All the Sci-Fi TV & Movies Streaming in September 2023: The Continental, AHS, Gen V & More

Peacock dials up a 1970s prequel story to explore how John Wick's world became so murderously twisted. 

By Benjamin Bullard

Can it really be September already? As the summer heat ebbs and fall closes in, so too does the cold, calculating approach of a killer new assassin’s chapter in the John Wick story-verse, as Peacock reserves a fateful Sept. 22 arrival date for The Continental: From the World of John Wick.

The three-part event series, which explores the 1970s rise to power of debonair hotel proprietor Winston Scott, puts Colin Woodell (The Purge, Designated Survivor) in the early-days prequel role made famous in the John Wick movies by the iconic Ian McShane, while diving into Winston’s murky past to reveal how he ascended to one of the High Table’s most trusted key positions.

RELATED: What's Streaming on Peacock in September 2023?

The Continental only tops a much longer list of new original series and films across the streaming dial in September — a list that also encompasses a tidy passel of fresh-from-theaters movie premieres, including the live-action remake of The Little Mermaid at Disney+ (Sept. 6) and the screech of squealing rubber as Vin Diesel and the Fast Saga gang come drifting onto Peacock with renewed revved-up vengeance in Fast X.

Fast X speeds onto the bird app beginning Sept. 15, alongside fellow Fast Saga movie highlights Fast & Furious 6, The Fate of the Furious, and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw. And with the lone exception of Max (where things are quiet, save for a neat short-term agreement with AMC+ that brings small-screen favorites like The Walking Dead and the Interview With a Vampire series onto the platform for a limited time), nearly every streaming platform has something new in store for genre lovers this month.

As of Aug. 31, Netflix has gone a-pirating with its new live-action series adaptation of the immensely popular (and prolific) manga One Piece, even as the platform readies new debuts for a pair of animated franchise favorites: Season 5 of the Matt Groening-created Disenchantment on Sept. 1, and Castlevania: Nocturne on Sept. 28. Animation’s also the word at Paramount+, where Star Trek: Lower Decks returns for its fourth season on Sept. 7. Hulu, meanwhile, will debut Krapopolis, Fox’s new adult animated comedy from Community creator Dan Harmon, beginning Sept. 24.

Also arriving at Hulu this month is Kim Kardashian (yes, you read that right) in part one of FX’s American Horror Story: Delicate, the newest installment in creator Ryan Murphy’s long-running horror anthology series. AHS: Delicate debuts on Sept. 21, even as Hulu readies a pair of original new creepy projects for their own September launches: The Other Black Girl (a series with serious Get Out horror vibes) on Sept. 13, and the alien-laced original thriller film No One Will Save You on Sept. 22.

Prime Video is expanding The Boys bloody landscape of backfiring superheroics this month, thanks to the hugely anticipated Sept. 29 arrival of teen-themed spinoff series Gen V. You don’t have to wait ’til September ends, though, to catch Prime Video's newest arrival, as Season 2 of fantasy series The Wheel of Time comes rolling onto the service starting Sept. 1 — all with the early assurance from Amazon that a Season 3 is already in the works.

Last but not least, fairy-tale horror is afoot this month over at Apple TV+, where LaKeith Stanfield (Selma, Judas and the Black Messiah) encounters strange new realities while searching for his missing loved ones in creepy new series The Changeling. Based on the same-titled 2017 fantasy horror novel by Victor LaValle, The Changeling drops its first three episodes on Sept. 8, before settling into a weekly rhythm that’ll carry the 8-episode adventure deep into the month of October.
