Stan Highlights

Godfather Of Harlem: Season 1 (Weekly from October 1)

Starring Academy Award-winner Forest Whitaker as feared crime boss Bumpy Johnson, this epic crime drama set in the '60s follows the revered gangster after he returns from prison to find the neighbourhood he once ruled in shambles. With the streets now controlled by the Italian mob, Bumpy must take on the Genovese crime family to regain control, forming an alliance with radical preacher Malcolm X in a brutal battle that threatens to tear the city apart.

RuPaul's Drag Race UK (Weekly from October 4 )

Following the winning formula we know and love, expect high heels and even higher hair as RuPaul’s Drag Race heads to London to see if 10 Brits have got what it takes to become Queen of the runway! RuPaul and Michelle Visage are joined by Alan Carr and Graham Norton as rotating judges. There will be sequins.

Get Shorty: Season 3 (Weekly from October 7)

Season three of this comedy-drama based on the John Travolta movie hit finds mobster-turned-filmmaker Miles, played by the brilliant Chris O’Dowd, becoming even more ruthless as he continues to climb the Hollywood ladder while his washed up partner Rick (Ray Romano) deals with the FBI.

All American: Season 2 (Weekly from October 8)

Based on the real life high school years of former NFL star Spencer Paysinger, the second season of All American sees star wide receiver Spencer James (Daniel Ezra) facing a huge moral decision. Should he turn his back on his success and return to his family or should he stay at the affluent Beverly Hills school that can help further his football dream?

Looking For Alaska: Season 1 (All episodes from October 19)

Based on John Green's acclaimed novel of the same name and created by the team behind Gossip Girl, Looking For Alaska follows Miles 'Pudge' Halter (Charlie Plummer), a bored teen who starts attending Culver Creek Boarding School where he meets the incandescent free spirit Alaska, played by Kristine Froseth (The Truth About the Harry Quebert Affair), who changes his outlook on life forever.

    October's Netflix highlights are a welcome return to form. (Seriously, were there any must-watch shows in October? We can't think of any.) Titles we're most looking forward to this month include Peaky Blinders season 5, new episodes of Bojack Horseman, original sci-fi show Raising Dion, season 4 of Riverdale and the Stephen King horror flick In The Tall Grass.

    Netflix Highlights

    Peaky Blinders: Season 5 (04/10/2019)

    As the Shelbys grapple with the 1929 stock market crash, Tommy confronts new threats to his power from younger family members and fascist rivals.

    Raising Dion follows the story of a woman named Nicole (Alisha Wainwright), who raises her son Dion (newcomer Ja’Siah Young) after the death of her husband, Mark (Michael B. Jordan). The normal dramas of raising a son as a single mom are amplified when Dion starts to manifest several mysterious, superhero-like abilities. Nicole must now keep her son’s gifts secret with the help of Mark’s best friend Pat (Jason Ritter), and protect Dion from antagonists out to exploit him while figuring out the origin of his abilities.

    Riverdale: Season 4 (from 10/10/2019)

    Dark teen series Riverdale returns for its fourth season, now with its teenagers getting ready for senior year.

    Daybreak (24/10/2019)

    Navigating a post-apocalyptic world full of zombies and Mad Max-style gangs, a teenage outcast searches for his lost love in this humorous drama series.

    Bojack Horseman Season 6

    It's safe to say Horsin' Around won't be BoJack Horseman's only lasting legacy. The final two-part season airs October 25 and January 31.

    Amazon Prim Video's October lineup is smaller than its competitors, but there's still some good stuff here including new seasons of Goliath, The Purge and Bosch. It's also the only streaming channel with sports in the base package - you can catch the NFL's Thursday Night Football weekly from 3 October. Here are the highlights.

    Goliath: Season 3 (4 October)

    The unexpected death of an old friend leads Billy McBride to take a case in the drought-stricken Central Valley where he comes face-to-face with a new Goliath: a billionaire farmer and his sister and their scheme to steal California’s most valuable resource – water. As Billy and his team pursue the truth, old enemies and personal demons resurface forcing him to confront his own mortality.

    Modern Love (18 October)

    Modern Love is inspired by the popular New York Times column of the same name. This romantic comedy anthology series explores love in all of its complicated and beautiful forms as each standalone episode brings some of the most beloved stories to life with a stellar cast.

    The Purge: Season 2 (18 October)

    Picking up after the events of season one, the brand new season explores a different side of Purge night, the 12-hour annual event where all crime, including murder, is legal. Through a new cast of characters, season two of The Purge looks at how the event affects the lives of these people over the next 12 months in the lead-up to the next annual Purge.

    Bosch: Season 5 (18 October)

    Season five of Bosch jumps forward about a year after the shocking events of season four, when Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) witnesses his ex-wife Eleanor’s (Sarah Clarke) murder in a drive-by shooting. Grief and anger are mostly in the rearview as Bosch and his undergrad daughter Maddie (Madison Lintz) are now living together and working at the same Hollywood precinct.

    Peterloo (18 October)

    The brutal attack by government forces on a peaceful demonstration in St Peter’s Field Manchester, becomes known as the Peterloo Massacre, the carnage evoking the Battle of Waterloo. ‘Peterloo’ tells of poor mill workers, hot-headed radicals, moderate reformers, weak magistrates, brutal police and military, a repressive government, decadent royalty and devious spies. Starring Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Neil Bell with writing and directing by Mike Leigh.


    Comments

      This is why I hate the plethora of streaming services... I'm invested in the Arrowverse series of shows, and looking forward to the massive 5-series crossover they have planned later in the year. But...
      Arrow is on Netflix
      The Flash is on Stan
      Supergirl and Batwoman are on Foxtel
      Legends of Tomorrow isn't even on this list. Neither is Black Lightning (whose titular character also features in the crossover).

      It's very frustrating.

        The Flash and LoT are on foxtel btw. Point still stands, i have 3 streaming services and would like to also watch Get Shorty but am having trouble justifying 3 let alone 4 services. I think Black Lightning was on Netflix or Foxtel as well.

        Black Lightning is on Netflix. Also, you can (on the streaming services I know about) juggle your subscriptions month by month, often with a 30 day free trial, to catch what you want to see.
