New & Returning Series Premiere Dates

Summer is coming to a close soon and the new Fall TV season is set to kick off shortly with many series both old and new set to be launched in the United States and the United Kingdom over the next three months.

There’s so many in fact that it’s 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 three – returning show season premiere dates in the U.S., new show pilot airdates in the U.S., and some key British series set to return in the United Kingdom.

The returning shows I’ll personally be tuning in for before the year’s out – “American Horror Story,” “Arrow,” “Breaking Bad,” “Bones,” “Castle,” “Doctor Who,” “Elementary,” “Good Wife,” “Hell on Wheels,” “Homeland,” “Poirot,” “Q.I.,” “Ripper Street,” “Sherlock,” “Sons of Anarchy,” “Supernatural,” “The Walking Dead” and “Whitechapel”.

Of the new shows premiering I intend to give “Almost Human,” “The Blacklist,” “The Crazy Ones,” “Dracula,” “Hostages,” “Low Winter Sun,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Masters of Sex,” “Sleepy Hollow,” and “The White Queen” and maybe one or two others a shot if the reaction is good.

Some of the most interesting stuff like “Believe,” “Black Sails,” “Crisis,” “Crossbones,” “Fargo,” “Intelligence,” “The Last Ship,” “The Leftovers,” “Lost Angels,” “Outlander,” “Penny Dreadful,” “Trending Down,” “True Detective” and “The Vatican” isn’t out until sometime next year.

I’ll also tune in for “24,” “The Americans,” “Archer,” “Broadchurch,” “Community,” “Da Vinci’s Demons,” “The Following,” “Game of Thrones,” “Hannibal,” “House of Cards,” “Justified,” “Mad Dogs,” “Orphan Black,” “Teen Wolf,” “True Blood” and “Wallander” when they return in 2014.

The shows I still haven’t gotten around to as yet but I plan to get to soon include “Boardwalk Empire,” “Copper,” “Downton Abbey,” “Girls,” “The Killing” (U.S. version), “Louie,” “Mad Men,” “Strike Back” & “The Vampire Diaries”.
