Football keeps dominating the TV world, thanks to its recent return. But we cannot forget about everything else airing on TV, especially this week’s programming.
And airing on Sunday, September 20th, at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, the 72nd Emmy Awards will see the nominees and presenters appear virtually this year. It is all because of a pandemic. Do note that Jimmy Kimmel is this year’s host. (Click here to access the Nominees and Winners list.)
Big Hero 6: The Series returns this week, and the show’s third season will debut on Monday, September 21st, at 7:30 p.m. ET on Disney XD.
Wednesday, September 23rd, has two early morning treats for us all to watch. The first treat is over on CBS All Access, and it is a documentary about Sega and Nintendo butting heads during the 1990s; the documentary is called Console Wars. The second treat is over on Netflix, and the movie itself stars Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill in Enola Holmes. The film is about the character Enola Holmes looking for a missing family member with her older brother, Sherlock Holmes.
On the morning of Friday, September 25th, this date sees Secret Society of Second-Born Royals debut on Disney+. This superhero adventure is about a rebellious teenager who discovers that she has super-human powers, while also being second in line to the throne of kingdom Illyria. The teen is also part of a secret group that is in charge of protecting the world; the group’s teacher will teach the rebellious teen and everyone else in it on how to use their powers properly, before saving the Earth from future troubles.
Quickly on some recent TV news. HBO Max will now be the home for all DC Universe original content, such as Titans, Doom Patrol, Harley Quinn, and Young Justice. DC Universe itself will now become DC Universe Infinite, a premium digital comic book subscription service, and that begins on January 21st, 2021.
Marvel Studios, meanwhile, has found its She-Hulk for the new Disney+ series. Tatiana Maslany herself from Orphan Black will play the title character in She-Hulk.
