New To Netflix In September 2019

Winter is nearly over. The sun is starting to pop its little burning head out and the birds are thinking about chirping again. And yet, our thirst to hunker down and devour fresh shows and movies is no less urgent. Thankfully, the crew at Netflix know that they have a content-addicted customer base and were kind enough to yet again deliver us another dose of that sweet, sweet content, baby.

Expect bingeable new original shows and movies galore, from the new thriller series based on the disastrous Fyre Festival, The I-Land to yet another bloody season of The Ranch, there’s more than enough new content to keep even the biggest couch wizards happy. So here it is, straight from us here at Man of Many to you, the good people of Earth – the very best of what’s New To Netflix In September 2019.

ORIGINAL SERIES

Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father: Season 3

Starring Jack Whitehall – one of the weirdest names in comedy today – Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father is just that: a millennial travelling with his bourgeois father. Now that he’s living and working in LA, Jack has invited his father Michael to come and explore the US of A and we’re sure it will be bloody hilarious.

Release date: 6th September 2019 

The Spy

The Spy is set in the 1960s and follows Israeli clerk-turned-secret agent Eli Cohen (Played by Sacha Baron Cohen of all people) as he goes deep undercover inside Syria on a perilous, years-long mission to spy for Mossad – surprisingly this isn’t a comedy, so good luck compart-mentalising the man who brought us Borat with the new serious version.

Release date: 6th September 2019 

Elite: Season 2

Like Gossip Girl if everyone was Chuck Bass and really shit, and with far more hectic-ness and drama, Elite Season 2 is set in the wake of a classmate’s death. Apparently, we can expect a student vanishing, allegiances shifting, and new some new friends “joining the drama” (Severe vom, Netflix press team), and dark secrets that are too difficult to contain.

Release date: 6th September 2019 

The I-Land

Inspired by the fantastic (but also terrible) events of Fyre Festival, The I-Land is a thriller not to be missed. Wiped clean of memories and thrown together, a group of strangers fight to survive harsh realities – and the island that traps them (spooky!). Who knew you couldn’t eat a hashtag or burn an emoji for warmth? ¯\_(“)_/¯

Release date: 12th September 2019 

The Ranch: Part 7

Seriously though, when will this bloody thing end? Sigh. Deep breath. This season, on The Ranch: Colt tries to reconcile with Abby, Beau navigates the challenges of aging and Luke seeks his family’s forgiveness.

Breathe out. Fuck.

Release date: 13th September 2019 

Disenchantment: Part 2

From the creator of The Simpsons, Disenchantment Part 1 was received well by viewers although a small minority found it to be lacking the same punch as Groening’s other two animated powerhouse shows. That said, everyone deserves a second chance.

Disenchantment: Part 2 will focus in on the high-spirited Princess Bean as she walks through hell to save a friend (and knowing this show, we are assuming this is literal), learns about a mystical destiny set for her, and helps restore her father’s kingdom.

Get it, girl.

Release date: 20th September 2019 

TERRACE HOUSE: TOKYO 2019-2020

Titled as if this show has a lot of life in it yet, TERRACE HOUSE: TOKYO will hone in on six strangers who share a fabulous house in Tokyo, looking for love while living under the same roof. Unscripted (apparently), this new reality show will probably be a huge hit. And a great signifier of where we are at as a species. Cheers.

Release date: 10th September 2019 

Unbelievable

Based on very unfortunate real events, Unbelievable kicks off when a teen reports and eventually recants her reported rape – all the while two female detectives, states away, investigate evidence that could reveal the truth.

Release date: 13th September 2019 

The Good Place: Season 4

The brilliant comedy about life, death and the afterlife returns for its fourth and final season – this calls for froyo’s all round.

Release date: 27th September 2019 

ORIGINAL FILM

TALL GIRL

Jodi (Ava Michelle) has always been the tallest girl in school (weird flex, we get it, you’re tall ‘J0Di’) – something she’s always been uncomfortable with. After “slouching her” way through life for 16 years and being made fun of by classmates, Jodi meets Stig (Luke Eisner), a seemingly perfect Swedish foreign exchange student who’s even taller than she is.

Cutting through the epic synopsis that Netflix supplied us, we can confirm that Jodi will find that being tall ain’t such a bad thing when it comes to getting ‘the business’ – however passing through small doorways will always remain a challenge.

Release date: 13th September 2019 

Between Two Ferns: The Movie

Kicking this one right off by stating that this might be just a little bit too meta. Youtube content series into film format just sounds like a recipe for disaster. That said, here we are. Between Two Ferns: The Movie zooms in on Zach Galifianakis as he’s discovered by Will Ferrell on his public access TV show of the same name.

Release date: 20th September 2019 

In the Shadow of the Moon

Serial Killer aficionados, rejoice: Netflix is at it again. In The Shadow Of The Moon follows Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart and his obsession with solving a series of linked crimes. Also starring the fabulous Michael C. Hall, this psychological thriller may just be a cracking flick, so be sure to check it out, content crackheads.

Release date: 27th September 2019 

ORIGINAL COMEDY

Bill Burr: Paper Tiger

Renown comedian Bill Burr delivers a scathing review on the state of the world in his new Netflix stand-up comedy special, Bill Burr: Paper Tiger. Filmed at the Royal Albert Hall in London, England, Burr dives into Michelle Obama’s book tour, the problem with male feminists, his hang-ups on taking a bath, and why his personality is affecting his marriage.

Love him or hate him, he’s got a point so be sure to catch this one.

Release date: 10th September 2019 

Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself

Do you like puppets with arms shoved up their asses? Do you like seeing men do this and speak on behalf of that same puppet? Well, Jeff Dunham’s new standup will surely delight you to no end.

Release date: 24th September 2019 

ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY

Inside Bill’s Brain: Decoding Bill Gates

A new three-part documentary that explores the mind and motivations of celebrated tech visionary, business leader, philanthropist, ‘Clippy’ Senior, and general all-round great bloke, Bill Gates. From his triumphs (like Microsoft Paint) and setbacks (like trying to get rid of Microsoft Paint, how dare you m8), viewers will be treated to real interviews from Bill and Mel to get a better understanding of the mind behind ensuring that digital pinball came with every new Microsoft computer.

What a move, Bill. What a move.
