What to Watch This Fall
Set Your DVRs for TV Primetime Premieres
Ok, so maybe you have to go back to school. Maybe you're experiencing a little post-vacation let-down. The end of summer can bring with it some mixed emotions but since the first days of network television there has always been one reliable constant of the fall season: new TV. When old friends come back into our lives and tie up the loose ends they left us with back in May, romances are rekindled, unsolved mysteries suddenly find a break in their case and babies are often born. All in September and October. And then there's the joy of finding a new favorite program to obsess over and chat about around the water cooler or spam our social feeds with. Yes, fall is good. Find out what's new and what's coming back and, most importantly, when this fall from Warner Bros. Television!
