Young Sheldon (CTV/CBS – September 24)

Bazinga!  A spin-off of the hit sitcom The Big Bang Theory, Young Sheldon follows nine-year-old Sheldon Cooper (Iain Armitage) as he discovers it isn’t easy growing up in East Texas with a once-in-a-generation mind capable of advanced mathematics and science.  Narrated by adult Sheldon (Jim Parsons), get to know your favourite savant before he turned cynical, controlling and discovered comic books.


The Good Doctor (CTV/ABC – September 25)

An adaption of a popular Korean drama of the same title, The Good Doctor explores the trials and tribulations of Dr. Shaun Murphy.  As a young, intelligent pediatric surgeon, Murphy navigates a new workplace and city while coping with autism.  Skeptical that his lack of communication skills will not impinge his work as a surgeon at a prestigious San Jose hospital, Dr. Murphy’s co-workers struggle to understand the everyday challenges he must overcome.


Will & Grace (Global/NBC – September 28)

More than a decade after their unforgettable eight-season run, 90’s sitcom Will & Grace is set to return to Thursday nights this fall.  With over 200 episodes and 16 Emmy awards already under their belt, the fabulous foursome of Will, Grace, Jack, and Karen are back to revive the series and reprise their iconic roles, along with original director James Burrows.  Get ready for a slew of razor-sharp jabs, and dirty martinis, with TV’s wittiest ensemble.


Valor (W Network/The CW – October 8)

Frankie Drake Mysteries (CBC – November 6)

Set in 1920s Toronto; follow the story of Frankie Drake, the city’s only female private detective.  A unique combination of history and contemporary themes, Frankie Drake Mysteries is a forward thinking drama about a woman ahead of her time.  Drake, played by Vancouverite Lauren Lee Smith (CSI), sets her sights on cases the police don’t want, or aren’t able to handle.  Using unorthodox techniques, things get complicated, as Drake’s brand of justice does not always follow the letter of the law.  From booze running to communists and union busters, Drake’s sense of adventure always seems to land her in trouble.


Empire (Fox – September 27)

Season 3 left off on a tragic note, with Empire Entertainment founder and antihero Lucious caught in a casino explosion, perpetrated by members of his own family.  Left without his memory and unsure who can be trusted, Lucious must rely on his caretaker (Demi Moore) to nurse him back to health and restore order to the Lyon family.  Expect drama, as Cookie struggles to keep family secrets private and adjust to a sudden and frustrating turn of events.   Plus, guest appearances from Vivica A. Fox and Forest Whitaker.


The Walking Dead (AMC – October 22)

The hit zombie epic returns this autumn, and with it will undoubtedly come several traumatic deaths as Rick Grimes’ pack begin to dwindle at the hand of Negan and The Saviors.  Will Alexandria, The Hilltop Colony, and The Kingdom join forces to help Rick and bring Negan’s reign of terror to an end?  Battles, reunions, and of course, time jumps look set to rock the eighth run of the popular AMC series.  Find out who wins on AMC – available in our UChoose store from as low as $1.50/month.
