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 100’ Showrunner Jason Rothenberg on Fan ‘Expectations’ and ‘Surprise Guests’ Ahead of Series Finale
It all comes to an end this Wednesday, September 30.
This may be a relief for some The 100 fans who have been less-than impressed with the show’s direction in the final season.
Showrunner Jason Rothenberg spoke to TVLine about what he hopes that final hour-long episode accomplishes especially after the penultimate episode left many questions that needed to be addressed and much to be desired.
“We’re going to try and wrap up as many things as we can,” he said. “It’s a finale — and it’s a series finale on top of that — so there will be some surprise guests. Fans can have expectations of a certain scope and scale that I feel we’ve always been able to achieve in these finales.”
The final episode also marks his directional debut.
“This was a difficult season, because we also made a pilot within the season in the middle of everything,” he explained. “And because we shot the pilot so late in the season, I went right from being on the set of the prequel to prepping the finale. … It was definitely a challenge, but I’m glad I did it. I kind of wish I’d done it earlier, so I could have four or five [episodes] under my belt now, but it would have been a regret had I not.”
He even explained that the final scene from the penultimate episode, which saw Clarke deciding to relieve Madi of her pain and suffering, was intended to kickoff the series finale.
“I actually wrote and directed that scene,” he said, adding, “But the finale was too long, so I had to put it at the end of the previous episode. That episode originally ended prior to Clarke making the decision to euthanize her child, so there was going to be a little more time — at least in the audience’s mind — before she got to that decision.”
Rothenberg seems to believe that he’s achieved what he intended for the finale and even promises some “surprise guests.”
“If the finale gets a little trippy, as seems pretty likely if Clarke and Co. are in for a test on top of the war, then all bets could be off and we could see the returns of some dearly (or not-so-dearly) departed characters,” he said.
Here’s the official synopsis for the series finale: “After all the fighting and loss, Clarke (Eliza Taylor) and her friends have reached the final battle. But is humanity worthy of something greater?”
‘Chicago Med’ Shuts Down Production for 2 Weeks After Crew Member Tests Positive for COVID
COVID has hit Chicago Med.
While many medical dramas are incorporating the very real pandemic into their upcoming storylines, the NBC drama set in Chicago has to deal with the effects of COVID in real life.
Deadline reports that production on the NBC medical drama has been shut down for two full weeks after a production team member was tested positive for the novel virus.
The team member was allegedly sent home immediately following the positive result and the series decided to pause production out of an abundance of caution.
This is reportedly the second member in the department to test positive.
Chicago Med began filming last week ahead of its season 6 premiere, which is set for Wednesday, November 11 along with sister shows, Chicago Fire and Chicago PD, which are said to begin production next month.
It’s unclear if this will affect the premiere date for the series.
