TV Preview: 2018 fall TV preview: ‘Murphy Brown,’ ‘The Rookie,’ ‘Charmed’ and more
It’s time to wipe the DVR slate clean and settle in for a new fall TV season. Sure, there are lots of things shiny and new coming soon to a screen near you, such as HBO’s adaptation of “My Brilliant Friend” and the new Doctor, Jodie Whittaker. But there are also a lot of familiar faces returning to prime time too. Including “Castle” star Nathan Fillion, who’s back on ABC (playing a real cop this time), and reboots (“Magnum P.I,” Charmed”) and revivals (welcome back, Murphy Brown) galore. Get an in-depth look at all of the most anticipated series in The Times’ 2018 Fall TV Preview.
It’s no coincidence we’re witnessing the fall of CBS Chief Executive Les Moonves and the resurrection of the network’s groundbreaking “Murphy Brown” in the same month.
If there’s one truism in this era of too much television, it’s this: Old TV shows never die — they simply get rebooted (or revived).
As a young boy growing up in Canada, Nathan Fillion spent many a day playing cops and robbers with his older brother.
The living room set of CBS’ “The Neighborhood” has a distinctly African American vibe — there’s an Obama commemorative plate and black art on the wall.
No other new TV show this fall has a title that feels quite as timely as NBC’s “I Feel Bad.”
Starring a quartet of seasoned comedy veterans in David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, Vicki Lawrence and Leslie Jordan, the new Fox comedy “The Cool Kids” raised a few eyebrows as it entered this fall’s lineup.
With the fall promising its usual deluge of new choices here are a few faces — some familiar, others less so — who could be on the cusp of a breakout.
Possibly you have been too busy catching up with the summer’s new series, or even the previous summer’s new series, to have given much thought to the waves of new fall shows about to crash down upon the shores of your viewing time.
UNDERRATED The return of ‘Big Mouth’: Arriving with a second season on Oct. 5, this animated series has flown under the radar amid Netflix’s usual avalanche of content, but its comic credentials are solid with voices from Nick Kroll, John Mulaney, Jessi Klein and Jordan Peele telling twisted but also reliably smart and funny stories of the horrors of puberty.
