It’s already time! Fall is right around the corner, and with it brings a bunch of new TV shows. As always, I have a long list of new shows I’m going to give a try (see the bottom of the post for the rest of it), but I’ve narrowed down the ten I am looking forward to the most!
Premieres: Thursday, September 8 on FX
A divorced actress is raising her three daughters by herself. This has Pamela Adlon from Californication playing the main role. I feel like most single mom shows and movies are relatable, so I’m pretty excited for this one.
The Case of JonBenet Ramsey
Premieres: Sunday, September 18 on CBS
This follows the recent trend of True Crime series, and right after The People v. O.J. Simpson did so well on FX. Both of these cases played out when I was young, but they were so huge I know plenty of details. It’s really interesting to see it played out and learn of details I was too young to know, or simply don’t remember.
The Good Place
Premieres: Monday, September 19 on NBC
If it has Kristen Bell in it, I am absolutely interested. Our main character finds herself in the afterlife with the guidance of a mentor played by Ted Danson. I feel like it’s kind of like Drop Dead Diva, but not.
This Is Us
Premieres: Tuesday, September 20 on NBC
Is this NBC’s Parenthood replacement? Because it looks like it has the potential to make me cry.
Premieres: Wednesday, September 21 on ABC
Jack Bauer Keifer Sutherland is sworn is as President after an explosion kills the President and all members of the Cabinet.
Premieres: Monday, October 3 on NBC
A guy steals a time machine to change the course of American history and destroy the country. It looks pretty good.
Premieres: Monday, October 3 on ABC
A legal drama. Not usually my cup of tea, but this stars Hayley Atwell (Agent Carter), so I’m interested.
Premieres: Wednesday, October 5 on The CW
Remember the Dennis Quaid movie? Probably not, but this show is based on that.
Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life
Premieres: Friday, November 25 on Netflix
This one’s a no-brainer, and it should be on your list, too. You have 93 days to watch seven seasons before this premieres!
Premieres: Sometime in the Fall — maybe — on USA
Shooter’s premiere date has been postponed twice due to recent tragedies. At this point I’m not sure it will ever air, but if it does — it has Ryan Phillippe and is based on Point of Impact.
Other Shows on My List:
Kevin Can Wait
Marvel’s Luke Cage
Haters Back Off
