Fall television preview of the good, the new and the departed

The month of September brings many things but one of the best things to come is the Fall TV Lineup.

Starting this week, television begins to turn away from boring re-runs and worn-out reality shows and onto the comedies and dramas we set our DVR’s for.

This fall brings the return of some fan favorite shows like “The Big Bang Theory” and “Supernatural,” while some new programs like the much anticipated “Gotham” and “A to Z” make their debut. We’ll also say goodbye to much beloved shows “Sons of Anarchy” and “Parks and Recreation.” Here’s a look at what’s to come this fall:

New Shows:

A to Z – Cristin Milioti plays Zelda, a young woman working in New York, who meets and starts a relationship with Andrew, played by “Mad Men” alum Ben Feldman. The show follows their love story from the moment they first meet until their final breakup, hence the title A to Z. You can keep up with Andrew and Zelda starting Thursday, Oct. 2 at 9:30 p.m. on NBC.

Gotham – This much anticipated television action/drama series is a prequel to the DC Comic Book character Batman’s prevalence in the title show city. The show focuses on the uprising of Detective and later Commissioner, James Gordon, played by James McKenzie of “The OC.” There’s also the origins of villains such as Penguin and The Joker. Catch it on FOX starting Monday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m.

Black-ish – In an age where cultural identity is more diverse than ever, Anthony Anderson created and stars in this heartfelt family comedy about establishing and finding traditions amongst his middle class African-American household. The legendary Laurence Fishbourne co-produces and stars in the show as well. Watch it on ABC starting Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 9:30 p.m.

Returning Shows

The Blacklist – The season one finale of NBC’s hit left us with more questions than answers leaving viewers heads spinning. This season we catch up a few months later and some unfamiliar faces making their first appearances but will it be their last? James Spader continues to keep viewers on their toes. Season two starts Monday, Sept. 22 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

Big Bang Theory – A longtime fan favorite sitcom about a group of socially awkward science engineers and their next door neighbor enters it’s eighth season with one burned down comic book store, two surprising romantic encounters and one engagement. The big twist: Sheldon Cooper, played by four time Emmy winner Jim Parsons, has disappeared. We’ll find out where Cooper went starting Monday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

Supernatural – The last time viewers saw The Winchester Brothers, Sam and Dean, one of them was not quite human, unto the other’s awareness. Season 10 of the cult favorite Sci-Fi show will once again put the hunting brothers through more trials than before. Early in the season viewers will get the show’s 200th episode, a milestone not many television shows reach. Catch Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles and Misha Collins starting Tuesday, Oct. 7 at 9 p.m. on The CW.

Finale Season Shows

Sons of Anarchy – In the final season of FX’s bike gang show, Jax Teller is hell bent on revenge for the murder of Tara. Rivalries are started and wars break out. No one is safe from having their blood shed and there’s no guarantee as to who will be left standing when the final credits roll. Watch the last season on FX starting Tuesday, Sept. 9 at 10 p.m.

Parks and Recreation – Yes the end is coming for the beloved government workers at Pawnee, Indiana’s local Parks and Recreation office. How to say goodbye in 12 episodes when viewers were only introduced to Amy and Ben’s triplets in a big time jump. What is to become of Andy Dwyer and April Ludgate? Does Donna Meagle finally settle down? How is Ron Swanson as a father? Where is DJ Roomba? There’s no official start date for the beloved comedy but NBC has stated it should debut sometime in the late fall or early winter premiere season.
