Marvel Studios’ Loki Season 2 | October 6 on Disney+

It's that time to start carving the pumpkins and brushing that sweet tooth. Yes, it's soon going to be October, otherwise known as "spooky season."  Disney+ will do its best to celebrate all the tricks and treats of Halloween with its new and returning Disney+ shows, original movies, and season finales that are set to stream in October 2023.

Everything coming to Hulu in October 2023

If you smell pumpkin spice in the air and feel a slight chill in the air, that must mean one thing: fall is finally here. If you want a great selection of movies, new and classic TV shows, and buzzworthy content you can't find on any other streamer, Hulu is the destination for you as the weather cools off.

From intriguing new original series like American Horror Stories to returning shows like Shoresy, as well as movies like Cobweb, The Boogeyman, and Doctor Sleep, Hulu subscribers will find something spooky for everyone in the household.

What’s new on HBO and Max
Matthew Goode and Teresa Palmer in A Discovery of Witches.

As fans, we've become accustomed to the idea of characters crossing over from films and TV shows, but there's rarely been a crossover between streaming platforms. However, AMC+ and Warner Bros. Discovery have announced an unusual (and temporary) partnership that will bring a handful of AMC's original series to Max in September and October for no extra cost. Even users who subscribe to Max's ad tier will be able to watch shows like A Discovery of Witches, Interview with the Vampire, Fear the Walking Dead, Dark Winds, and Gangs of London. That's a great deal considering that things would be pretty quiet on Max without it.

Beyond the new movie titles coming to HBO and Max at the beginning of the month, there's not much else of interest. Fans of Discovery's reality-based TV series may disagree, however, as there's plenty of programming from Food Network and Travel Channel throughout the month if you're so inclined. This month will also see the debut of CNN Max, a live stream of news on Max itself from the CNN newsroom. Suddenly, Max is looking more and more like a cable channel disguised as a streaming service, but the news is definitely something that some users have asked for. You can find our complete list of what's coming to HBO and Max in September below. Titles without "HBO" in the listing will only be available on Max. DT's film and TV show recommendations are in bold.
