I say this every year but, as someone whose favorite season is Summer, the only good thing about the start of Fall for me is the new TV lineup. The full list of everything I am watching will be posted here once shows start to premiere, but the following is my list of returning shows I am most excited about.
1. You’re the Worst
Season 2 premieres September 9th on FXX, stars Aya Cash, Chris Geere, Desmin Borges and Kether Donohue. I missed the first season when it originally aired on FX, but caught up in *one day* thanks to Hulu because it is just that good. The show has been referred to as an “anti-rom-com,” and this season Jimmy and Gretchen are actually living together, so there is no way that will go well. It should be another hilarious season!
Season 2 premieres September 23rd on Fox, stars Taraji P. Henson, Terrence Howard, Trai Byers, Jussie Smollett, Bryshere Y. Gray, Grace Gealy, Kaitlin Doubleday, Ta’Rhonda Jones and Gabourey Sidibe. Not only did the audience continue to grow in size with each episode of the first season, the show also just kept getting better and better. I am very excited too see what happens with the Lyon family in season two. I also just really need Cookie back in my life.
3. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Season 3 premieres September 29th on ABC, stars Clark Gregg, Ming-Na Wen, Chloe Bennet, Iain De Caestecker, Elizabeth Henstridge, Brett Dalton, Adrianne Palicki, Nick Blood, Henry Simmons and Luke Mitchell. The first half of the second season started out really strong, but then they introduced us to the Inhumans and it started to get a little muddled. I still really enjoy the main characters and feel like they cleaned things up a bit in the finale, so I am interested to see where season three takes us. I mean, what the heck happened to Simmons?!
4. The Affair
Season 2 premieres October 4th on Showtime, stars Ruth Wilson, Maura Tierney, Dominic West and Joshua Jackson. The story seems simple: two married people start to have an affair over one summer in the Hamptons. However, this particular story was presented in such an interesting and complex way. The first season gave us two perspectives, but in season two the cheated-on spouses are also getting their points of view told, which should add some great intricacies. That also hopefully means more Joshua Jackson, so I am definitely on board.
