With so many shows to choose from nowadays, at times it can feel almost impossible to settle on something to watch. We often find ourselves endlessly scrolling, caught between rewatching old favourites or simply giving up on the search altogether out of sheer indecision. Luckily, we’re making it easier for you to navigate through the new shows that are coming up this month.
From the highly anticipated series, The Worst of Evil, to the return of Sex Education Season 4, and survival show The Devil’s Plan, here are some shows to watch this September.
The Worst of Evil
Set in the 1990s in Seoul, a former DJ turned gang boss, named Jung Gi Cheul (played by Wi Hajun), seizes control of a notorious gang, introducing a new drug known as “Gangnam Crystal” to the city’s vibrant nightclub scene. The drug’s origins remain shrouded in mystery, prompting the recruitment of a rural police officer into an undercover unit with a critical mission: infiltrate the gang and dismantle it from within. Officer Park Junmo, played by Ji Changwook, finds himself burdened with concealing his covert assignment from everyone, a job made all the more complicated when he discovers that his wife and fellow officer, Yu Euijeong, has independently volunteered for the same mission. To further complicate matters, Euijeong harbours a shadowy past connected to the city’s enigmatic drug lord. As Junmo grapples with the conflict between his duty and his determination to protect his wife, his decisions will keep audiences teetering on the precipice of suspense throughout this riveting tale.

Sex Education: Season 4
Following the major cliffhanger from Season 3, the new season of Sex Education continues as Otis and Eric find themselves embarking on a fresh chapter as they step into their first day at Cavendish Sixth Form College. This time, Otis finds himself nervous as he contemplates establishing his new clinic, while Eric is praying they won’t be losers again. Yet, Cavendish Sixth Form College proves to be a cultural revelation for the former Moordale students, challenging their preconceived notions of progressiveness. Daily yoga sessions in a communal garden, a resolute commitment to sustainability, and a student body renowned for their unusual kindness all stand as a testament to the college’s unique atmosphere. Viv, in particular, feels profoundly disoriented by Cavendish’s student-led, non-competitive ethos, while Jackson struggles to move on from his feelings for Cal. Aimee, on the other hand, embarks on a new journey by enrolling in an Art A Level, and Adam confronts the question of whether mainstream education aligns with his aspirations.
