I know, you’re still reeling about your favorite shows getting canceled. However, it’s a new year of TV — and a lot of new shows are coming. So, here’s a few that you should tune into this year, now that you have some free time.
I’m still in a post-The Following hangover recovery, but I’m ready for something new. I had to say goodbye to Revenge, but I’m ready for Ryan Murphy murder back in my life. Don’t you agree? Here’s your quick guide to TV coming up (and for a refresher of everything picked up and canceled, here’s our scorecard.)
2015 TV Schedule: The New Shows That Could Replace The Cancellations
What’s out: Revenge
What will fill your Revenge-needed heart: Scream Queens (Fox, Fall)
When asked about its plot, EP Ryan Murphy said, “It opens in a flashback to 1995 at the sorority where something horrible happens. It’s a mystery that goes unsolved. Flash forward 20 years to today, and it looks like someone is out for revenge. Something horrible happened to a pledge and on the anniversary of that crime, someone is out for vengeance.”
What’s out: The Following
What you’ll Follow next: The Catch (ABC, midseason)
With Shonda Rhimes behind the scenes, and Hannibal writer Jennifer Schur as the writing, there’s no doubt this will be creepy! Plus, it revolved around a forensics accountant and her life is turned upside down. We can expect romance and horror, which we always loved in The Following.
What’s out: The Mindy Project
What will fill you comedic heart: Grandfathered (Fox, Fall)
Where there is John Stamos, there is hope. The new comedy stars Josh Peck, Christina Milian and Wilmer Valderrama, and has that witty, sexy comedy that you loved in Mindy.
What’s out: Forever
What you’ll never let go of: The Frankenstein Code (Fox, 2016)
After just seeing the trailer, the new show got me. It’s a modern case on the myth of Frankenstein when a 70-year-old man is killed, and then wakes up in a much younger and extremely powerful body.
What’s out: Marry Me
What will fill your Revenge-needed heart: Hot & Bothered (NBC, midseason)
Eva Longoria takes on the role of an actress whose TV show casts her ex– and the drama behind the set is much more entertaining than in front of the camera. This will definitely fill that need for an entertaining, sexy and really funny show.
Which show are you excited for, HollywoodLifers?
