Fall is on its way, and everyone knows what that means: new shows. Of course, everyone looks forward to their favorites coming back for another season, but there are a few new shows that may be worth watching. If you’re one of those people who gets too wrapped up in one or two shows, it may be worthwhile to try something new. There will be no shortage of upcoming shows to test your liking this fall.
Some people enjoy watching drama television when they get home from a long day, and there are plenty of those coming to your living room soon. American Horror Story premieres on FX this fall, sure to bring a new horror to the screen that is not very common. The show’s producers, Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, have kept the plot under-wraps but have cited The Shining and Rosemary’s Baby as influences. The show premieres October 5 at 10pm. A Jurassic Park-like drama called Terra Nova comes to Fox on September 26 at 8pm. The show starts things off with a two hour pilot, and critics think it will be visually similar to the popular movie series. Along with these two shows, a Charlie’s Angels re-make is set to premiere on ABC, along with Pan Am, a Mad Men type show set in the 1960’s and centering around air travel.
Coming to the comedy world is Up All Night on NBC, starring Will Arnett and Christina Applegate. This star-studded cast is sure to stir up some laughs if it can attract a large enough audience. Coming to Fox, New Girl stars Zooey Deschanel in her first major television stint. The show is sure to attract at least some watchers with the presence of Deschanel, but critics claim that the show portrays her in a different way from her other roles.
This fall brings back everyone’s favorite shows, but you shouldn’t be too quick to judge new shows. It can be hard to change one’s schedule, but something new can be refreshing. Maybe some shows will surprise you, and you will be waiting anxiously for them to restart at this time next year.
