The Secrets She Keeps: Season 2 (AU)

In the new season of this drama thriller, which opens two years after the events in Season 1, explosive secrets spin Meghan (Jessica De Gouw, Vienna Blood, The Crown) onto a catastrophic and ultimately fatal course, while Agatha’s (Laura Carmichael, Downton Abbey, The Spanish Princess) new obsession sees them collide in a way that no one will anticipate.

Costarring Todd Lasance (Darby and Joan, ANZAC Girls) and Ryan Corr (House of the Dragon, The Commons), The Secrets She Keeps: Season 2 premieres in the US and Canada as a six-episode binge on Thursday, September 1, exclusively on Sundance Now and its digital channels, including Sundance Now on Amazon, the AMC+ streaming bundle, and AMC+ on Amazon.

Heartbreak High (AU)

In this reboot of the popular 1990s teen drama series, an incendiary mural exposes everyone’s secret hook-ups at Hartley High, and its author, Amerie (Ayesha Madon, The Moth Effect), must grapple with the messy fall-outs as a total outcast.

Heartbreak High, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Wednesday, September 14, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

Gymnastics Academy: A Second Chance (AU)

In this family drama, Kyra Berry (Jada-Lee Henry, Ready Set Dance), a 14-year-old American gymnast, gets a second (and possibly final) chance to chase her dreams — and a scholarship to an elite gymnastics academy — in faraway Australia after an injury.

Gymnastics Academy: A Second Chance, a Netflix Series, premieres globally on Friday, September 16, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)


The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone (AU)

Filmed over 10 years, this half-hour documentary reveals the memories of Georgie Stone, an Australian transgender teen and one of the world’s most dynamic trans-kid activists, as she helps to change laws, affirms her gender, finds her voice, emerges into adulthood, and, for the first time, gains control of her own story.

The Dreamlife of Georgie Stone, a Netflix Film, premieres globally on Thursday, September 22, exclusively on Netflix. (You can set a reminder for it now.)

Mystery Road: Origin (AU)

Mark Coles Smith (Halifax: Retribution, The Circuit) stars in this origin story series as Jay Swan, the Indigenous detective played by Aaron Pedersen in the films Mystery Road and Goldstone and the television series spinoff Mystery Road.

It’s 1999, and the charismatic young Police Constable Swan arrives at his new station in the Outback. Fresh from the city and tipped for big things, Jay might be the new copper, but he isn’t new to this town. His estranged father, Jack (Kelton Pell, The Gods of Wheat Street), lives here, as does the woman who will change his life forever: Mary (Tuuli Narkle, Bad Behaviour).

Costars include Daniel Henshall (TURN: Washington’s Spies), Toby Leonard Moore (Billions), Steve Bisley (The Heart Guy), Salme Geransar (Clickbait), Clarence Ryan (Cleverman), Hayley McElhinney (The Heart Guy), Lisa Flanagan (Total Control), Caroline Brazier (Rake), and newcomer Grace Chow, amongst others.

Mystery Road: Origin, an Acorn TV Original, premieres in the US and Canada with its first two episodes on Monday, September 26, exclusively on Acorn TV and its digital channels, including Acorn TV on Amazon. New episodes of the six-episode series will debut in pairs through October 10.

Sissy (AU)

This comedy-drama-horror film stars Aisha Dee (The Bold Type, Channel Zero) and Hannah Barlow (Two Sentence Horror Stories, Breaker Morant: The Retrial) as Cecilia and Emma, who had been tween-age BFFs. They were never going to let anything come between them — until Alex (Emily De Margheriti, The Missing Sister) arrived on the scene.

Twelve years later, Cecilia is a successful social media influencer living the dream of an independent, modern millennial woman. Then she runs into Emma for the first time in over a decade. After reconnecting, Emma invites Cecilia to her bachelorette weekend at a remote cabin in the mountains, where Alex proceeds to make Cecilia’s weekend a living hell.

Sissy, a Shudder Original, has its post-cinema streaming premiere in the US and Canada on Thursday, September 29, exclusively on Shudder and its digital channels, including Shudder on Amazon, the AMC+ streaming bundle, and AMC+ on Amazon.
