All The 2015 TV Premiere Dates You Need To Know

The new year is bringing the return and debuts of some really fantastic television!

Posted on

It's been over a month since our favorite TV shows left us with painstaking cliffhangers (::cough, cough:: The Good Wife and How to Get Away With Murder ::cough, cough::), but the wait is finally over: Starting Jan. 4, TV is officially back!

Though this might also mean we're nearing the end of some of the most beloved series on television (Parenthood and Parks and Recreation), the good news is there's an array of highly anticipated new shows premiering (which are marked with asterisks below), from AMC's Breaking Bad spinoff Better Call Saul, to a (finally!) female-fronted Marvel story Marvel's Agent Carter, plus a few new late shows joining the ranks.

Since many of these new series were announced last May, here are some refreshers on ABC's, CBS's, NBC's, Fox's, and The CW's new shows coming this year.

Below, you'll find a chronological list of new show premiere dates; the return dates for your favorite network, cable, and premium cable scripted shows; the debut dates of some highly anticipated TV movies (like Lifetime's Whitney); and the big awards show air dates.

Happy viewing!
