Loki Season 2 – Disney+ (October 6th)

In the past three years, Marvel has released 9 different shows as part of the MCU to Disney+. So far, not a single one of them has gotten a second season, making them all feel more like extended movies rather than TV shows.

That trend finally ends this month, when Loki will return for a second season consisting of 6 episodes. In a way, Loki seemed to be the Marvel show most likely to actually get a second season since the first season ended on a cliffhanger.

Season 2 was confirmed to be in development the moment the season 1 had concluded. But still, it’s nice to see Marvel structuring one of their TV shows like an actual TV show.

Expect plenty more time travel antics in the second season of Loki, as well as some tidbits about the greater story Marvel is building for Phase 5 and 6, because we know that Kang (who first appeared in Loki season 1) will be a part of season 2 as well.

The Fall of the House of Usher – Netflix (October 12th)

For half a decade now, Mike Flanagan has been one of the biggest names in horror on Netflix. After creating The Haunting of Hill House in 2018, he would go on to make another horror series for the streaming service almost every year, including The Haunting of Bly Manor, Midnight Mass, and The Midnight Club.

This year, his new Netflix horror series will be The Fall of the House of Usher, loosely based on the Edgar Alan Poe short story of the same name. The show is a modern version of the story, centered around the family of the CEO of a pharmaceutical company that begins to crumble under the seeming influences of supernatural forces.

The trailer also has some other of Poe’s iconic imagery including multiple shots of a raven and a character saying the word, “Nevermore.” So, there might be some extra Easter eggs sprinkled throughout the show for those diehard Edgar Alan Poe fans.

Frasier – Paramount+ (October 12th)

With every show from the past coming back for a reboot, this one almost seemed inevitable. A successful sitcom from one of the strongest sitcom lineups in history?

A show coming back that was already one of the most successful spinoffs ever during its first run? A reboot that is named after the main character so technically only one actor has to agree to come back and they can call it a reboot?

Really at this point, it’s more surprising that it’s taken this long for a reboot of Frasier to finally happen. For those who are excited to see the old gang back together, this show might not be exactly what you’re looking for.

The only character from the earlier show who is in the main cast for the reboot is Frasier himself, though Roz is slated to make a recurring appearance at some point in the season. This show seems to be doing a lot to acknowledge the show where Frasier first appeared, Cheers.

The reboot series will be set in Boston like Cheers instead of Seattle like the spinoff. It will feature Frasier’s son, Freddy, who was born on Cheers and appeared sporadically on Frasier as a main character in this show.

Also appearing will be Lilith, Frasier’s ex-wife and Freddy’s mother, who has been the one constant of Frasier in all three show’s he’s appeared in.

Goosebumps – Disney+ and Hulu (October 13th)

While Goosebumps is best known as a series of books, there was a Goosebumps TV show back in 1995 that adapted many of the stories from the books. So, while Goosebumps has been a film franchise for the past several years, this month it’s returning to the small screen with a 10 part story.

While the earlier Goosebumps TV show had an anthology format where each episode told a different story and was based on a different book, this series appears to be telling one continuous story for the entire season. The show will air on both Disney+ and Hulu, so if you only have one of those streaming services, you can still check out the latest Goosebumps TV show.

Lessons in Chemistry – Apple TV+ (October 13th)

One of the most popular books that was published last year is already being turned into a highly anticipated TV show. Set in the 1950s, the show (and the book it’s based on) is about a female scientist who is fired from her job and becomes a host of a popular cooking show.

Under the guise of a cooking show, she begins to educate her audience of mostly housewives about different scientific topics. After the almost instant success of the book, it’s not surprising that the adaptation was developed so quickly.

Brie Larson stars in the show that is scheduled to run for 8 episodes.
