Starring: Bruce Campbell as Ash!
Dear mom and dad: your kids are mutants in a world that throws rocks at the X-Men. RUN!!!
But seriously, there’s a lot of talent behind this FOX/Marvel Studios venture (Bryan Singer!!) and lots of classic X-people making their first live-action appearance. So, yes, we’re a little “X-cited.” Dangerously so.
Premier Date: October 2nd, 2017
Time: Saturday 9/8c
Starring: Stephen Moyer as Reed Strucker, Amy Acker as Kate Strucker, and 2 Strucker children who are very much the target of relentless Sentinel hunter-killers.
Supergirl Season 3
Supergirl rid National City of Queen Rhea and her Daxamite Army, but victory came with a cost: the sacrifice of her budding relationship with Mon-El! Never fear, Supergirl; the world-killing “Reign” should take your mind off the moody Mon-man.
Premier Date: October 9th, 2017
Time: Monday at 8/7c
Starring: Melissa Benoist as Supergirl.
The Flash Season 4
With Jay Garrick’s 11th-hour save, The Flash managed to defeat his angry future-self (aka Savitar). Now, we patiently await The Flash’s return from the Speed Force. Should we grab something to eat, or just kind of…hang out?
Premier Date: October 10, 2017
Time: Tuesday 8/7c
Starring: Grant Gustin as Barry Allen.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3
The Legends fractured time — like, for realsies this time — and inadvertently created “anachronisms.” Yes, they’ll return these time-displaced people, places, and things, but the Time Bureau might not allow them the autonomy to do so.
Premier Date: October 10th, 2017
Starring: Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer/ATOM.
Arrow Season 6
Just what in the HELL(!!) happened to Team Arrow after Adrian Chase blew up 75% of Lian Yu?? Will season 6 hold the answers, or will we learn the truth through a series of agonizing flashbacks peppering season 7??
Premier Date: October 12, 2017
Time: Thursday 8/7c
Starring: Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen.
The Walking Dead Season 8
If it wasn’t for The Kingdom’s last-minute save, we’re quite sure Rick would be nursing a stump. Thankfully, he’s whole and vengeful enough to kick some Savior @$$! Save that traitorous Eugene for me, Rick!
Premier Date: October 22nd, 2017
Time: Sunday 9/8c
Starring: Andrew Lincoln as Rick Grimes, Jeffrey Dean Morgan as Negan, Lucille as Lucille.
The Punisher Season 1
He’s beset with an extraordinary need to express overwhelming grief through excessive violence. And unfortunately, Daredevil’s too much of a hypocrite to extol the virtues of morality.
Premier Date: We’re thinking November 17th, 2017, but we’re not 100% on that. Not yet.
Starring: Jon Bernthal as The Punisher, Deborah Ann Woll as Karen Page, and a bunch of unlucky punks accepting gratuitous punishment.
Marvel’s Jessica Jones Season 2
After the whole “Defenders” thing, Jessica returns to her PI firm and resumes a familiar state of intoxicated self-loathing.
Premier Date: 2018
Starring: Krysten Ritter as Jessica Jones, Rachael Taylor as Trish Walker.
Marvel’s Luke Cage Season 2
Luke Cage continues to protect the streets of Harlem after his less than cordial tenure with The Defenders.

Cloak & Dagger
Two teenagers from very different backgrounds develop astonishing powers and an unbreakable bond. “Bond” meaning love. They fall in love.
Premier Date: 2018
Starring: Aubrey Joseph as Cloak and Olivia Holt as Dagger.
Marvel’s New Warriors
Six young ‘peeps’ with superpowers aren’t nearly as impressive as The Avengers, but they’re going to give superhero-ing a try regardless. Hilarity ensues.
Premier Date: 2018
Starring: Kate Comer as Deborah Fields (aka Debrii), Matthew Moy as Zack Smith (aka Microbe), Calum Worthy as Robbie Baldwin (aka Speedball), Jeremy Tardy as Dwayne Taylor (aka Night Thrasher), Derek Theler as Craig Hollis (aka Mister Immortal), and Milana Vayntrub as Doreen Green (aka The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl)!
LEGION Season 2
Well, that drama with the Shadow King was certainly — and aesthetically — enthralling. Now, if we can only figure out who concocted that person-snatching orb à la Phantasm.
Premier Date: Winter 2018
Episodes: Unknown. Presumably more than 8 and less than 1.4-billion.
Starring: Dan Stevens as David Haller.
