Disney+ may not have as much original content as it used to, but it’s hard to imagine a better lineup of new series than it has in October. Marvel Studios’ Loki has returned for a second season, and there’s a brand-new Goosebumps series for the young horror fans in your family. Additionally, The Simpsons season 34 has made its streaming premiere, while National Geographic’s Animals Up Close with Bertie Gregory is one of the most charming documentary shows this year.
There’s not going to be a lot new on Disney+ every month, especially when the strike delays finally arrive. But there should still be a few more original series that are set to premiere in 2023. If you want to stay on top of what’s next for the streamer, keep checking back for an updated list of the best shows on Disney+ right now.
Assuming you’re not already subscribed, the Disney Bundle is worth considering. With it, you get Disney+, ESPN, and the ad-supported Hulu plan, making it an impressive value for the price. You’ll enjoy new Disney content, live sports coverage, and Hulu’s various originals.

Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services in the world, with nearly 240 million subscribers. And just what do those people tend to watch? In particular, what is the most popular movie on Netflix?

The best Amazon Prime original series right now
One of the reasons that Amazon Prime Video hasn’t quite captured the zeitgeist like Netflix, Max, or Hulu is that the best Amazon Prime original series just aren’t quite as critically acclaimed or culturally popular. Even though Prime Video trails only Netflix in subscriber count, the original content library doesn’t quite excite people the same way.
Prime Video’s first show, Transparent, won multiple Emmys, but it has struggled to find its culture-capturing hit like Stranger Things. But with a heavier investment in original programming recently, Prime Video is working to close the gap both in quantity and quality. As more shows release, we’re here to keep you up to date on the best Amazon Prime original series.
We’ve also rounded up the best Netflix original series and the best Hulu original series if Prime Video doesn’t have the originals you’re looking for.
