US Fall Season 2015 premiere dates

2015-08-24_1546

We are now less than a month away until the start of the US Fall season, when new episodes of favourite shows become available once more.

Traditionally this is signalled by the Emmy Awards, which is later this year at September 20th. As you will see by this calendar, the big shows get going mostly after that date.

Australian networks have begun to indicate some shows will be getting fast-tracked here including Heroes Reborn, Quantico and The Player. Netflix titles such as Narcos (August 28) and Longmire, plus Doctor Who from the UK and our own Please Like Me are also confirmed.

The outlook should also be good for Foxtel titles such as The Flash, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Jane the Virgin (but are yet to be confirmed). GO! has been pretty prompt with Survivor in recent seasons too.

As usual most of these will be posted separately on TV Tonight for Australian premieres, plus listed in the site’s Calendar.

    • I list thousands of shows across the year and PLM season is yet to begin. I think if we’re going to constantly hate from behind anonymity then probably time to chill. Your displeasure in the show is noted for future reference, better to focus on the shows you enjoy.

  1. What a shame Nine/Go! Have dropped the ball with Arrow….they could have used Go! To show if fast tracked alongside it’s stable mates the Flash & Supergirl (shame they went to Foxtel). It could be more like Eleven & show a range of younger skewed programmes fast tracked along with Survivor. I would also love to see The Amazing Race fast tracked on Go! Rather than buried late at night weeks behind the US on 7Two or 7 Mate

    • The Amazing Race is co-produced by Touchstone Television (a Disney subsidiary) so it is staying with Seven, as the network has the output deal with Disney.

    • Nine never had the rights to Supergirl so how can they show it exclusively? Nine made more money selling The Flash to Foxtel than they would have showing it. Genre shows don’t rate enough to occupy a slot in primetime on a main channel, so only a handful of people watch them.

      The more likely approach would be showing them exclusively on Stan, for those who want to pay to watch them ASAP, then pick up non-exclusive rights for some later for Go!, for those who don’t want to pay to watch them. e.g what they look like doing with iZombie.

      The days of Network TV buying expensive exclusive rights to shows to show them for people to timeshift them is just about over. Seven has a few years left on their NBC deal so they are going to fast-track three October to ensure they win the year, but Aquarius screening exclusively on Presto, then later on Seven will likely be the more profitable…

  2. Unfortunately with a lot of these shows viewers will be forced to wait months for new episodes and some of these shows haven’t even aired or completed the previous season. As a free to air viewer seeing this less just makes me sad. 🙁

  3. Hi David,

    Just thought you should know there is an error with the September 24 date.

    “The Blacklist” season 3 has been pushed back to October 1 2015. Heroes: Reborn does start on September 24 with a two-hour premiere.

    Some great shows coming up. But some of them we’re still showing the previous season here or just finished it so God knows when we’ll get them. Saw the preview for Survivor the other day so getting excited about that. Lets hope 7 fast track Amazing Race this time, they’ve been a bit slack with the last couple of seasons.

  5. I was just watching a recording of The Middle from last week, and saw a promo confirming Survivor will be “hours after the U.S.”. It would be nice if Go! didn’t delay The Middle so much.

  6. Some great new shows and returning favourites there. Seven are really talking up the fasttracking this year, so hopefully we’ll see more of these sooner rather than later. Although they’re still a full season behind in Once Upon A Time.

    I hope Nine and Ten fasttrack their titles as well this year!
