In news we all need, Stan just increased their Aussie productions while dropping a stellar September lineup.

We’re all in the market for good news at the moment and that’s why Stan’s upcoming slate of original productions and new releases has been met with open arms.

Stan have announced they are ramping up their slate of local and internationally produced Stan Original television series and films.

The streaming service will increase their production output to over 30 productions a year over the next five years, with the upcoming releases sitting alongside Stan’s other award-winning original productions such as Bloom, The Commons, The Gloaming and The Other Guy.

The upcoming production list includes Eden, an eight-part original drama series from Australia’s rising creative star Vanessa Gazy and the creators of Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries and Skins. 

There’s also Dom and Adrian: 2020, an original comedy special from the creators of the Bondi Hipsters, Christiaan Van Vuuren and Nick Boshier along with After The Night, a four-part true-crime docuseries exploring the legacy of one of Australia’s deadliest serial killers: Eric Edgar Cooke. 

In news that is sure to delight diehard Aussie TV fans Bump, a ten-part, half-hour original drama series that stars Claudia Karvan, and reunites the creative team behind Love My Way and The Secret Life of Us, is currently in production.

Stan's expanded original production slate will include investments and co-productions with international partners, including Hollywood studios and major international networks, and is a welcome injection into the Australian arts industry after the rollercoaster that has been 2020 and the COVID-19 pandemic.

But while we count down the days to these new local productions hitting our screens, Stan has updated their entertainment selection for September with some of the finest films and television shows to keep us going.

From Paddington, to Clueless, here is every TV show and movie coming to Stan in September 2020.

Watch: If our fave Stan series; The Bold Type, was in real life. Post continues below.

The Twilight Saga

Premieres: September 17

ADVERTISEMENT

Yes, Stan is dropping all five twilight films for your viewing pleasure, on the same day.

The Twilight Saga is a series of films based on Stephanie Meyer's four best-selling young-adult fantasy novels.

The story follows Bella Swan, a teen that has moved to Forks, Washington, as she falls in love with local boy, Edward Cullen. Though Edward appears as a 17-year-old, he's actually a 104-year-old vampire, so naturally there are ... complications.

It's a hugely popular teen romance with lots of vampires and werewolves, and it is very binge-worthy.

Selma

Premieres: September 7

2014 film Selma is a heart-wrenching historical drama based on the 1965 American voting rights marches led by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

It received four Golden Globe nominations and won an Academy Award for best original song and features a stellar cast including Oprah Winfrey, David Oyelowo and Stephen James.

It's a must-see film, directed by Ava DuVernay and written by Paul Webb.

Paddington

Premieres: September 4

One for the whole family!

Paddington is a 2014 comedy written and directed by Paul King based on the stories of Paddington bear, who has moved from the jungles of Peru to the streets of London.

It's very lovely and wholesome, and it should keep the kids (okay, and you) distracted for 90-something minutes!

Need I say more?

Clueless

Premieres: September 15

Clueless is our favourite coming-of-age teen movie, and it is just what we need right now.

In case you haven't seen it, Clueless is a 1995 film that follows the glamourous life of Cher Horowitz as she befriends her school's new girl, Tai Fraser.

It's filled with 90s fashion and feminist vibes, and will be sure to take your mind off of...well, 2020 so far.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off

Premieres: September 15

Speaking of American teen comedies...

Ferris Bueller's Day Off is a 1986 comedy classic written and directed by John Hughes.

As the title suggests, it centres around a kid named Ferris Bueller, as he skips school for the day. Of course, chaos ensues.

It's a hilarious classic, and you can stream it in on Stan mid-September.
