Ryan Murphy is back with another Netflix series.

The superstar producer has delivered “The Politician” and “Hollywood” to disappointing critical reception after striking a lucrative deal with the streaming giant in 2018. His next project, “Ratched,” is a prequel to the Oscar-winning movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” centered on Sarah Paulson’s troubling Nurse Ratched, originally played by Louise Fletcher.

Every month, Business Insider runs down the five most anticipated new shows using data from television-tracking app TV Time, derived from its millions of users around the world who use the app to track and react to what they’re watching.

September also sees the debut of the mysterious sci-fi series “Raised By Wolves,” from “Alien” and “Gladiator” director Ridley Scott. It premieres September 20 on HBO Max, but has already received positive reviews and has an 82% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes.

Below are the five most anticipated new shows of September:
