The 15 Most Anticipated Returning Fall Shows

School's back in session at Las Encinas! Netflix

Clear your schedules, because it's almost time for the return of fall TV! While each brand new TV season ushers in a handful of brand new shows we can't watch to check out, there's something special about knowing all our old favorites are coming back, too. These are the shows we've already laughed and cried along with for multiple seasons, and once they're back on TV it's like catching up with an old friend. 

While some of these shows have already been on the air for a dozen seasons (or more!), some are still brand new to our queues. Fall TV also isn't just limited to broadcast channels, as we've got returning series from streaming sites, too, which means your favorite fall show could be over and done within a weekend. But then that just means you have more free time the next weekend to watch a new show. 

Take a look at the list of TV Time's top 15 most anticipated shows, and mark these return dates down on your calendar. 

15. The Simpsons (FOX) 9.29.19

Though it might now be part of the Disney family, don’t expect the Simpsons to change anytime soon

14. The Flash (The CW) 10.8.19

We might have seen Eobard Thawne defeated again, but we all know the speedster will be back to cause more chaos in Central City. 

13. Grey's Anatomy (ABC) 9.26.19

You’d think after 15 seasons we wouldn’t have any tears left to cry over the lives of our friends at Seattle Grace Hospital. Turns out, we still do.

12. Psycho-Pass (Fuji TV) 10.1.19

The Japanese cyberpunk anime series is heading into the third season following new police inspector Akane Tsunemori. 

11. South Park (Comedy Central) 9.25.19

Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman are never going to grow up and we wouldn't have it any other way. 

10. How to Get Away with Murder (ABC) - 9.26.19

We're excited to see how Annalise Keating might get away with murder one last time before the show wraps up its final season. 

9. The Good Place (NBC) - 9.26.19

It’s time to say goodbye to the Soul Squad because the fourth season of The Good Place will also be it's last. 

8. Riverdale (The CW) - 10.9.19

If you only need one reason to get excited about a new season of Riverdale, it should be this: They’re finally doing a Halloween episode this year!

7. The Walking Dead (AMC) - 10.6.19

Rick Grimes may be gone (for now), but The Walking Dead continues to live on with a new, tenth season!

6. My Hero Academia (NTV) - 10.12.19

In a world where people with superpowers Izuku dreams of one day becoming a Hero, despite not having any sort of power — aka "quirk" — himself.

5. American Horror Story - 9.18.19

For season nine of the love-running horror anthology series, we’re going back to cap in the year 1984 as a homage of slasher movies.

4. Titans (DC Universe) - 9.6.19

This coming-of-age story is set within the DC comic universe led by Dick Grayson, aka Nightwing.

3. The Crown (Netflix) - 11.17.19

New queen, same crown. Olivia Colman takes over for Claire Foy.

2. Rick and Morty (Adult Swim) - November 2019

If you’re worried about running out of Rick and Morty anytime soon, don’t worry. Adult Swim plans to make at least 70 more episodes of the series.

1. Elite (Netflix) - 9.6.19

Think, Netflix’s version of Spanish Gossip Girl, with a healthy dose of murder. Elite Season 2 can’t come fast enough.
