Pokémon Journeys: Part two of this kid-friendly animated series will be available to watch on Netflix starting Sept. 11.

The streaming service continues to add some popular sitcoms from back in the day by bringing Girlfriends into the mix on Sept. 11. Documentary The Social Dilemma, which explores the “dangerous human impact of social networking,” also debuted on the streamer earlier this week, along with Cuties—the French coming-of-age comedy-drama, which has been the subject of much controversy.

HBO

Coastal Elites: The “socially distanced comedic satire” starring Bette Midler, Kaitlyn Dever, Dan Levy, Sarah Paulson, and Issa Rae comes to HBO and HBO Max at 8 p.m. ET on Sept. 12.

Hulu

Woke, starring Lamorne Morris (New Girl) as a Black cartoonist who gets embroiled in a case of police brutality, arrived on Hulu earlier this week.

On VOD

I Am Woman: This biopic from director Unjoo Moon tells the story of “I Am Woman” singer Helen Reddy (Tilda Cobham-Hervey) whose song became the unofficial anthem of the women’s liberation movement in the 1970s.
