"The Voice" (Season 15): Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson will be duking it out against resident judges Adam Levine and Blake Shelton for the best voice of season 15 when the competition series returns on NBC on Sept. 24 at 8 p.m.

“The Good Doctor” (Season 2): Dr. Aaron Glassman’s (Richard Schiff) journey to recovery after being diagnosed with a glioma will be a predicted plot dominator in the second season starring viewer-favorite Shaun Murphy (Freddie Highmore). The series returns to ABC Sept. 24 at 10 p.m.

“Young Sheldon” (Season 2): After an impressive first season — with nearly 15 million viewers per episode, according to CBS — the “Big Bang” spinoff is back this fall on Sept. 24 at 8:30 p.m.

"This Is Us" (Season 3): Your tearful Tuesdays with the Pearsons begin again this September. “There’s no you. There’s no me. There’s just US,” a video clip announcing NBC's new season teases. You’ll start getting answers to your cliffhanger questions starting Sept. 25 at 9 p.m.

“Survivor” (Season 27): Twenty castaways divided into two tribes will battle it out on the “David vs. Goliath”-themed season, a play on pinning those considered “underdogs” against the veterans. It’ll air on Sept. 26 at 8 p.m. on CBS.

“Star” (Season 3): After a season finale that left the lives of Carlotta (Queen Latifah), Alex (Ryan Destiny), Simone (Brittany O’Grady), Derek (Quincy Brown), Cotton (Amiyah Scott) and Cassie (Brandy Norwood) hanging by a thread, Fox promises to pick up with serious answers. The series timeline will flash forward three months when it returns. Season 3 premieres Sept. 26 at 9 p.m.

"The Good Place" (Season 3): Will Eleanor, Chidi, Jason and Tahani ever make it to the actual Good Place? The second season finale leads us to believe they won’t be making it to the coveted resting place just yet. ”The Good Place” returns to NBC on Sept. 27 at 8 p.m.

“Grey’s Anatomy” (Season 15): It’ll be hard to return to Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital without two of your favorites, but brewing romance drama involving Owen (Kevin McKidd) may just distract you. The two-hour season premiere on ABC drops Sept. 27 at 8 p.m.

“The Big Bang Theory” (Season 12): The series will come to an ending bang this fall, after lead Jim Parsons decided 12 years as Sheldon Cooper was enough. The CBS series returns Sept. 27 at 8 p.m., for its final season premiere.

“Law & Order: SVU” (Season 20): Benson (Mariska Hargitay) just might have more drama to face involving Sheila (Brooke Shields) this season. Showrunner Michael Chernuchin told TV Guide she might return, but “will go through some kind of personal problem.” “SVU” airs Sept. 27 at 9 p.m. on NBC.

“How to Get Away With Murder” (Season 5): Is Bonnie’s child alive? What’s up with the scratches on Laurel’s arms? In typical “How to Get Away” fashion, we’ll find out (slowly) this season. Watch Sept. 27 at 10 p.m. on ABC.

“Last Man Standing” (Season 7): The Tim Allen series was canceled by ABC and picked up by Fox soon thereafter. It’ll debut on its new network with a new cast member (Krista Marie Yu) and a potential pregnancy plotline. Catch it at 8 p.m. on Sept. 28.

“Blue Bloods” (Season 9): The Emmy-winning series about the inner workings of the NYPD returns Sept. 28 at 10 p.m. on CBS.

OCTOBER

"Superstore" (Season 4): Things were really steaming up between Jonah and Amy when we last left them at Cloud 9. But, there are no promises they’ll be an actual couple when the series returns Oct. 4 at 8 p.m.

“Station 19” (Season 2): The Seattle Fire Department was left in shambles at the end of the debut season’s finale, so the Shonda Rhimes series might return with some heartbreaking blows. One thing’s for sure, the second season has added actor Boris Kodjoe in a recurring role. It’s back on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m.

"Will & Grace" (Season 2): Eric McCormack, Debra Messing, Megan Mullally and Sean Hayes are staying put at NBC with another season of the “Will & Grace” revival hitting the network on Oct. 4 at 9 p.m. The sitcom has already been renewed for a third season, so you can expect to see your favorites in the fall of 2019, too.

“The Flash” (Season 5): Is Central City safe? Team Flash is back to protect against the city’s foes on Oct. 9 at 8 p.m.

“Riverdale” (Season 3): You have a few months to grasp that second season’s twist ending. “Riverdale” returns Oct. 10 at 8 p.m.

“Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (Season 4): Rebecca Bunch will have to come to terms with her Josh Chan-turned-Nathaniel Plimpton drama this fall. The series returns for its final season on Oct. 12 at 9 p.m.

“Splitting Up Together” (Season 2): Lena (Jenna Fischer) and Martin (Oliver Hudson) probably won’t get to the bottom of their relationship woes in the second season of the ABC series. But, it’s still worth sticking along for the ride. “Splitting Up Together,” now in production, returns Oct. 16 at 9:30 p.m.

NOVEMBER

“House of Cards” (season 6): The series returns for its final season this fall with Robin Wright in the spotlight, a move that was announced last winter following sexual harassment allegations against former lead Kevin Spacey. Catch “House of Cards” on Netflix Nov. 2.
