Forget jumping in a pile of leaves; instead jump into this season’s fall line of TV shows.

Clear your schedule, because the best shows are back! Viewers have been waiting in months of anticipation for the return of their favorite fall TV shows. This season a range of genres are expected, all the way from comedy to horror. You can catch the seventh spine chilling season of FX’s American Horror Story: Cult at 10:00 p.m. on Tuesday nights. This season teases political flames while scaring the audience with some gory and gruesome scenes. The critically acclaimed sitcom, Brooklyn Nine-Nine is on at 9:30 p.m. Tuesdays on Fox. The show focuses on the immature New York police department detective, Jake Peralta, and his day to day shenanigans. ABC’s medical drama series, Grey’s Anatomy, is back for the fourteenth season Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. with some new faces as well as returning series regulars.

“I like Grey’s Anatomy because of the drama. There’s always something interesting going on,” said senior Christina Sepulveda.

Saturday Night Live has started up again for it’s fourty-third season. Ryan Gosling, JAY-Z, Gal Gadot, Sam Smith, and Kumail Nanjiani are just a few celebrities expected to appear on an episode this season.

Blackish returns after moving to ABC for it’s fourth season. The show is full of humor, heart, and even a few musical numbers. Scandal is back for the seventh season Thursdays on ABC. Season three of Mr. Robot has returned to the USA network every Wednesday at 10:00 p.m. The drama-thriller is about an antisocial computer programmer, Elliot Alderson, who works a double life of cyber-engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night. Later in the month, zombie apocalypse drama The Walking Dead returns on AMC. In the new eighth season that will premiere on October 22nd, zombies don’t appear to be the main threat to Rick and his group of survivors. After nearly a year and a half since the first season blew up, the long awaited second season of Netflix’s original series Stranger Things will be released on October 27, just in time for Halloween.

“I like that the show takes place in the 80’s. I’m planning on binge-watching season 2,” said senior Sam Mecca.

In November, comedy-drama Shameless returns. The eighth season will expand more on the development of the dysfunctional Gallagher family. The new season will premiere on the November 5, on Showtime at 9:00 p.m. So go and grab some friends, pop some popcorn, and make sure to tune in.
