Now that the holidays are almost over and the New Year is nearly upon us, it’s time to take a look at all the TV coming our way in 2017. Winter is the perfect time for television to ramp up its offerings, giving everyone convenient excuses to keep out of the biting cold and snow to enjoy the new and returning shows in the offing from the broadcast and cable networks, as well as streaming services and premium channels.

The New Year kicks off with a bang, bringing Sherlock back for three all-new episodes that should make the welcome transition into 2017 all the more inviting. And the first week of the New Year remains strong, with the final season of Bones, plus new seasons of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and the irreverent Man Seeking Woman. Meanwhile, NBC readies its Tarsem Singh-directed take on the Wizard of Oz with Emerald City. It’s a hectic amount of television to get through in the first week alone, but as TV continues to add more and more scripted programs with each passing year we all become a little better at prioritizing our must-watches with the possible binge-watch at a later date.

Here’s what’s coming in 2017:

January

The Mick Series Premiere – 8 p.m. on FOX

Top Pick: Sherlock Season 4 Premiere – 9 p.m. on PBS

Sherlock Season 4 Holmes and Watson header Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Is this the final season or will there be more Benedict Cumberbatch-led adventures Sherlock Holmes sometime down the line? That seems to be the big question facing the series in what is its fourth season consisting of three ninety-minute episodes. But as the New Year’s Day premiere creeps ever closer, the notion of new mysteries fashioned from classic Holmes stories and the promise of a Sherlock/Watson/baby dynamic is enough to keep pressing thoughts of the series’ future at bay for a little while at least.

Top Pick: Taboo Series Premiere – 10 p.m. on FX

Taboo Banner Tom Hardy Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

If the idea of Tom Hardy teaming with his father Chips Hardy, Ridley Scott, and prolific screenwriter and filmmaker Steven Knight to tell the story of a 19th century shipping empire that also happens to be a tale dripping with vengeful intrigue doesn’t get your juices juicing then there’s no help for you. The trailers for the miniseries alone have been some of the most absorbing television of 2016, so the promise of an eight-episode adventure, complete with Hardy in a top hat and fur-lined coat promising to do “very foolish things” is all the convincing we need to sit down and watch.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4 Midseason Premiere – 10 p.m. on ABC

Top Pick: Baskets Season 2 Premiere – 10 p.m. on FX

Zach Galifianakis in Baskets Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Last season, Zach Galifianakis’ bizarre sad-clown comedy Baskets turned in yet another fine example of just how strong FX’s half-hour point of view shows are. More deliberately a comedy than, say, Atlanta, Better Things, or Louie, Baskets still manages to do what they do: defy the expectations of the label “half-hour comedy.” Helped out tremendously by his Emmy-winning co-star Louie Anderson (who plays Galifianakis’ mom, Mrs. Baskets) the series found its stride in the latter portion of season 1, making the promise of a second season all the more tempting.

Top Pick: Riverdale series premiere – 9 p.m. on The CW

The CW Riverdale Poster Archie Friends Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Archie is coming to TV but this time he has abs and his hometown of Riverdale is a much darker place than in the comics. This wild, Twin Peaks-esque interpretation of the Archie series is sure to ruffle some feathers of those devoted to the small-town charm of the long-running series, but so far The CW has teased something that should pique the curiosity of fans and newcomers alike. Don’t expect everyone to jump on board, but the conversations around the series will no doubt be something to behold.

Top Pick: Legion Series Premiere – 9 p.m. on FX

Legion FX Banner Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Fargo creator Noah Hawley has been handed the reins in FX’s foray into the world of Marvel’s merry mutants. This time, however, Hawley brings an entirely different flavor to the usual CGI-laden bombast of the X-Men’s big-screen adventures by introducing David Haller, a young man battling mental illness (or maybe not), who may also be the most powerful mutant on the planet. In addition to Hawley’s writing, the series boasts one of the more visually compelling aesthetics on television. If that isn’t enough to get you to tune in, then perhaps the supporting cast of Jean Smart, Aubrey Plaza, and Katie Aselton will do the trick.

Top Pick: Iron Fist Series Premiere – Netflix

Iron Fist Netlix Series Winter TV 2017 Premiere Dates: New & Returning Shows to Watch

Another Marvel Comics series for the Netflix crowd, Iron Fist promises to bring some martial arts action and mysticism to the otherwise gritty corner of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This will also be the last solo series to introduce a new character before the launch of The Defenders later on. So far, Netflix has scored with Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Luke Cage. Will the adventures of Danny Rand be another mark in the win column for Marvel and Netflix? We’ll find out in March.
