Next Week in TV 9/6: NFL Football is Back, So is Pokémon Journeys: The Series!

By Scott C. & DRWHO42 

Last week saw a decent amount of content, such as Amazon’s The Boys returning for a second season and Disney’s Mulan live-action movie debuting on Disney+ for $29.99. As for this week, here are a few notables airing soon.

On the morning of Tuesday, September 8th, Netflix has a treat for all zombie fans everywhere with the international horror movie debut of #Alive. The movie itself is about “a grisly virus,” rampaging a city with a young man locked inside his apartment. He must find a way out of his home so he can survive that world’s zombie apocalypse. 

The NFL, meanwhile, is back this week! On Thursday, September 10th, at 8:20 p.m. ET, the Houston Texans will face off against the Super Bowl LIV champions Kansas City Chiefs on NBC. This game marks the beginning of the NFL 2020 season, the first game of Week 1.

Pokémon Journeys: The Series is also back for its fall run (23rd Season). Now, to catch the fall return of Ash and his best friend, Pikachu, fans must have access to Netflix. The premiere date is September 11th; the time is 3:01 a.m. ET.

Speaking of September 11th, the History Channel will have a few 9/11 specials airing on that day to make sure we all never forget this awful and tragic day from 2001. This year will be the 19th anniversary.

And in some recent TV news, do know that Anna Faris is leaving CBS’ Mom series after seven seasons, and Marvel Comic’s Silk character and more might be getting multiple TV shows from Amazon and Sony. Then we have the news of Jeopardy champion Ken Jennings being part of season thirty-seven of Jeopardy, and he will be a consulting producer for the game show. Actress Gina Torris, meanwhile, will be in season two of 9-1-1: Lone Star. Lastly, Quibi’s Reno 911 series is renewed for a second season, the second season of The Mandalorian debuts on October 30th, on Disney+, and David Benioff and Dan Weiss will adapt the science-fiction book from Liu Cixin, The Three-Body Problem, for Netflix.
