Let’s be honest, we were all just counting down the days until our favorite TV shows started airing again come Fall 2015. While some Summer shows did wow us (Mr. Robot, Suits), the whole TV line-up did miss having vigilante superheroes gracing our screens. Stop fretting though, as our favorite shows will be returning real soon, along with a few intriguing shows that could possibly pique our interest.
So without further ado, here are the Geekend Gladiators must watch TV series’ for Fall 2015.
Super-villains will take center stage in this season’s Gotham. Expect to see more stories on how Batman’s rogues came to be and less of the mob-scene villains as depicted in Season 1. If rumors are to be true, Gotham is also pushing Joker to the forefront in this season, while Bruce discovers the bat cave (?). Season 2 of Gotham returns on September 22, Philippine time.
THE BIG BANG THEORY
Its hard to believe that The Big Bang Theory will be airing its 9th season this year. Questions abound as to Leonard and Penny’s wedding, and the future of Sheldon and Amy or Shamy after that heartbreaking season ender. Also expect a Star Wars Force Awakens centric episode this season. The Big Bang Theory airs on 22 September, Philippine time.
Based on the movie starring Tom Cruise, Minority Report will debut on TV. And no, Tom Cruise will not be in it. However, the show will be a sequel to the transpired in the movie, to be exact 11 years after the movie where the Pre-Crime program has been discontinued. Starring Stark Sands and Meagan Good. Premieres on 22 September.
Another new show on our radar, Blindspot promises to be one of the most intriguing new shows to premiere this season. Starring Jamie Alexander, Blindspot’s plot revolves around Alexander, a mysterious woman who shows up in the middle of Times Square with no memory of why she was there only to find out that the tattoos on her body pertain to a giant conspiracy and the only way to get to the bottom of it is to follow the clues. Airs on 22 September.
Another TV show based on a previous movie, Limitless is somewhat a sequel to the 2011 movie starring Bradley Cooper. As with the movie, the show stars Jake McDorman who uses the super-drug to enhance his brain’s capabilities. Expect Bradley Cooper to pop-up in the show. Airs on 23 September.
Poised to remove the bad taste that Heroes left in our mouths, Heroes Reborn aims to recapture the magic of Heroes Season 1. Expect to see old and new faces in this iteration of Heroes. The series picks-up years after the events of Season 4 where Claire Bennett revealed the existence of heroes and the ensuing aftermath. Premieres on 25 September.
MARVEL’S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D.
Chloe Bennett will finally transition to the Inhuman Quake in this season’s AoS. With Marvel confirming that the Secret Warriors storyline is in store for Season 3, we can’t help but feel ecstatic about this upcoming season. Civil War will also take place during this season, and to say that we are curious as to how it plays out in AoS is an understatement. Airs on 30 September.
With the run away (pun intended) winner of 2014, The Flash aims to follow-up on its strong season 1 with this years installment. With Zoom as the main villain of our hero, things are about to be turned up a notch in this comic book series. Expect to see Wally West this season and a lot of crossovers come midseason as The CW prepare to launch DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. The Flash premieres on 07 October.
Coming-off of a so-so season by Arrow’s standards, Arrow is ready to bounce-back and get back to business in year 4. Oliver Queen returns to Starling City with a new costume and a new foe in Damien Darhk. An old ally returns to the land of the living (the former Black, now White, Canary), John Constantine debuts in the Arrow-verse, and a possible cameo from a certain Green… wait-for-it… Lantern. Catch Arrow on 08 October.
One of the more talked-about shows set to debut this season, Supergirl revolves around Krypton’s other survivor, Kara Zor-El. With the creators of Arrow and The Flash behind this iteration of Supergirl, expect the show to be a hit right of the bat. Based on the teasers and previews of Supergirl, expect a light take on the character akin to that of the Flash. Also, fans might possibly get a treat in a possible crossover between the Arrowverse and Supergirl, if all goes according to plan. Supergirl premieres on 27 October.
With Marvel’s Daredevil becoming a critical success for Marvel and Netflix, Jessica Jones is in the unenviable position of following it up. With very little details coming out on the direction of the show, expect it to be an origin story of sorts with a darker tone than that of Daredevil. The show’s premiere date will be announced soon.
