Fall TV Premiere Dates: October

by Shilo Adams 712 views0


abcWith the glut of fall premieres now in the books, it’s time for the second wave of fall broadcast series to make their debut. October will see some of the riskier and splashier concepts getting a chance to shine, ranging from Kevin Williamson drama Stalker to dating comedy A to Z and comic drama Constantine. In addition, the entire CW lineup will be premiering during the month of October for yet another year, as the move is designed to cut down on the number of repeats the serial-heavy network is forced to air.

This year, TVHackr is giving you monthly premiere dates for the warmest time of the year, with the primary focus being original on-going scripted and reality series. Not included are specials, awards ceremonies, miniseries, sporting events, and season/series finales, while notable scripted programming to bow during this time period includes Arrow spin-off The Flash, family comedy The McCarthys, and The Affair, which stars Dominic West and Ruth Wilson.

A full list of October season/series premieres with date, time, and network attached can be found below. A November list will be published in either late October or early November.
