NOVEMBER

“Shameless” (Season 8): With the way the Gallagher clan wrapped up season 7, we’d probably be fine without another season, but we’ll take it. Their mom, who popped in and out through the years and struggled with drug abuse and bipolar disorder, died; Lip decides to go back to college; Carl returns from military school; and Fiona is seemingly back on the responsibility track. The show returns Nov. 5 at 9 p.m.

“Search Party” (Season 2): How does a series about a missing woman return for round two? Dory (Alia Shawkat) and the group need some time to cope with the way the first “Search Party” ended, and so do we. The search continues Nov. 19 at 10 p.m. on TBS.

DECEMBER

“Easy” (Season 2): Aubrey Plaza and Kate Berlant are among the new cast members who will pop up in Netflix’s drama about couples (and singles) figuring out how to successfully fumble through modern relationships. The entire season will be available for streaming Dec. 1

“The Crown” (Season 2): Netflix’s period drama will return to the ‘60s with Michael C. Hall cast to play the late President John F. Kennedy and Jodi Balfour as first lady Jackie Kennedy. You’ll be able to stream the royal new season Dec. 8.

JANUARY 

"Divorce" (Season 2): A "Sex and the City 3" movie may not be happening, but SJP is returning to your TV screen for the second season of her HBO series. Her character, Frances, will start rebuilding and moving past that messy divorce from Robert (Thomas Haden Church) when the show premieres Jan. 14 at 10 p.m. 

“Crashing” (Season 2): Chances are high comedian Pete Holmes will still be struggling to score a stand-up spot at NYC’s The Boston Comedy Club in season 2. Hopefully, he’ll have his own couch to crash on this time. “Crashing” will premiere Jan. 14 at 10:30 p.m. after “Divorce.”

FEBRUARY 

"UnReal" (Season 3): Lifetime's "Bachelor"-esque drama series is ready for a new suitress (Caitlin FitzGerald). This time, Rachel Goldberg (Shiri Appleby) and Quinn King (Constance Zimmer) have to learn how to deal (er, manipulate) an "Everlasting" star who doesn't fall for their mind games. "UnReal" will premiere Feb. 26 at 10 p.m.
