5 Fall TV Shows That Are Going To Become Your New Obsession

Published

on

When the cooler weather hits, two things happen: your favorite TV shows return for more seasons and brand-new shows premiere.

All of those new shows want to be loved by you!

It’s understandable that you don’t have time to watch everything that’s on television, so we looked through all the upcoming premieres and picked out 5 shows that we you have to add to your DVR cue.

 

1. God Friended Me – CBS

Premiere Date: September 30th, 2018 (first episode dropped already on CBS All Access)

CBS’s new series can make anyone believe in a greater power by asking the question: what if God was your friend on Facebook? God Friended Me focuses on a man who comes from a religious family — his father is a reverend — but he himself runs an atheist podcast. When he gets a friend request from the big man above (or someone pretending to be him), he also begins to have encounters that seem almost destined. And don’t worry, if you aren’t religious, the show itself said it isn’t too preachy but hopes to examine faith through belief, science and social media.

 

2. Manifest – NBC 

If Lost and The Crossing had a baby, it would be NBC’s newest series, Manifest. Ben Stone, his cancer-stricken son, and his sister Mikaela agree to take a later flight home from their Jamaican vacation with the fam. The flight goes through a period of severe turbulence and upon landing, the plane is swarmed with several squad cars. Ben senses something is very wrong and he’s right; their plane departed Jamaica in 2013… it is now 2018. All the passengers on the flight have been assumed to be dead for five years. What happened to the plane? A cosmic interference? Something more supernatural? Why did these passengers get a second chance at life? And what happened to them on the plane? You’ll have to watch to find out! Watch the first 10-minutes of the series below:

 

3. You – Lifetime

Premiere Date: September 9th

The series premiered yesterday on Lifetime (go catch up now) and it’s equal parts thrilling, sexy and intoxicating. Gossip Girl was only the beginning for Penn Badgley in terms of stalking pretty, blonde girls on the Upper East Side. On You, instead of hiding behind his computer screen as the elusive GG, Badgley’s character Joe Goldberg, a name and persona I’m sure he mad up, takes it up a notch by actually stalking the woman he’s developed an unhealthy fascination for. His obsession takes a dark turn rather early on when it’s apparent he’ll do anything for bookstore-girl Beck, including murder folks that get in his way.

 

4. The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Premiere Date: October 26, 2018

If the occult, witches and cannibalism are your thing, you need to add Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina to your “must watch” list. The 10-episode series hails from Riverdale showrunners and while it’s technically a sequel to the beloved 90s sitcom Sabrina the Teenage Witch, it’s deviated so far from the kooky family comedy we’re all familiar with, it can’t even be called a sequel anymore. The new Sabrina is a young witch whose aunts Hilda and Zelda are worshippers of Satan. Along with her boyfriend, Harvey, the half-witch, half-mortal will fight evil forces that threaten her and the mortal world.

5. Legacies – The CW

Premiere Date: October 25, 2018

If you were a die-hard fan of The Vampire Diaries or The Originals, you’ll likely want to continue on with the franchise’s third spin-off, Legacies. The series follows Hope, the tribrid and all-powerful daughter of the late Hayley Marshall and Klaus Mikealson as she attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted back in the supernatural town of Mystic Falls. TVD’s Matt Davis will reprise his role as guardian Alaric Saltzman, and his daughters Lizzie and Josie Saltzman will also round out the core cast. Their mother Caroline Forbes (Candice Accola) will also guest-star.

 

BONUS: Tell Me a Story – CBS All Access

Premiere Date: October 31, 2018

Kevin Williamson, the man behind some of your favorite horror shows like The Vampire Diaries, Stalker and The Following returns to bring you the psychological thriller, Tell Me a Story, just in time for Halloween. He puts his spin on the world’s most beloved fairytales  — The Three Little Pigs, Little Red Riding Hood, and Jack and the Beanstalk — by turning them into dark and twisted nightmares in modern-day New York. Warning: this probably isn’t for the faint of heart.

The Originals’ Claire Holt Welcomes First Child With Husband Andrew

Claire Holt Gives Birth

Welcome, James Holt Joblon!

Claire Holt and husband Andrew Joblon welcomed their first child together.

The Originals actress shared a picture of her little man on Instagram writing, “Everything they say is true. There is no love like it.”

In the photo, James is wrapped in a hospital blanket and peacefully sleeping in his momma’s arms.

Pregnancy has been a difficult journey for Holt who suffered a miscarriage and underwent a consequent dilation and curettage procedure just seven months before she became pregnant with James.

As I inch closer to my due date, I often find myself reflecting on the incredible capacity of the female body. I cannot believe that I’ve created, nourished and housed a little human! It hasn’t been an easy process – I’ve cried many tears and cursed my aching body countless times. However, I have never loved or respected myself more than I do now. This #internationalwomensday is a particularly meaningful one for me. I am truly in awe of all those who have taken the journey of motherhood before me, and I feel so excited to be joining their ranks. I’m also reminded of the incredible strength that women possess, which extends far beyond having children. Every day I see examples of kind women, passionate women, intelligent women, driven women. I am endlessly inspired by ladies I know and love as well as by those I’ve never even met. Thank you to all the women in my life – and to women everywhere – for never ceasing to amaze me.

In October, she announced her pregnancy writing:

“My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude,” she wrote alongside the pregnancy announcement.

My heart is bursting. I’m so happy to share with you that we are having a baby! It still doesn’t feel real. These past few months have been filled with excitement, anxiety, tears, joy, uncertainty but most of all gratitude. You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences. Our loss earlier this year was the darkest moment of my life. Yet, it made me infinitely more thankful for the precious baby growing inside me today. I want to take a moment to acknowledge all those struggling with miscarriage, infertility or any of the difficulties that come with bringing new life into the world. I know that these announcements can hurt. I’ve felt it all. My heart is with you and I pray that our story gives you hope. Thank you all so much for your love and support – I can’t wait to share this journey with you.

She also reflected on the miscarriage writing, “You never forget the deep pain of loss. It dims with time but it informs many of your experiences.”

We’re so happy for Claire and Andrew!

Sending congrats and love to the family!
