OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network is planning a jam-packed fall premiere schedule, with new episodes of “Oprah’s Master Class,” “Iyanla: Fix My Life,” “Super Soul Sunday” and a seven-night landmark television event called “Belief.”
Below are the shows set to premiere, along with the dates and times:
IYANLA: FIX MY LIFE
“Iyanla: Fix My Life” premieres on Saturday, Sept. 19 at 9 p.m. with a three-part special. From pastors leading secret gay lives to a fallen Olympic star to a former model who risked her own health with dangerous butt injections for beauty, spiritual life coach Iyanla Vanzant tackles thought-provoking issues over eight emotional episodes.
SUPER SOUL SUNDAY
On Sunday, Oct. 4, new episodes of the two-time, Emmy award-winning “Super Soul Sunday” premieres in its new time slot at 7 p.m. eastern/pacific. The series features all-new conversations between Oprah Winfrey and top thinkers, authors, visionaries and spiritual leaders exploring themes and issues including happiness, personal fulfillment, spirituality, conscious living and what it means to be alive in today’s world.
Episodes this season include President Jimmy Carter; television creator Shonda Rhimes; professor and TED speaker Dr. Brené Brown; women’s rights activist and humanitarian Zainab Salbi; pastor and education activist Wintley Phipps; human rights activist Bryan Stevenson; “Chicken Soup for the Soul” co-creator Jack Canfield; happiness expert Gretchen Rubin (“The Happiness Project”); groundbreaking psychologist Daniel Goleman (“Emotional Intelligence”); and more.
Narrated by Oprah Winfrey, the television event series, “Belief,” airs Sunday, Oct. 18-24 at 8 p.m. eastern/pacific, and will explore humankind’s ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves. This groundbreaking original series invites viewers to witness some of the world’s most fascinating spiritual journeys through the eyes of the believers. Traveling to the far reaches of the world, and to places cameras have rarely been, “Belief” searches the origins of diverse faiths and the heart of what really matters.
Each episode presents stories of people on spiritual journeys, taking them to sacred spaces, including: the largest peaceful gathering in the history of the world as a group of believers seek redemption along the banks of a holy river; a free climber on the side of a mountain who believes there is no greater power than just being present as he climbs without rope; inside the ceremonies of the past as a 21st-century woman seeks to find a miracle cure using ancient ceremonial treatments; the quiet of the night as a culture seeks to hang on to its 50,000-year-old history by searching the stars for insight to share with future generations; and, a courtroom and prison where a grieving mother must grapple with forgiveness as she comes face-to-face with her son’s killer — all leading viewers to ask: “What do you believe?”
OPRAH’S MASTER CLASS
Returning for its fifth season, Sunday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. eastern/pacific is the Emmy-nominated and NAACP and Gracie award-winning series “Oprah’s Master Class,” with masters handpicked by Oprah Winfrey, including Ellen DeGeneres, Robert Duvall, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Smokey Robinson, Jeff Bridges, James Taylor and Patti LaBelle. Chosen for their unique impact on the world, these true modern masters share the greatest lessons they’ve learned along the way, including their successes, failures, triumphs, disappointments and heartbreaks.
