Between traditional television, video-on-demand releases, and a growing number of streaming services, it can be hard to keep up with what one should watch week to week. Fortune is here to help you keep track of new releases as well as the occasional older title worth checking out. Take a look at this weekend’s notable arrivals, a couple you may have missed earlier in the week, and what else is coming soon:
Amazon Prime Video
Utopia: The eight-part series from showrunner and writer Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl) debuts Sept. 25 and includes actors like John Cusack and Rainn Wilson in its cast. And things get a little meta as Flynn points out to The Hollywood Reporter: “Editing a show that has a plotline about a pandemic while a pandemic is breaking is extraordinarily surreal.”
The Great British Baking Show: Bake Off fans, rejoice! The new season of the baking competition returns to Netflix on a weekly basis Sept. 25, with each episode debuting just a few days after it airs in the U.K.
Tehran: The first three episodes of the eight-episode espionage thriller, focused on an undercover Mossad agent, arrive on Apple TV+ Sept. 25.
The Amber Ruffin Show: Amber Ruffin, a writer for Late Night With Seth Meyers—who has also appeared in her own segments—is stepping into the spotlight with her own series, which arrives on the NBCUniversal streamer Sept. 25.
A Wilderness of Error, a five-part documentary series based on a book by filmmaker and writer Errol Morris, premieres Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. ET on FX.
Dateline sees its 29th season premiere on NBC at 10 p.m. ET.
Two-part series The Comey Rule, which dramatizes events surrounding the 2016 election and is somewhat based on former FBI director James Comey’s book, airs on Showtime Sept. 27 and Sept. 28 at 9 p.m. ET. Read Fortune’s interview with Jeff Daniels, who stars as Comey, here.
Fox’s Sunday night animation block kicks into high gear with the premieres of The Simpsons, Bless the Harts, Bob’s Burgers, and Family Guy—in that order—starting at 8 p.m. ET.
