Fortunately we have organized all the premiere dates here for you, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to figure out which shows will receive your time. If you need a bit of help in deciding what to watch, make sure to check out a trimmed-down selection in our premiere picks.

  1. Almost Human, Arrow and Sherlock for the win!!!

    • Sherlock

  2. Very handy and greatly appreciated in its detail (must’ve taken a while). I loathe the concept of a mid season hiatus.


  3. What about American Horror Story on the 8th?

  4. Almost Human, Agents of Shield, Sleepyhollow, True Detective, Archer, Black Sails, Banshee, Chozen,

  5. Helix sounds interesting def gonna check that out. Cant wait for Arrow, walking dead, orphan black and supernatural

  6. I honestly didn’t think I’d like Orphan Black as much as I do. Season 2 is gonna be something!

    • Orphan Black being in the article’s picture is why I clicked through. Amazing show!

    • Hmmm, I’m going to need to check it out. Is it on Netflix?

      • Not on Netflix yet unfortunately. Amazon, VUDU, Xbox Live, PSN and iTunes have it (for $ of course).

        Available on BBCAmerica On Demand if your TV provider carries that.

  7. Isn’t work-a-holics on season 4?

    • Also, thanks for the list. Its great to have this in one place when trying to set up a dvr for the year!

    • Yes, you are correct. The new season is the fourth.

  8. Fantastic list! Winter break is over folks! Let’s get the SHOWS on the road!!!!

  9. Any UK air dates too?

    I know Arrow returns February 20th, Revolution is March 2nd, Sleepy Hollow is January 15th and Orphan Black will most likely air in August like season 1 did.

    • I know right? It’d be great if we UK viewers could get a clear view of when these shows are airing in the UK.

      • Does the UK not have the internet or Google?

        Pretty rude if you ask me. Someone went through the trouble to put this list out and you whine about the UK? Check a site from the UK.

        I certainly wouldn’t expect another country on the other side of the world to post t.v. schedules for me.

        • Your post was the only rude one here, MovieB.

          I check Google, nobody seems to know so I figured professional TV journalists might have an insight that we regular viewers don’t have.

          Apparently, we can’t ask without rude Americans weighing in with their unnecessary and unwanted opinions.

          The Grim Reaper from Monty Python’s Meaning Of Life comes to mind in response to you, sir.

          • @Dazz

            I’m not American, I’m Canadian.

            Both of your posts were rude as they basically stated the person who wrote it didn’t do “enough”.

            This site is American based, box office predictions, release dates and such would lead me to believe that. So my point was it makes no logical sense to complain to an American website about not giving you tv times for 100 different shows over a 3 month period in a different continent.

            You disagree? That’s your business.

            • It doesn’t matter where you’re from You’re still the rude one here by making assumptions about our intentions.
              Go read my post again and show me where I said the writer wasn’t doing enough or where I demanded that Screenrant put up UK Air Dates. You mean this “It’d be great if we UK viewers could get a clear view of when these shows are airing in the UK”

              • @ALL – Let’s put the internet muskets down for a moment before we have another Revolution on our hands, OK?

                @MovieB – I’d probably respond the same way as these other guys if someone made a condescending comment like the one you posted. Wasn’t really any need for that.

                @Dazz – Adding UK release times could be a good idea (I’m not sure how much of our traffic comes from the UK though) but it’s definitely something worth mentioning to Antony Ocasio. Drop him a line via our Contact US page and see what he says. :D

                Paul Young

                • That’s fine with me. It just got my back up when he took a well meaning comment from me and turned into some kind of personal attack on Anthony, partially since I didn’t want Anthony to get the wrong impression.

                  I could go on but I think that’d just cause another argument and I’d much rather let this die down. (By which I mean about TV network companies and their attitude towards non-US countries)

                • Hi, it would be great if you could post U.K listings. Whenever I want to find out when a series is returning I can never find out, even if I specify the U.K on Google it still comes up with U.S listings.

        • You know I’m referring to the people who make the shows right? To begin with I get all my movie and TV news from Screenrant so yes actually it would make things a lot easier if they’d make mention of the UK air dates IF and when the people behind those shows gave out the dates.

          I can’t stand people like you. I’m not demanding, I’m merely pointing out that it’d be cool if Screenrant started putting up UK air dates. Is that not ok with you? Am I suddenly not allowed to point out things that could increase site traffic? Playstation Lifestyle is an American based site and they post the Playstation Store updates for Europe and Asia.

          But yeah like I mentioned above. It was mostly aimed at the guys in charge of these shows who mention when the shows are coming back to the US but left out every other country the show airs in.

        • Yes we do but BT and other service providers stop u from using these sites to watch TV for free cause they want us all to pay for it which most of us won’t do cause we can’t afford it and why should we when other countries do not have too!!!!!!

      • @JamesF

        Exactly because SR is the only site I visit for TV and movie news and it can be frustrating seeing “US air date is …”. There are British people working for the site yet it seems to selfishly ignore readers from around the world.

        I mean, did you know that The Tomorrow People debuts in the UK next Monday night on E4 at 9pm? I didn’t until I checked my on screen TV guide to make sure shows I record weren’t clashing.

        • Right? As I mentioned above Playstation Lifestyle is an American based site and they’ve always managed to put up PSN Store updates for Europe and Asia. BTW I’m not sure how often these guys update but when I’m stuck for air dates (I was referring to convinence MovieB) I usually head over to this site every now and then, I’m only just started using it so again I’m not clear on how often they update.

  10. You forgot The Following. Sun, Jan 19 on FOX

    • I guess it is a forgettable show… :P

  11. Also, for the Netflix fans out there, Hemlock Grove comes back in March. From everything I am reading online, the writing is suppose to be improved along with some new additions(Madeline Brewer from Orange is the new black)

  12. Rectify comes in May, looking forward to that. Hannibal, Americans, and Game of Thrones.

  13. I’m currently watching Agents of Shield, The Blacklist, Reign, Sleepy Hollow, Almost Human, and Arrow. Also watched Ironside while it was on (although it was not that good…I can see why they cancelled it), and have been watching Revolution on Netflix. I will probably watch Crossbones, Black Sails, maybe Chicago PD, Helix, and a couple others as well. The Assets and Fleming look watchable as well. Looking forward to seeing some of the new stuff coming next year as well, like The Flash, Agent Carter, and Hourman, that all seem to be in production. Because of my work schedule, fortunately I can catch anything I miss on either Netflix when available or else on the network channel websites.

    • Oh yes, and also watching “Strike BacK’ as well. Fun series.

  14. Am I the only one looking forward to Justified!?

    The best show on TV hands down.

    • Nope. I am too but I’ll probably dvr it and watch Person Of Interest live and watch Justified right after. Hate how two of them are in the same timeslot.

  15. wow

  16. For the UK site visitors still desperately trying to find UK premiere dates, or new season dates, go to:-

    The site does a pretty good job though not always accurate with all dates, but that’s a rarity and is more to do with UK channels watching viewing trends before finalizing dates.

    Hope this helps. At least you’ll know which UK channel bought the rights to the show you want to see and you contact them direct for more information.
