Summer may be coming to a close, but that means Fall is nearly here and the TV shows you have missed the most over their annual hiatus are back going to be back on your screen very soon!
Here are my top 5 picks…some spoilers ahead by the way!
Premier Date: October 11th, 2017
Okay so no spoilers here as this show has yet to make this debut, but I’m already very excited about it!
All I know is that Dynasty is based on the the 1980s series of the same name. From the looks of the trailer, we can expect a whole lot of drama that revolves around the lives of the very wealthy 1%- there seems to be a lot of love, hate, gossip, betrayal, and scandal going on here. Probably not something we can all relate to but it sure looks like the escapism we are looking for when watching soap operas!
Season 2 Premier Date: October 11th, 2017
If you’v read some of my other blog posts regarding television, you may have noticed I have a lot of love for Riverdale (After all, I did dedicate an entire blog post about why you should be watching it).
Season one provided a lot of closure- we find out that papa Blossom was the one who pulled the trigger (cold!) on his own son, Jason. Papa Blossom then went onto hang himself before the cops could get to him. However, we were left with the cliffhanger of what’s going to happen to Fred Andrews, Archie’s dad. He was shot by a mystery character, and while we’re set to get an answer to Fred’s fate during the second season premier, I’m sure this season will focus on the ‘why’ of it all.
Other plot lines I’m looking forward to is how will Cheryl cope now that she’s lost her brother and father- last we saw from her she appeared to be burning down her family house and from the looks of the season 2 trailer, Mama Blossom got caught in the fire (Cheryl is always on ‘fire’, and you know what they say about playing with fire…). We’re also going to meet Hiram Lodge, Veronica’s farther (When you’re in prison for embezzlement and responsible for ruining people’s lives, I doubt you’re going to get a very warm welcome). Also, I’m looking forward to seeing more of Betty’s dark side!
3. How to Get Away with Murder
Season 4 Premier Date: September 28th, 2017
Poor Wes- honestly, I know he’s just a TV character, but Wes’s murder is the saddest television death- the way he was murdered was so heartless and provided no closure for his character.
However, that’s what makes HTGAWM so great, it doesn’t play safe which means no one is safe. There are constant plots and twists, and I find that I have never actually correctly predicted the show’s bombshells- and I love that, I love being proven wrong.
The gut-wrenching realisation wasn’t who killed Wes, but who ordered for Wes to be murdered- Laurel’s father. Laurel and Wes finally gave into their love for each other in season three, and I’m sure season four will eventually see Laurel find out the devastating truth (and that discovery will be epic). We also see at the end of season 4 that Laurel actually knows (and appears to be friendly) with the man her father ordered to murder Wes…complicated? Yes. Will I be tuning in? 100%.
4. The Big Bang Theory
Season 11 Premier Date: September 25th, 2017
I’ll admit that I haven’t watched all ten seasons of the Big Bang Theory. Not that I grew out of love with it but when I moved to London, I didn’t have a television for the first few years which meant I had to watch everything from my laptop, BBT was just one of those series that didn’t make the list of shows I wanted to invest my time into (gosh this reeks of first world problems, doesn’t it XD)
Anywho, I now have a television and started watching this comedy from time to time on channel 4. The beauty of this show is that for a comedy, it has a lot of character development and plot lines, but viewers can easily tune in and out without feeling completely lost.
The season ten finale concluded with Sheldon proposing to Amy, and I’m really looking forward to what her answer will be in season eleven.
5. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Season 3 Premier Date: October 13th, 2017
For two seasons, we have been graced with this musical dramedy that continuously aims to remove the stigma behind a lot of important issues, especially revolving around mental health, all while still remaining humorous.
Season two ended with Josh leaving Rebecca at the aisle, and Rebecca determined to take her revenge on Josh. Oh and also Josh is also now set to become a priest…I hope this means Father Brah will get more screen time!
