do in the Shadows” is still an episodic sitcom, with each episode telling its own story. However, the larger arc that began to evolve in Season 2 continues in Season 3 as this group of lazy bloodsuckers and their cunning human assistant Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) find themselves facing new opportunities. While the characters now have richer backstories – filled with bizarre, age-old grudges – this show’s primary asset is still their performance, as some hilarious actors are responding with frictional irritation to the paranormal frenzy that surrounds them.
‘Y: The Last Man’ Season 1
Starts the stream: September 13
The Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra comic series “Y: The Last Man” has been in development for over a decade, first for the movie and then for the TV. There’s good reason why the producers of the project are so persistent: “Y” has an irresistibly juicy premise that depicts a society where the apocalypse has killed every mammal with a Y chromosome except one. Comics are also full of memorable characters and exciting plots. This version preserves both the gripping story and the captivatingly eclectic cast, including protagonist Yorick Brown (Ben Schnetzer). But show lead writer Eliza Clark also updated the original’s exploration of gender roles.
