This fall, more than 55 TV shows are returning with new seasons — many of them populated by new faces. And yes, there will be several notable absences as well.
To cite but a few examples: Once Upon a Time, Hawaii Five-0 and Chicago P.D. are saying goodbye to major players, Supergirl has acquired a new foe, a Riverdale rascal finally gets a face and Saturday Night Live says sayonara to three funny folk. Meanwhile, Arrow, Grey’s Anatomy and The Blacklist will welcome back some very familiar faces.
In this handy, alphabetized Ins & Outs gallery (click here for direct access), TVLine has sifted through every casting story published since the spring to deliver a handy primer on the new series regulars and guest stars (appearing in two or more episodes) that are joining returning faves this TV season, plus a spoiler-free refresher on those who have been left behind.
