As usual, once September sneaks up on me I hop on the computer and look up all the new television shows that will be airing this Fall season. I watch trailers and read synopses and then make a list of the new shows with their premiere dates that I plan on checking out.
These are the new shows I'll be checking out this Fall season:
"A brilliant young attorney (Hayley Atwell), who is also the daughter of a former U.S. president, is blackmailed to head up NYC's new Conviction Integrity Unit. She and her team investigate cases where people may have been wrongly convicted."
The synopsis of this show is fairly typical and nothing too out of the ordinary. But it's the cast that makes me want to watch it. I'll pretty much watch anything Hayley Atwell is in.
The Good Place
"The Good Place, is a town where those who have been good throughout their life go to once they have passed away. Michael (Danson) is the architect who oversees the town. Eleanor (Bell) arrives at the Good Place and realizes she doesn't deserve to be there. With the help of Michael, Eleanor seeks to right her wrongs seeking to finally earn her place at the Good Place."
This show actually has a different story line but of course the fact that Kristen Bell stars in it, and gets to be sarcastic and funny, has me sold on this show.
"A subversive take on Archie, Betty, Veronica, and their friends, exploring the surrealism of small town life - the darkness and weirdness bubbling beneath Riverdale's wholesome facade."
This show doesn't have a premiere date yet but I definitely need to watch it. A dark and weird Riverdale sounds like it could be amazing.
"Shows how an insurance company deals with destruction left by DC Superheros."
This is another show without a premiere date yet so I have to impatiently wait to see it. The show premise sounds like a lot of fun and the cast is pretty great too.
Good Girls Revolt
"A look at the personal and professional lives of employees at an American news magazine in the late 1960s."
The storyline sounds interesting and I'm a sucker for all things retro.
"An unlikely trio traveling through time to battle unknown criminals in order to protect history as we know it."
Timeless sounds like it could be fun since the premise is exciting. We'll just see how the acting holds up. I've been skeptical of sci-fi shows since last year's super disappointing Minority Report.
What new shows do you plan on watching this year?
