Fall is quickly setting in upon us, which means all of your favorite shows are returning. With so many TV shows out there, let’s break down what should be on your watch list, and see where these shows left off last season. Obviously, SPOILER ALERT. Do not read if you haven’t caught up from last season.
So, after twelve seasons of entertaining us with their ghostly antics, the Winchester brothers are set to hang up their shotguns and salt at the end of their thirteenth season. While some of us may not be ready to see the series come to an end, no one can deny that the series finale will surely be a spectacle to behold. With season twelve ending with the death of some of the series major characters, we can only expect something equally heart-wrenching to put the series to bed.
Filming began mid July with the premiere date set on October 12, 2017 with the episode “Lost and Found”. Series regulars Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles), Castiel (Misha Collins), and Lucifer (Mark Pelligrino) are set to return for the premiere, as well as Mary (Samantha Smith), Jody (Kim Rhodes), Claire (Kathryn Love Newton), and a return from Missouri Moseley (Loretta Devine), a character that hasn’t been seen since season one.
Arrow, a universe building show for the CW network, returns for its sixth season. Last season saw the building of a new Team Arrow concluding with one of the best season finales we’ve seen from the series. We can only hope to see season six continue the trend upward after the lack luster finale from season four. With Stephen Amell himself saying that this season will focus on the theme of family, we can expect to see a lot of character development, but hopefully a little less of the “Olicity” drama that has plagued the last few seasons.
Series regulars Oliver (Stephen Amell), Diggle (David Ramsey), Thea (Willa Holland), Felicity (Emily Bett Rickards), Laurel (Katie Cassidy), and Quentin (Paul Blackthorne) are all set to return, as well as the likes of Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett), Curtis Holt (Echo Kellum), and Dinah Drake (Juliana Harkavy). The premiere date is set for October 12, 2017, moving it to a Thursday release from last season’s Wednesday night release.
While season three of The Flash, season four has the chance to change that mood. Hopefully, we don’t see the series fall into the same hole that Arrow did with the Iris/Barry relationship. It will be interesting to see what the gimmick for Harrison Wells will be this season. Series regulars Barry (Grant Gustin), Iris (Candice Patton), Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker), Cisco (Carlos Valdes), Wells (Tom Cavanagh), and Joe (Jesse L. Martin) are all set to return. Along with Wally West (Keiynan Lonsdale) and a surprise guest appearance by Danny Trejo as “Breacher”.
The main villain for this season will not be a speedster, but rather Clifford DeVoe, The Thinker (Neil Sanilands). The premiere takes place six months after the season 3 finale. Tom Felton will not be returning this season, so don’t expect to see Julian Albert. Season four will premiere October 10, 2017 on the CW.
Be sure to check back in Monday for Part Two. There’s so many more shows to come. Be sure to let me know in the comments which shows you’re looking forward to this Fall.
