Fall TV 2014: Your Handy Calendar of 99 Season and Series Premieres

Fall TV Schedule 2014Now is the time to start administering extra TLC to your DVR, because we’re about to drop on you nearly 100 season and series premiere dates for the fall.

Yes, it’s time for TVLine’s preternaturally handy calendar for the fall TV season, which quietly kicks off with Sons of Anarchy‘s farewell cycle and the three-part launch of Fox’s Utopia, gets absolutely ba-na-nas the week of Sept. 21 (with 41 premieres!) and on Sunday the 28th alone uncorks another nine shows.

RELATED Get TVLine’s First Impression of Gotham, The Flash, How to Get Away with Murder, Jane the Virgin and Other New Shows

Here is our round-up of September and October’s big premieres (and a smattering of significant finales), plus a cursory look at what November has in store. (The tinted box also reminds of midseason shows — a good way to save yourself from “Heavens to Betsy, where is Parks and Recreation?!” sorts of anxiety.)

New series are in BOLD. Click thumbnail, save the dates! (UPDATED 11/7)
Fall TV Schedule 2014
Preemptive P.S. My calendar-making skills have never been infallible, so if you spot something that is (theoretically) missing, drop a nice note in Comments and I will (possibly) include it in an update.

You can also view the broadcast networks’ Fall TV roll-out plans in detail at these links: ABCCBSFoxNBC and The CW.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

  2. Jim says:

    Any word on AHS: Freak Show yet? Also, the Scream series in development at MTV?

  3. Dave says:

    The Good Wife on 21 September should say “CBS)”

  4. torimelching says:

    Faking It season 2 is Sept 23rd correct?

    • torimelching says:

      Any news on the dates for Wilfred’s series finale, Rectify’s finale, Girl Meets World finale, Rizzoli & Isles midseason finale and Married finale? I know I am asking a lot Matt, Thanks for any answers.

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        Sorry, my primary objective above is premieres. TVLine’s daily What to Watch column is a journeyman when it comes to reminding of finales!

      • Rosa says:

        I would hope GMW isn’t ending anytime too soon since it’s barely just started. there’s only been, what 5 eps so far yet? they have holiday episodes to come and that will also bring more of the original cast back into the fold. I’m hoping someone else will show up soon/before then though, I’m getting kinda antsy about it! lol.

      • Brandy says:

        I think Wilfted series finale a couple weeks but could be wrong.R&I Midseason finale is Tues Sept 2.I thought I heard GMW finale was Fri Aug 29 but I could be wrong since according to Wiki ,season one has 21 episodes

      The new shows I`m most looking forward to are Outlander, Jane the Virgin and Strange Empire. Returning shows I am most looking forward to our Nashville, Revenge, The Originals and The 100.

      • Can’t wait for Outlander. The 100 was surprisingly good. I’m watching it on Hulu Plus because my local CW still isn’t HD. Apparently we are still living in 2004.

      • James says:

        TV guide has the Originals starting tomorrow 8/14 @ 9…?

      • Elise says:

        I am about to start season 2 of The 100! Im really proud it made it this far!

    • Former Peacock Lover says:

      Selfie looks stupid. The word “Selfie” is annoying and the show shouldn’t have used it as it’s name. It will be cancelled after 4 eps.

    • Renz says:

      Republic of Doyle starts up Wednesday, 15 October at 9:00. :-)

  6. Thanks Sooper Scoopers!

  7. MelindaB says:

    Nerd alert: I do this every fall for the shows I watch, and this will help me a lot. Thanks!

  8. Where is The Newsroom ?? I’m pretty sure it was supposed to air on mid July (I remember the 12th or so). What happened ?

  9. Sept 13 Deliverance Creek, Lifetime

  10. enuff said says:

    No date for the Haven premiere?

  11. Ryan says:

    When does the Newsroom season start?

  12. Fran says:

    Awesome as always! Thanks TVLine :)

  13. Lesley says:

    Any word on The Walking Dead?

  14. Tav says:

    Any idea when “The Fall” (Gillian Anderson, Jamie Dornan) season 2 premieres? Rumors are saying September but that seems awfully early for a show that had a turnaround of a year between filming and airing for the first season. Though if you could find out it would be much appreciated, thanks!

    • Simon Jester says:

      It’s supposed to premiere in the autumn on BBC Two, so sometime after that in the US. Filming wrapped in June.

      • Tav says:

        Great news, thanks. Has that been officially reported somewhere? I knew they wrapped filming recently and was just skeptical about the premiere date because season 1 filmed spring ’12 and didn’t air until spring ’13. But if they’ve got everything finished in time for an autumn premiere that’s fantastic.

  15. BostonRy says:

    Walking Dead?

  16. Drew says:

    What does it mean that The Biggest Loser is on there twice, Sept 11 and Oct 2? Change in episode length?

  17. DreamRose311 says:

    Is the Nov 22 Hell on Wheels date a season finale or a start of a second half of the season?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Hmm, indeed — that’s the Season 4B premiere. Will update at my leisure.

