Summertime TV is now behind us and, as always, the networks will tout their newest series in hopes of securing this season’s new breakout hit, and perhaps a potential Emmy winner. Of course, before that occurs, television’s new additions will have to compete against the many returning fan favorites which fans are eagerly waiting to see again.

Fortunately, this year’s premiere schedule begins with a slow burn from FX, FXX and HBO before the final two weeks of September, which will prove to test even the most adept television viewers.

If you happen to make it through to October, however, two additional weeks of condensed premieres will help make sure that you’re more than ready enough for the many on-the-fly series cancelations – which thankfully always occur.

You can check out a complete list of dates below:

ascension syfy tv preview 2014 Fall TV Show Premiere & Return Dates   Sep, Oct, Nov

November means it’s all over, essentially. Sure, you may now have an overly-packed DVR to contend with – which makes this month’s minimal premieres a godsend. Unfortunately in December, all of the shows you’ve started to watch will take a lengthy hiatus until the middle of July.

The war is not over, however, and the numerous midseason replacements that will make their way to television in the months following November may have you rethink your entire viewing schedule.
