A good reason to stay at home to watch new series. And in October, there is plenty to do! Between The Flame, Jonathan Cohen's new series on Canal +, The Haunting of Bly Manor, Netflix horror series or the original creation OCS Moah, you will be busy … and disoriented. Here are the top 10 series not to be missed in October 2020.


In addition to broadcasting HBO series (in particular), OCS is also producing more and more original series: we laughed in front of Irresponsable, traveled with Missions and made our return to high school with Les Grands. This time, back very (very) back with Moah which takes place … during Prehistory. A series that will destabilize more than one viewer and for good reason: it contains no dialogue and no music! A first for a French series. A unique experience in which we follow the daily life of Moah, a caveman not quite like the others.
