With summer programming providing fewer shows than ever to watch on the main networks, it’s time to look ahead to the fall.
With a string of new additions that will either be hits or colossal failures and some returning shows that ended their most recent seasons with a bang, the 2018-19 TV season is shaping up to be one filled with a lot of shows to watch.
Have a look at the list below of new and returning shows you cannot miss!
A Million Little Things – ABC
A Million Little Things looks set to be ABC’s answer to This Is Us. It focuses on a group of friends stuck in a rut, and how the death of someone close to them will change their whole outlook on life. With a cast that includes David Giuntoli, Ron Livingston, Romany Malco, Allison Miller, and Christina Moses, it’s one to watch.
Catch it Wednesdays this fall.
Last Man Standing – Fox
In a surprising turn of events, Fox revived Last Man Standing one year after ABC canceled it. It will air Friday nights.
Legacies – The CW
Legacies is the highly anticipated sequel to both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. It takes place in Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and the Gifted. Matt Davis and Danielle Rose Russell will star. It will air Thursdays at 9/8c.
All American – The CW
All American is new football drama about a teenager who is given a free pass to Beverly Hills High after being scouted for the football team. It sounds like The OC meets Friday Night Lights, and we are so in for it. It will air Wednesdays at 9/8c.
New Amsterdam – NBC
New Amsterdam is yet another medical drama, but this one is fronted by Ryan Eggold and focuses on the oldest public hospital in the country. It will air Tuesdays in the fall.
Murphy Brown – CBS
Murphy Brown is returning to the air in the form of a revival. That means much of the original cast will be back. It will join the CBS Thursday comedy block in 2018.
Magnum P.I. – CBS
This is a reboot of the popular Tom Selleck fronted drama from the 1980s. Jay Hernandez will take over the lead role in this reboot, and it will join a revamped Monday line-up on CBS in the fall.
The Rookie – ABC
It has Nathan Fillion in it. Do we really need to say more?
Fillion plays a character who becomes the oldest rookie in the Los Angeles Police Department. It will join ABC’s Tuesday schedule later this year.
Manifest – NBC
Manifest follows a plane that goes missing, and returns years later. For the people on the plane, no time has passed and they need to get to grips with a world that has moved on without them. With Josh Dallas and Melissa Roxburgh in the cast, we are so in. It will air Mondays in the fall.
Charmed – The CW
The Charmed ones are back with a whole new look and intriguing new backstories.
It will either be the reboot we’ve all been waiting for or the one we wish never happened. Time will tell.
It will air Sundays in the fall.
Grey’s Anatomy – ABC
Grey’s is entering Season 15, but it will be without some beloved characters. Will it be the season it all falls apart, or will it continue to be as resilient as ever? It airs Thursdays.
How to Get Away with Murder – ABC
This show may be getting a little long in the tooth, but we need to know the answer to one of the most burning questions: WHO IS THAT KID? Find out when the show returns in the fall.
Dynasty – The CW
There’s no denying that this show was trashy as hell, but the season finale left a lot of characters in a burning building. Who will perish?
Empire – Fox
Empire circled the drain for a good two years, but it staged a creative comeback in Season 4. The finale alone killed off two characters and left the fate of four more up in the air. We need answers.
Young Sheldon – CBS
This spinoff of The Big Bang Theory serves as a hilarious look into the early years of Sheldon Cooper. With witty one-liners and great comedy timing, it’s now one of the best comedy series on all of TV.
Midnight, Texas – NBC
This series had to sit out of the 2017-2018 season entirely, but it will be back with a thrilling new mystery on Friday nights in the fall.
The Conners – ABC
What do you get when you fire leading lady, Roseanne Barr? The Conners! This spinoff of Roseanne will premiere in the fall and will focus on the family moving on after a catastrophic event. Will Roseanne be killed off? Find out Tuesdays in the fall.
American Horror Story – FX
American Horror Story is crossing over the worlds from both Murder House and Coven. How will they pull it off? We’ll find out in September.
Supernatural – The CW
Supernatural has been on the air for over a decade, but the storylines are still full of big shocks. It continues on The CW from October.
9-1-1 – Fox
9-1-1 may be losing some characters in Season 2, but it’s gaining Jennifer Love Hewitt. That’s a win, we guess. It returns in the fall.
This Is Us – NBC
This Is Us may have resolved the central storyline in Season 2, but there’s more story to tell in Season 3. It continues Tuesday nights this fall.
Happy Together – CBS
Damon Wayans Jr. and Amber Stevens West play a couple whose lives are changed forever when a young pop star moves in with them. It will join the network’s Monday line-up in September.
