DAHMER – Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story premieres on Netflix September 21. The series examines the gruesome and horrific true crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer and the systemic failures that enabled one of America’s most notorious serial killers to continue his murderous spree in plain sight for over a decade.

Ghosts returns for season two September 29. Samantha and Jay throw caution to the wind when they convert their recently inherited country estate into a bed-and-breakfast. Call it mislaid plans. Not only is the place falling apart, but it’s also inhabited by spirits of previous residents — whom only Samantha can see and hear. Ghosts spins the funny​, heartfelt story about a ​newfound dream that reveals connection and self-discovery aren’t just for the living.

Season three of Floor Is Lava premieres on Netflix September 30. Fifteen daring new teams fight to race to the top of a towering volcano to win $10,000. Who’s going to triumph and who’s going to be toast? 

Oddballs is coming to Netflix October 7. The animated series follows James, a bubble-shaped boy, whose observations on life fuel his comedic rants at everyday annoyances and elevates them to laughably absurd heights. Along with his best friends Max (a talking crocodile) and Echo (a girl who claims to be from the future), James’ ridiculous schemes to question norms often result in disaster. It is inspired by James Rallison’s popular YouTube channel, TheOdd1sOut. 

This holiday season, CBS will air a new hour long animated special titled Reindeer in Here. The special is the heartwarming story of how Blizzard (Blizz), a young reindeer living at the North Pole who has an unusual trait – one antler that is significantly smaller than the other – and his unique group of friends band together to save the future of Christmas. In doing so, they unknowingly create a magical holiday tradition like none other. It is based on the book by Adam Reed and will premiere November 29 following Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

HBO Max is no longer moving forward on its Constantine series from J.J. Abrams. They are also not moving forward on their Madame Xanadu series also from Abrams. Both were to be adaptations of DC comics characters.

Season two of ALLBLK’s Partners in Rhyme premieres October 13. Set in sunny Southern California, the series centers around the ever-changing record industry.
