The Simpsons season 35
Hulu animated classic returns, streaming on Monday, October 2
The quintricennial series of The Simpsons is here, as the animated classic celebrates its coral jubilee (yep, that's the name for the 35th year of something!).
The Simpsons season 35 continues the formula of the past 34 seasons: it follows the various misadventures of the yellow-skinned Simpson families, as well as the other inhabitants of Springfield. This season sees Homor become a school crossing guard, Marge fear for the end of Bart's childhood (after 35 years, it's a valid fear!) and another Treehouse of Horror.
While The Simpsons will debut on Fox, it'll come to Hulu the day after it airs, which will see the first episode land on Monday, October 2. Subsequent episodes will land weekly. Expect it to come to Disney Plus in the UK eventually, but likely in several months' time.
Netflix sporting docuseries bends it onto stremer on Wednesday, October 4
The latest in Netflix's long line of sporting documentaries is Beckham, which focuses on — no prizes for guessing who — British footballer David Beckham.
A four-part docuseries, the show promises to feature "candid" discussions with this well-known public figure, to tell the story of his career from Manchester United to World Cup games and beyond. Plenty of other figures will weigh in including footballers Gary Neville, Diego Simeone and Rio Ferdinand, as well as wife Victoria Beckham, her Spice-mate Mel C and David's family.
All of Beckham will be available to watch on Netflix on Wednesday, October 4, so you can watch it in one big streaming binge.

Our Flag Means Death season 2
Max pirating comedy sets sail from Thursday, October 5
Very, very, very loosely based on the real life and times of gentleman pirate Stede Bonnet, OFMD follows a rag-tag band of eccentric sailors and pirates as they try to survive the dangerous waters of piratehood. With an all-star cast including Rhys Darby, Taika Waititi, Ewen Bremner, Joel Fry, Leslie Jones, Kristian Nairn, Vico Ortiz and more, the first season of the show proved a cult hit.
Our Flag Means Death season 2 hits Max on Thursday, October 5 with its first five episodes, and two new ones will land each week until the end of the month. No word on a UK release, but it was a long time before the first season came to iPlayer, so don't hold your breath.

Lupin Part 3
Netflix French crime thriller howls onto screens on Thursday, October 5
It's been a long time coming: Lupin Part 3 brings back the popular French gentleman thief after a two-year wait.
Lupin follows Omar Sy's Assane Diop as he avenges his father after he was framed by a powerful family, and in Part 3 he's being haunted by the ghosts of his past as he tries to escape France with his family. The first two 'parts' (seasons, by another name) of the show were a hit with Netflix viewers, and this third installment promises more of the same.
All of Lupin Part 3 will land on Netflix on Thursday, October 5, in one bingeable block.
