Fall TV shows 2015 – 9 shows you MUST make time for

Nothing is going to get between me and my TV.

Fall TV shows are coming, and starting this month, there is so much geek awesomeness to look forward to. We’ve scoured the release schedules, the interwebs and consulted our resident telepaths, and come up with a list of 9 new and returning TV shows that you MUST make time for.

From androids to Supergirl to feudal warriors, fall TV has got them all. Here’s our list of the fall TV shows 2015 you must catch – release dates are current at the time of publication.

1Oct 6: The Flash – Season 2 (CW)

Barry’s back! When last we saw The Flash (Grant Gustin), he was racing into the vortex that threatened the space-time continuum and blah blah blah.

This time round, the Scarlet Speedster’s going to have a whole host of new allies, from Jay Garrick (Teddy Sears) to Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee) to a certain Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale).

And don’t forget – The Flash will also have a role to play in Legends of Tomorrow.

2Oct 6: iZombie – Season 2 (CW)

This was something of a surprise hit – the story of zombie medical examiner Liv Moore (Rose McIver) and her crime-fighting ways pressed all the right buttons comedically, complete with the occasional heart-wrenching moment.

In the new season, expect to see more of brains-dealing baddie Blaine Debeers (David Anders), especially now that he’s been cured of the zombie virus. Whatever happens, you can bet it will mess with your heads (see what I did there).

Watch: WarnerTV on StarHub TV Ch 515 on October 7, 9pm

3Oct 7: Arrow – Season 4

Olly’s (Stephen Amell) dreams of domestic bliss with Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards) finally come true – for all of 10 seconds. Enter criminal mastermind Damien Darhk (Neal McDounough), Star City’s newest baddie.

But don’t worry, Arrow‘s got plenty of back up. Colton Haynes’ Arsenal will definitely be returning, while Olly’s own sister Thea Queen (Willa Holland) takes up arms (or arrows, rather) as the Red Arrow. There’s also the small matter of a certain Diggle (David Ramsey), who may or may not be acquiring a green ring.

4Oct 11: The Walking Dead – Season 6

There was always going to be trouble in the little paradise we call Alexandria, from the very moment Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and his merry gang made their entrance. The walkers are literally waiting at the gates, and from the looks of the trailer, all hell is just waiting to break loose.

In the wake of Pete’s death, new characters like Paul ‘Jesus’ Monroe (Tom Payne) will be joining the show, while the long-awaited return of Morgan (Lennie James) is set to have a major impact on proceedings. Here’s hoping they get rid of Carl at last.

Watch: FOX on StarHub TV Ch 505 on October 12, 9pm

5Oct 16: The Knick – Season 2 (HBO)

The first season of The Knick raised eyebrows with its portrayal of Dr John Thackery’s (Clive Owen) controversial, yet pioneering, medical ways, racism, corruption and sexism, all taking place in a beautifully rendered 19th century New York.

Judging by the trailer, we can expect more of the same – not to mention the fact that Thackery’s now found a new drug of choice in heroin.

6Oct 26: Supergirl – Premiere (CBS)

Unless you don’t have any sort of interaction with the Interwebs at all, you’d know that the first episode of Supergirl leaked online loooong ago. So it’s just a little bit strange to be talking about the pilot episode as if no one has seen it.

To refresh your memory anyway – Kara Zor-El (Melissa Benoist), cousin to Superman, crash landed on Earth 24 years ago. Now, she’s ready to put on a costume and fight crime, y’all.

7Nov 16: Into The Badlands – Premiere

A warrior and his young protege journey through a American Civil War-like feudal landscape. No, it’s not Kung Fu: The Legend Continues. Instead, it’s headlined by Hong Kong actor Daniel Wu as the warrior Sunny (who looks very, very badass).

From a first glance at the trailer, it already looks like a more exciting Revolution (2012-14), even though the concept sounds like a mishmash of various dystopian scenarios. If nothing else, I’m rooting for it to succeed just because it has an Asian lead.

Watch: AMC on Singtel TV, Channel 322 | 11am (same day telecast: 11pm)

8Nov 20: Marvel’s Jessica Jones – Premiere (Netflix)

Now, this is something we’ve been looking forward to for a while, especially after the wonderful Daredevil. The latest of the Netflix adaptations of the Marvel properties, this one centres on (duh) Jessica Jones (Krysten Ritter) a former costumed hero who opens her own detective agency.

Judging by the teasers we’ve seen so far, Jessica’s going to be a very troubled, violent and socially awkward character – all the ingredients for success in your anti-hero franchise. Plus, don’t forget that Luke Cage a.k.a. Power Man (Mike Colter) and Purple Man (David Tennant) are also in the mix.

9Oct 5: Humans – Asia Premiere

“We have made them more than that.”

Think AI: Artificial Intelligence, Ash from Alien, I, Robot, Blade Runner – then imagine that androids have already become an integral part of human society.

The pitch for Humans doesn’t break a whole lot of new ground, and also sounds very similar to the cancelled Almost Human (2014). But it’s always fun to explore human-robot relations, and the British-American series, which has already aired in the UK, has also garnered very impressive ratings.
