As the crisp fall air brings pumpkin spice lattes, sweaters and autumn colors, it also brings what will keep us inside on those brisk days: fall television shows. Whether you will be looking for comedy, drama or suspense, the lineup of new and returning television shows for this fall has something to fulfill everyone’s needs. So sit back, relax and choose which one of these shows will be helping you procrastinate your homework this fall.
“Super Fun Night”
The hilarious Rebel Wilson (known as Fat Amy from “Pitch Perfect”) has created, written and will star in “Super Fun Night,” premiering this fall. Wilson plays Kimmie, a dorky and not-so-adventurous girl who decides to try to fit in at the clubs after she’s encouraged by a promotion she receives at her law firm. This new show has an underdog, an extremely awkward main character and promises laughs from even the coldest of people. What more could you ask for?
Premieres Wednesday, Oct. 2, 9:30 p.m.
This brand new show is set in the year 2048, where technological advances have overcome human society and crime is uncontrollable. Police officer John Kennex (Karl Urban) and Dorian (Michael Ealy), a highly advanced robot, unite to solve futuristic crime and attempt to restore humanity in a time when life is wildly different.
Mondays, 8 p.m.
This heart-warming comedy explores the lives of a family living in the 1980s, where hair bands and leg warmers dominate the scene.
