A new monthly feature to let you know what to watch in the romance, Romanticism, and period drama genres. From TV to Streaming to Movie Releases and even Video On Demand.

For the past couple of months, we’ve put up a weekly watchlist for romance and period drama. However, the watchlists didn’t change much from week to week! So, we felt it would be better to put up a monthly watchlist instead with a focus on premieres, important episodes, new movie releases, etc. Rather than on every episode every week! We hope this will be helpful to all you Romance and Period Drama fans out there as you choose what to see in theaters, watch live, DVR, or even rent on demand!

For this month, since we’ve already done the first couple weeks of September, this Watchlist will focus on the last two weeks.

For earlier weeks in September, see Romance and Period Drama Watchlist For the Week of September 9 AND Romance and Period Drama Watchlist For the Week of September 2.

Enjoy the September 2018 watchlist below!

About

Below you’ll find watchlist highlights for premieres, standout episodes of current shows (IE: season finales), new movie releases, and new VOD for the month of September 2018. What you won’t find are all the repeats, movies on every paid cable channel (HBO, Showtime, STARZ, etc.) or streaming, and other extraneous content. This watchlist is for what’s new or a special standout in the genres of romance, Romanticism, and Period Drama! So, it’s not inclusive of everything. Schedules and release dates are subject to change.
