Rotten Tomatoes’ premiere dates calendar keeps track of the most anticipated new 2020 TV premieres and your favorite returning shows. Bookmark this page to get updates on network schedules, when the latest Netflix series launch, when Disney+ shows will premiere, what films and specials are coming your way, and more. 


Black Mirror’s Charlie Brooker and Annabel Jones have some parting shots for this awful year. Their Netflix special, aptly titled Death to 2020, premieres Dec. 27 and is a mockumentary featuring stars like Samuel L. Jackson, Lisa Kudrow, and Leslie Jones portraying fictional characters who discuss real events that happened over this very long and exhausting year.


The remaining episodes of the final season of Vikings will arrive on December 30. But, in a twist, they will premiere on Amazon Prime Video instead of original channel History, which will air them at a later date. The first 10 episodes of the season aired earlier this year on the cable channel and have a 100% Tomatometer score. Interestingly, sequel series Vikings: Valhalla, set 100 years after the events of the original series, is in development for Netflix by Vikings creator Michael Hirst and The Fugitive writer Jeb Stuart.


Can Diana Prince save Christmas? Warner Bros. has decided to release Wonder Woman 1984 on both HBO Max and in theaters on Christmas Day. The previous Wonder Woman movie, which was released in 2017, has a 93% Tomatometer score and is Certified Fresh.

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.

She’s back! Emmy- and Golden Globe-winning comedy The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is returning to Amazon for its second season on Wednesday, Dec. 5.

Season 2 will see Midge (Rachel Brosnahan) dealing with the fallout from her takedown of Sophie Lennon, making her climb up the comedy ladder even more challenging — especially since she’s still keeping her new career as a standup comedian a secret from her family.

ARCHIVE: January | February | March | April | May | June | July | August | September | October | November

Also: Renewed & Canceled | 2019 Premiere Dates

Even with over 20 new shows premiering in September (not to mention all the existing series returning with new seasons), we can’t blame you for wanting to binge whole seasons of tried-and-true TV. This month, we’ve pulled together a collection of shows for your bingeing pleasure, including some off-the-radar series, and a few biggies that you need to start right now if you want to catch up before they come back!


The Walking Dead: Season 1 (2010) 87%

What it is: A disparate group of people attempts to survive the zombie apocalypse; existential malaise and bloody mayhem ensues.

Why you should watch it: We’re not gonna lie: The Walking Dead has its share of dead patches and dull characters. But the basic setup is so compelling — how would you respond if the whole world went to hell? — that you’re likely to press on regardless. Plus, when it comes to creative zombie slaughter, this show can’t be beat — you get the feeling that every stabbing, every shooting, every beheading has been lovingly conceived and executed by some of the finest craftspeople in the business. Season six premieres on October 11, so you’d better start catching up now!

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Netflix, PlayStation, Vudu, and XBox.

Commitment: 69 hours.


American Horror Story: Murder House: Murder House (2011) 72%

What it is: American Horror Story is the show that kick-started the recent anthology trend, with shows like Fargo and American Crime picking up the cue. Each season of AHS is its own horror-themed storyline (a haunted house, a demonic asylum, a home-school for young witches, a carnival freak show, and finally, this year, a terrifying hotel), often using the same cast members in different roles.

Why you should watch it: Audiences who scare easily are terrified by it. The rest of us eat it up. The shocks keep coming; if you don’t like one twist, you know there will soon be another jaw-dropper around the corner! And the most intriguing new(ish) development is the unraveling of inter-season stories that are connected with each other (most evident so far in season four). Season five premieres on FX on Saturday, Oct. 7.

Where to watch: All four seasons are available on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation, Vudu, and on DVD and Blu-ray. The first three seasons are also available on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix.

Commitment: 55 hours.


How to Get Away With Murder: Season 1 (2015) 85%

What it is: Annalise Keating (Viola Davis) is a criminal defense attorney and professor teaching law students how to defend the accused, while tangling them up in a real-life murder mystery of their own.

Why you should watch it: Viola Davis’ Emmy-nominated performance, mixed with the twisty drama stylings of Shondaland Productions (Scandal, Grey’s Anatomy) will deliver a barrage of riveting mystery right into your lap. A darker tone than Grey’s and Scandal, HTGAWM has surprised audiences with its unrelenting, austere tone, permeated with intense character drama. With the premiere of its second season coming up on September 24, you should have enough time to run through season one before things heat up again.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, PlayStation, Vudu, and on DVD.

Commitment: 10.5 hours.


Bob's Burgers: Season 5 (2014) 100%

What it is: Bob and Linda Belcher run a restaurant with the help of children Tina, Gene, and Louise. Between the funeral home next door, a relentless health inspector, the children’s misadventures, and Bob‘s unreliable business strategies, the restaurant is always struggling to stay open.

Why you should watch it: Bob’s Burgers is a funny animated sitcom full of satirical and absurd situations that works both as a family and a workplace comedy. All the main characters have strong and quirky personalities, and you will quickly find yourself picking favorites. Even though the show received mixed reviews when it came out in 2011, it won critics’ praise over the time, and currently has two seasons at 100% on the Tomatometer. Season six premieres on September 27.

