Saturday, September 4
8/7c BET Her and P&G Present 8:46 Films (NBC)
Tribeca Studies and Proctor & Gamble collaborate for a series of shorts.
It’s a unique collection of four film shorts that are roughly eight minutes and 46 seconds, inspired by the George Floyd movement. And it features up-and-coming Black talents breaking into the film industry.
Check out the promo!
8/7c Cheer For Your Life (Lifetime)
The Fear the Cheer slate on Lifetime continues with another Saturday night flick about teen girls and their penchant for violence to be on top.
On top of the pyramid, that is. Hazing isn’t all fun and games when people end up dead.
And when a high school girl’s spirit gets crushed by some mean cheerleaders, it’s the least of her worries. Initiation week leads to a dead girl, and suddenly, she goes missing.
Sunday, September 5
8/7c Chesapeake Shores (Hallmark)
With Thomas back in town, he and Mick will do a little nature walk on this next episode, and they get a lot more out of the experience than they bargained for. It’s all fun and games until someone slides down a rocky slope in the middle of the woods!
With time flying, the ladies are busy planning Jess’s marriage to David for the wedding that will beat all weddings.
The most important thing to settle is who Abby will take to the wedding as her plus one. Since the photos will be in the family forevermore, she needs to be sure she takes someone she’d like to revisit often!
8/7c Power Book III: Raising Kanan (Starz)
Unique isn’t messing around anymore.
Scrappy’s assault has officially started the all-out war that has been brewing since the series began.
Raq has no choice now but to throw down the gauntlet, while Kanan and Marvin continue to do their own thing behind Raq’s back. And we have a feeling this isn’t going to end well for anyone.
8/7c Webcam Cheerleaders (Lifetime)
Well that sounds like a saucy one, right?
A young woman transfers to the college where her sister supposedly committed suicide to get to the bottom of what really happened to her.
And what really happened is far more complicated than she could imagine when she learns that her sister was a cheerleader on campus, and she and a group of others got into the webcam girl business.
Secrets are sexy until someone ends up dead.

Will everyone survive?

And Deran and Adrian shippers may want to brace yourselves, as the synopsis reads that Deran will get some news about his surfer boyfriend at the center of so much trouble. But is it good news or bad? Tune in to find out!

We’re headed down to the wire as the final five contestants compete for their chance to win the title, and things are only going downhill from here.

HBO Max is not releasing any information about this one ahead of air, so we’re inclined to believe it’ll be a big one.
We already know Scarecrow is ramping up his team, but Jason is also making his own, thanks to the concoction.
With Lady Vic in the mix, the Titans are going to need to band together to save the lives of everyone they love.
Maybe we’ll finally get to see Tim Drake as Robin.

This is it. Three seasons after Lucifer was unceremoniously dumped by Fox, the Netflix megahit will, once again, conclude.
Despite his death, the trailer and key art suggest that he’ll still be an important part of Lucifer Season 6, and with all the life-and-death chances offered to others, it’s only fitting.
It also looks like Chloe is going to get the full Luciferian experience of being whisked away in his arms. Who knows what else might happen? All know is that it will be the topic of conversation once it drops.
Well, this looks, uh, interesting.
It seems that our obsession with guns, violence, and vengeance continues unhindered despite the constant outcries that it’s bad, mmm-kay?
In Kate, after she’s poisoned, a ruthless criminal operative has less than 24 hours to exact revenge on her enemies and in the process forms an unexpected bond with the daughter of one of her past victims.
