WARNING: THIS POST CONTAINS LOADS OF SPOILERS. READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!
Sleepy Hollow weaves together elements of fantasy and suspense in this modern day mystery-adventure police drama. The show starts when Ichabod Crane (Tom Milson) is mysteriously teleported into the present day alongside The Headless Horseman. Part of the show’s mystery involves discovering how Crane and the Headless Horseman traveled through time. The show will play with social issues between Crane and the main female protagonist, Sheriff Abbie Mills, who is both black and a woman, something that Crane is not accustomed to seeing. Sleepy Hollow is scheduled to premiere on FOX Monday, September 16 at 9/8 CST.
The Emmy-nominated show returns this fall to FOX on Tuesday, September 17 at 9/8 CST. In season 3 we pick up right where we left off, with Cece and Schmidt’s relationships being just as complicated as ever. I’ll spare the spoilers but I will advise that you catch up on previous seasons of New Girl on Netflix. Twentieth Century Fox has signed an exclusive multi-year deal with Netflix to stream both season 1 and 2. Season 1 is available to watch on Netflix now and season 2 will become available on September 17, to coincide with the premiere of season 3.
How I Met Your Mother
During season 8 of How I Met Your Mother, Ted’s children’s mother is finally revealed. Although we only got a glimpse of her in the season 8 finale, this season the show promises to parade her around like a show pony. The final season of How I Met Your Mother will be all about wrapping up the show’s loose ends and getting more acquainted with the ‘Mother’. We will be getting some finality to the Robin and Barney story-line with a huge wedding scene. How I Met Your Mother returns to CBS on Monday, September 23, 2013 at 8/7 CST.
2 Broke Girls
Max and Caroline return this fall in an all new season of 2 Broke Girls following the premiere of How I Met Your Mother. If you’re a fan of the show, you may remember that in season 2 the girls finally opened up their not-so-successful Max’s Homemade Cupcakes shop after a $20,000 loan from their friend and neighbor Sophie, and after having a disastrous run, eventually decided it was time to close up shop, literally. Throughout the season, we see Max and Caroline disagreeing about everything relating to their new business. The season ended with Caroline and Max finding somewhere new to start-up their cupcake business. The season 3 premiere will air on CBS on Monday, September 24, 2013 at 9/8 CST.
Agents of SHIELD
Phil Coulson is alive and well and training new S.H.I.E.L.D agents to join his squad in the much-anticipated upcoming sci-fi drama, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Joss Whedon has been busy since the explosion of fanaticism that occurred after The Avengers. Put simply, people want more! And Joss Whedon is ready to give it to them. The show stars Clark Gregg and Ming-Na Wen. Special guest cameos by How I Met Your Mother’s Cobie Smulders and The Avengers’ Samuel L. Jackson are likely to take place in the first season. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D premieres on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 on ABC at 8/7 CST.
American Horror Story: Coven
American Horror Story is back and this time it will feature… witches! Dun Dun Dun. Everyone loves a good Salem Witch Trial story and that is exactly what you’ll get with American Horror Story: Coven. Many of our favorite cast members will be back including Jessica Lange, Francis Conroy, Evan Peters, and Taissa Farmiga. The setting will be 1830s New Orleans and will play with witchcraft and voodoo elements amongst other things. American Horror Story: Coven premieres Wednesday, October 9, 2013 on FX at 10/9 CST.
The Walking Dead
Season 3 of The Walking Dead left us with much heartache and tears after the deaths of Andrea and Merle, two characters that fans of the show loved to hate. The season finale also left us with one other thing; hope. After Rick realizes that his son Carl has become a hardened, quick thinking killing machine, Rick decides that the best thing to do is change the way he has run the camp and save the survivors of Woodbury to teach his son a lesson about morality. No explanation is given as to what has become of the Governor and we can only imagine that season 4 will catapult him right back to villain status. The Walking Dead premieres Sunday, October 13 at 9/8 CST.
Last season, Grimm ended with yet another cliffhanger, something that NBC had done to us the year prior when they ended season 1. The season 2 finale culminated to an end when Nick, after having fallen for the Baron’s trap, became a “zombie” himself much like the people who he was trying to save. The side story left us with Adalind converting to an old woman then returning back to her former self. Is she a Hexenbiest again? We will see. Grimm returns to NBC on Friday, October 25, 2013. “Thank Grimm it’s Friday”.
Dracula stars Jonathan Rhys Meyers and Jessica De Gouw and takes place in modern-day London. When Dracula arrives in London, he disguises himself and swears “to take revenge on the people who ruined his life centuries earlier“. Eventually, Dracula meets a woman who may somehow be the reincarnation of his dead wife. Drama ensues. Dracula will premiere on NBC on Friday, October 25, following an all new Grimm.
Well that’s a wrap. Did we miss a show you’re excited about? Let us know in the comments.
