With labor day just around the corner, it’s time to say goodbye to summer. And while it’s hard to let go of vacation and pool days, there’s at least one thing to look forward to… all-new episodes of your favorite shows are coming back! And our sister network, FOX, has quite an exciting fall lineup.
Fan-favorites New Girl, The Mindy Project, Glee, Bones, X-Factor, Raising Hope, and Animation Domination are back and offering more than ever, but there are a few new shows making their broadcast debut, and we’re pretty excited about them.
New-series Sleepy Hollow brings a modern-day twist to the classic tale when Ichabod Crane is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers. As this re-invented Ichabod finds himself in present-day Sleepy Hollow, he discovers a town and a world he no longer recognizes, except for the Headless Horseman and his determination to annihilate the immortal being. Feeling more like a blockbuster than a television series, this new supernatural drama is a crime-thriller we don’t want to miss.
Later in the fall, those dearly missing their Fringe fix will be happy to hear that producer J.J. Abrams is returning to Fox with a new sci-fi action drama, Almost-Human. But this time, the backdrop is the year 2048 when police officers are partnered with highly-evolved human-like androids.
Tuesday nights break up the drama with a little humor, featuring two brand-new series with sure talent. From the creators of Ted and Family Guy comes a new comedy, Dads, that follows two childhood best friends, now successful guys in their mid-30s, whose relatively stable lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck patriarchs move in.
Another new comedy coming to the table, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, starring Andy Sandberg and Andre Braugher shows what happens when a good-enough cop that’s never had to work that hard or follow the rules too closely gets a new commanding officer with a lot to prove.
Then… move over grownups, the kids are taking over the kitchen! Junior MasterChef is a new culinary competition series for talented kids between the ages of eight and 13 who love to cook, and will give budding cooks the exciting opportunity to showcase their talent, culinary smarts and passion for food through a series of delicious challenges and cook-offs.
