Three TV Shows I Can’t Wait For This Fall

Normally I don’t get too excited about Fall TV Shows. I’ve always been a “watch it when the series it over” kind of person except for a few select shows. Being patient is something I’m not that great at and if spoilers are available I’ll usually cave and look them up. There three tv shows I can’t wait for this Fall and they even seem like they will be worth being patient for. Fall TV is looking very promising!

This Is Us

In terms of new shows I’m excited for This Is Us is one that I have been excited about since I saw the first preview. Based on a few articles I’ve read it will replace the void left by Parenthood and I can’t wait. There are three stories that are interconnected by three of the main characters celebrating their 36th birthday. According to a few of the reviews there is a major plot twist at the end of the first episode connecting them even more. For once I’m avoiding looking up any spoilers. 

NBC’s Description: Sometimes life will surprise you. Starring Mandy Moore (“A Walk to Remember”), Milo Ventimiglia (“Heroes,” “Gilmore Girls”) and Sterling K. Brown (“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story”), this refreshingly honest and provocative series follows a unique ensemble. As their paths cross and their life stories intertwine in curious ways, we find that several of them share the same birthday and so much more than anyone would expect. From the writer and directors of “Crazy, Stupid, Love” comes a smart, modern dramedy that will challenge your everyday presumptions about the people you think you know. 

Start Date: Tuesday September 21

Network: NBC

Designated Survivor

Anything that is described as “a mix of West Wing” immediately winds up on my to watch list. Designated Survivor takes on the unexpected event of the US Capitol building blowing up during the state of the union. I’m always interested in the political shows and will usually give them a shot even if I don’t finish them. This one is also on my “must watch” list for this Fall. I hope it turns out to be a good one!

ABC’s Description Kiefer Sutherland stars as Tom Kirkman, a lower-level cabinet member who is suddenly appointed President of the United States after a catastrophic attack on the US Capitol during the State of the Union. Kirkman will struggle to keep the country and his family from falling apart, while navigating the highly-volatile political arena and leading the search to find who is responsible for the attack.

Start Date: Wednesday September 22

Network: ABC

Madam Secretary

It isn’t a new TV show but Madam Secretary is back for the third season. I have had a countdown in my calendar since the beginning of August. Hands down it has been one of my favorite tv shows the last few years. This season should be no exception.  Season 2 ended on a slight cliff hanger about her possibly running as Vice President. I can’t wait to see what happens and only have a week and a half to wait now! 

Start Date: Sunday October 2

Network: CBS

Other TV Shows I Can’t Wait For

There are a few TV Shows I can’t wait for coming later on this Fall and early Winter. Thanks to Netflix they will all be available at once so I won’t have to worry about being patient. 

Gilmore Girls – Seasons

There are still a few months to go before we get to see what happens next in the life of Rory and Lorelai. While there haven’t been spoilers (and I’m okay with that) there have been a lot of teasers. All three of Rory’s boyfriends are back, but which one is she with? Luke and Lorelai seem to finally be together. I can’t wait to journey back into Stars Hallow!

Fuller House Season 2

Yup, I’ll admit it. I already can’t wait for the next season of Fuller House even though it is probably a good six months away. The first season was great and exactly what I expected to be. I assume season two will be just as cheesy in the way only Full(er) House can be. 

What shows are you excited about this Fall?
