Guess I'll take the plunge and sign up for Hulu to watch "The First" on Sept. 14. It looks fantastic.

Yes, I'll probably check it out too.

Premieres Friday, September 14
"(from Hulu's press release, August 2018) Sean Penn leads an ensemble cast in this near-future drama about a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first humans on Mars. Under the direction of visionary aerospace magnate Laz Ingram (Natascha McElhone), the crew contends with peril and personal sacrifice as they undertake the greatest pioneering feat in human history."

I'm also going to check out these shows

Premieres Wednesday, September 26

(from ABC's press release, May 2018) They say friendship isn't one big thing, it's a million little things; and that's true for a group of friends from Boston who bonded under unexpected circumstances. Some have achieved success, others are struggling in their careers and relationships, but all of them feel stuck in life. After one of them dies unexpectedly, it's just the wake-up call the others need to finally start living. Along the way, they discover that friends may be the one thing to save them from themselves.

It sounds like ABC's answer to "This is Us" and that would be OK if it's the same caliber.  I'm checking it out mainly because of David Giuntoli -- he starred in Grimm -- I was a big fan.

And, since I was a fan of "Kevin probably Saves the World" (which was cancelled), I'm going to check out...

Premieres Sunday, September 30

(from CBS's press release, May 2018) GOD FRIENDED ME stars Brandon Micheal Hall in a humorous, uplifting drama about Miles Finer (Hall), an outspoken atheist whose life is turned upside down when he receives a friend request on social media from God and unwittingly becomes an agent of change in the lives and destinies of others around him. After repeated pokes by God, Miles' curiosity takes over, and he accepts the ultimate friend req.uest and follows the signs to Cara Bloom (Violett Beane), an online journalist. Brought together by the "God Account," the two find themselves investigating God's friend suggestions and inadvertently helping others in need. Miles is set on getting to the bottom of what he believes is an elaborate hoax, but in the meantime he'll play along and, in the process, change his life forever.

But this is the one that really grabs my attention.

Premieres Friday, October 5

(from Hulu's press release, August 2018) In partnership with Blumhouse Television, Into The Dark is a horror event series from prolific, award-winning producer, Jason Blum's independent TV studio. The series includes 12 super-sized episodes, with a new installment released each month inspired by a holiday and will feature Blumhouse's signature genre/thriller spin on the story.

Returns Tuesday, September 25

Returns Sunday, October 7

Returns Thursday, October 11

Returns Friday, October 26

Returns in January 2019 (Exact Date TBA)
I had to hunt this down.  I expected it to return in September sometime.  I'm wondering if they've cut the usual 22 episodes down to 12 or 13?

Other programs I'll be checking out this month

Premieres Friday, October 12
(from Netflix's press release, August 2018) A modern reimagining of Shirley Jackson's iconic novel, The Haunting of Hill House explores a group of siblings who, as children, grew up in what would go on to become the most famous haunted house in the country. Now adults, and forced back together in the face of tragedy, the family must finally confront the ghosts of their past -- some of which still lurk in their minds while others may actually be stalking the shadows of Hill House. Created, directed and executive-produced by horror mastermind Mike Flanagan (Hush, Oculus, Gerald's Game), The Haunting of Hill House is a complex family drama wrapped in a chilling horror story.

and because it's Nathan Fillion

Premieres Tuesday, October 16
(from ABC's press release, May 2018) Starting over isn't easy, especially for small-town guy John Nolan who, after a life-altering incident, is pursuing his dream of being an LAPD officer. As the force's oldest rookie, he's met with skepticism from some higher-ups who see him as just a walking midlife crisis. If he can't keep up with the young cops and the criminals, he'll be risking lives including his own. But if he can use his life experience, determination and sense of humor to give him an edge, he may just become a success in this new chapter of his life.

Premieres Sunday, October 21
(from PBS's press release, July 2018) When a young man encounters a ghostly woman dressed all in white on a moonlit road, he is drawn into a web of intrigue that will transform his life forever. Offering his assistance to this distressed, spectral woman, he is later shocked to discover that she had just escaped from a nearby insane asylum.

