The fall season is normally when the biggest and hottest television shows return for a new season or have their world premiere.  This year is somewhat different, however, since the TV industry has been somewhat turned upside down by the coronavirus pandemic. Due to various production delays, there is a handful of network shows that won’t be making their usual post-summer returns, but the TV landscape is far from dead— in fact, it’s most definitely alive.

If anything, think of this as good news.

As the dawn of the Streaming Wars between Disney+, Netflix, and the hundreds of other streaming services, networks, and cable channels approaches, television finds itself in a strange place, an increasingly influential – and overcrowded – medium of art, one facing the end of an era with the conclusion of cultural touchstones like Game of Thrones and Big Bang Theory. Simply put, there are just way too many great shows to watch so having some of our favourite not returning right away gives us time to catch up on others.

This fall’s offerings include new shows which look very promising and the return of some of our favourites. What follows is a list of the most anticipated fall shows along with their release dates— and while you are here, be sure to also check out our fall album preview.
