A new month means a whole new load of fresh shows and movies that get added to our favourite streaming platforms like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ and more.

While the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes have delayed the release of several TV shows and movies, with the expectation that more shifts and cancellations will continue, there's still new content constantly being added to streaming sites.

This month, several fan-favourite TV shows return, like Virgin River and Sex Education on Netflix. While new shows like Gen V on Amazon's Prime Video will have its premiere.

For movies, the famed The Little Mermaid remake will be available to stream on Disney+, along with a new film starring Kaitlyn Dever, the psychological thriller No One Will Save You.

New and noteworthy TV shows, movies to stream in Canada in September:


Virgin River

The Canada-filmed romantic drama Virgin River is back for Season 5, with the first part of the season premiering on Netflix Sept. 7 with 10 episodes.

As we see in the trailer for the new season, a wildfire will be a significant threat to the town throughout the season.

Sign up for Netflix: Starting at $5.99/month

In all its complicated glory, Season 4 of Virgin River left us with a lot of questions fans are hoping to find answers to in the upcoming season. Primarily, who is the real father of Charmaine's (Lauren Hammersley) twins?

Fans were also left wondering how Denny's (Kai Bradbury) storyline will continue, and impact others, after Doc (Tim Matheson) found out about Denny's Huntington’s disease.

Additionally, Mel (Alexandra Breckenridge) is pregnant and engaged to Jack (Martin Henderson), and we'll see what kind of complications that comes with in Season 5.

Sex Education

The fourth and final season of Sex Education, the joyfully hysterical comedy centred around horny teenagers, will be released on Netflix Sept. 21.

Otis (Asa Butterfield) and Eric (Ncuti Gatwa) will start the season at Cavendish Sixth Form College, which has a very different culture than Moordale. There's yoga in the garden and popular students are actually kind, but Otis has some competition now that he's not the only sex therapist on campus.

Gillian Anderson is of course returning to the show as the sex therapist mom to Otis, but new cast members include Canadian Dan Levy, who plays author Thomas Molloy teaching Maeve (Emma Mackey) at Wallace University.
