October is here, and there’s even more television to take in. While a certain 1980s nostalgia Netflix series is set to dominate the watercooler talk this month, there are plenty of other fish swimming in the TV sea, from psychological thrillers to frothy soaps to unkillable zombies. Below is our list of October’s cream of the crop.
“Curb Your Enthusiasm”
Synopsis: After a six-year hiatus, Larry David is back with the ninth season of “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. This season, Larry has a new venture that elicits promising feedback from a number of prospective investors — until a string of missteps undermines the plan, at least temporarily.
What You Need To Know: Season nine will have a slew of famous guest stars including: Katie Aselton, Elizabeth Banks, Ed Begley, Jr., Carrie Brownstein, Bryan Cranston, Lauren Graham, Jimmy Kimmel, Nick Offerman, Nasim Pedrad, Elizabeth Perkins, June Diane Raphael, Andrea Savage, Damon Wayans, Jr., Steven Weber and Casey Wilson.
Release Date: The new season launched last night, and airs every Sunday on HBO.
Synopsis: Following the dramatic betrayal by E Corp Executive Tyrell Wellick (MartinWallström) and the titular character (Christian Slater), Elliot Anderson (Rami Malek) returns for season three of USA Network‘s hacker hit. Bent on justice, this season will see Elliot acting back against those who used him previously. With the summertime hacks on HBO and thoughts of Russian interference still looming over the country, Sam Esmail‘s show could not be a more timely television narrative.
What You Need To Know: New cast members will make their “Mr. Robot” debut in this season, including Bobby Cannavale. Little is known about Cannavale’s character in general. However, as his appearance will last the full season, we’ll be sure to see how his portrayal of “Irving” will add a new dynamic to the series.
Release Date: Season 3 arrives on October 11th on USA Network.
Synopsis: “How do we get ahead of crazy, if we don’t know how crazy thinks?” This is the question posed and, possibly answered, in the first season of Netflix‘s new series “Mindhunter.” Taking viewers through the innards of the FBI’s Elite Serial Crime Unit, there is sure to be psychological and physical horror offered under the guise of mystery and drama.
What You Need To Know: David Fincher (“Zodiac“) is one of the co-creators of the series, and has directed multiple episodes, with Asif Kapadia (“Amy“) and Andrew Douglas (“The Amityville Horror“) also getting behind the camera. That should be reason enough to venture down the grimy, gritty, bloodstained rabbit hole of “Mindhunter.”
Release Date: October 13th on Netflix
