Nurse those post-holiday blues with our guide to September: from cosy box sets to immersive exhibitions, here's everything you should be checking out this month.
Top Boy Season 3 – Netflix
Dushane (Ashley Walters) and Sully’s (Kane Robinson) fate will finally be decided in the concluding series of Top Boy. Promising to be a raw and riveting end to the story, Netflix’s much-loved London gang epic is sadly ending, this time, for good. Airing on Channel 4 between 2011 and 2013, the show was cancelled but then revived by the American streaming service and Canadian superstar Drake in 2019. Little Simz and Dave are set for comebacks in their roles as Shelley and Modie.
Stream from September 7.
Sex Education Series 4 – Netflix
Netflix’s taboo-breaking series Sex Education is returning for its final series at the end of September. What lies ahead for the students of Moordale waits to be seen, but one thing’s for certain is that there’s sure to be drama. Otis and Maeve’s on-and-off relationship normally takes centre stage but the destinies of Eric and Adam, Lily and Ola and other relationships make for an intriguing end to the groundbreaking show.
Stream from September 21.

Coco Chanel: The Legend And The Life
Celebrating the life and legacy of French fashion provocateur Coco Chanel, this new V&A exhibition is a must-visit for any thread fanatics out there.

London Fashion Week
It’s that time of the year again when our style conscience is heightened by the social media sensory overload that is fashion week. London’s edition is just around the corner. Ripping up the rule book with unapologetic runway displays, the capital is known for its more chaotic shows, compared to the glamour and grace of Paris and Milan. JW Anderson and Chet Lo will provide the quirkier moments, while Burberry’s contemporary showcase of British heritage, thanks to Daniel Lee, has already become an unmissable event.
Taking place from September 15-19.
