Sex Education, autumn TV, The Super Models and everything else to watch this week


This week, Kayleigh Dray sets the mood for autumn with some fall-inspired shows, and talks us through what to watch.

The Super Models

Charting the careers of fashion's most famous faces (think Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista and Christy Turlington, no less!), this candid documentary promises to take viewers behind the camera and beyond the catwalk. Wednesday 20 September; Apple TV+

Sex Education: Season 4

We can't believe this is the final season of Sex Education (who will heal our inner teens now?), but we're incredibly excited to see how the groundbreaking comedy brings Otis, Eric, Maeve and the rest of the Moordale crew's stories to an end. Especially as it comes with a hearty helping of Gillian Anderson and Dan Levy-fuelled brilliance. Thursday 21 September; Netflix

No One Will Save You

With Booksmart's Kaitlyn Dever at its helm, this sci-fi film – all about a troubled young woman's experience of a global alien invasion plot – needs to be on your radar. Especially as UFOs keep creeping into the news of late.  Friday 22 September; Disney+

... the shows that make us feel autumnal AF

"I know it's incredibly basic to say that autumn is your favourite season, but autumn really is my favourite season," says Kayleigh. "Crunchy leaves underfoot, misty mornings, steaming mugs of hot chocolates (or a pumpkin spice latte) and an air of possibility and spookiness. What's not to love?

"I know, I know – it's been pretty damn hot so far this month, which means we've yet had a chance to dig out our trusted flannels and black boots. So I get it, I really do, if you're not feeling those autumn vibes yet. Thankfully, there's a whole host of brilliant TV series out there that should have you craving all things fall in no time.

"If you're in the mood for a mother-daughter story set in a small US town, then look no further than Gilmore Girls (the televisual equivalent of a cosy knitted beanie) or Ginny And Georgia (a distinctly edgier beanie, likely with a gun hidden beneath it), both of which are streaming on Netflix right now.

"Those who love a (hilarious) haunted house would be hard-pressed to find a better show to binge than BBC's Ghosts. If autumn is synonymous with a lavish period drama, try Downton Abbey (ITVX), Dickinson (Apple TV+), Little Women (Prime Video), or, y'know, any of the Bridgerton series (all on Netflix). And true crime buffs everywhere need to get on the Only Murders In The Building (Disney+) bandwagon, stat.

"Ever since Strictly Come Dancing first aired in 2004, its theme song has served as something of a Pavlovian bell, reminding us that the seasons have well and truly shifted – and there's a new series premiering via BBC One this weekend. And we're 100% here for the sepia tones of Life On Mars, especially as its eerie vibes are a good way to warm yourself up for Halloween month.

"Throw in the gentle comedy of our beloved Schitt's Creek (Netflix), which is every bit as autumnal as a big slab of pumpkin pie, and the major back-to-school vibes of Motherland (BBC iPlayer), and you have plenty of shows to, ahem, fall in love with this season. Which will you be streaming first?"

5 cancelled TV shows we want revived, like, yesterday

"Of all the cancelled TV shows to be scooped up and saved this year, I wasn't expecting it to be Neighbours," says Kayleigh, "especially when so many brilliant TV series – like Firefly and Freaks And Geeks before them – have been unceremoniously killed off.

"So, just in case any benevolent TV gods are listening, I have taken it upon myself to draw up a list of those shows that need at least one more season. At least…"

Anne Lister (Suranne Jones) might be a queer icon, but we only got two glorious seasons of this period drama before it was culled by its US co-producer HBO. Still, the BBC is still fighting to find a new partner for its hit series, so we'll never give up hope that there are more episodes in our not-so-distant futures. Watch on BBC iPlayer

Who the heck thought it was a good idea to cancel GLOW? With a starry cast, plenty of juicy drama and outrageous 80s leotards, this show lifted the curtain on the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling, and we're not ready to be shut out just yet, OK? Especially as it ended on the mother of all cliffhangers… Watch on Netflix now

The OA was good. It was really bloody good. It was so good, in fact, that when Netflix axed Brit Marling's twisted series about a missing blind girl returning home after seven years away, it incited intense fan outcry, a flashmob and even a hunger strike. Go figure. Watch on Netflix now

Starring Zoë Kravitz, this series revisited the film adaptation of Nick Hornby's novel "from a female perspective" – and it was lauded by fans and critics alike. So, why did Hulu pull the plug? And can they be convinced to… erm… un-pull it, as it were? Only time will tell, we suppose. Watch on Disney+ now

Sumptuous costumes, biting wit and sublime tragicomedy? The Great – all about the rise of the longest-reigning female ruler in Russian history – had it all, and yet, it has still been cancelled after just three seasons. Naturally, we're all bereft. Fingers crossed some rival streaming service picks it up from the dust quickly, eh? Watch on Prime Video now
