Fall TV schedule: Your guide to every premiere date(Read article summary)
The fall TV schedule has begun – when is your favorite show premiering?
It’s that time of the year again to return to your favorite fall television shows. If you thought that this season was going to be a bit easier on your remote, you better think again. Not only will you have 18 new series fighting for your attention, you’ll also have 69 returning shows with new seasons. In case you’re wondering, that’s 87 TV premieres waiting for you in the coming months. Hopefully you have a DVR.
Like in past years, the fall television season has broken out of the typical September-only premiere scheduling. Instead of simply one month of hectic television planning (and watching), everything is now essentially spread across two months, September and October. Not to be left out, November also includes two premieres – though only for ABC.
Kicking off the month of September, things start off a bit slow with Matthew Perry’s new NBC series Go On, Sons of Anarchy season 5 and Boardwalk Empire season 3, to name a few. We move on to September’s proverbial “hell week” on the 24th, where each day contains at least 5 premieres – topping things out on Wednesday with 9 total. Some premieres included in this week are Castle season 5, New Girl season 2, as well as the premieres of CBS’ Vegas and Elementary. Helping to round out the month, Dexter season 7 and Once Upon a Time season 2 are awaiting those who make it through stage 1 of the fall TV season.
