ATLANTA: SEPT 6 on FX
As if playing Tame Impala in the promo for this new series wasn't enough my all time favorite writer has a new series! Donald Glover AKA Childish Gambino has been busy working on his new series Atlanta on FX. It is centered around the main character played by Donald trying to get his cousin's rap career off the ground in Atlanta. The show is classified as a comedy-drama and I already know I'll like it. Fun Fact, Donald Glover used to write for 30rock and studied writing at NYU. It's going to be good.
AMERICAN HORROR STORY: SEPT 14 on FX
Another FX show that is now in its 6th season is ready to premier and they are being very tight lipped about the theme. Every season is distinct theme and story. The same actors appear but their characters are new each season. Throughout each season we have slowly discovered each season is intertwined, its almost like each season is an alternate universe or another time period that references past season characters or places. Ryan Murphy does a decent job with this show, but I will admit it isn't as great as the first couple seasons. I LOVED Coven but Hotel was not that great. I hated freak show. So far they are doing a great job at hiding what the real theme is for season 6, only unveiling a slew of teasers that link all past seasons in a small time frame. It was recently revealed of all the teasers released, ONE IS FAKE! So we still have no real clues into what this season will be about. I'll be tuning in since I bought into the hype, and yes...Lady Gaga will also be returning.
SCREAM QUEENS: SEPT 20 on FOX
Season one of Scream Queens was a great show to watch while mindlessly unwinding after work. Its more of a funny murder mystery and another show by Ryan Murphy. This season speeds up a bit after the Chanels (girls pictured above) have completed their time in the asylum and somehow decide to attend med school to be doctors. Former Dean Munsch also has changed careers and has decided to buy and run the hospital the Chanels are enrolled at. This all sounds absolutely ridiculous and the fact that John Stamos and Taylor Lautner are also playing doctors lets you know this is going to be crazy. I really just expect to laugh at this show, Chanel #1 has the best one liners.
HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER: SEPT 22 on ABC
Who is keeping up with the twists and turns of the Keating 5 in How to Get Away with Murder? Now that Frank has disappeared and they have now killed someone else, I am starting to wonder about how the 5 Law Students are going to keep their heads on straight. They already were on edge about killing Annalise's husband, so now with this second coverup I am expecting them to unravel a bit more. It is hard for them to trust eachother and they are all individually such complex characters I can't stop watching this just because the acting is sooooo good and the story lines are actually a bit unexpected. Annalise is always 10 steps ahead and somehow always knows everything. This is a show where I watch each episode a couple times and definitely re-watch the whole season when it ends. So many clues are presented that don't click until after and its fun spotting all their easter eggs. This is definitely a show I watch on Twitter because the #HTGAWM community is always on top of every detail.
The photo above is all you need to know why I am watching. WHO DOES NEGAN BASH WITH THIS CRAZY BAT LUCILLE? If you read the comics you have a hint but TWD often deviates from the comics. We are all waiting in suspense for the season to begin! This show is just very well written and the character development is probably the best on TV.
