The popular teen drama from The CW is returning to our TVs this Fall for its third season, which is sure to be just as crazy as the first two. “Riverdale” is The CW’s loose adaptation of the famous Archie comics. It follows Archie Andrews and all his friends at Riverdale High, but it is not your normal high school show. It includes serial killers, mobsters, and of course hot romance. Riverdale could be a more put together at times, but if you aren’t tuned in you are going to be missing some of the most entertaining twists on TV.
2. This is Us
“This is Us” from NBC is my favorite show to premiere in the past five years. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into when I tuned into the first episode 2 years ago, but I did not think I would be crying by the end of every episode. “This is Us” follows the Pearson family and its three generations, the stars being the Pearson triplets (or The Big Three), and how they navigate life. On its third season now, “This is Us” is still as heart-wrenching and inspirational as its pilot. If you are in the mood for a good cry, you should definitely check out this tear jerker.
3. The Good Place
Also on its third season from NBC is a unique comedy “The Good Place”. The premise of “The Good Place” was what got me interested and has kept me watching since the first episode. The main character Eleanor has died and gone to ‘The Good Place’, but she isn’t who they think she is. The person they think she is has been sent to ‘The Bad Place’, where Eleanor actually belongs. The show is full of complex characters and teaches about being a good person, while also being incredibly funny. I promise this show is a wild ride and is worth a watch. And who wouldn’t want to watch a show with Kristen Bell?
4. Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
I have to admit, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” isn’t going to be for everyone. It is a show on its fourth and final season on The CW about Rebecca, a hot shot lawyer who just isn’t happy with her life, until she sees an old ex-boyfriend named Josh in the streets of New York. Rebecca quits her job and moves across the country to a small town in California where Josh lives to try to win him back. Not so crazy right? I’m joking, it’s bonkers, but that is the point, plus it tackles a lot of important issues. Why isn’t this for everyone you may ask? Well, it randomly breaks out in original musical numbers at least 3 times an episode, but if you are into that kind of thing (and even if you aren’t and just want to watch an amazing show) check it out. The music is hilarious and catchy along with the great show and it deserves.
5. American Horror Story: Apocalypse
If you have been on any social media since the sixth season of FX’s “American Horror Story” was announced, you probably heard that is going to be a crossover of the show’s first and third seasons. If you haven’t seen either of these seasons I highly recommend bingeing them on Netflix before you even think of catching up on Apocalypse. If you have seen Murder House and Cover, why aren’t you watching this season!? Three episodes in and we already know it is going to be epic. There are lots of connections and old friends returning to our TV screens in the setting of a worldwide apocalypse. Things are just starting to unravel, so getting caught up and tuning in every week should be a priority.
All of these show’s previous seasons can be found on Netflix or Hulu, so get caught up, and happy watching this Fall.
