Netflix is set to introduce a range of titles encompassing thrilling adventures, captivating narratives and memorable characters for its audience in September.

Here are five shows to look forward to next month:

1. Love is Blind Season 5

The reality dating show’s fifth season will return on Sep 22, with a group of singles seeking love without face-to-face interactions.

The show explores themes of attraction, connection, and the nature of romantic relationships, highlighting the idea that love can be blind to physical appearances.

Participants will aim to form deep emotional connections and establish strong relationships based solely on personality and emotional compatibility. They will then decide whether to propose and get engaged to someone they have only communicated with behind the pods’ walls.

Due to the declining birth rate in Singapore, the government will introduce a new policy that requires all female citizens to serve National Service (NS). As the girls undergo the Girls Basic Military Training (GBMT), they begin to appreciate NS and also learn to overcome their personal obstacles.

3. Kung Fu Panda: The Dragon Knight: Season 3

The Dragon Knight is an animated TV series that follows the journey of Po, the Dragon Warrior, who joins forces with an English knight known as Wandering Blade. Their mission involves recovering four potent weapons stolen by a duo of weasels.

The series picks up a few years after the events of Kung Fu Panda 3. During this time, Po has risen to a position of honour and admiration within the Valley of Peace.

However, his reputation is tarnished when the weasels steal the powerful weapons and frame Po for the crime.

In Season 3 of the series, Po will be in a race against time to destroy the all-powerful Tianshang weapons once and for all. The Dragon Knights will face off against enemies both familiar and unexpected.

4. Ice Cold: Murder, Coffee and Jessica Wongso

Jessica Kumala Wongso is an Indonesian who gained significant media attention due to her involvement in a high-profile murder case.

She murdered her best friend, Wayan Mirna Salihin in 2016 by lacing a cup of coffee with cyanide at a café in Jakarta, Indonesia.

The case received widespread coverage in Indonesia and internationally due to its subsequent legal proceedings. Jessica was eventually found guilty and sentenced to 20 years in prison for the murder of Mirna.
