What New TV Shows Debuting Next Season Are You Looking Forward To? (Survey)

What New TV Shows Debuting Next Season Are You Looking Forward To? (Survey)

The fall TV season hasn’t arrived yet, but we at least now know what new shows got picked up (and those that weren’t), we’ve even seen some early looks at some of these new shows, so we have some idea of what to expect from a few of them.

Given that this is a blog that focuses on black media, we’ve highlighted most, if not all the upcoming new TV titles that feature black actors (especially those with black actors in prominent roles in the series they’re in), like Meagan Good’s Infamous on NBC, Andre Braugher in ABC’s The Last Resort, of course Gabrielle Union in Being Mary Jane on BET, and several others.

And with all that, here’s the survey question of the week: what new show (or shows) debuting next season are you most excited about seeing? 

I should add that they DO NOT have to be “black shows,” or shows with black people in starring or supporting roles. 

Dig in, while I go write up some stuff.

Although it's technically not a "fall season" show: Copper. Supporting cast: Black 1860s doctor and his black wife who is distrustful and anxious around white men (whaaa???!!!), lol. However, it does seem really weird to have BBC America do a show about post-civil war America. And a shame that they'll probably do a better job than anything the US can put together.


Infamous, Scandal and Merlin, thanks to Meagan Good, Kerry Washington and Angel Coulby.

It looks like there are some shows that are debuting this fall look pretty good. The few others I'm not too sure about. But what does look interesting is actress Megan Good in the NBC pilot "Infamous" for "NBC" that is something to look forward too. The other with actress Gabrielle Union in BET's new show "Being Mary Jane" by reading some articles this could be something that I would be interested in watching.


Infamous and Zero Hour (starring Carmen Ejogo).


I will check out Meagan Good's new show on NBC Infamous and I hope NBC promotes the hell out of the show. This could be the breakthrough of Meagan Good's career she is only the second black actress of headline a major network television show since the 1970s. The first was Kerry Washington on Scandal earlier this year.

I will also check out Gabrielle Union's new television show as well I hope it is also a success.

I'm most looking forward to the return of Up All Night, Don't Trust the B- in Apt. 23 and The X Factor. Up All Night is very funny and extremely underrated, and Maya Rudolph deserves an Emmy nod for her work on the show. I'll give Infamous a shot since I generally like Meagan Good as an actress.
