Loki

Disney's latest powerhouse in the Marvel universe comes with Loki, which features Tom Hiddleston reprising his role as the mischievous god. 

The Loki in this series is the one who escaped with the Tesseract shortly after the events of The Avengers – in an alternate timeline, as depicted within Avengers: Endgame. In this show, Loki falls afoul of the Time Variance Authority, including Owen Wilson's Mobius (who looks more like John Slattery from Mad Men, here). He's taken into custody, and the Tesseract is confiscated. 

In messing around with this power, Loki has caused damage to the fabric of time, splitting it off into different realities. The TVA is essentially pressuring Loki into helping them fix the mess he's made. There's a lot to unpack in this show, and Marvel fans are definitely in for a treat with Tom's performances.

Set to premiere exclusively on September 13th with weekly episodes, the limited series explores the experiences of Jonathan and Mira as individuals and as a couple, with their strong, and sometimes contrasting, feelings.

This series follows young surgeon Shaun Murphy, who is on the autism spectrum with savant syndrome, using his extraordinary medical talents at St. Bonaventure Hospital’s surgical unit. The Good Doctor will release on OSN on September 28th, the same time as the US and worldwide release.

The Mandalorian

The Mandalorian is a breakout hit, and deservedly so. This expensive-looking show has unleashed Baby Yoda upon us – which is a true gift. Iron Man director Jon Favreau created this series, starring Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones’ Red Viper) as a mysterious bounty hunter wearing the box-of-tricks armor first made famous by Boba Fett. Episodes rarely exceed 40 minutes in length, which is a blessed relief in this age of bloated streaming dramas. Its second season is particularly strong, offering high-end fan service alongside terrific new Star Wars stories – we called it the best TV show of 2020, and for good reason. 

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The show follows lives of an eclectic group of detectives in a New York precinct, including Detective Jake Peralta who has been enabled - if not indulged - his entire career. That is, until the precinct gets a new commanding officer, and everything gets turned on its head. This iconic show came back for its final season this year, which you can watch right here on OSN.

Sex And The City

There isn't a show more iconic than Sex And The City, which follows four women navigating their lives in NYC. Through career breaks, relationships, breakups, and scandals, the four friends always have each other to fall back on, with plenty  of laughter along the way.

This comedy drama features an incredible cast of often bumbling characters that come together to paint a grim picture of what may actually happen behind the doors of The White House.

American Horror Story: Double Feature

A struggling writer, his pregnant wife, and their daughter move to an isolated beach town for the winter. Once they're settled in, the town's true residents begin to make themselves known.
