Fall 2016 TV Series Premiere Dates

The new Fall TV season is set to kick off shortly with series both old and new set to be launched in the United States over the next few weeks. With so many show on it can prove a bit confusing as to when specifically each of these shows will premiere. Today comes a handy schedule to keep you on track. The list has been divided into returning show season premiere dates, and new show pilot airdates.

The returning shows I’ll personally be tuning in for before the year’s out: “American Horror Story,” “Arrow,” “Ash vs. Evil Dead,” “The Blacklist,” “Black Mirror,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Elementary,” “The Fall,” “The Flash,” “Gotham,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Q.I.,” “Rick and Morty,” “Scorpion,” “Supergirl,” “Supernatural,” “Vikings” and “The Walking Dead”.

I’ll also tune in for “12 Monkeys” “24,” “The 100,” “American Crime Story,” “The Americans,” “Archer,” “Bates Motel,” “Black Sails,” “Bosch,” “Broadchurch,” “Doctor Who,” “The Expanse,” “Fear the Walking Dead,” “Game of Thrones,” “Homeland,” “House of Cards,” “Orphan Black,” “Outlander,” “Preacher,” “Sense8,” “Sherlock,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Stranger Things,” “Teen Wolf,” the return of “Twin Peaks” and “UnREAL” when they all return in 2017.

Of the new shows premiering I’m considering giving “American Gods,” “Atlanta,” “Berlin Station,” “Designated Survivor,” “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency,” “Emerald City,” “Falling Water,” “Frequency,” “Goliath,” “Incorporated,” “MacGyver,” “Marvel’s Iron Fist,” ” Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “Marvel’s The Defenders,” “Star Trek: Discovery,” “Taboo,” “The Crown,” “The Young Pope,” “Versailles,” “Westworld” and “Will” a go.

There’s no shortage of good shows on right now, amongst the shows I still haven’t gotten around to as yet and am ashamed to be behind on are the likes of “The Affair,” “Billions,” “Bloodline,” “Bojack Horseman,” “Downton Abbey,” “Fargo,” “Hap and Leonard,” “Happy Valley,” “Kingdom,” “The Knick,” “The Leftovers,” “Longmire,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “Marco Polo,” “Masters of Sex,” “Narcos,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Peaky Blinders,” “Poldark,” “Rectify,” “Transparent,” “Unbreakable Kelly Schmidt” and “Veep”.
