When it comes to TV, September now has two distinct parts. Part one includes early-season starts for syndicated shows and premieres for big series on streaming services, like Prime Video with its splashy Lord of the Rings prequel or Disney Plus with Andor, that don’t concern themselves with time of year or Nielsen ratings.

Part two indicates the arrival of fall, with the return of the NFL, the Primetime Emmys and fall TV debuts on the broadcast networks. Streaming has turned fall TV – for which the older among us used to long while suffering through summers of repeats – into something of a relic, but it’s still a time when so many new shows come to TV and old favorites return with new episodes.

Here’s what Brief is watching as fall TV gets underway:
