Fall TV is starting up again and I am very excited. Here is my list of Top 5 Most Anticipated TV Shows this fall.
5. Season 4 of How to Get Away With Murder
Created by Pete Nowalk and produced by television powerhouse Shonda Rhimes, How to get Away with Murder follows the lives of law students as they work for cutthroat lawyer Annalise Keating, and all of the serious issues that they run into along the way. The first half of season 3 led to the build up of finding out that fan favorite Wes Gibbons was murdered, and the back half followed the rest of the team trying to find out who did it. Season 4 promises to be just as anxiety inducing and drama filled as those in the past and I can’t wait!
How to Get Away with Murder stars Viola Davis, Billy Brown, Jack Falahee, Karla Souza, Aja Naomi King, Matt McGorry, Charlie Weber, and Liza Weil
The first two episode has already aired, but How to Get Away With Murder airs on Thursdays at 10:00 on ABC.
4. Season 2 of Riverdale
Riverdale was a surprise hit last year. Based off of the Archie comics, the show follows teenagers Archie, Betty, Veronica, and Jughead as they work to solve the murder of fellow classmate Jason Blossom. Season 1 gained the show a huge fan following with its many twists and turns as well as the romantic aspect of the show. The season finale left fans shocked and eager to learn what will happen next as the fate of a main character hangs in the balance.
I’m excited to see where the show will go from here and how the characters will grow in the season to come.
Riverdale stars KJ Apa, Cole Sprouse, Camila Mendes, Lili Reinhart, Casey Cott, Madelaine Petsch, Ashleigh Murray, Luke Perry, Mädchen Amick, and Marisol Nichols.
Riverdale returns Wednesday October 11 at 8 pm
3. Season 6 of Arrow
Arrow is basically the show that started the superhero tv trend that is so common today. If Arrow hadn’t been a success, then we would have the rest of the DC TV shows that we have, and most likely Marvel wouldn’t be the television powerhouse it is today.
Over the past five seasons, the show has followed former billionaire, playboy Oliver Queen after he returned from a deserted island for five years and becoming the vigilante, the Green Arrow. In the past, the show has used flashbacks to explain what happened to Oliver in his past and help connect it to the current storyline. Last season saw Oliver’s past as the Arrow come back to get revenge on him, and the season brought the show full circle in the final episode when it went out with a bang.
Arrow stars Stephen Amell, David Ramsey, Emily Bett Rickards, Willa Holland, Katie Cassidy, Paul Blackthorn, Echo Kellum, Rick Gonzalez, and Juliana Harkavy
Arrow returns Thursday October 12 at 9 pm.
2. Season 1 of The Punisher
The Punisher is Marvel’s newest addition to their series of Netflix shows. It will follow Frank Castle on his journey to kill the people responsible for the death of his family. Castle was originally introduced into the universe in season 2 of Daredevil and was an immediate hit with fans, leading the company to give him his own spinoff series.
The Punisher stars Jon Bernthal, Ben Barnes, Jason R. Moore, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Michael Nathanson, Jaime Ray Newman, Amber Rose Revah, Paul Schulze, and Deborah Ann Woll.
All episodes of The Punisher are supposed to be released on Netflix sometime this fall, but the date is unknown and has recently been pushed back due to the tragedy in Las Vegas.
1. Season 2 of Stranger Things
Last year, Netflix’s Stranger Things took the world by storm. Season 1 followed a group of kids as they try to solve the mysterious disappearance of their missing friend Will Byers. Along the way they meet a little girl with powers, and discover an alternate dimension that the government is trying to keep hidden.
Season 2 will be a continuation of the first season and, hopefully, answer the questions the remained unresolved at the end of season 1.
All episodes of season 2 of Stranger Things will be available on Netflix on October 27.
