9 TV Shows To Watch This Fall

Autumn is my favorite time of year. Cooler temperatures before it’s unbearably cold, school without as much stress as finals, and, of course, fall television. There are a whole bunch of returning shows that I’m looking forward to this fall in a variety of categories, and there are several new shows that I’m interested in checking out, too. (PS – I’m having an ad sale through tonight! Head over to my Twitter to get the code for 50% off all ads.)

9 TV Shows To Watch

Shows I Can’t Wait To Return

1. Madame Secretary: Smart, clever, and wicked entertaining, this show reminds me a lot of The West Wing, which is one of my all-time favorite TV shows. Tea Leoni is brilliant as Secretary McCord. (Returns October 4)

2. The Royals: I’ve always loved royalty – and have probably read way too many books about it – and this show is completely up my alley. It’s dramatic to the extreme, and I love it. (Returns in November)

3. Empire: I didn’t get into Empire until it ended, and was blown away by how good it is. It’s not your usual drama, although it definitely has the family and romantic drama down pat. What really makes it stand out to me – other than the fascinating characters and excellent performances – is the insight it gives to the music industry. (Returns September 23)

4. Scandal: Do I really need to say more? If you’re wondering, yes, it is worth the hype. Go watch it on Netflix and thank me later. Or hate me for making you addicted. Whichever. (Returns September 24)

5. How To Get Away with Murder: Overarching storyline about a murder being committed, as well as the weekly storyline of several first-year law students interning for a high-profile defense attorney. Dean Thomas from the Harry Potter movies is the lead student (yes, I know that’s not his actual name) and Viola Davis is the high-profile attorney. My jaw hit the floor with how the first season ended and I can’t wait to see what happens next! (Returns September 24)

6. Sleepy Hallow: I have to admit that I didn’t watch the second season at all, but my former roommate and I were obsessed with the first season. Mystery, fantasy, and history combine for an incredibly entertaining show, and I hope to get back into it this year! (Returns October 1)


New Shows I’m Looking Forward To

1. Code Black: This looks like an interesting medical drama, and hopefully it won’t break my heart like Grey’s Anatomy did. (Premiers September 30)

2. Quantico: There’s a crime element, there’s a mystery element, and it looks like there might be some romantic drama, too. Basically, it seems right up my alley. Hopefully it turns out as good as it looks! (Premiers September 27)

3. Scream Queens: I’m not a scary movie person at all, so I’ve never been able to watch American Horror Story, although I like reading information about the plot because it’s never boring. Since Scream Queens is supposed to be like American Horror Story with less horror and more comedy – it’s also by the creator of AHS – I hope that I’ll be able to watch it without being terrified. (Premiers September 22)
