New on HBO Now: All the Movies and TV Coming in September

Summer is on its last legs, and the impending onset of fall is bringing with it a new batch of enticing movies and TV on HBO’s standalone streaming platform, HBO Now. From Oscar-winning feature films to compelling television programs new and old, HBO’s September slate has a whole lot to offer, so let’s take a quick look at the highlights before we dig into the list, shall we?

Several of HBO’s most exciting additions on the way fall into the film category, with Guillermo del Toro’s Best Picture-winning creature feature fairy tale The Shape of Water leading the way—that starts streaming on Sept. 22. Folks on the internet have had plenty of fun at this flick’s expense, namely due to its focus on protagonist Elisa’s (Sally Hawkins) sexual (and romantic!) relationship with a strapping fish man, but it’s a genuinely lovely story, likely to enchant del Toro fans and newcomers to the filmmaker’s oeuvre alike. Other theatrical premieres include Oscar-nominated family adventure film Ferdinand (Sept. 1), Universal’s ill-fated The Mummy reimagining (Sept. 2), rose-colored P.T. Barnum bio-drama The Greatest Showman (Sept. 8), singing competition franchise flick Pitch Perfect 3 (Sept. 15) and, most exciting of all, Daniel Day-Lewis’ final film: Paul Thomas Anderson’s meticulously crafted romantic drama Phantom Thread (Sept. 29). And not to be overlooked are numerous older titles on the way, including 1999 Billy Crystal/Robert De Niro comedy Analyze This, three Bring It On films, Judd Apatow dramedy Funny People, Martin Scorsese’s mob classic Goodfellas, 1956’s Oscar-winning The King and I, Brendan Fraser-starring The Mummy and The Mummy Returns, Guy Ritchie’s 2009 take on Sherlock Holmes and Tim Burton’s Oscar-nominated stop-motion tale Corpse Bride, all of which start streaming on Sept. 1.

Admittedly, it’s not TV … it’s HBO. But we’ll move on to the pay-cable channel’s television additions nonetheless, highlighted by the premiere of a bold new series and the second installment of an acclaimed returning series. The former is Miss Sherlock, a Japanese reimagining of the adventures of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s beloved 19th-century sleuth Sherlock Holmes, set in modern-day Tokyo. The series makes its HBO debut on Sept. 1, followed soon after by the return of George Pelecanos’ and David Simon’s The Deuce, a promising sophomore drama set in a porn and prostitution-centric corner of 1970s New York City. The James Franco- and Maggie Gyllenhaal-starring series returns for its second season on Sept. 9. Elsewhere in TV, the finale of HBO Sports docuseries Hard Knocks: Training Camp with the Cleveland Browns airs on Sept. 4, the rookie season of Terence Nance’s innovative variety show Random Acts of Flyness concludes on Sept. 7, all seven seasons of Robert Wuhl sports comedy series Arli$$ hit on Sept. 14 and last but far from least, Issa Rae’s acclaimed Insecure wraps its third season on Sept. 30.

That’s it for HBO Now’s incoming title highlights—as for the outgoing, a handful of worthwhile films are leaving the streamer, so you may want to carve out some couch time over the impending holiday weekend. Sept. 30 sees the departure of numerous films from the Die Hard and Alien franchises, including: Alien (Director’s Cut) (2012), Aliens (1986), Alien 3 (1992) and Alien Resurrection (1997); and Die Hard (1988), Die Hard 2 (1990) and Die Hard with a Vengeance (1995). Bad Boys II, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe, The French Connection, Kindergarten Cop, Logan, National Lampoon’s Animal House and Wargames are also on their way out, among others, so plan your day off accordingly.
