Fall 2018 TV | Exciting & New TV is Here
When autumn rolls around, much of the buzz surrounding its arrival belongs to fashion. The trends, and the excitement of pulling out our favorite boots and scarves. But while all of this and pumpkin spice is all well and good, one of the seasonal things I get most excited for is NEW TV!
That’s right, as we enter a new season in which the weather changes, we also enter a new season of TV premieres.
To be honest, most of these will be shows I’ll likely watch an episode or two of, and forget about. Really, this probably isn’t a bad thing considering all of the shows I’m currently watching. Some of which I watch more faithfully than others, while there are some I am way (like multiple seasons) out of the loop on. Oh, and I’m still TV fangirl bitter over the cancellation of my 2017 favorite, The Brave. Just keeping it real.
But let’s shift our focus back to the new (and upcoming!) TV premieres. I’m excited about a few from this list (even with many buckling to PC pressure), and those I am excited about, well I do so hope they live up to these expectations. Since today is return or premiere day for many shows, and many more to follow them up during the week, it seems today is the perfect day to share Finding Wonderland’s annual preview.
Fall 2018 TV | Exciting & New TV is Here!
Let’s have a look at (some of) the fall 2018 TV line up! The shows are sorted by premiere date, and then, A-Z.
[sc name=”Disclosure Notice”]
1: Magnum P.I. (CBS)
Yes, I know this one isn’t getting good buzz (or I read one article that downgrades it). What can I say? Yes, I’ll own up to the fact that I watched the entire original run. Yes, I’ll admit I’m excited about this one. Why? Well a: because CBS has an amazing track record when it comes to re-boots and b: because I love a feel-good (maybe sometimes silly) TV show. Buy on Amazon Video (as episodes air)
2: Manifest (NBC)
This contemporary set story has sci-fi vibes. It centers on a plane that takes off, only to land on a date that’s five years later. Intriguing or a no-go? What’s your verdict. PS: Josh Dallas of Once Upon a Time shares a starring credit. Buy on Amazon Video
3: FBI (CBS)
Follows the New York F.B.I office in what I hope is a well-plotted drama. The cast is mostly (to me) unknowns, so that makes the idea of this one more interesting. Plus, this is a Dick Wolf production. Buy on Amazon Video
4: Single Parents (ABC)
I’m not a sitcom person, but this is one of those shows I’ll likely watch the pilot of – just for giggles. I’ve found that I really do like American Housewife (it’s my I-just-want-to-laugh TV binge), which makes me think this should might be one I can interchange with ‘Housewife.’ Buy on Amazon Video
5: All American (CW)
Rumored to have a kind of Friday Night Lights (random fact: I’ve never seen this one) vibe, this teen drama introduces us to a high school kid raised by a single mother. As a talented football player, he’s recruited by a tough coach, and this one is also loosely inspired by NFL player, Spencer Playsinger. Where the story will go from here is anyone’s guess. Buy on Amazon Video
6: Charmed (CW)
A re-boot of the 90s TV show, this one will follow the same three-woman plot pattern, but this is where the similarities end. This show has all the markings of a “diverse” story by introducing viewers to three very different personalities. Buy on Amazon Video
7: The Rookie (ABC)
Nathan Fillion is back on our TV screens in this new cop show. Though by the looks of the promos, this will be a very different role for him (he previously starred in Castle). In this he plays a man who decides, at an older age, to become a cop. Buy on Amazon Video
8: Legacies (CW)
A fantasy series about a girl who discovers she comes from a long line of vampires! Legacies is a kind of spin off or continuation of the Vampire Diaries world. Buy on Amazon Video
9: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (Netflix)
Just in time for Halloween, Netflix revives the story of a favorite TV witch, only this time, her stories take a dark turn. Needless to say, I suspect if you grew up watching the Melissa Joan Hart version, these will differ greatly.
