Summer is on its way out. (Tear.)
It’s always hard to say goodbye to the days of sunshine and swimming, but fall is not without its merits.
Crisp autumn air, the crunch of leaves, the smell of mulled spices…and a whole new line-up of television shows to curl up and enjoy as temperatures start to drop.
Here are a few brand new shows we absolutely can’t wait to watch this fall season:
Premieres: August 27 on Netflix
Netflix has been tirelessly creating quality show after quality show and it seems they really know what they’re doing. Narcos aims to continue that legacy. Based on the true story of U.S. and Colombian efforts to bring down the infamous and dangerous Medellin cartel during the cocaine-fueled drug wars of the 1980’s, this new series brings something gritty and new to the table while satisfying your Breaking Bad cravings.
Premieres: To be announced on ABC
You have to appreciate the irony: The Catch follows a woman who has dedicated her career to catching con-artists and exposing fraud, but falls victim herself to a scam that costs her everything. Considering the ABC drama is the next big project for legendary show producer Shonda Rhimes (Grey’s Anatomy, Scandal), I think we can expect great things.
The Mindy Project
Premieres: September 15 on HULU
Okay, Okay. The Mindy Project isn’t a new show, but the series is new to HULU, and we think the jokes courtesy of Mindy Lahiri and Danny Castellano will make the monthly subscription oh-so-worth it. HULU hasn’t released any season four trailers, so here are a few clips from season three to get you excited for September.
Premieres: September 29 on FOX
It might be hard to see John Stamos as anyone but Uncle Jessie from Full House, but Grandfathered might be worth the watch regardless. Though we’ve seen the “wealthy-playboy-discovers-his-teenage-child” cliché more than a few times on screen, this single camera comedy offers a new twist: He’s not just a father; he’s a grandpa.
Samantha Bee on TBS Late Night
A woman hosting late night TV? Our dreams are finally (FINALLY!) coming true! Samantha Bee has proven her worth and comedic ability on The Daily Show again and again, so we’re beyond excited to see her step up her game with a show of her very own.
Premieres: October 27 on ABC
Ed Westwick is a world away from Gossip Girl in this new thriller. Set in 1980’s Los Angeles, the first season features a serial killer who seems far less methodical than Dexter…and significantly more sociopathic. It doesn’t look like a series for the faint of heart, but Wicked City promises an unexpected and edgy plot that moves beyond typical TV clichés.
We want to hear from you! What new shows will you be starting up this fall?
