Here’s everything new that you can watch (and everything that has been renewed) on Apple TV+

Apple TV+ has proved rather quickly that it can give any streaming platform a run for its money when it comes to the diverse roster of shows that they have produced since inception. At the moment, the service offers original comedies, dramas, thrillers, documentaries, and kids shows. The app does allow you to buy or rent content from other apps, but what really has us hooked is all the original non-back content material available to consume. 
 
So here’s everything on Apple TV+ that has been renewed for a second season, all of which should be trickling in from November 2020 onwards. Many of these shows were officially renewed even before the series premiered. Official renewals include Central Park, Dickinson, All For Mankind, Home Before Dark, Little America, Mythic Quest, See, Servant, The Morning Show, Truth Be Told, and Trying. 
 
The official release dates for these shows may be tentative owing to the coronavirus pandemic which has delayed production on several TV and film projects around the world. Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston starrer The Morning Show was already 60% into production on season 2, Servant was on the 5th episode being filmed, and For All Mankind had one month of shooting left before everything shut down. Dickinson is already in post-production. While some shows are going to trickle in from November (perhaps in installments or halves), it is possible that the timeframe has been delayed further. 
 
Other upcoming original films/shows on the service include:
  1. On the Rocks - a romcom feature starring Rashida Jones and Bill Murray, and directed by Sofia Coppola which will premiere in October. 
  2. Tiny World - an animal docuseries narrated by Paul Rudd, available from October 2nd onwards.
  3. Tehran - the service’s first non-English series, arriving September 25.
