September. A time for hot drinks, pumpkin flavored anything and brand new television shows!

Those who still maintain to the ways of traditional television and are looking for a weekly ritual will be excited for the 2015 fall lineup. Here are some of the most anticipated shows of the season.

 

“The Muppets”

That’s right. The Muppets are back in an ‘adult’ setting. Playing off the filming style of hit shows like “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation,” this show will follow the Muppets around their work as well as personal lives that are sure to be filled with hilarity and drama. A 10 minute pitch pilot was released during a comic con at the beginning of 2015 and was released to the mass public in July. In it, we see the new lives of our beloved childhood, including Kermit’s new girlfriend, Denise, and Miss Piggy kissing Topher Grace, Eric Forman from “That’s 70s Show.” With a mix of nostalgia, hilarity and plenty of cameos, “The Muppets” is sure to be a hit.

When It Airs: Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on ABC.

 

“Scream Queens”

From the god of pop culture television, Ryan Murphy, comes a brand new slasher show: “Scream Queens.” We know that Murphy has unconventional ways of telling a story so it’s no wonder that this show is a mixture of “Mean Girls,” “Halloween,” “Scream” and any other slasher films you can think of along with an extremely recognizable and funny cast like the queen herself, Jamie Lee Curtis, Lea Michele, Nick Jonas and Emma Roberts. The show takes place in a less than welcoming sorority home where murder is a bit of problem. Dark and fun, “Scream Queens” is off to be another masterpiece by Murphy.

When It Airs: Tuesday, Sept. 22 at 8 p.m. on Fox (with a special two-hour premiere).

 

“Grandfathered”

Josh Peck and John Stamos grace our homes again with a more contemporary version of a family sitcom. Stamos plays the classic role of a successful and popular middle aged bachelor, a role that seems fitting, whose life is turned upside down after he learns that he’s not only a father, but a grandfather as well. With a superb cast like Paget Brewster from “Criminal Minds,” Cristina Milian from “Family Guy” and Ravi Patel from “Super Fun Night,” this coming of age comedy is on the must watch lists.

When It Airs: Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 8 p.m. on Fox.

 

“Blindspot”

Thrilling and electrifying, “Blindspot” follows a tattooed heroine named Jane Doe on her journey to regain her lost memories. While it sounds like a played out premise, the tattoos are not just for show. In fact, they are all part of a crime that has to be solved. The show is set up to be one of the best dramas to come to television.

When It Airs: Monday, Sept. 21 at 10 p.m. on NBC

 

“Supergirl”

With all of the superhero shows that have come out, a lot have been based around male characters. This October former Glee star Melissa Benoist comes back to television as Supergirl Kara Zor-El. Viewers can expect the same level of action that they’re used to with other superhero shows as well as a brilliant leading woman who adds a level of raw relatability that is appreciated by all.

When It Airs: Monday, Oct. 26 at 8:30 p.m. on CBS.
