Fall 2017 TV Shows

Can't believe it's already September! This blog has been dormant for a while, but it's time for the annual list of tv shows I plan on watching this fall.

Returning Shows:

Some shows that I really liked, including Scream Queens and Sleepy Hollow, got cancelled :( and some will have drastic changes (I'm talking about you Once Upon a Time), but the following, in chronological order, got renewed:

Scorpion returns for its fourth season on Monday, September 25th at 10pm on CBS.
I really enjoyed the previous seasons, so happy Walter and Paige finally got together! 
However, the 10pm time slot is too late for me. I will watch this on On-Demand though.

NCIS returns for its 15th season (!!!) on Tuesday, September 26th at 8pm on CBS. 
NCIS is an on and off tv shows for me. Sometimes I watch every episode, sometimes I just skip a few. It's just one of those shows that never gets old.

American Housewife returns for its second season on Wednesday, September 27th at 9.30pm on ABC.
I was surprised at how much I liked this show, Katy Mixon is amazingly funny! My only complaint is that its on so late. My little man actually found this really funny too! 

Timeless returns for its second season on Monday, October 3rd at 10pm on NBC.
For a while I thought this was cancelled, but NBC renewed it at last minute. Both husband and I watched Timeless and really enjoyed the history storyline behind every episode.

Riverdale returns for its second season on Wednesday, October 11th at 8pm on CW.
This was the biggest surprise of the shows I watched last season. It's a teen drama, but don't let that scare you off, the cinematography is captivating! I am a very visual person, so I truly enjoyed the dark landscape the series painted. Well worth the watch, even if you don't care for teen drama in general!

Blindspot returns for its third season Friday, October 27th at 8 pm on NBC. 
I watched this show a lot last season, it's super fast paced with a lot of action scenes, which I like. The new time slot is a bit inconvenient for me, since it is Friday night. I'll probably watch this on On-Demand.

Mom returns for its fifth season on Thursday November 2nd at 9pm on CBS
If you haven't checked this one out, you should, Mom is hilarious!

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D returns for its fifth season midseason TBD on ABC. Agents is probably my most favorite show currently on air. I loved last season's dark themes and the cliffhanger so I'm definitely watching every episode this season as well.

iZombie returns for its fourth season midseason, TBA on CW. 
I absolutely love following the life of the butt kicking zombie coroner's assistant Liv. She is awesome and funny! There was lots going on during the third season, so I'm very curious what will happen next.

Elementary returns for its sixth season midseason TBD on CBS.
There was a lot of chatter that Elementary will be cancelled, but CBS did renewed for it for a shorter 13-episode season. I love Sherlock Holmes and have truly enjoyed this modern adaptation. And as mentioned before, I love Lucy Liu, so I am looking forward to season premier in 2018!

I also might watch Once Upon a Time, which returns for its seventh (!) season on Friday, October 6 at 8pm on ABC. I watched it religiously last season, but most of the characters I liked are exiting, so I don't really know how the new season will go. I also watched MacGyver, returning for its second season on Friday, September 29th at 8pm on CBS, now and then and will probably continue watching it sporadically.

New Shows

There are a bunch of new shows coming, but only a few really attracted my attention and most of them are scifi type of shows, which is really interesting.

Star Trek Discovery premiers on September 24th at on CBS and then moves to CBS All Access for the reminder of the season. 
I am so looking forward to the new Star Trek, but super-bummed that it will be on CBS All Access. If the first episode is promising, I might just have to cough up the cash for yet another streaming service.

The Brave premiers Monday, September 25th at 10pm on NBC.
There are a lot of police/military related shows premiering this fall. I'm mainly giving this one a chance, because I liked Mike Vogel in Under the Dome. The name of the show is pretty cheesy, so we'll see what it's like.

Since I am going to watch Star Trek, I might as well check out The Orville, which premiered already, but will move to Thursdays on September 28th at 9pm on Fox. 
I haven't yet seen the pilot, but The Orville is basically a dramedy version of Star Trek, so I have to check it out.  
UPDATE 9/13/17: I just watched the first episode and liked it! Looking forward to the next episode.

Marvel's Inhumans premiers on Friday September 29th at 8pm on ABC. 
I noted earlier that Friday nights are not my usual tv watching times, but for this one, I'm making an exception. Except to see this Marvel fan glued to the tv on September 29th!

The Ghosted premiers on Sunday, October 1st at 8.30pm on FOX.
A paranormal sitcom? Sign me up :D 

The Crossing premiers midseason TBD on ABC.
Refugees from a future America are seeking asylum in the present day American small town. I find the topic really interesting considering the current political events, so hopefully this is a good one.

I might also check out the new version of Dynasty (premiers Wednesday October 11th at 9pm on CW) and the revival of Roseanne (premiers midseason TBD on ABC) for the sake of nostalgia and The Gifted (premiers on Monday October 2nd at 9pm on Fox) for the sake of, well, mutants :D

What do you guys think, planning on watching any of these? Any new shows that you think will be great? I'm always open to suggestions! :)

Hope everyone is having a great week!
