If you’re making your list of what to watch this fall, you might have noticed you can choose from approximately 1,000 new series — OK, maybe not quite that many, but definitely even more shows than ever. That’s because in addition to all the network originals, there are even more streaming services coming (Disney+ and AppleTV+ hit this fall, not to mention HBO Max and Peacock in the spring).
It’s all a little overwhelming. How do you even choose? There are only so many hours in a day, so if you pick a show for each hour to watch live, you can catch up On Demand, on your DVR, or on the streaming service of your choice. To help you make those big decisions, we’ve organized the fall TV schedule day by day and in order of premiere date. We’ve included ongoing series and streaming launch dates in the calendar, but we haven’t included one-off specials or TV movies — check out our handy “Premiere Dates Calendar” to find out when those debut.

For Rotten Tomatoes’ annual Fall TV Survey, we asked thousands of our users what they’re most looking forward to in the coming TV season and to reflect on the best shows from seasons past.
We first asked TV fans which returning fall TV shows they were most looking forward to, allowing them more than one vote to spread the love around.
American Horror Story took the top spot with 25% of the vote. No. 2, the second season of Mindhunter, which has already launched on Netflix, got 24.31% of the vote, besting The Good Place (23.7%) by a hair.
Read on to find out all of Rotten Tomatoes users’ most anticipated returning series.
Disagree with the survey results? Tell us in the comments who you think should have made the list or have been ranked higher.
*No. 22 reflects write-in votes; a few of the top titles included The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Mr. Robot, Chicago P.D., A Million Little Things, and Blue Bloods. (Some titles confirmed return dates after our survey was conducted; others, like popular write-in Star Trek: Discovery, have yet to announce.)
Director, writer, and producer Patty Jenkins is the latest to sign with streaming giant Netflix. Speaking of… Ryan Murphy unveils a slew of Netflix projects he’s developing. Plus, the streamer announces Kevin James’ new comedy, and the 25th anniversary of Friends is giving fans around the world a chance to celebrate.

“I’m so excited to embark on a great journey of making the new world of television with a company and group of people I admire as much as Ted, Cindy, Channing, Peter and the team at Netflix,” Jenkins said in a statement. “I look forward to digging in to some great work together soon.”
Jenkins is currently working on Wonder Woman 1984, the sequel to her $820-million grossing 2017 superhero film.
“We’re thrilled to welcome Patty Jenkins to Netflix. Her trailblazing work has pushed boundaries and she confidently tells stories that leave an unforgettable mark. We look forward to fostering her many ideas and helping them come to life,” Netflix Vice President of Original Series Channing Dungey said in a statement.
The deal is valued at $10 million over three years, Variety reported.

In addition to the already announced One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest prequel Ratched, starring Sarah Paulson, and The Politician premiering September 27, Ryan Murphy told Time Magazine about seven more streaming shows he is producing for Netflix.
Murphy is adapting two Broadway musicals: A Chorus Line as a 10-episode series and The Prom as a feature starring Meryl Streep and Nicole Kidman. Ewan McGregor is set to star as fashion designer Halston in a Murphy miniseries, while Patti Lupone and Holland Taylor are slated for the sex industry drama Hollywood.
“Jessica Lange and I are working on a piece about Marlene Dietrich in Vegas in the early ’60s,” he told Time. “But I’m so booked. When am I going to do it? I don’t know.”
He’s also developing documentaries, including a 10-part Andy Warhol series and the film A Secret Love about an octogenarian couple coming out as lesbians.
WarnerMedia announced it would present a Snowpiercer panel at New York Comic Con, promising an exclusive sneak peek at the series starring Jennifer Connelly and Daveed Diggs and based on the 2014 film of the same name. Impractical Jokers, Tacoma FD, Full Frontal with Samantha Bee, and All Elite Wrestling are also coming to NYCC.
CBS will bring Star Treks Picard and Discovery, as well as Evil and Tell Me a Story, and The CW’s Nancy Drew and Charmed, according to Deadline.
Netflix announced it will preview season 3 of Big Mouth with Nick Kroll and season 2 of Lost in Space with the cast, plus the world premiere of their new series Daybreak.
Hulu, meanwhile, will present world premiere screenings and panels on Marvel’s Runaways season 3, J.J. Abrams and Stephen King’s Castle Rock season 2, and Reprisal’s first season.
Castle Rock is produced by Warner Bros. Television, which announced that it will also present Watchmen and Batwoman screenings with Q&As; Riverdale, Manifest, and Roswell, New Mexico video presentations with Q&As; a Harley Quinn screening; and the premiere of new footage from Black Lightning, Katy Keene, Legacies, Prodigal Son and Titans.

The sofa from Central Perk on Friends is going on a world tour to celebrate the landmark sitcom’s 25th anniversary. Wherever you are, the sofa will be there for you to take selfies with up to two of your closest friends, maybe four if you skooch together.
Complete tour dates here but some of the major destinations include the Grand Canyon; Empire State Building; London’s Tower Bridge, London Eye and Abby Road; Burj Khalifa in Dubai (the one Tom Cruise climbed in Mission: Impossible); Comic-Con Africa; and the Tribeca TV, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals.
The sofa appears in multiple places simultaneously, so is it possible some of those are not the actual screen- used sofa? Or can the Friends sofa fold space and time? It is magical, you know.

You can’t keep Kevin James off TV for too long. Kevin Can Wait ended in its third season last spring, so it only took James about a year to line up a new show. This time it’s for Netflix, for which he starred in True Memoirs of an International Assassin.
The Crew stars James as the crew chief in a NASCAR garage. It will still feel familiar to King of Queens fans because it will be a multi-camera situation comedy, James will face off against millennials who think technology can fix everything. NASCAR has two executive producers on the series too.
The Masked Singer released a promo revealing Thingamajig and Butterfly ahead of their sneak peek September 15 and season 2 premiere September 25. Thingamajic belts out Kacey Musgraves from inside that big green fur, and Butterfly rocks out to Jessie J/Ariana Grande/Nicki Minaj without letting those wings get in the way.

Adventures in Babysitting remake writer Tiffany Paulsen writes. Schitt’s Creek director Jerry Ciccoritti directs. You can see Turkey Drop during Freeform’s November “Kickoff to Christmas,”

Favorite guest stars Ron Cephas Jones and Phylicia Rashad also make appearances in the trailer.
FXX released the trailer for season 14 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