Premieres Wednesday, October 24
Madden plays David Budd, a war veteran-turned-cop and special protection officer who is assigned to guard Home Secretary Julia Montague (Hawes), who is targeted by mysterious assassins. Sunday’s denouement was hugely anticipated in the U.K., with the series achieving the rare feat of running weekly and becoming genuine water-cooler TV. The BBC launched the first three episodes on its iPlayer service when the series opener went out via regular broadcast, but the show ran in weekly installments thereafter.

The first episode has become the most-requested ever on iPlayer and the closer helped drive the streaming and catchup service’s biggest ever day, with 12.3 million program requests.

The final part ran to an extended 75 minutes. Series creator Jed Mercurio, whose crime series “Line of Duty” was also a hit, told BBC radio Friday that conversations with the pubcaster about a second season are just beginning. “We know that people out there are loving Series 1 and that there would be an appetite for Series 2, but we’ll just have to wait and see,” he said.

Speaking Monday about the colossal ratings, he said he was “completely stunned by the exceptional response to ‘Bodyguard.'” Simon Heath, CEO of World Productions added: “At a time when we’re told that linear TV is dying, it’s been thrilling to see the number of viewers flocking to watch ‘Bodyguard’ live.”

Netflix will drop all six episodes globally outside the U.K., including in the U.S., on Oct. 24.


Premieres Wednesday, October 31
(from CBS's press release, August 2018) CBS All Access announced today its upcoming psychological thriller series, TELL ME A STORY, will premiere on Wednesday, Oct. 31. Following the premiere, new episodes will drop weekly on Thursdays. TELL ME A STORY's 10-episode first season will be available on demand weekly on Thursdays exclusively for CBS All Access subscribers. The announcement was made by Julie McNamara, Executive Vice President, Original Content, CBS All Access, at CBS' biannual Television Critics Association presentation. In addition, a sneak peek trailer for TELL ME A STORY was shown during the series' TCA panel which featured a conversation with executive producer Kevin Williamson and cast members Billy Magnussen (Nick), Dania Ramirez (Hannah), Danielle Campbell (Kayla), Dorian Missick (Sam) and Davi Santos (Gabe). TELL ME A STORY takes the world's most beloved fairy tales and reimagines them as a dark and twisted psychological thriller. Set in modern-day New York City, the first season of this serialized drama interweaves "The Three Little Pigs," "Little Red Riding Hood" and "Hansel and Gretel" into an epic and subversive tale of love, loss, greed, revenge and murder. The cast of TELL ME A STORY includes James Wolk, Billy Magnussen, Dania Ramirez, Danielle Campbell, Dorian Missick, Michael Raymond-James, Davi Santos, Sam Jaeger, Zabryna Guevara with Paul Wesley and Kim Cattrall.

Premieres Friday, November 2
(from Amazon's press release, July 2018) Here's your first look at Prime Video's upcoming mind-bending psychological thriller, Homecoming, starring Julia Roberts and directed by Sam Esmail (Creator of Mr. Robot). Homecoming premieres 11/2 on Prime Video. Heidi Bergman is a caseworker at Homecoming, a Geist Group facility helping soldiers transition to civilian life. Years later she has started a new life, living with her mother and working as a waitress, when a Department of Defense auditor questions why she left the Homecoming facility. Heidi quickly realizes that there's a whole other story behind the story she's been telling herself.

awww man, it's all over. I guess makes sense, most of the older characters did already have their story arcs. They'd have to bring in a whole new cast to keep it fresh.

I read that Netflix canceled Iron Fist and Luke Cage.   Iron Fist - good riddance, but Luke Cage?  That's a shame.

So CBS is going to do a limited series for The Stand.  More here.  Projected release date 2020.

The Stand is probably my all time favourite book.  I think I've probably read it 10 times.  Hopefully the tv series does the book justice.
