The 10 episodes of Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein's brilliant fifth season will be available on Netflix September 12. From the origin of the feminist bookstore to taxidermy arsonists, you won't want to miss a minute. But you may want to put a bird on it.

TV Worth Watching
"Late Show with Stephen Colbert" (Tuesday on CBS at 11:35 p.m.)
Welcome to late night, Stephen Colbert! September 8 marks his start at David Letterman's old desk, and apparently the first show will be supersized, running until around 12:45 a.m. Colbert's first guests will be George Clooney and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush, with musical performances from Jon Batiste and Stay Human.
"Under the Dome" (Thursday on CBS at 10 p.m.)
This is it. Thankfully. The show that started out kinda close to Stephen King's book and then just went way, way out there is ending its run after three seasons on September 10. Hopefully it ends strong, leaving us with many answers, few questions, and maybe even some wistful nostalgia for the good days.
"Z Nation" (Friday on Syfy at 10 p.m.)
The second season of Syfy's own zombie apocalypse show starts on September 11. Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger for Murphy (Keith Allan), a survivor immune to zombie bites. According to Syfy's synopsis: "In the Season 2 premiere, moments have passed since Murphy triggered the launch of tactical nuclear weapons and it's every man/woman for themselves as the group split up and try to outrun the impending blast. Meanwhile, Citizen Z finds himself battling thawed zombies and unable to communicate with the team, which leads him to make a desperate move that prompts the arrival of a mysterious and deadly bounty hunter." Fun!
