new shows

September has a list of much-anticipated shows–we’re looking at you The Rings of Power and The Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives.

And of course, there’s more to add to your watch list. From nail-biting true crime documentaries and grand fantasy dramas to action-packed series filled with punches and punchlines, bookmark all the new shows and films releasing on Netflix, Disney+Hotstar, and Amazon Prime Video in the first half of September.

1. Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives Season 2

2. The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power

The highly anticipated fantasy series featuring elves, dwarves, orcs and humans is set to release this week. Created by J.D Payne, The Rings of Power is set thousands of years before the events of both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. It centres around significant events in the Middle-Earth Second Age including the fall of Númenor. Get ready to go back to an era where kingdoms rose to glory and fell to ruin with unlikely heroes being tested. One of the greatest villains, which came out of Tolkien’s ink, will threaten to cover all the world in darkness. The ensemble cast includes Morfydd Clark as Galadriel, Benjamin Walker as Gil-Galad, Cynthia Addai-Robinson as Míriel, Robert Aramayo as Elrond, Owain Arthur as Durin IV, Nazanin Boniadi as Bronwyn, Charles Edwards as Celebrimbor, Sophia Nomvete as Princess Disa, and Charlie Vickers as Halbrand, among several others. Needless to say, we’re itching to watch this one.

3. Cobra Kai Season 5

Cobra Kai never dies! But after watching how season 4 ended with Terry Silver taking over Cobra Kai and expanding his ‘No Mercy’ style right after the All Valley Tournament, we wouldn’t mind watching his reign end with the karate group. After Johnny quits as a sensei, he and his son Robby go on a road trip in search of Miguel who leaves home to find out who his father is. And we would like to know more about this too. This leaves Daniel LaRusso turning to his foe-turned-friend Chozen to help take down Cobra Kai. We are expecting more intense action sequences in Cobra Kai Season 5 as Johnny rightly says in the trailer, ” We need to get our hands dirty.” And if it’s Terry they’re up against, we wouldn’t mind watching the Miyagi-do and Eagle Fang teaming up and adopting the No Mercy style too.

5. Chef’s Table: Pizza

If you’ve watched the OG Chef’s Table on Netflix and salivated every time you watched a Michelin star chef plate a beautiful dish, then you’ll enjoy this version too. As the name suggests, Chef’s Table: Pizza showcases the best pizzas from around the world prepared by 6 pizza masters who bake passion, creativity and hard work in every slice. Our suggestion while watching this show: place an order for a pizza from the nearest delivery kitchen because when those cravings set in after watching the lovely pizzas on screen, you’ll actually want something to satiate them.
