The upcoming fall season brings cold weather and quality television back into the lives of GSU students. Here are some top shows making their return to your television and computer screens this season.

“American Horror Story: Hotel”

The wait for season five of the ever popular, ever scandalous and ever strange television series premieres Oct. 7 with a killer cast. Yes, Even Peters is returning (tee-hee’s all around), but no, Jessica Lange is not returning (tear). One can’t complain too much though with Lady Gaga joining the cast, who’s perfect in every way for the strangeness and awesomeness of this show. As usual, the creators of AHS are keeping details of this season very hush-hush, but minute long teasers can be seen every once and a while on Facebook news streams or on TV. Pack your blanket and popcorn to check in Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 10 p.m. on FX.

“Fear the Walking Dead”

The new prequel to ‘The Walking Dead’ began Aug. 23 and is set in pre-apocalyptic Los Angeles. The series focuses on the struggles faced by the two main characters Madison Clark, a school counselor, and her boyfriend Travis Manawa, an English teacher at the same school. This series sounds pretty awesome in the fact that hopefully it can shed some light onto what began the spread of zombie-disease. Of course, the best part of this new series is that everyone will get their daily dose of walkers, even after a season of ‘The Walking Dead’ ends. Tune in every Sunday at 9 p.m. on AMC.

“Bob’s Burgers”

The simple, yet fantastic, animated series returns Sept. 27 with season six, “Alriiiight!” as Linda would say. The Belcher’s bring back cheesy burger jokes, brownie-chair-surprise’s, Tina-groans, and electric keyboard fart noises to Sunday television in 22 episodes. Unfortunately, season five is rumored to be added to Netflix sometime next year. The grill fires up Sunday, Sept. 27 at 7:30 p.m. on FOX.


Something for the comic-fans, DC comic’s ‘Arrow’ returns Oct. 7 with season four and apparently it’s going to be a huge game changer. No serious spoilers here, but expect changes in the team, the headquarters, new villains, and even in costume. Fancy. This season is suppose to be very exciting for the ‘Arrow’ fans, and we’re hoping to see season three on Netflix soon, the ending to season two was just too much… such a cliffhanger. Oliver Queen starts shooting his arrows once more on Wednesday, Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. on CW.

BONUS: “BoJack Horseman”

Half man, half horse and slight alcoholic BoJack returned to Netflix this past July. The snippy, yet quirky cartoon is a Netflix original which focuses on the problematic life of the 90’s TV star and his adventures in LA with Mr. Peanutbutter, Princess Carolyn, Diane Nguyen and Todd Chavez. It may look stupid, but give it a chance, everyone loves cartoons. Binge on Netflix and enjoy.
