Back-to-school season is great and all, but here at TV Guide, we're more excited about back-to-TV season, which is when you park yourself in front of your TV and make up for all the time you spent away from it this summer. To help you get the most out of your streaming subscriptions to Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, or HBO, we've put together lists of the best shows and movies you can watch on each platform this month. Forget soaking up the sun and start soaking up these great options.

This month features the return of HBO Max's trippy Doom Patrol, FX's very funny What We Do in the Shadows on Hulu, the Amazon Prime Video hit Goliath, and Netflix's farewell to Lucifer. Below, we've gathered the best shows and movies to stream in September on HBO Max, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and Netflix.

HBO Max

The Best Movies and TV Shows on HBO Max in September

The best movies and shows to watch on HBO and HBO Max in September are all about relationships: with your spouse (who may or may not have superpowers), your friends (who also may or may not have superpowers), your family, your night terrors, or some kid you've been hired to shuttle across the desert. That last one probably only applies to Clint Eastwood. In any case, there's something for everyone this September, including Eastwood's Cry Macho, James Wan's Malignant, the new Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain miniseries Scenes from a Marriage, and Season 3 of Doom Patrol.

Here are our picks for HBO and HBO Max in September.

September brings the premieres of The D'Amelio Show — which follows the life and times of TikTok star sisters Charli and Dixie D'Amelio — and Season 3 of FX's What We Do in the Shadows. Hulu is also offering up the second season of Wu-Tang: An American Saga, as well as broadcast favorites like Law & Order: Organized Crime. On the FX on Hulu hub, there are new shows like B.J. Novak's anthology series The Premise and Y: The Last Man, an adaptation of the DC Comics series. -Allison Picurro
