7 New Shows to Watch This Season
- This Is Us
Starring Mandy Moore (A Walk to Remember, Tangled) and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gilmore Girls), this earnest family drama can make a fan out of the most skeptic of skeptics. There's something here for everyone—keep an eye out for the major twist at the end of the first episode!
- The Good Place (Fridays, 2:30 pm and 7:30 pm on ETC)
What would you do if you died and went to heaven, only to find out that the people up there mixed up your records and that you probably should be in "the bad place" instead? This is Kristen Bell’s (Frozen, Veronica Mars) interesting dilemma in this new comedy from the creators of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Parks and Recreation.
- No Tomorrow
Have you ever met someone, really clicked with them, even imagined a life with them—only to be slapped back to reality with a major deal breaker, like their strong belief that the world will end in x number of days? Evie’s rational mind is telling her not to take Xavier seriously, but maybe, just maybe, this guy, with his carpe diem attitude and “Apocalyst” bucket list, is on to something.
- Pitch (Fridays, 3 pm and 8 pm on ETC)
Girl grows up training to be the very best. Girl finally gets the opportunity of a lifetime, but succumbs to pressure and nerves. Girl dusts herself off, tries again, and outdoes herself. Baseball enthusiast or not, you'll find yourself rooting for Ginny Baker, the first female baseball player to play in the Major League in this fictional drama.
- The Exorcist
Craving for some old school horror? Based on the iconic 1973 film about a family's demonic possession, The Exorcist might just be the fix you need.
Lucas Till wreaks a different kind of Havok (LOL, sorry) in this reboot of the popular '80s show. Learn from Angus "Mac" MacGyver, who has never met a problem he can't solve with his particular set of skills, skills he has acquired over a very long career, skills that make him a nightmare for people...oops, wrong franchise!
- Marvel's Luke Cage (September 30 on Netflix)
If you're a fan of Daredevil and Jessica Jones, you probably marked September 30 on your calendar as soon as the release date was announced. This Netflix original is set in the same universe as the first two Marvel titles but promises whole new adventures. After Luke Cage, there's Iron Fist to look forward to, and then all four heroes will unite in The Defenders. Exciting stuff!
