At his California streaming event, Apple CEO Tim Cook debuted an avalanche of new trailers for upcoming Apple TV Plus shows and movies. Among them were some real heavy hitters like The Morning Show Season 2, The Foundation, and Jon Stewart’s new TV show, The Problem with Jon Stewart.
Not only did we take a closer look at the upcoming material, we also got some important release dates for Jon Stewart (September 30), Finch (November 5) and The Shrink Next Door (November 12).
Until these shows come out, there’s plenty to see on the service — like Ted Lasso Season 2 which is just weeks away from ending — watch Jason Momoa and Mr. Corman starring Joseph Gordon Levitt.
Not sure where to start with Apple TV Plus? Here’s your guide to all the new stuff coming into service over the next few months — and some of the shows that just came out that deserve your attention.
Coming soon to Apple TV Plus
The Morning Show season 2 (September 17)
The flagship show of Apple TV Plus is returning for its second season on September 17. After taking home several Emmy Noms in its first season, The Morning Show easily has some of the highest caliber material in Apple’s arsenal and features big names like Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. A newsroom drama from the show that unfolds after one of its original anchors (played by Steve Carell) is caught in a scandal. This is a primetime drama that you can watch anytime, anywhere on Apple TV Plus.
Foundation (September 24)
For fans of science fiction, it’s going to be a great few months for shows and movies. While big screen fans will get to see Frank Herbert’s Dune in theaters and on HBO Max, small screen owners will be able to watch Isaac Asimov’s original Foundation series on Apple TV Plus starting September 24th. Asimov’s flagship series could make for some intense (but enjoyable) reading — so we’re very curious to see how Apple’s adaptation lives up to the books.
The Problem With Jon Stewart (September 30)
there should probably be a comma The Problem With Jon Stewart The longtime TV host has a better description of the new series. A talk show that eschews The Daily Show, Stewart will attempt to tackle some of today’s biggest issues with his signature satirical comedic style that’s both downright hilarious as well as kind of the average American. It is starting from 30th September.
Finch (November 5)
Some cool shows will make their way to Apple TV Plus in the month of October, but it won’t be until November when the streaming service goes back to pumping out blockbusters. First up is Finch, starring the great Tom Hanks. In what seems like a strange, weird crossover between I Am Legend and Wall-E, Finch stars Hanks, his dog, and a robot as they explore the devastated remains of a planet that – in all likelihood – is planet Earth when we All its natural resources are cut off. It might be a little overwhelming for our liking, but under Hanks’ leadership we’re ready to give it a shot on November 5.
Shrink Next Door (November 12)
The biggest movie on the docket for Apple TV Plus is The Shrink Next Door, a drama starring Paul Rudd and Will Ferrell. In it, Rudd plays a psychologist on a mission to help set the boundaries of Ferrell’s character. Those limits are clearly crossed over time as his therapy turns into basketballs, long hugs, and a walk in the park, but we’re hoping the results are heartwarming and/or scary, rather than sad and/or scary. Will be fun We will figure out some way or the other when the film closes on November 12.
What to watch on Apple TV Plus right now
Ted Lasso (Season 2 Available Now)
If you walk out of here remembering one of our recommendations, make it a Ted Lasso. The Really Beautiful series starring Jason Sudeikis as Coach Lasso threw us for a few ends in the first season, but the second season has shown us that wounds heal with time and that family is really the people we are Liked, not with whom we want to be. born with. The show’s second season is coming to an end soon, but now is an equally good time to start, if you haven’t yet seen Ted Lasso’s magic on Apple TV Plus.
Mr. Corman (Season 1 Available Now)
Apple and Disney are both impressed with music teachers this year. While the spirit of Disney and Pixar showed us the power of music as a cornerstone of our lives, Mr. Corman shows us the opposite – basically what happens when someone with musical talent doesn’t put it to the best of their abilities. The result is a drama that is a rollercoaster of laughs and depression as we watch actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt struggle with his life choices and postponing a dream.
Mythic Quest (Season 2 Available Now)
Take It’s Always Sunny’s dysfunctional family in Philadelphia, put them in charge of the video game developer and voila! You have a Mythic Quest. While the premise sounds completely and utterly ridiculous, the results are… well, they’re ridiculous, too. What makes Mythic Quest great is its amazing cast of characters, pitch-perfect satire of the game industry, and some extensive character arcs that are as epic as the title suggests. We highly recommend watching both the seasons of the show.
Elephant Queen (Available Now)
Even if you don’t fancy yourself much of an animal documentary fan, The Elephant Queen is a fine cinema. Following the life of an elephant named Athena and narrated by Chiwetel Ejiofor, this acclaimed documentary was nominated for Best Science/Nature Documentary and Best Narration in 2019 when it was released and won at the Cinema for Peace Awards had gone. If you don’t have enough pachyderms for the day, we also highly recommend watching The Elephant (2020) on Disney Plus, narrated by none other than Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and downright phenomenal as well.
