The 2024 Fall TV Shows You Need to Know AboutCourtesy of Hulu

Not too long ago, fall television used to mean something extra special. It’s when all of your favorite shows came back. Like, all of them. A show premiering in February or April was cause for a fandom meltdown, because it was a sign that the network was trying to bury it. Now, because of streaming and a hodge podge of other reasons, good television happens all year ‘round. However, that doesn’t mean that aren’t some special shows returning to us for a sweater weather welcome. These are the shows we’re looking forward to in fall 2024.

There are a lot of new shows, especially on cable networks, that we don’t know much about yet. We may have to wait and see what hits… or just wait for a trailer! And there are a few shows that are coming back this fall that we can’t wait for but don't have dates for yet, including: Abbott Elementary, 9-1-1, Ghosts, Elsbeth, Superman & Lois, The Golden Bachelor, Tracker, Bob's Burgers, Dancing with the Stars etc.

Until we get more information, these are the anticipated and/or returns from late August to November that have caught our eye.

Only Murders in the Building Season 4

Release date: August 27

It feels so rare to have a show that's A) this universally beloved B) renewed consistently C) out every year instead of every two or more years. I can't wait for the new season! You know we're going to be obsessed with the case and laughing our asses off as well.

The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power Season 2

Release date: August 29

Fall is kind of the perfect time for Rings of Power, because it has major cottagecore vibes. This show is a deep dive for Tolkien fans into the story of that dang ring Frodo was so desperate to chuck into a volcano. Although there's kind of the baddest bad guy of all lurking in the shadows, it's very earnest too.

The Penguin

Release date: September 8

This series is a spin-off of The Batman starring Robert Pattinson, though RPatz is unlikely to make an appearance. Instead, we've got Colin Farrell under an entire Sephora's worth of makeup and Cristina Millioti. It seems like less of a comic book show and more of a mafia show set in a comic book world, but that's fine by us.

Emily in Paris Season 4 Part 2

Release date: September 12

She's baaaaack. The first half of the season kicks off in August, and the second a month later. Is there a reason we'll need to cool off before Part 2? I can't wait to find out.

Agatha All Along

Release date: September 18

Remember WandaVision? I'm an MCU girlie through thick and thin, and I cannot friggin' wait for this show about Kathryn Hahn's chaotic character and her coven of witches, played by Aubrey Plaza, Joe Locke, Sasheer Zameta, and Patti LuPone.

The Walking Dead: Daryl Dixon – The Book of Carol

Release date: September 29

Okay, ignore the fact that this is thee most obnoxious title of all time. (It's just Daryl Dixon season 2! That's all it is! )Anyway, I enjoyed the first season of this spin-off, which is basically The Walking Dead meets Emily in Paris. It's cool to see what the familiar TWD zombie apocalypse looks like in another country. Some things are more relaxed, and others are way more intense...

Heartstopper Season 3

Release date: October 3

What I love about Heartstopper is that while the romance sometimes threatens to give you a toothache (it's soooo sweet) the show is not afraid to get real. It just happens to do so in an empathetic way. Shocking stuff, really!

Tomb Raider: The Legend of Lara Croft

Release date: October 10

Looking for a little animated action? This show might fill the Saturday Morning Cartoon-shaped hole in your life. Fun fact: it is a sequel to the 2018 video game, story-wise. I don't 100 percent know how that works, but I trust them.

Release date: November 10

Alert your local cow folk! The long-running series returns to finish out its final season after almost two years.

Outlander Season 7, Part 2

Release date: November 22

I knoooooooow, since this is so late in November it's basically winter television. But I'm excited! I admit it! Are you happy?? There's only one more season to go after this, so we've got to savor every last drop.
