These 10 New TV Shows Will Get You Excited for Chilly Weather

Food & Entertainment

Retiring your flip-flops and swimsuit isn’t any fun, but at least there are some consolation prizes that come with fall. Other than the cliché ones (fuzzy sweaters, pumpkin spice everything), there is also a boatload of new TV shows to dive headfirst into. To make your couch snuggling season as fun as possible, we rounded up some of the most promising new shows for fall and early winter.

1.  The Deuce

HBO. Premieres Sunday, September 10th.

James Franco. Porn. Times Square. HBO. Does this new series by David Simon, the creator of The Wire, not have enough keywords to make you want to watch immediately? Time to hit up your parents for their HBO password, stat.

2. Good Girls

NBC. Release date: Sometime in October.

In this new drama, three suburban women get fed up with reality and decide to rob a convenience store. Featuring Christina Hendricks, Mae Whitman, and Retta (Donna from Parks and Rec), this buzzed-about new show will hopefully follow in the scandalous tracks of Big Little Lies.

3. Ghosted

Fox. Sunday, October 1st.

Ever wished for a show that crossed the imagination of The X-Files with the hilarity of Brooklyn 99? If so, Ghosted is for you. Adam Scott and Craig Robinson are roped in to investigate the paranormal, and shit gets weird real fast.

4. The Last O.G.

TBS. Tuesday, October 24th.

What would the world be without Tracy Morgan? A sad, sad place indeed? Luckily for us, he survived his traumatic car accident and is back to bringing the world laughter and promises of impregnation. His new show, The Last O.G., lets Morgan take the spotlight as Tray, a man who returns to his hometown after a long stint in prison. He finds his girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish) has some news for him. Will this fill the hole 30 Rock left in our hearts? Probably.

5. Dynasty

CW. Wednesday, October 11th.

Current times are ripe for a reboot of a soap opera about wealthy families. Echoes of Trump’s posse of children seep out immediately in Dynasty, which focuses on young people burning up money while the world watches. Made by the creators of The O.C. and Gossip Girl, it may just become your new favorite show to hate watch.

6. Me, Myself & I

CBS. Monday, September 25th.

Bobby Moynihan enjoyed a long run as one of the funniest cast members on Saturday Night Live. If you’re missing your Drunk Uncle fix, make sure to tune into Me, Myself & I, which explores an inventor’s life from three different periods.

7. I Love You, America

Hulu. Thursday, October 12th.

Comedians abound in this season’s latest collection of new shows, and Sarah Silverman is not to be left out. Her dirty mouth and whip-smart cultural criticism have been tapped by Hulu to create a show focused on getting to “the root of humanity in this country.” I Love You, America aims to create constructive dialogues between people who might not otherwise agree. This should get interesting, fast.

8. White Famous

Showtime. Sunday, October 15th.

Surprise abounded in the media when it was announced that spot-on impressionist Jay Pharoah was leaving Saturday Night Live. It was rumored that another project had enticed him away, and now it’s looking like that project is Showtime’s White Famous. In this series directed by and based on the life of Jamie Foxx, Pharoah plays a comedian who crosses over into the largely white mainstream.

9. For the People

ABC. Release date TBD.

All hail Shondaland. Shonda Rhimes is gifting ABC with one more series before she sails off into the loving arms of Netflix. For the People centers on lawyers in New York City, and you can bet they’re high-powered. Will people talk fast, while walking? Most certainly.

10. Life Sentence

CW. January 2018.

Pretty Little Liars is officially over, leaving many TV lovers feeling like we lost six incredibly cyberbullied best friends. Luckily, we can at least get our weekly dose of Lucy Hale in a couple months, thanks to her new CW show, Life Sentence. It focuses on what happens after her character finds out her supposedly terminal cancer has gone into remission. Sounds like a milquetoast central conflict, but hey, we’re super down.

I heard about Dynasty a long while back and have been SO excited for it. I’m always out of TV shows to watch. I’m currently breezing through Gypsy but I’m almost caught up!

The picture for Good Girls is actually a picture for Good Girls Revolt. Also worth watching, but a completely different show.

So many TV shows to look forward to! I’ve been wanting to get into a new series so hopefully one of these will hook me!

I just finished binge-watching PLL, so I’m excited to see Lucy Hale in something else. And I’m prepared to do tons of ugly crying with a plot like that.

None of these shows appeal to me. I’ll pass. Mind you, I don’t really watch much TV anymore so that could be why nothing caught my attention. Looks like they’ve got other people excited, though, which is the most important thing!
