Disenchantment season 5 (Netflix)

And they all lived happily ever after? Matt Groening’s animated, twisted fairy tale is ending, though with raunchy jokes and goofy antics rather than a sweet kiss or white knight. The misadventures of hard-drinking, hard-hitting Queen Bean (Abbi Jacobson), feisty companion Elfo (Nat Faxon) and personal demon Luci (Eric Andre) culminate in an epic battle for Dreamland.

To save the realm from her mother, the wicked Queen Dagmar (Sharon Horgan), Bean must overcome a prophecy that she will kill someone she loves. Along the way, the heroes will face Satan, a headless corpse, an evil scientist and most terrifying of all, their true destiny.

Notable New Episodes

How to With John Wilson series finale (HBO)

Sadly, this is the end of the road for the refreshingly candid, delightfully odd docu-comedy that has served has a meditation on the human condition. John Wilson’s “how to” guides on life in New York City have explored how people relate and connect in a warm and witty, blunt and kind way. His last foray is “How to Track a Package,” which takes him into the depths of the city.

Streaming Friday, Sept. 1 at 11 p.m. ET on Max

Movie Premieres

Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny (digital)

The fifth Indiana Jones movie is the last to star Harrison Ford as the whip-wielding, fedora-wearing archaeologist. If you didn’t catch it in theaters, you’re not alone, since it didn’t really fire up the box office. And according to TG’s Rory Mellon, Indiana Jones 5 is "definitely a movie that can wait” for streaming.

Dial of Destiny is set in two time periods. In 1944, Indy and archaeology colleague Basil Shaw (Toby Jones) recover a Nazi-stolen artifact, a time-traveling device called the Archimedes Dial, from scientist Jürgen Voller (Mads Mikkelson). In 1969, Voller is working for NASA and trying to get his hands on the dial again. Jones teams up with Shaw's daughter, Helena (Phoebe Waller-Bridge) to stop him for good.

Moving On (Hulu)

If Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin decide to just make projects together for the rest of their careers, we are all blessed. Grace and Frankie has concluded its run on Netflix, but the longtime collaborators have gone to movies like 80 for Brady and Moving On.

The latter is a comedy (of course) about two estranged friends who reconnect at the funeral of another mutual pal. They decide to exact revenge on the widower (Malcolm McDowell) for the harm he caused decades earlier. As they plot and scheme, Evelyn and Claire come to grips with the past and with each other.
