New to Neon in September

Sky continues to invest in premium content for Neon, with the streaming platform next month offering three exclusive premieres and getting the jump on four SoHo properties.

It also will stream the latest seasons of SoHo staples Mayans M.C. and The Deuce day-and-date with the linear channel.

PEN15 (from September 7) is an Emmy-nominated comedy about two 13-year-old outcasts in the Y2K. Maya Erksine (Wine Country) and Anna Konkle (Rosewood) star.

Entertainment Weekly dubbed the highly-acclaimed Hulu comedy “perfect … The 10-episode debut season makes every familiar adolescent milestone feel like a riotous new discovery. Here’s an impossible masterpiece of teen TV that is authentically raw but also dreamily weird, a goof-off LOL comedy full of traumatic middle-school melancholy.”

Year of the Rabbit (from September 4) has been called a Victorian take on The Sweeney, about a trio of crimefighters that includes London’s first female officer.

“But it is really more like Ripper Street played for laughs,” said The Guardian, “a heady mix of period detail, gleeful anachronism and baroque profanity.”

Matt Berry (What We Do in the Shadows), Freddie Fox (The Three Musketeers), Susie Wokoma (Crashing), Keeley Hawes (Bodyguard) and Alun Armstrong (Penny Dreadful) star.

Temple (weekly from September 15) is Sky One’s hot-off-the-satellite remake of a Norwegian TV series called Valkyrien.

It stars Mark Strong as a surgeon whose life is thrown into chaos when his wife (Catherine McCormack) is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease.

His obsession with finding a cure leads him to open – literally and figuratively – an underground clinic beneath Temple tube station in London, as he teams up with “misfit” (Daniel Mays), a medical researcher (Clarice Van Houten), and a thief on the run (Tobi King Bakare).

Aussie hitman hoot Mr Inbetween will return for its second season on September 13, within 24 hours of its US premiere, as will seasons two of New Amsterdam (weekly from September 25) and A Million Little Things (weekly from September 27).

Amsterdam and Things aren’t worthy of their SoHo status but Mr Inbetween was one of last year’s best discoveries and fans shouldn’t have to pay extra to stream it ahead of its SoHo run.

Other SoHo series that will stream first on Neon are season two of Sweetbitter (from September 20) and S3 of Divorce (from September 30) while streaming weekly from the same day as their SoHo bows will be S2 of Mayans MC (from September 4) and S3 of The Deuce (from September 10).

Streaming post-SoHo will be S4 of Animal Kingdom (from September 11) and S2 of Strange Angel (from September 23) while new documentaries will include:

  • Whitney (September 4)
  • Fahrenheit 11/9 (September 4)
  • What Happened on September 11 (September 12)
  • In the Shadows of the Towers: Stuyvesant High in 9/11 (September 12)
  • What’s My Name? Muhammad Ali (September 28)
  • Ice on Fire (September 29).

Neon also will pick up the dire Love Island on a ship, Shipmates (from September 23), and will resurrect Kiwi hits The Almighty JohnsonsGo Girls and Step Dave (from September 15).

Movie premieres will include Aquaman, Ralph Breaks the Internet, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald and Mary Poppins Returns.
