Overview of September's shows

September sees an interesting mix of shows like HBO's sci-fi series Raised By Wolves, the release of We Bare Bears: The Movie on Cartoon Network, Boomerang and other channels, as well as Netflix's Enola Holmes. FX's animated series, Archer, returns for an eleventh season, while Viu debuts three new shows, including an interesting sounding Korean drama Zombie Detective. All in all, it's a fun bag of shows we're getting in September!

Raised By Wolves (3 Sep)
HBO GO

Two androids are tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

A decidedly interesting exploration into humanity and faith, Raised By Wolves looks like it'll not only contain thought-provoking philosophical elements — but also lots of action, drama and science fiction fun. The trailer itself already presents many questions, like how the destruction of Earth came about and what exactly the android Mother (Amanda Collins) is. And with a stylised but slightly eccentric treatment, this show looks like it could be the next Westworld.

We Bare Bears: The Movie (movie) (12 Sep, Saturday 11 am)
Cartoon Network (StarHub: 316, Singtel: 226)/Boomerang (StarHub: 317, Singtel: 228)/Warner TV (StarHub: 515, Singtel: 306)/Oh!K (StarHub: 816, Singtel: 525)/ HBO (StarHub: 601, Singtel: 420)

Bear brothers Grizz, Panda, and Ice Bear move to San Franciso, where they accidentally get into multiple hijinks that result them being pursued by the law (and wildlife life control). Left with no choice, the bears escape to Canada for their freedom and safety. It serves as a conclusion to the We Bare Bears series.

Drawing on themes of acceptance, family separation, and racial discrimination, the final adventure of the bear brothers was said to have been inspired by the Trump administration family separation policy, as well as the California wildfires of 2018. It's definitely the biggest and wildest romp that the bears have ever been through, and it looks like the trio will get a good send-off in this film.

Zombie Detective (13 Sep)
Viu

Bereft of memories and an identity, Choi Jin Hyuk plays a nameless zombie who miserably but humbly accepts his life (or unlife) as a zombie. But when he stumbles upon the corpse of a CEO of a private detective agency, a golden opportunity presents itself. He decides to masquerade as the recently deceased CEO, Kim Yoo Yeong, and begins life anew in the village — playing the part of a zombie detective.

This feels like everything plus the kitchen sink was thrown into this concept, and surprisingly, it looks like it'll work! Perhaps that's because most of the usual romantic melodrama are absent in this Korean drama (thank goodness, aren't we all tired of those predictable elements by now) and it seems like a genuine focus is placed on a plot and some fantasy elements. We're pretty sure that the main character gets to become a real human by the end of the series.

Enola Holmes (movie) (23 Sep)
Netflix

When Enola Holmes—Sherlock’s teen sister—discovers her mother missing, she sets off to find her, becoming a super-sleuth in her own right as she outwits her famous brother and unravels a dangerous conspiracy around a mysterious young Lord. Starring Millie Bobby Brown, Sam Claflin, with Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham-Carter. Directed by Harry Bradbeer (Fleabag).

Based on the young adult fiction series The Enola Holmes Mysteries, the film gives the famous detective a spunky young sister who's learning her place in the world. The coming-of-age story takes a different spin on what Holmes' sister would be like (if he has one), as compared to previous depictions, such as BBC's Sherlock series (where she's named Eurus Holmes instead). The star-studded cast of Enola Holmes may prove to be its most interesting aspect yet — who'd have expected Henry Cavill to play Sherlock Holmes?
