Summer may not be officially over, but the 2015 Fall TV season is definitely underway. Networks are gearing up to make a big splash with new and returning series, beginning with the premiere of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and continuing through September, into October, and beyond.

Everything from Arrow to American Horror Story to Ash Vs. Evil Dead are bringing their A-game for a chance at those coveted viewer eyeballs – or at least a dedicated slot on your DVR. With the big four broadcast networks, AMC, The CW, FX, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, and more preparing an even broader array of scripted series than ever before, it’s easy to let some of the gems slip by in the deluge of content.

So take a look at the 2015 Fall Premiere Dates for New & Returning TV Shows and prepare to schedule your evenings and your DVRs accordingly:

Chris Geere and Aya Cash in Your The Worst Fall TV 2015 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Stephen Falk’s cynical but secretly sweet take on modern romance, starring Aya Cash and Chris Geere, was one of Screen Rant’s favorite shows last season. In addition to Cash and Geere, the show boasts a terrific supporting cast thanks to genuinely great performances from Desmin Borges and Kether Donahue. If you are looking for comedy with an edge and a sweet side, this is definitely the show for you.

Keep in mind, though, You’re the Worst has moved from FX to FXX; it will follow the final season of The League.

Top Pick: The Bastard Executioner Series Premiere – 10 p.m. on FX

The Bastard Executioner FX Fall TV 2015 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Even though Kurt Sutter parked the long-running biker drama Sons of Anarchy in the big motorcycle garage in the sky, he wasted no time in getting another series up and running for FX. This time, Sutter’s penchant for decorative violence and Shakespearean allusions will have a more period-appropriate home in The Bastard Executioner, a fittingly fierce series set during the early 14th century.

The series features plenty of faces familiar to Sutter’s previous show, like Katey Sagal and Timothy V. Murphy, but also former True Blood star Stephen Moyer and current Penny Dreadful supporting player Danny Sapani. For those still lamenting the end of SAMCRO, The Bastard Executioner may cure what ails you.

Taraji P Henson and Terrence Howard in Empire Season 2 Fall TV 2015 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

FOX’s soapy hip-hop industry drama was a ratings juggernaut last season, improving its viewership with each passing week. The series – starring Taraji P. Henson and Terrence Howard – now has a new tale of Lucious and Cookie Lyon to tell, and six additional episodes in which to do it, as FOX increased the season’s episode order from 12 to 18. With the promise of more family infighting and backstabbing, it’s time everyone got ready for another peek into the Lyon’s den.

Trevor Noah The Daily Show Fall TV 2015 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Jon Stewart may have said goodbye to the anchor desk he manned for the past 16 years, but The Daily Show will live on, albeit with another comedian behind the desk. After hitting a rough spot with regard to some touchy tweets he fired off, Trevor Noah will finally have the chance to demonstrate why he was chosen as Stewart’s successor.

So far, The Daily Show is selling a promise of consistency more than anything else. Noah has appeared in a few promos for the satirical newscast’s return, assuring audiences that although the host has changed, the show’s ability to send-up the lunacy of cable news certainly hasn’t.
