TV Shows We’re Most Excited About this September
September is a huge month for TV. There are over 100 different season premieres occurring across cable and popular streaming websites like Netflix over the next 30 days. From drama, to comedy, to horror, there’s something for everyone this September. We’ve put together an article on just a few that we’re especially looking forward to.
American Horror Story: Apocalypse
American Horror Story has created a cult following over the past 8 seasons. The show consists of a totally different story each season and follows a different theme. Season 8 is going to be a crossover between Season one’s Murder House and Season three’s Coven themes. Executive producer Alexis Martin Woodall teased that “the story begins at the end of the world, and then our world begins”. If you’re looking for a show with scary themes and insane plot twists, definitely check it out. It’s okay if you’re new to the show, because each season presents a totally new plot. No one is going to know more than you after episode one.
This Netflix mockumentary premiered its first season last year and it had us rolling with laughter. A satire of the show “True Crime,” two high school students on the school news team band together to investigate a prank done by a fellow student. The show combines intense music and scenes of putting together clues with interviews of possible suspects. The suspects are dim-witted 16 year olds, and the contradictory energies crack us up every episode. Season two has the investigation team traveling outside of their own high school and picking up a new case. Watch to see your investigative heroes catch “the Turd Burglar.”
The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth
Showtime is premiering the fourth season of The Circus, a documentary television show series that dives into the details of the 2016 political race. This show reveals a more human side to political candidates that we are often unable to see during campaigns. It also touches on everything that a political candidate’s team must account for during an election cycle, and encourages us to empathize with those we are often so critical of. Life on a campaign trail is grueling, and The Circus does well in showing us how. We can’t wait for season four later this month.
I Love You, America
Sarah Silverman’s late night talk show is premiering its second season on Hulu later this month. Silverman’s aim with the show is to “connect with people who may not agree with her through humor, honesty, not taking yourself too seriously and genuine interest in others.” Silverman brings on people that aren’t celebrities, but rather people who can relate to everyday shared experiences. The message is important and the content is hilarious. Silverman’s monologues and filmed sketches are top notch and showcase her ability as a comedy writer. Last season we saw Silverman hang out with a conservative family from Louisiana and a work as a substitute teacher in Brooklyn. We can’t wait to see what Silverman gets into the second time around.