Where to watch: AmazonFox.com (five most recent episodes), Hulu (season five),  iTunesGoogle PlayNetflix (seasons one through four), PlayStationVudu, and Xbox.

Commitment: 33 hours.


PRISON BREAK

What it is: A man is framed by an organization known as “The Company” and sentenced to death for murdering the brother of the Vice President of the United States. His own brother then devises an elaborate plan to have himself thrown into the same prison in order to break them both out.

Why you should watch it: The show was nominated for several awards when it first premiered in 2005, including a Golden Globe for Best Television Series Drama, and is now enjoying a second life thanks to its popularity on Netflix. No matter how outrageous the plot in Prison Break, you can’t help but root for the siblings as they fight for their freedom in and out of prison over four seasons. Plus, Fox recently announced a forthcoming reboot, so now is the perfect time to lock yourself up with Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell.

Where to watch: All four seasons are available on Amazon, Google PlayiTunes, Netflix, and PlayStation, plus DVD and Blu-ray.

Commitment: 56 hours.


The League: Season 5 (2013) 71%

What it is: A Chicago-set ensemble comedy about five guys (Mark Duplass, Stephen Rannazzisi, Nick KrollPaul Scheer, and Jon Lajoie) and one gal (Katie Aselton) whose obsession with fantasy football begets hilarious trash-talk, outrageous deceit, and harebrained schemes.

Why you should watch it: In a lot of ways, The League is a throwback to ’90s network sitcoms about wacky friends — only it’s been updated with the raunchiness of an FX comedy. Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm alum Jeff Schaffer created The League along with his wife, Jackie Marcus Schaffer, so you can expect intricately woven — and often absurdly conceived — plots with heavily improvised interplay skewering pop culture, friendship, parenting, sex, religion, drugs, and, of course, insane football fandom.

Where to watch: All six seasons are available on Amazon Prime, Google Play, Hulu, iTunes, Netflix, PlayStationXbox, and Vudu; season seven premieres on FXX on September 9.

Commitment: 27 hours.


Homeland: Season 1 (2011) 100%

What it is: Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes), a bipolar CIA agent, works overtime to prevent a terrorist attacks on American soil.

Why you should watch it: If ever there was a series that consistently left you with your mouth agape in shock at the end — and sometimes, even in the middle — of each episode, this is it. Homeland is often unbearably tense, not just because of its national security plotlines, but also because of the personalities (and often opaque motives) of its characters, who are played with aplomb by Danes, Damian Lewis, Mandy Patinkin, and Rupert Friend. If you really put your mind to it, you might be able to get caught up before season five premieres on October 4.

Where to watch: Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Showtime Anytime, Vudu, and XBox.

Commitment: 48 hours.


Difficult People: Season 1 (2015) 88%

What it is: Difficult People is a new comedy on Hulu, executive produced by Amy Poehler. Julie Klausner and Billy Eichner star as struggling performers in New York who hate just about everyone, except each other.

Why you should watch it: Critics say the show succeeds in making the unlikable likable with mean-spirited, unhappy characters who can’t help but amuse. A talented supporting cast and an impressive array of guest spots and cameos keep the laughs up and the cringes to a minimum. Plus, Difficult People is Certified Fresh at 85 percent on the Tomatometer, and it’s airing right now.

Where to watch: Difficult People is available exclusively on Hulu.

Commitment: 2.5 hours currently (new episodes are available on Wednesdays), so not difficult at all.


Longmire: Season 1 (2012) 86%

What it is: Robert Taylor is gruff and gritty as Sheriff Walt Longmire, a complicated hero who dutifully fights the bad guys in big sky Wyoming, following the tradition of screen cowboys John Wayne and Clint Eastwood.

Why you should watch it: Blending case-of-the-week with a slow-burning multi-season arc, Longmire is the strong, silent type, thanks to fine acting from its leads — Taylor, whose character is coming to grips with his wife’s death; Katee Sackhoff as the mysterious deputy sheriff Vic Moretti; and Lou Diamond Phillips as Walt’s good friend Henry Standing Bear. Axed by A&E after three seasons (and a humdinger of a cliffhanger), Longmire will return for a fourth season on Netflix on Thursday, September 10.

Where to watch: The first three seasons are available on Amazon, Google Play, iTunes, Netflix, Vudu, and Xbox.

Commitment: 25 hours.


Supernatural: Season 10 (2014) 100%

What it is: Supernatural is a fantasy horror show on The CW that follows the Winchester brothers (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) as they battle vampires, werewolves, demons, ghosts and other monsters from the supernatural world.

Why you should watch it: The series enjoys an obsessive cult following, and the show seems to keep picking up speed like a 1967 Impala. Nine of its 10 seasons (all the ones that have a score) are Fresh on the Tomatometer, which is a credit to its consistency. Season 11 premieres on October 7, so if you binge like a bat out of hell, you might be able to catch up.

Where to watch: Seasons one through 10 are available on Amazon, Google Play, Hulu, Netflix, PlayStation, Vudu, and Xbox. Seasons one through nine are available in a DVD or Blu-ray box set, and season ten is on both DVD and Blu-ray.
