Full list of Apple TV+ movies and TV shows October 2020

A morning show drama, a series about space and a big-budget dystopian join the list of Apple TV+ exclusives.


Apple has invested massively in its content production over the last few years and has attracted top creative talent. This includes the likes of M. Night Shyamalan, Oprah Winfrey, Alfonso Cuarón and Steven Spielberg. As a result, there are plenty of TV and movie fans eager to test the new Apple TV+ platform and see what the hype is all about.

Apple TV+ launch lineup

A few series are available now, including See, The Morning Show, Dickinson and For All Mankind. Subscribers can enjoy the documentary The Elephant Queen, the first episode of Oprah Winfrey’s book-related talk show and several children’s series, such as Helpsters, Snoopy in Space and Ghostwriter. There are even shows that have gotten critical acclaim, like Little America and Visible: Out on TV.

More Apple TV+ originals will be added each month.

Here’s the bad news: If you plan to take advantage of the free trial and watch everything in one week, you’ll be sorely disappointed. While some shows dropped all episodes at once, others are rolling out weekly.

For instance, all episodes of Dickinson launched on November 1. However, only three episodes were made available at launch for The Morning Show, See and For all Mankind, with the rest released weekly.

But Apple TV+ does have some big plans in store for the following months, with plenty of titles currently in production. The platform seems to be focusing on feel-good/inspiring content overall, although some thrillers and dramas could boast a darker tone.

Here’s a complete list of all the Apple TV+ movies and TV shows announced so far.
