Spring 2016 TV Series Premiere Dates

The idea of a mid-season has essentially fallen by the wayside thanks to cable and streaming, with TV launches seemingly occuring every month now. Nevertheless the first third or so of the year has become one of the busiest times not just for the return of network shows after an extended Christmas/New Year break but also new season premieres and new series launches.

Today comes a handy schedule to keep you on track for many popular or intriguing shows both old and new. Amongst the new show highlights there’s “11/22/63,” “American Crime Story,” “Cassius and Clay,” “The Crown,” “Damien,” “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “The Get Down,” “Lucifer,” “Mad Dogs,” “Marvel’s Luke Cage,” “Outcast,” “The Path,” “Preacher,” “Rush Hour,” “Taboo,” “Vinyl,” & “Westworld”

New seasons of current shows I’m looking forward to include: “12 Monkeys,” “The 100,” “The Americans,” “Archer,” “Bates Motel,” “Black Sails,” “Bosch,” “Doctor Who,” “The Fall,” “Game of Thrones,” “Hell on Wheels,” “House of Cards,” “Line of Duty,” “The Man in the High Castle,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Marvel’s Daredevil,” “Mr. Robot,” “Orphan Black,” “Outlander,” “Penny Dreadful,” “Rick and Morty,” “Ripper Street,” “Samurai Jack, “Sense8,” “Sherlock,” “The Strain,” “True Detective,” “UnREAL,” “Vikings,” “Wallander” and “The X-Files”

Shows currently through their runs I’ll be tuning in for include: “Arrow,” “The Blacklist,” “Brooklyn Nine-Nine,” “Castle,” “Elementary,” “The Flash,” “Gotham,” “The Good Wife,” “Homeland,” “Major Crimes,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Scorpion,” “Sleepy Hollow,” “Supernatural” and “The Walking Dead”.
