The Fall TV season is an exciting time for viewers, and not just because it brings the return of many of their favorite shows. In addition, it is also the time that networks and streaming platforms finally premiere some of their more exciting and ambitious new titles. So with the Fall season now underway, here are five of the most anticipated new TV shows set to premiere over the next few months.
Unlike ABC’s Inhumans, which has been on the receiving end of some hilariously bad reviews, there’s been nothing but positive early buzz for Runaways. Based on the beloved comic book series of the same name and coming from veteran showrunner Josh Schwartz (The O.C., Chuck), Hulu’s first series partnership with Marvel looks to be one of the best shows from the mammoth comic book studio yet.
Marvel’s Runaways will premiere on Hulu on November 21st.
Amazon’s Lore is one of the more interesting titles included in this list, and that’s not just because it’s based on the immensely popular podcast of the same name. Throughout its first six episodes, the anthology series will celebrate the origins of the horror genre by combining documentary footage, historical mixed media, narration, and cinematic scenes to bring to life terrifying true stories. With just that concept alone, Lore is not one you’ll want to miss.
Lore will premiere on Amazon on October 13th.
This HBO series made its premiere this past Sunday night and is already receiving some major critical acclaim for itself. That’s not much of a surprise, though, considering it’s coming from the mind of The Wire creator, David Simon, and features a star-studded cast including James Franco (in two roles), Maggie Gyllenhaal, Method Man, Zoe Kazan, and more. Set in the 1970s New York porn scene, The Deuce is one of the most well-crafted original dramas to come along all year.
The Deuce airs every Sunday night on HBO.
Led by Michelle Dockery, Jack O’Connell, Jeff Daniels, and Scoot McNairy, Godless takes place in the 1880s and follows a ruthless outlaw hell-bent on hunting down his old partner, who has hidden himself away in a town mysteriously made up entirely of women. In case that cast and premise weren’t enough too, then the involvement of creator Steven Soderbergh (The Knick, The Girlfriend Experience) should be more than enough to build excitement for the series.
Godless premieres on Netflix on November 22nd.
Anytime David Fincher is attached to a project, on either film or TV, it’s worth getting excited about. So it’s not surprising just how good Netflix’s Mindhunter – which features Fincher delving back into the same true crime, serial killer territory he mastered in Zodiac – already looks. Based on how Fincher’s last collaboration with Netflix (House of Cards) turned out as well, it’s very likely Mindhunter could be one of this year’s best new shows.
Mindhunter will premiere its first season on Netflix on October 13th.
