Apple TV+ has certainly made a case for itself since its launch, especially with shows like The Morning Show, For All Mankind, Severance, and, of course, Ted Lasso. But in this day and age of “content,” there can never be too much to watch. Which is why September is playing host to a whole bunch of brand new series premieres for Apple’s video streaming service.
As is par for the course, Fridays are the days Apple premieres new shows and films. That’s no different this month, and we’ll see new premieres every single Friday in September. So, without any delay, let’s take a look at what’s launching this September for Apple TV+.
