STREAM THIS NEW SHOW:

Cobra Kai Season 5
Netflix, 9 September

The Karate Kid reboot/sequel series is returning to Netflix with its fifth season this Friday. Following the lives of Daniel (Ralph Macchio) and Johnny (William Zabka) more than three decades after their big karate blowout, the fifth season of Cobra Kai picks up after the All Valley Tournament and promises both silliness and nostalgia in bloody and chaotic ten new episodes.


GET THE POPCORN FOR THIS:

Pinocchio
Disney+, 8 September

Beloved wooden puppet Pinocchio is coming to life in this Disney+ live-action film. Debuting this Thursday, the retelling of Pinocchio’s story stars Benjamin Evan Ainsworth as the titular character and Tom Hanks as Geppetto, Joseph Gordon-Levitt as Jiminy Cricket, and others. Based on the 1883 Italian children’s book The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, the new Pinocchio follows a similar whimsical look and atmosphere to the 1940 Disney cartoon.

SETTLE IN WITH A CUP OF TEA AND READ THIS:

All That’s Left Unsaid
Tracey Lien

This thought-provoking debut novel from Tracey Lien centres on Ky, a young journalist returning to Cabramatta, Australia after the sudden murder of her younger brother, Denny. Ky is determined to investigate the murder of his brother, which the police conveniently tagged as a gang or drug-related offence. Though there were tons of witnesses in a crowded restaurant when the murder happened, no one was willing to come forward with information. Ky refuses to believe the police’s conclusion since his brother was not involved in any sort of nefarious activity.


CRANK UP THE VOLUME FOR THIS:

Legend
John Legend, 9 September

American singer and songwriter John Legend is back with his eighth studio album titled… Legend! The collection drops this Friday and features collaborations with various artists such as Saweetie, Rick Ross, Muni Long, Jazmine Sullivan, Ty Dolla $ign, and more.

Forget Me
Lewis Capaldi, 9 September

Someone You Loved hitmaker Lewis Capaldi is also releasing his brand new song Forget Me this weekend. This is the first new single of this Scottish singer and songwriter in a couple of years. Is this song part of a follow-up collection after his debut album in 2019? Fans are eager to know.
