New to Neon in September

The Handmaid’s Tale will spin its fifth season from September 15 on Sky’s Neon while premiering will be American Gigolo (September 12) and Wakefield (September 9).

The dystopian drama will stream here the same day it hits Hulu in the US and will premiere with a double-episode.

Here’s a round-up of what to expect.

American Gigolo re-imagines the 1980 Richard Gere movie with We Own This City’s Jon Bernthal as an ex-con navigating LA’s sex industry while trying to expose the set-up that sent him to prison for murder 18 years earlier and hoping to reconnect with his one true love (Gretchen Mol).

It’s from Showtime as is Wakefield, which will surface nearly a year after its US premiere. Reads the blurb:

Gifted psychiatric nurse Nik Katira is the most stable person at Wakefield mental health unit in the Blue Mountains of Australia. As his own sanity suddenly starts to slip, he finds himself questioning the line between reality and madness.

The New York Post says it “mixes drama, comedy and even fantasy sequences (with several musical numbers) for a compelling look at the lives of a cross-section of people each burdened with issues both emotional and physical”.

Streaming much closer to their US launches will be Atlanta (S4, September 17),  New Amsterdam (S5, September 21), FBI (S5, September 22), FBI: Most Wanted (S4, September 22) and Law & Order: Organized Crime (S3, September 27).

Vibe’s contract killers comedy Hitmen, starring Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, will stream on Neon from September 27 while Louis Theroux fans can look forward to Drinking to Oblivion (September 6), Talking to Anorexia (September 13) and Miami Mega-Jail (September 20).

Other premieres will include S2 of Miz & Mrs (September 1) and Flatbush Misdemeanors (September 24), and from September 30 kids’ shows Andy’s Secret Hideout, Go Jetters (S1&3) and Swashbuckle (S6).

September movie premieres will include Dune, Spider-Man: No Way Home and The Matrix Resurrections.

    Maybe HBO is redeeming itself with House of the Dragon, that was quite a first episode, the CGI was a little off in places, but, the story, dialogue and acting were back to what you’d expect. I could definitely feel George R.R. Martin’s fingers were all over it (like series 1 – 5 of GOT). If only he spent as much time finishing the last two books …

  2. Interesting that Sky still hasn’t broadcast any of The Handmaid’s Tale S1-4. Must only have streaming rights – and yet I’ve never ever seen the title on SkyGo.

  3. It could be due to Handmaid’s legacy deal with Lightbox – presumably the rights were SVOD-only, which would limit it to Neon rather than Sky’s platform generally.
