While the summer is full of great television, I’m beginning to look forward to the ever-growing lineup of new shows coming out this fall. Here are some of the shows I’m especially excited about.
The reboot of NBC’s cult fav will bring back Heroes character Noah Bennett, as well as two of my favorites, Matt Parkman and Hiro Nakamura. The new series picks up a year after a terrorist attack destroys Odessa, Texas. Once again, a group of super humans are blamed for the destruction and are on the run from the authorities. Check out the teaser:
The Bastard Executioner
Kurt Sutter (Sons of Anarchy) returns to FX with this period drama. The story follows one of King Edward I’s knights who vows to leave the warrior life behind (i.e. midieval Jax Teller). In addition to Sutter’s stellar writing, the show will feature a host of great actors including True Blood’s Stephen Moyer, SOA’s Katey Sagal, The Americans’ Matthew Rhys, and possibly a cameo from Jax himself, Charlie Hunnam. Listen to Kurt Sutter discuss the show with Larry King:
Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story) is bringing the terror to network TV this fall with this take on a classic horror story. The tale takes place on a college campus where a series of murders are occurring. The show features an eclectic cast that includes horror alums Jamie Lee Curtis and Emma Roberts, musical acts Ariana Grande and Nick Jonas, and television favorites Lea Michele and Abigail Breslin.

The plot of this fall drama stems from the 2011 film Limitless, and follows Brian Sinclair who expands his brain’s capabilities with a new experimental drug NZT. His new superhuman thought powers are recruited by the FBI to assist in crime solving. I’m particularly excited to see Dexter’s Jennifer Carpenter back on my television in this one. Here’s the trailer:
Another movie redux, the television version of the 2005 film follow a “pre-cog” name Dash as he begins seeing flashes of crimes before they’re committed. With the help of a detective, Dash is able use his powers to piece together clues that may stop the criminals in their tracks. And the trailer:
This ABC drama brings back another of my television favorites Ed Westwick (Gossip Girl). As an anthology series, Wicked City will feature on a different historical Los Angeles police case each season. This fall, the case will focus on a string of serial killings on the Sunset Strip in 1982. Check out the trailer:
