September 2021 TV Series Premieres: The Complete List and Guide to What to Watch

There are so many new TV series premiering each month that it’s impossible to keep up with them. Just in September 2021 alone, there are 92 new TV series scheduled to make their debut. The purpose of this list will be twofold, it will work as a replacement for my monthly TV premieres schedules that I used to do as well as provide me a chance to write a bit about all of the TV series premieres I check out this month (and in the future) and hopefully curate them to viewers that will enjoy them. There’s no way I’m going to be able to watch them all but I’ll try to watch as many as I can, even if I can only get through an episode or two (I’ll even update this post if I ever go back months or years later and try one of the series that premiered this month). I’ll then provide a short review (usually 1-2 paragraphs) and give my thoughts on what type of viewers I think may enjoy the show (if any). Since I obviously can’t get to every show, I would love to read your thoughts about these series so leave a comment about any or all of the shows you watched this month. Help other viewers like you figure out what they should watch and I’ll try to check out any series that get a lot of positive reception. Let’s turn this post series into a sort of TV book club and help each other find some hidden gems.

This post will be updated throughout the month so if you find it of any use to you, I would suggest bookmarking it. Premiere dates and times do occasionally change (I’ll try to update them if I notice) and there will almost certainly be additional TV series premieres announced throughout the month. TV and streaming movies can be found on our September 2021 Movie Releases: The Complete List and Guide to What to Watch post (*coming soon*). While I don’t plan on writing about them, I have also included a list of season premieres at the end of this post.

For similar monthly lists of TV series premieres, please refer to our TV Series Premieres by Date: The Complete List and Directory (*coming soon*) and/or our 2021 TV Series Premieres: The Complete List and Directory posts. The goal with these posts is to provide a complete catalog/archive of all TV series that fit a certain category (year of release, genre, network, etc.) as well as curate the titles in each that I think are worth your time. Think of this idea as a sort-of hyper-organized Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide but for TV shows.

These complete list posts take hours to days to even assemble all of the titles that fit them, let alone watch and write about them. If you would like to help support the blog and help us archive and curate the world of entertainment, most of our revenue comes from Amazon affiliate links. If you are planning on making an Amazon purchase, we would greatly appreciate if you would click any of the Amazon links below (or this one) to help us earn a cut of the purchase price (this works for almost anything you buy). It doesn’t cost you anything extra to buy from these links and is the best way to support Geeky Hobbies.

To search for a specific TV series, press CTRL + F at the same time and then start typing in the name of the show you are looking for.

Rating Explanation:

  • 0 and 0.5/5-Awful and/or offensive, no redeeming qualities, avoid at all costs.
  • 1 and 1.5/5-Bad, I can’t recommend it for anyone but there may be a few people out there who enjoy it.
  • 2 and 2.5/5-Below average, watchable but usually boring, unimaginative, or the bad outweighs the good. Might be worth half-watching while doing something else or if you love the concept or genre.
  • 3/5-Average, these series are worth watching if you have time (especially if you like the concept or genre) but most viewers will find them unexciting and mostly mediocre. They’ll probably be worth your time but don’t expect anything earth-shattering.
  • 3.5/5-Good, series at this level are well-made with no real major issues (or the good more than outweighs the bad). Most viewers should watch these series as long as they have time and don’t hate the genre or concept.
  • 4 and 4.5/5-Great, absolutely worth the watch, most people who try it should enjoy it. My ratings tend to heavily skew into the 2.5-3.5 range so if I give a show a 4 or 4.5/5, it’s really something special.
  • 5-Perfect, an absolute masterpiece with no flaws that will probably have you thinking about it for months or even years. I rarely give out this perfect score.
  • *Note: These ratings are subject to change as these shows continue to air. Due to the timely nature of this post series, I will often have to write about a show based only on the first episode or two (which I don’t like to do as most shows don’t even reach their full potential until season two or three). I will try to update the list entries if my opinion changes later in the season (if I continue watching it that is).

*All times are listed in Eastern/Pacific time and then Central/Mountain time.*
