5 Netflix Reality Shows to Watch in September
Netflix has been killing it all quarantine with its selection of dramas, classics, comedies, and true crime fare. Several series and films hit the platform with new installments and others made sparkling debuts during the past few months. Binge-watching has been easy.
But the streamer is also making waves in the reality television realm, drawing viewers in with offerings such as The Circle, Selling Sunset, Love Is Blind, and Rhythm + Flow. Here’s a look at five original Netflix reality shows dropping fresh episodes in September.
‘Get Organized with The Home Edit’
Reese Witherspoon serves as an executive producer for this home organization series. Season 1 introduces viewers to Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of The Home Edit, two professional organizers who are ready to reconfigure any space.
They travel across the country to tackle clutter and projects for their clients. That includes everyday folks and celebrities such as Witherspoon, Rachel Zoe, Khloe Kardashian, Eva Longoria, Marietta “Retta” Sirleaf, Neil Patrick Harris, and Jordana Brewster. Watch season 1 on Sept. 9.
Tituss Burgess, star of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, hosts this glamorous karaoke competition that includes a growing cash jackpot. Instead of using judges, the show spot-checks with a vocal analyzer to match a contestant’s vocal skills with the original singers’ rendition.
To spice things up, there’s a different genre/theme each episode and the lyrics are randomly selected. Season 1 of Sing On! lands on Netflix on Sept. 16 and will feature eight episodes.
‘American Barbecue Showdown’
Taking a cue from shows like Chopped or Beat Bobby Flay, American Barbecue Showdown is a new food competition series that pits contestants’ skills against each other as they vie for the champion title.
Using all the smoking, braising, and charring techniques in their tool kits, they’ll be put to the test in eight episodes. Check it out on Sept. 18.
‘Jack Whitehall: Travels with my Father’
British comedian Jack Whitehall returns with season 4 of his travel adventure series. Father and son traverse new places to bond, laugh, and get on each other’s nerves.
So far, they’ve checked out a clown festival in Odessa, military training in Kiev, naked yoga in Los Angeles, and the city of Las Vegas. Where will they go in season 4? Find out on Sept. 22.
Country star Coffey Anderson and his wife Criscilla star in this reality show that follows their home life, careers, and faith. The series will also touch on Criscilla’s stage 4 colon cancer journey.
Anderson told Brownwood News: “It’s about family and it’s a goofy, funny way to tell a family story. The catch is you have a black country singer married to a white hip hop dancer and they live in L.A. You’ve got a boy that’s for real Brown County, I smell like Underwood’s peach cobbler and Allsups’ burritos, and now you throw me in the middle of L.A. It’s funny, I don’t care who you are.”
The couple’s three children will also feature in the series and it’s set to be a family-friendly option on Netflix. Country-ish debuts on Sept. 25.
