Fun fact: More than 83 of your favorite TV shows are returning in January; 39 shows in the first week alone. Zap2it has compiled a handy gallery with not only every premiere date of the winter, but with what you can expect when the shows come back.
From reality shows (the all-star cast with half “Dancing With the Stars” alums on “The Celebrity Apprentice”) to dramas (a new season of “Downton Abbey”) to animated hits (the always reliable “Simpsons”), your DVR will be working overtime in the beginning of 2015.
“Revenge,” “Sleepy Hollow” and “The 100” will deal with the deaths of major characters, a new “Bachelor” will try to find his soulmate, and another batch of kid chefs will make you feel bad about your own culinary abilities on “MasterChef Junior.”
There’s also the sure-to-be-emotional new installment of “The Challenge: Battle of the Exes II,” the return of HBO’s and Showtime’s Sunday night half-hour hits and the final season of TBS’s “Cougar Town.” We’ll find out whether major characters survived on “Chicago PD” and “Arrow,” and perhaps we’ll even learn the whereabouts of Olivia Pope on “Scandal.”
Take a look at the gallery below to find out when your shows come back, and what they’ll be tackling as they return.
The list has nearly every TV premiere on major networks and cable networks through the month of March, plus a look ahead at “Outlander,” “Orphan Black” and more shows returning in April and beyond.
