TV Calendar

Below you'll find a constantly-updated list of popular TV shows and the date they'll be premiering or returning to the US and UK. I hope you'll bookmark this page and refer back to it. If there are any corrections that need to be made, or you think another show needs to be included, e-mail me here.

Unscheduled, at present...

Autumn - THE FALL (BBC2) Series 2 of the crime thriller. Starring Gillian Anderson & Jamie Dornan.

Autumn - THE NEWSROOM (HBO/Sky Atlantic) Third and final season of the news-based drama. Starring Jeff Daniels.

Autumn - INTRUDERS (BBC2) Season 1 of the new US drama about a body-snatching secret society.

Autumn - SCORPION (ITV2) UK premiere of the new U.S drama about a team of genius geeks helping the government solve complex problems, and avert dangerous situations.

TBA - SENSE8 (Netflix) Sci-fi drama about a group of people who are psychically linked and hunted by a unknown agency. Co-created by the Wachowski siblings (The Matrix) and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5), let's hope that pedigree overcomes what doesn't feel very fresh as a one-sentence summary.

TBA - BACKSTROM (Fox) Adaptation of the popular Swedish books by Leif G.W Persson, about an irascible detective with a very bad attitude.

TBA - WAYWARD PINES (Fox/Fox UK) The worrying thing about this new drama is how it barely tries to disguise the debt it owes to Twin Peaks, with a Secret Service agent investigating the disappearance of two colleagues in a spooky small-town. M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense) is also involved and directs the pilot. On the plus side, this is apparently an "event series" and will conclude its story in 10 episodes. Starring Matt Dillon, Melissa Leo, Terrence Howard, Juliette Lewis, Hope Davis, Carla Gugino, Shannyn Sossamon & Toby Jones.
