Fall TV season is upon us! Check out our list of top 5 shows, you need to tune into this season!
1. Gotham is going to be Fox’s new hit. The tale looks at some of the most iconic villains through the eyes of Detective James Gordon. It’s a time when there is no Batman, because the man who will become Batman, is just a young boy, who has lost his parents. It’s risky to do a Batman show, without Batman, but the lineup of villains and the backstory to one of our favorites heroes of all time, seems promising. It premieres Sept 22.
2. How To Get Away With Murder rounds out TGIT- Thank God It’s Thursday. Let’s be honest, Thursday is Shonda Rhimes night and it’s the beeeest night of television. Murder focuses on Professor Annalise Keating, a Criminal Law 101 professor at a prestigious Philadelphia university. She becomes intertwined in a murder scandal, along with her students. Scandal, murder, and mystery? Um, we’re in. Murder premieres Sept. 25 on ABC.
3. Jane the Virgin is really about a brilliant hotel receptionist and soon-to-be teacher, who finds out she’s pregnant after a mix up at the doctor’s office. Can you say artificial insemination? Becuase that’s the only explanation since Jane is a virgin, who values and treasures her virginity. Imagine the shock of waking up one day pregnant! It’s based off a Venezuelan telenovela, but it does have moment so charm. Plus, didn’t the title make you want to tune in?
4. Vampire be gone, because 2014 is all about kids with incurable diseases.. apparently. Red Band Society is about unruly kids, who are being mentored by adolescents. It’s set in a Los Angeles pediatric hospital. It’s a little bit Glee, a little bit The Breakfast Club, with a hint of The Fault in Our Stars. The whole story of the group of youngin’s and their mentors is told by Griffin Gluck, starring as a coma patient. Downfall of this show might be the fact that glamorizing kids with diseases isn’t something Hollywood should be proud of. Anyone who has ever been sick can tell you, it’s nothing like it’s portrayed on TV. But maybe the emotionally substantial moments will be enough to save it? It premiere Sept. 17 on Fox.
5. Another 2014 theme…. DC superheroes. Cause everyone needs a hero in these times. It’s a spinoff of Arrow, so it also already has quite a good amount of fans. Seeing his mother get murder (just like Batman) and his father wrongly accused, Barry Allen gets taken in by Detective West and his family. Hoping to find out what really happened to his mother, and clear his father, he stumbles upon an accelerator which causes an explosion and puts him in acoma. Nine months later, he wakes up with superhuman speed. But there are also other superhuman created in the explosion, and Allen becomes the Flash, protecting Central City.
That wraps up our Top 5 Must See Shows of the Fall. Here are our “Give it A Shot” nominations.
They have potential… but they also have potential to be super cliche and fail miserably. Only time will tell.
- There’s something so thrilling about summer affairs, right? Showtime’s The Affair is a provocative adult drama about two couples whose marriages are seriously put to the test by an affair. The series shows us the affair from all angles, and point of views, so it’s fun to make your own conclusion based on which character’s story you believe. West, is a novelist and father, who is happily married, until he falls into bed with a young waitress. Potential? Definitely. Especially with the Maura Tierney and Joshua Jackson. The tension is there. The story is there. But are the viewers there? It premieres Oct 12.
- The new Sherlock-Holmes-y inspired Forever has an immortal twist. But can the show stay immortal? Forever focuses on Dr. Henry Morgan, a gifted and intelligent medical examiner who happens to be immortal. He dies in the first episode, and somehow always returns naked, in water. He’s not sure if he can die, why he keeps coming back, and that’s why he studies the dead. He wants answers. It’s an interesting concept, but the execution is pretty bland compared to all the other good shows out this season. Do we even want to begin trying to solve the mystery? Do we want to get involved? It stars Ringer’s Ioan Gruffudd, which gives it a 50/50 chance and makes me skeptical, since I got involved last time and was left hanging! It premieres Sept 22.

Is ‘Alaska Daily’ Renewed for a Second Season?
Alaska Daily is one of the best and most refreshing shows coming out of this fall/winter TV cycle, with Hilary Swank as Eileen Fitzgerald, a disgraced journalist who finds a new home in Alaska, bringing coverage to the often overlooked (purposefully ignored) stories of murderer indigenous women alongside her partner-in-crime, Roz Friendly played by Grace Dove.
With the season finale scheduled to air on ABC on Thursday, March 30, marking the season’s 11th episode, many fans are wondering if the network will renew the series for Season 2 and allow audiences to follow Eileen’s adventures of pursuing truth and justice on a local scale.
So far, there’s no word from ABC on whether or not a renewal is on the books, though a verdict is expected to come sometime after the Alaska Daily Season 1 finale airs.
But while the series has amassed a loyal and dedicated following—with many of you reaching out to me and noting that you wish the show received more publicity and promotion from the network itself—there might not be enough love for ABC to justify a renewal.
The series hasn’t been able to build up the audience or gain the momentum it needs in its short primetime run, which honestly, is a shame because of the important storytelling and refreshing and diverse cast propelling meaningful conversations and calling for change and action.
As Deadline reports, the series has “sizable internal support but has not been able to break through in a meaningful way, making a Season 2 renewal unlikely.”
Still, I remain hopeful that ABC will consider a renewal as ratings, though down a bit from the series premiere, bring in about 2.7 million viewers weekly, according to TVSeriesFinale.
When a decision about the fate of the series does eventually come down, we’ll update this article accordingly!
When Is Season 3 of ‘Ginny and Georgia’ Coming Out?
Ginny and Georgia centers on the heartwarming yet extremely complicated bond between a mother and her daughter after they put down roots in a New England town.
With so many compelling storylines and incredible characters of all ages, it’s no wonder that the coming-of-age drama has become a fan favorite among Netflix audiences.
The second season of Ginny and Georgia premiered on Jan. 5, 2023, which means that a third season is likely far off, especially considering Brianne Howey, who plays Georgia, just announced her first pregnancy, which will possibly delay filming.

Of course, Netflix has to renew the series for a third season. As of March 28, 2023, it has not given the show a green light for additional episodes.
Fans shouldn’t be too worried, however, as a renewal is very likely considering the show’s performance, the rabid fan base, and the fact that season 3 ended on such a cliffhanger—Netflix knows that fans will be clamoring for another season to see how the situation resolves itself.
As for a premiere date, well, there isn’t one just yet. Until the series is renewed and production begins, it’s a bit too difficult to come up with a date for new episodes. The season could likely arrive in February 2024 if we’re looking at the previous premieres for both seasons 1 and 2, which both debuted at the start of 2021 and 2023, respectively.
But with Howey’s pregnancy thrown into the mix, that could delay things a bit, and it wouldn’t be the worst thing if the series returned during the summer when there’s a lull in content and fans are seeking out something to binge-watch and get invested in.
Either way, when Netflix makes an official decision, you’ll be the first to know as we’ll update this article accordingly!
Until then, you can gear up for the final season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Riverdale, and Firefly Lane!
