Here are the shows that promise to be the biggest hits of fall.
American Horror Story: Cult
September 5 at 10:30 PM EST on FX
Bring on a new season of scary. What makes American Horror Story unique is that each season features a different storyline with different actors and actresses cast solely for that particular season. While the title of this season is Cult (not that you have to be in one to watch), there is way more to it than just that. Bees, killer clowns, and worst of all, the 2016 presidential election loom large in this fright fest, and Nicole Kidman stars. Is it possible that this AHS will be the best one yet?
September 25 at 8:30pm on CBS
This prequel series to the popular Big Bang Theory follows the life of nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper, boy genius. Jim Parsons, the same actor who plays Sheldon in the grown-up version of the show, narrates the series of his less mature self. If you think your home life is hectic and crazy, wait until you see what goes on in the Cooper household.

If you want to see a combination of Burn Notice and The Hurt Locker, The Brave sure to have you on the edge of your seat.

No, it’s not your online dating buddy you suddenly can’t get a hold of. It’s a paranormal comedy. If 21 Jump Street was set in a supernatural world, it might look like this. In this comedic-based detective series, Craig Robinson (The Office) and Adam Scott (Parks and Recreation) team up to investigate spooky doings and creepy creatures, putting a light-hearted twist on the genre.
October 11 at 9pm on CW
This reboot of the 1980’s classic TV drama just puts the “nasty” in “Dynasty.” It’s so steamy your TV screen might fog up. This take on the lifestyles of the rich and the famous will make you jealous, outraged, and most of all entertained, all at the same time. Meritocracy never sounded so appealing!

Margaret Atwood sure has hit it big on television. The Handmaid’s Tale, based on her 1985 novel, is swimming in Emmy Nominations. Now Alias Grace, a six-part miniseries, is set for release November 3 on Netflix. It tells the story of the most notorious convicted murderer—or murderess, as she prefers—in 1840s Upper Canada, and the criminal psychologist who investigates her case. Grace will undoubtedly be a classic TV character.
