Amazon Prime Video’s September programming is slightly leaner than previous months, but there are still plenty of masterpieces to be found. Following its June theatrical secrete, Mindy Kaling and Emma Thompson’s, about two women finding their plaza in the killer late-night talk show world, becomes available for streaming. From BoJack Horseman creator Raphael Bob-Waksberg comes Amazon original Undone, an animated line following 28 -year-old Alma, who explores the elasticity of age and world after a near-fatal car crash. If you crave something a little lighter, hold out for Legally Blonde or Saturday Night Fever at the end of the month.

If superheroes are going to dominate favourite culture, then we at least deserve satire that’s as artistic and interesting as The Boys. A partnership between slapstick Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and Supernatural creator Eric Kripke, the line follows a group of human vigilantes trying to take down infect superheroes. The Boys simultaneously parodies the military-industrial complex and Hollywood monoculture, but it’s also a great superhero show in its own right. The boys’ club writing predispositions and grisly form will turn some people off, but for the most part, The Boys sucker-punches the superhero genre with a winking and a smile. — Brenden Gallagher
Phoebe Waller-Bridge’s Fleabag has returned for a second and likely final season that is equal proportions heartbreaking and amusing. Set one year after season 1, Waller-Bridge’s titular protagonist is still grappling with the death of her best friend, Boo, and divulging the fourth wall to address the audience. But this season also presents a brand-new charity interest for Fleabag: a pastor( Andrew Scott) who is marrying her dad and stepmom, which is especially whimsical considering Fleabag is an atheist. Fleabag season 2 is a bittersweet goodbye to the audience, and a poignant portrait of women and the choices they face.–Tiffany Kelly
Esme Creed-Miles contributes a compelling execution as Hanna, a teenage girl on the run from the CIA, in this thriller miniseries that coalesces Jason Bourne action with teen drama. Hanna may not be too exciting for diehard devotees of the original movie, which benefitted from its aesthetic elegance and offbeat feeling. But if you’re looking for a mainstream activity thriller with a compelling emotional core, you’ve come to the right place. — Gavia Baker-Whitelaw
