Anyone who’s a fan of watching television should be excited about Fall 2014; viewers should get ready to surf some channels and get hooked on some new shows, as well as fall in love all over again with series’ new seasons.

Promising new series are scheduled to air all throughout September and October. Both Fox and CW have new series based on comic book worlds: “Gotham” and “The Flash,” based on the plots of Batman and Flash comics, respectively. “Gotham,” airing Sept. 22 at 7 p.m., revolves around future Gotham police commissioner Jim Gordon and his original story. “The Flash,” premiering Oct. 7 at 7 p.m., focuses on protagonist Barry Allen’s transformation into the fastest man alive after a lab explosion.

For those not interested in superhero action series, the History channel has recently premiered the new “Houdini” starring Adrien Brody. A new show which first aired Sept. 1 at 8 p.m., “Houdini” will chronicle the life of illusionist Harry Houdini. Those not interested in either genre may instead enjoy “A to Z,” a romantic comedy that narrates a couple’s relationship from its beginning to end. Starring Ben Feldman from “Mad Men” and Cristin Milioti from “How I Met Your Mother,” this new show airs Oct. 2 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

TV-lovers can also rekindle their love for their favorite shows, because some are making a comeback. The ever-popular “American Horry Story” is putting out a new season, subtitled as “Freak Show,” on Oct. 8 at 10 p.m. on FX. Much of the old cast will star again, this time in the setting of a carnival’s freak show. In the same horror and adventure genre, “Supernatural” is making its return to CW for its 10th season, airing Oct. 7 at 8 p.m. Two days before the new season premier for “Supernatural” is that of “Bob’s Burgers,” airing Oct. 5 at 6:30 p.m.

With this multitude of new and recurring television shows to be aired in the upcoming fall months, tv-watchers should reserve multiple hours of their time. From action to adventure, romance to comedy, or drama to horror, the Fall 2014 television line up is sure to please.
