Fall is almost upon us, and, with it, the new television season is almost upon us as well. Many new series will premiere this season, and, just as quickly as they premiere, many of them will also fade into obscurity. (Does anyone else remember last season's "Animal Practice?" If not, it's not surprising.)
The 2013 season is chock full of television goodness. Many returning favorites are getting ready to amp up the action for another season. But what of the new crop of shows? Which new series piques your interest? Here are just a few of the most hyped series of the 2013 season.
ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D" created by Joss Whedon (premiering Tuesday, September 24.) Hot on the heels of the success of films such as The Avengers and Thor, ABC hopes to cash in on the superhero craze. With Whedon at the helm, viewers can expect a healthy dose of wit and dry humor mixed in with gut wrenching emotion. Plus, Agent Coulson's back, though viewers are left to wonder how the heck that happened.
FOX's "Sleepy Hollow" (premiered Monday, September 16.) Tom Mison stars as Ichabod Crane in the most recent version of the Washington Irving story. Nicole Beharie ("The Good Wife") co-stars as Abbie Mills, the town Sheriff. Together, Crane and Mills investigate deaths caused by the Headless Horseman. Will viewers lose their head over the series? Only time will tell.
NBC's "The Blacklist" (premiering Monday, September 23.) James Spader returns to television as Raymond "Red" Reddington, one of the FBI's most wanted fugitives. In exchange for turning himself in, Reddington will help capture other wanted fugitives on the FBI's blacklist - but only if he gets to partner with Agent Keen, played by Megan Boone ("Bluebloods.") Spader is known for his ability to portray creepy and evil characters, so viewers should expect to see him in his element.
The CW's "The Tomorrow People" (premiering October 9.) Robbie Amell, cousin to Stephen Amell of the CW's "Arrow," stars as one of the teens who are the next stage in human evolution. The Tomorrow People are described by the CW as "a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation, and telepathic communication" who are being hunted down by Ultra, a paramilitary group of scientists.
