The Best Movies and TV Shows Coming to Netflix, Amazon and More in September

Transparent Musicale Finale
Starts streaming: September 27

Maura Pfefferman is dead — everybody sing! The final season of “Transparent” consists of just one episode, but it’s an ambitious one: a full-fledged movie musical, with music and lyrics by Faith Soloway. (She previously featured most of this material in her one-night cabaret act, “Should ‘Transparent’ Become a Musical?”) Maura’s ex-wife Shelly (Judith Light) and their three children (Amy Landecker, Gaby Hoffmann, Jay Duplass) are muddling through their grief while also sorting out family baggage (“Your Boundary Is My Trigger”), re-establishing relationships (“Your Shoes,” “Crazy People”) and generally trying to turn pain into something positive (the zany finale “Joyocaust”). Jeffrey Tambor, who in 2017 was accused of sexual misconduct on the “Transparent” set and was later fired from the show, does not appear.

The Deuce’ Season 3 Premiere
Starts streaming: September 9

Brace yourself: “The Deuce” is leaping ahead in time once again for its final season. After making a five-year jump between Seasons 1 and 2, this onetime ’70s show is now firmly in the mid-1980s as the various pornographers, prostitutes, strippers and mob fronts continue to collide. New York’s seedy sex trade is facing new challenges as California’s rising porn lords try to corner the market, amateurs and pedophiles take advantage of the VHS revolution and the AIDS epidemic spreads. Amid the tensions, the acclaimed erotica auteur Candy (Maggie Gyllenhaal) and the adult film star Lori (Emily Meade) will learn the limits of their ostensible powers within the industry.