      • DreamRose311 says:

        Awesome, Thanks for all your wonderful calendar work. I think this is going to be my largest calendar file yet, going to have to start getting more picky about shows!

  18. Paul says:

    Big Brother Finale???

    • Nina says:

      Big Brother finale is Wednesday Sept 17th not sure the time at this point. Could be 8pm two hours or 9pm 2 hours or a 1 hour finale show.

  19. Ines says:

    I thought the Supernatural retrospective was before the season 10 premiere, not the day before. Either more Supernatural is always good :D

  20. Matt C. says:

    Thank you so much! I’ve been waiting patiently for this ever since the final announcement of premiere dates from the major networks. Though I’m still awaiting the premiere dates of The Walking Dead and AHS: Freak Show, this calendar will hold me over for the time being!

  21. Ken says:

    The Affair (Showtime) 10/19

  22. checkermate says:

    Did I just miss seeing Bates Motel?

    • torimelching says:

      I don’t watch the show. But I just read that they will start filming this fall and the plan is to air in March like the previous seasons.

  23. Benny says:

    How about the League? Any word on it yet?

  24. Baileigh says:

    Any word on when the USA Network wil air the final season of White Collar?

  25. TinLV says:

    Where is Revenge ?

  26. Nina says:

    Monday Sept 15th and Tuesday Sept 16th Dancing with the Stars Result show per Tom B twitter. Only those two days so far. The times are 8-9 pm both days.

  27. Benny says:

    I’m thinking it will be awhile before we hear about the Community premiere date, maybe something at comic-con?

    OUAT dia 28 no domingo xD

  29. JB Smooove says:

    What about an end date for Big Brother? Thats somewhere in the mix, i’d think.

  30. Ram510 says:

    I know it’s not in September, but it may be worth stating that Top Model starts back on August 22nd.

  31. Since says:

    Any word on when should we expect Community?

  32. Velocisexual says:

    Why does it give The Big Bang Theory premiere dates for both september 22st and October 30th?

    • Kira says:

      It’s a change of the day of the week on which it’s aired. BBT starts the season on Monday 9/22, then moves to Thursdays on 10/30.

      • Minerva Moser says:

        Thanks for straightening that out for me because it is the ONLY non-rerun show I care to watch. I was wondering how it could “premiere” on two different nights.

  33. chocolatfrog says:

    99! oh my! Good job and thanks for that schedule, have been doing mine for years now, so yours help alot!

  34. Jessica says:

    The Americans?

  35. Amber says:

    When is Legends starting up?

  36. Amber says:

    Also, not to knock your grammar skills, but it should be CSI: Cyber not CSI; Cyber – full colon, instead of semi-colon

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      Fear not, you’re not knocking my grammar skills but my typing skills. I’ll consider a fix.

  37. Balaji K says:

    Oct 4 – Survivor’s Remorse (Starz)?

    (Not that I’m looking forward to watch it. The trailer was bad).

  38. Sy says:

    Hi Matt! Excellent work as always.
    I just can’t find “Emerald city”, “Angie Tribeca” and “Veep” in mid-season…

  39. Amy says:

    Is there a premiere date for Mike and Molly?

  40. Amber says:

    Can we possibly get the calendar in a PDF-type document for ease of printing out?

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      No, I’m not fancy/”techy” that way. I make jpegs!

    • Dan says:

      I think this forum doesn’t do links, so remove the parenthesis. Here’s two versions in PDF, updated on Aug 12th:
      – portrait PDF (1 page): (www).filedropper.(com)/falltvpremierespdf-portrait
      – landscape PDF (2 pages): (www).filedropper.(com)/falltvpremierespdf-landscape

  41. Jen B says:

    I’m surprised that CSI is set to start on Sundays instead of the Wednesdays like it has been for the past few years. I’m not sure if that will work out too well with ratings.

  42. CUBuckeye says:

    Any word on the next Top Chef?

  43. jim says:

    was there an august calendar? I can’t find one.

  44. Mary says:

    Thanks, Matt, as usual you keep us in the game. Love the calendar!

  45. Sterling says:

    Past years’ calendars have been more printer friendly. No matter whether you put portrait or landscape Thurs – Sat is cut off.

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      I’m if anything friendly to printers. OK, what about NOW?

      • Sterling says:

        I had to save the image and print from a different program to get it correct. Printing from Chrome made it either too big or 1/4 of the page size.

        • Dan says:

          I can think of “adapt to page size” at the top of my mind. Whatever size it comes out, I guess it’s still readable. You can also save the image and put it into a DOC. You can also redimension it in the same proggie you use to open it.

  46. Judy Wright says:

    What about Dallas????

  47. Gregg Hutchison says:

    Is there any time frame for the return of Downton Abbey?

  48. Di says:

    What about The Mentalist??

  49. Claire says:

    Eff off Nashville writers. Srly. So done with this show.
