Congratulations! You’ve made it to September. This year has been a roller coaster for everyone, but as we collectively flip the page on the calendar and usher in the beginning of autumn (depending on where you live, the weather may or may not reflect this), it’s important to remember that even though this hasn’t been the year most of us expected, there has been plenty of excellent TV to pass the time.
That’s why our staff has curated dozens upon dozens of recommendation lists to help you find the best shows and movies for you to watch next. Whether you’re hoping to find a rom-com to sweep you off your feet, a sci-fi show that will allow you escape, or a lavish historical drama to whisk you away to another time altogether, the comprehensive list below features a bit of everything to help you get through this difficult time.
