October is here, which means it’s time for pumpkin-spiced everything, and curling up in front of the TV with fun sized Halloween candy that you may or may not have stolen from a child. Candy is bad for kids, so in a sense you’re helping them.
CraveTV has a huge lineup of hot new shows to keep you entertained all month long, including the highly anticipated Star Trek: Discovery and Jamie Foxx’s SHOWTIME series White Famous, starring SNL alum Jay Pharoah.
Music fans will definitely want to check out Meatloaf: In and Out of Hell, as well as the new HBO documentary The Defiant Ones, which chronicles the incredible rise of Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine.
Since it’s October, you know things are about to get scary. Like, Rosemary’s Baby-level scary. Consider yourself warned.
Check out some of the great titles coming to CraveTV in October!
Star Trek: Discovery, White Famous and more great titles coming to CraveTV in October
STAR TREK: DISCOVERY (Season 1)New episodes every Monday
It's been 50 years since the original Star Trek: Discovery hit the small screen and while the intergalactic drama is just as intense, some things have changed. Most notably, the special effects are incredible, and for the first time a title in the Star Trek franchise is being led by a woman of colour, with Sonequa Martin-Green as Michael Burnham. How do you say, “It's about time" in Klingon?CraveTV
MEATLOAF: IN AND OUT OF HELLOctober 13
It seems sadly fitting that an artist who has become world renowned for his darkly theatrical music would have a melancholy and drama-filled existence offstage as well. In Meatloaf: In and Out of Hell, the life of the man with the booming voice is uncovered, including interviews with Meatloaf's childhood friends and tales of being rejected by every record company in music. TBD on whether we finally find out what Meatloaf wouldn't do for love.CraveTV
EPISODES (Season 5)October 1 (Seasons 1-4 available now)
In the final season of the award-winning SHOWTIME series, Matt LeBlanc's alter ego must try to put his inflated ego aside to ensure his next series is a hit and will feed his bank account...and his ego. His final act could cement his lifelong partnership with Beverly and Sean, or it could be the final straw in a HUGE pile of straws that finally breaks the friendship's back.SHOWTIME
WHITE FAMOUS (Season 1)New episodes every Sunday starting October 15
SNL alum, and master of impressions, Jay Pharoah stars as a pseudo-Jamie Foxx in SHOWTIME's new comedy White Famous. The series follows Pharoah's character as he builds his standup career in a not-so-woke 2017. Foxx will appear in the series and use actual events from his personal life in the script, which means we will be closely watching for any Katie Holmes references.SHOWTIME
BLADE RUNNERAvailable until October 23
The reviews have started pouring in for Blade Runner 2049 and it appears that critics have run out of positive adjectives to explain how amazing the new film truly is. One review we read actually said it made the new Star Wars movies look like they were done with Lego. Those are some intergalactic fighting words. The new film, out October 6, is a continuation of the original, so now would be a great time to remember exactly where we left Harrison Ford in 1982.Getty
THE DEFIANT ONESOctober 6
With the invention of the Internet, the supply of new music seems never-ending. That's why it's so shocking to learn that two men have had their hand on almost every album currently on the charts in one way or another. We may recognize Jimmy Iovine as the president of Interscrope and know Dr. Dre as the man behind NWA and pricey headphones, but thanks to a new documentary from HBO, we now know them as two of the most important figures in music over the past three decades.HBO
SALEM (Season 3)October 6 (Seasons 1-2 available now)
You wouldn't think a show about a time in history where women were burned at the stake would be so sexy, but we're three seasons into Salem and it's still doing a terrible job of making witchcraft look anything less than badass. In the final season, the witches are in charge and want to bring the devil to Salem. Not a huge shocker, but it turns out the devil is a liar. Ugh, men.CraveTV
MYSTERY OF THE ALASKAN MUMMIESOctober 6
It's October, which means this is the perfect month to force your loved ones to watch scary movies with you. If you need some help convincing the scaredy cats in your life, try going with the educational route. Did you know there were mummies in Alaska? Freaky and cool (or cold)! Find out about your local(ish) mummies in Mystery of the Alaskan Mummies. It's the perfect blend of scholastic and scurry.Discovery
ROSEMARY'S BABY (Season 1)Available until October 31
Would you want to remake the most cursed movie ever made? Neither would we, but we'll definitely watch it. The 2014 version of Mia Farrow's 1968 film had fewer actual deaths during the shoot, but now the horror is stretched out into four terrifying episodes starring Zoe Saldana. Don't watch if you're preparing for parenthood. Do watch if you're preparing for Halloween.CraveTV
TEEN WOLF (Season 6b)October 13 (Seasons 1-6a available now)
A show of hands, who actually thought the remake of Michael J. Fox's 1980's classic Teen Wolf would last a full season? Even more shocking, who thought it would actually be so freaking awesome? The MTV series continued to get more intriguing and dramatic with each new episode, finally coming to a thrilling and howl-worthy conclusion in its sixth season. Scott + Stiles = Forever.MTV
