The fall season is a beautiful season that brings about many great things. The start of school, pumpkin spiced everything, Halloween, and new seasons of your favorite TV shows.
As college students, we are very familiar with binging a TV show only to get caught up and have to wait for the next season to get more. If you get as obsessed with your favorite shows as I do, then you know it’s a craving to get more. It’s more of a need than a want.
Well, as we enter the second week of September this time is upon us. Usually between the months of September and October is when all the major television networks begin the new seasons of their shows and I think this fall season we will have a nice line up. Let’s look at 14 of some of the most anticipated shows this season. Just as a warning, there will be season finale spoilers.
This show is entering its 13th season making it the longest running sci-fy show on air. This show is my particular guilty pleasure and season 12’s ending was mind blowing. Poor Sam and Dean Winchester are left alone, yet again to face another possibly world altering situation. With Crowley, Rowena, and Cas dead, and Mary lost in another dimension with Lucifer himself, what are the brothers supposed to do with the son of Lucifer on their own? Tune into the CW on Oct. 12 8pm (ET) to catch the season premiere.
2. "Criminal Minds"
This show is also entering its 13th season and let’s just say it’s been a roller coaster ride. With everything that happened to Reid last season and the team finally getting the evidence they needed to convince the courts that Reid did not commit murder and get him out of jail, it was very suspenseful. However, with notorious serial killer Mr. Scratch still on the loose it made the season finale that much more drastic. As the team rushes to Reid’s safe house, on a tip from former member Derek Morgan, their SUV’s are crashed into by a Semi. Will they all make it? Tune into CBS on Sept. 27 at 10/9 c.
This show is entering its 14th season, and let’s just say Shonda Rhimes is not afraid to break your heart. Last season ended with Edwards being held hostage at knife point then escaping only to be trapped in the hospital while it is on fire. The catch? She has a little girl with her. Ultimately, she makes the decision to quit, but that wasn’t the only shocker. Owen found out his Army MIA sister, Meg, who everyone believed to be dead for years was actually alive and this will have repercussions for Meredith’s relationship with Rigg’s, considering he was Meg’s fiancé. What will the fallout of everything be? Tune in to ABC on Sept. 28th.
4. "Once Upon A Time"
This show will be entering its 7th season. Last season ended with the final battle between Emma, Gideon and the Black fairy. After another curse is dropped and everyone loses their memories, including Emma, Henry has to restore them and when he finally does they all defeat the black fairy and returning Gideon to his infancy as well as resurrecting those who sacrificed themselves in this battle. The very ending saw an adult Henry faced with his young daughter whom he does not remember, almost paying homage to the show’s premiere with him and Emma. Tune in to ABC on Oct. 6th.
This show will be entering its 7th season as well. Last season ended with Chase kidnapping Oliver’s son, only for Oliver to find him leaving his team on Lian Yu.

8. "How To Get Away With Murder"
This show will enter its 4th season. Last season was a complete shocker as we found they killed Wes and that Laurel is now pregnant with his child.
