© 9to5Mac | Apple TV+ Guide: Here are all the Apple TV shows and movies available now

You can watch across all of your screens and pick up where you left off on any device. Apple TV+ costs $4.99 per month. Here’s every Apple original television show and movie available now on Apple TV+, as well as the latest trailers …

Apple TV+ content is available exclusively through the Apple TV app. You can watch on your Apple TV set-top box, iPhone, or iPad as you might expect.

The TV app is also available on other platforms like Amazon Fire TVRoku, and even the web at tv.apple.comRead this post for more details on everywhere you can watch Apple TV.

Apple TV+ offers original comedies, dramas, thrillers, documentaries, and kids shows. However, unlike most other streaming services, Apple TV+ does not include a back catalog of any kind.

For your $4.99/month subscription, you can watch all of Apple’s originals as listed below. You can download to watch offline too. Apple is adding new content every single month.

How to watch the free Apple TV+ shows

The TV app is the exclusive destination for Apple TV+, but the TV app is confusing because it blends together purchasable TV shows and movies from the iTunes Store, which you can buy or rent, the integration of content from other apps like Amazon Prime and BBC iPlayer, and Apple TV Channels.

The Watch Now screen does not really distinguish between content that you own and can watch, and just Apple’s general recommendations. Hopefully, the TV app interface will be revamped soon with better features and easier navigation.

But for the time being, the easiest way to get started with Apple TV+ is to open the TV app, go to the Watch Now tab, and then scroll down until you find the circular Apple TV+ channel icon. You may have to scroll down a lot, and the position of this icon on the page changes periodically.

However, once you locate it, tap that and you will be taken to the Apple TV+ channel page. This shows you all of the Apple TV+ shows and movies available to watch, separated by categories like comedy, drama, or family fun.

Note that tv.apple.com is very stripped down compared to the native TV app on devices, and it only shows Apple's original content. Both the website and the Mac TV app lack key features like the ability to skip the intro or automatic next episode suggestions when you finish an episode.

What Apple TV+ shows have been renewed for the second season?

The first batch of Apple TV+ shows was released on November 1st. As Apple is trying to quickly grow its content library, many of these shows were renewed for the second season before they even premiered.

So far, Apple has officially renewed Central Park, Dickinson, For All Mankind, Home Before Dark, Little America, Mythic Quest, See, Servant, The Morning Show, Truth Be Told, and Trying.

What is less certain is when we will be able to watch the new episodes. The coronavirus pandemic has disrupted TV production globally with all projects currently unable to film. To quote some specific examples, The Morning Show was about 60% done filming season 2 when they had to halt production, Servant was filming episode 4 of 10 of its second season installment, and For All Mankind has about one month left of filming. (Dickinson completed season 2 filming last year, and is currently in post-production.)

It is believed these shows were originally planning to release their second seasons about a year after season one, around the October/November/December timeframe. That release date seems less likely now given the delays. It is possible Apple resorts to split seasons; releasing season two of its flagships in two halves, in order to at least get some episodes out this year.
