This fall, more than four dozen TV shows will be returning with new seasons — many of them populated by new faces. There will also be some notable absences.
To cite but a few examples, Oscar winner Marisa Tomei will spice up Empire, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going to work on (and for?) The Good Wife, Michael Chiklis now wields a shield on Gotham and Arrow will find a new foe in Neal McDonough, while Castle, Sleepy Hollow and Criminal Minds are among the shows bidding cast adieu.
In this Fall TV Ins & Outs gallery, TVLine has sifted through every casting story published since May to deliver a handy primer on the new series regulars and guest stars (appearing in two or more episodes) joining returning faves this fall, plus a spoiler-free refresher on those who have been left behind.
