Rogue One is a thrilling and intense, if occasionally tedious, Star Wars spinoff
In my opinion, the only good thing about the fall semester starting is that the fall TV season also starts. Now we could watch our favorite TV shows that we’ve been waiting six months for and also new TV shows that promise to be either the next great comedy sitcom or the gritty cop drama. Since there’s too much to keep up with, I’ve carefully compiled a list of the fall TV shows that you should definitely keep an eye out for.
‘Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ (Tues. @8 p.m., ABC)*
This exciting new show from ABC is based off of Marvel’s highly successful film franchise. The series stars Clark Gregg who reprises his role as Agent Phil Coulson from the movies and is arguably the most anticipated new series in television this year.
‘Saturday Night Live’ (Sat. @11:30 p.m., NBC)
Despite the announcements of most of its principal cast leaving (including Bill Hader and Fred Armisen) ‘SNL’ still has a very solid ensemble to make your Saturday nights enjoyable.
‘Revolution’ (Wed. @8 p.m., NBC)
The dystopian drama from J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions returns for a second season. The plot centers around a group of unlikely heroes who searches for answers 15 years after all of Earth’s power went out.
‘Parks and Rec’ (Thurs. @8 p.m., NBC)
Even with the news of Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones leaving the show this season, there’s no doubting the excitement of revisiting Pawnee’s favorite Deputy Parks Director and the shenanigans that she gets herself and her friends into.
‘The Walking Dead’ (Sun. @9 p.m., AMC)
AMC’s popular zombie soap opera returns for its fourth season and will likely continue the conflict between Rick and his team with the tyrannical Governor and his henchmen.
‘Modern Family’ (Wed. @9 p.m., ABC)
ABC’s highly successful Emmy-winning comedy returns for a fifth season and continues to follow the misadventures of members of an extended family in Los Angeles.
‘Sleepy Hollow’ (Mon. @9 p.m., FOX)*
This new Fox drama is a modern retelling of the classic story, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow.” It follows Ichabod Crane, who awakens in 2014 after “dying” in a battle in 1790. Now he must team up with the new local sheriff and defeat the newly awaken Headless Horseman.
‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ (Tues. @8:30 p.m., FOX)*
This new comedy stars Andy Samberg as a laid back detective who now must learn to “respect the badge” after gaining a strict and uptight new boss.
‘Masters of Sex’ (Sun. @10 p.m., SHO)*
Showtime’s provocative new series follows doctors and husband and wife team, William H. Masters and Virginia E. Johnson, who were pioneers in the research of human sexuality.
‘American Horror Story: Coven’ (Wed. @10 p.m., FX)
‘AHS’ returns for its third season and reunites past cast members including Emmy-winner Jessica Lange, Frances Conroy, Sarah Paulson, Evan Peters, Lily Rabe, and Taissa Farmiga and follows – you guessed it – witches, set 300 years after the Salem witch trials.
