The Best Movies and TV Shows Coming to Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, and Hulu in September

Stills from each of the movies in a mosaic art style: Meryl Streep with red-rimmed eyes; Michael Fassbender holding a glowing white orb; the cast of The Good Place linking their arms together; and Fozzie Bear with Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog.
Kramer vs. Kramer, Prometheus, The Good Place Season 4, and The Muppets are just a few of the great titles coming to streaming this month. Photo illustration by Slate. Photos by NBC, Columbia Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation, and Disney Enterprises.

Every month, tons of new movies and TV shows become available to stream for free for U.S. subscribers to Netflix, HBO Max, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. With so many different streaming services, it can be hard to keep track of them all—especially if you belong to more than one. Below, we present to you the ultimate streaming guide. We’ll let you decide which service has the best new titles. (All titles arrive Sept. 1 unless otherwise specified.)
