Beginning this Sunday, our favorite fall television shows start to return. I am so excited I could scream. As you can see, I have a huge social life. I’m only going to hit the highlights for some shows, but there is a lot of great TV coming to screens within the next few weeks.
“The Good Wife”
Where can this show go from where it left off last season? Based on the trailer, amazing new places is the answer. I have said it until I was blue in the face, but there was no better show on all of television last year than “The Good Wife.” After killing off main cast member Josh Charles last year, in only one of the many pivotal, plot-twisting moments of last season, I was unsure of where this season could go. From episode one all the way to 22, the show never took the foot off the pedal. Having been robbed of all Emmys this year, minus Julianna Margulies’ deserving win, I cannot wait for the premiere this Sunday to prove to everyone once again why it is the best show on television. “The Good Wife” airs Sundays at 9/8 CDT on CBS.
“Sons of Anarchy”
The final ride is here. Sadly enough, this is the final season for the cast and crew. One positive, this looks to be the best season ever. Only two episodes into the final chapter, the show is off to a dark, violent and intense send off. Jax is on the hunt for revenge for his wife Tara’s murder. Gemma is slowly losing her mind while dealing with the events of last season’s finale. Drea de Matteo returns full time as Jax’s ex-wife and that’s only one of the many ingredients making for the most combustible season yet. It’s sad to say goodbye, but as viewers we need to sit back and enjoy one last ride. “Sons of Anarchy” airs Tuesdays at 10/9 CDY on FX.
Where in the world is Olivia Pope? Oh, you don’t know either. Well I guess you can join me and the rest of the gladiators waiting for that answer. Last seen, Liv was jetting off into the sunset with Jake by her side. The new season is set to begin a couple of months after last season’s intense finale. With the Pope & Associates team in shambles, the White House a mess, Olivia will be returning to put the pieces back together and do what she does best: fix it. “Scandal” airs Thursday nights at 9/8 CDT on ABC.
“Once Upon a Time”
It’s about to get real chilly in Storybrooke. Sisters Anna and Elsa, from Disney’s blockbuster film “Frozen,” are coming to the hit ABC show. Now, being a late-to-the-party viewer when it comes to the madness of everything that is “Frozen,” I was skeptical of this choice. However, now that I have seen the movie, I’m all in. That ending scene of Elsa appearing and shooting ice from hands as she walked out of the barn was powerful. It put a great cap on a terrific last half-season for the show. Coming into this season, there will be more familiar Disney names visiting the show, and with budding answers to questions left off last year, it’s sure to make for magical TV. “Once Upon a Time” airs Sundays at 8/7 CDT on ABC.
“American Horror Story: Freak Show”
Although this really could have been in last weeks article, I am throwing it in this week’s because I believe it goes better. The fourth season will be set in Jupiter, Florida in 1952 and will be centered around one of the few remaining freak shows at the time, as its members do anything to keep the business alive. The previews for this season freak me out, pun intended. The fact that the main villain this season will be a killer clown is almost too much for me to handle. Jessica Lange returns to helm another venture into the dark, twisted, crazy world created by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. Returning stars also include: Sarah Paulson, Kathy bates, Angela Bassett and Evan Peters. “American Horror Story: Freak Show” airs Wednesday nights at 10/9 CDT on FX beginning Oct. 8.
