Your mourning period is officially over. September is in full swing, and couch potatoes everywhere are soaking up the first wave of endorphins that accompanies the onset of the fall TV season.
To celebrate the most wonderful time of the year, TVLine has compiled a comprehensive rundown on 47 returning favorites — from Gossip Girl to Grey’s Anatomy, from How I Met Your Mother to Parks and Recreation — packed with exclusive scoop you won’t find anywhere else.
Which drama will kick off its season with a shocking death? Which one is building a one-time-only morgue set to finish off a spring cliffhanger? And which is saving the Grim Reaper’s appearance for November sweeps? Who’s mulling a vasectomy, and who’s definitely going to deliver a baby that some fans thought might be all foam and fury, signifying nothing? And what team of writers got inspired to put its leading man in the crosshairs of a “female sharpshooter under the influence of absinthe”?
