Every month, tons of new movies and TV shows are being added to the various streaming platforms. This September, we're again spoilt for choice with options - from family drama, investigative features and espionage thrillers to the return of '80s slashers.

With so many different streaming services, it can be hard to keep track of them all— especially if you have subscribed to more than one platform. Hence, we sourced through the internet and curated a list of content coming on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, AltBalaji, and ZEE5 this month.

Amazon Prime

This Is Us Season 4 - 24 September

It might seem like forever since the last season of Mandy Moore, Vilo Ventimiglia's show, This is Ustook over our TV screens. However, it was also in early May, that NBC network announced the renewal of three more seasons of the heartwarming series. The show chronicles the Pearson family across the decades: from Jack (Ventimiglia) and Rebecca (Moore) as young parents in the 1980s to their 37-year-old kids, Kevin (Justin Hartley), Kate (Chrissy Metz) and Randall (Sterling K. Brown) searching for love and fulfillment in the present day. This grounded, life-affirming dramedy reveals how the tiniest events in our lives impact who we become, and how the connections we share with each other can transcend time, distance and even death.

The show is set to premiere from 24 September. Time to keep your Kleenex handy!

Netflix

Bard of Blood - 27 September

Produced by Shah Rukh Khan’s Red Chillies Entertainment, Bard of Blood is a seven-episode high-octane thriller series based on a 2015 book of the same name by Bilal Siddiqi. The show follows ex-communicated RAW agent, Kabir Anand (Emraan Hashmi), who teams up with an agents Isha (Sobhita Dhulipala) and Veer (Vineet Kumar Singh) for a rescue mission in Balochistan.

The Laundromat - 27 September

Directed by Steven Soderbergh, The Laundromat is a dark comedy based on the Panama Papers scandal. The film stars Meryl Streep as a widow who investigates a massive insurance-fraud scheme that’s benefiting a network of super-rich people around the world. An adaptation of Jake Bernstein’s non-fiction book 'Secrecy World', the film follows Streep's character, Ellen Martin, as she lost a great deal of money to Panamanian law firm partners Jurgen Mossack and Ramon Fonseca, portrayed by Gary Oldman and Antonio Banderas respectively.

With Banderas and Oldman sporting garish suits and colourful accents alongside what looks to be another stunning performance from Streep, we think this Netflix feature is worth a shot.

Modern Family Season 11 - 23 September

Fan-favorite family comedy Modern Family is returning for its 11th and final season this September. Created by Steven Levitan and Christopher Lloyd, the sitcom revolving around an extended family has won five consecutive Emmy Awards for best comedy series from 2010 to 2014.  Modern Family has been credited as groundbreaking in its portrayal of a gay couple Mitchell and Cameron — as stable, loving parents of an adopted girl (introduced in Season One). It also examined the concerns of blended families and gave an honest and often hilarious look into the sometimes warm, sometimes twisted workings of contemporary families.

Levitan in an interview to The Hollywood Reporter emphasised that their main focus is to end strong,  “We want to honor the show and honor it in the right way, making the audience really feel like that was a journey worth taking from beginning to end, but there will be buckets of tears as we get there,” he said.
