September also marks the launch of several new original Netflix series, including the animated series Q-Force (September 2nd), comedy On the Verge (September 7th), and the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe reboot (September 16th).

Co-created by Sean Hayes and Michael Schur, Q-Force centers on Agent Steve Maryweather (voiced by Hayes), the Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency until he came out as gay. After the agency sent him off into obscurity, he assembles an LGBTQ+ squad of misfits dubbed as the Q-Force.

On the Verge, meanwhile, stars Julie Delpy, Sarah Jones, Alexia Landeau, and Elisabeth Shue as four women who are on the verge. Set in the crazy world of LA, the comedy series dives into the lives of a chef, a single mom, an heiress, and a job seeker as they dig into love and work prior to the pandemic.

Lastly, the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe is a reboot of the 1980s animated series of the same name. Co-produced by Mattel Television, the new CG-animated series is set on the planet of Eternia and follows a young lost prince who discovers the powers of Grayskull and transforms into He-Man, the Master of the Universe. The reboot brings the classic battle between He-Man and evil Skeletor to new heights as both hero and villain forge new and mighty teams.
