The holidays are here and some of your shows got cancelled. Others have been in reruns for weeks and you are anxious for them to return. Well don’t fret people. You can find the dates of every single show’s return date as well as new shows that will be premiering this Winter on cable and broadcast networks here from Tvaholic and Entertainment Weekly. Shows return as early as the first day of the year, January 1st. Here are some of the ones I will be watching.
The Vampire Diaires has been at a 10 this season. Soooo deliciously great and so frustrating at the same time. If you aren’t caught up ****SPOILER ALERT**** Stephen gained some of his humanity back showing that he still cares about Damon and Elena but he’s done so much that I don’t know how they are gonna bring him back from where he is and on top of that he has now royally pissed Klaus off so that is gonna have some major consequences for everyone in Mystic Falls because as we know Klaus is insane. Damon and Elena might happen. I kind of want it to. I know that would make her a little like Katherine but Stephen has pissed me off a lot this season and I love Damon so much. Also Carolyn and Tyler broke up ughh. I can’t wait for its return. It’s gonna be awesome. Yeah its a little soap operaish but everyone I’ve turned on to this show LOVES it. It’s just plain wonderful. New episodes return Thursday, January 5 at 8/7c on the CW.
I have said enough about this show for a lifetime here and here. New episodes return Wednesday, January 4 at 10/9c on ABC.
Project Runway is back and this time with an all star edition. The show has been pretty stale the last couple of seasons have been pretty meh. So I’m excited that this season is the all star edition and a bunch of my faves are returning. I’m sad that they have new judges though and a new host and there is no Tim Gunn. How can there be a Project Runway without Tim Gunn? I happen to think that the life of the show is of course great designs and drama but the mentor relationship between Tim and the contestants. The new host is “supermodel,” Angela Lindvall and the judges are Isaac Mizrahi, Georgina Chapman, and Joanna Coles. The cast is ok. The only ones I have any interest in are Austin Scarlett, Anthony Williams and Mondo Guerra. Everyone else ehh. The new season begins Thursday, January 5 at 9/8c on Lifetime.
White Collar is one of my fave shows and I’m so excited about the second half of this season coming up. Part one ended with Peter’s wife, Elizabeth getting taken by Keller and Peter closing in on figuring out that Neal and Mozzie had the treasure that was stolen. Love this show. Matt Bomer is so great and I’m looking forward to seeing how the dynamic of Peter and Neal changes when the truth comes out about Neal lying to him. I really like that friendship so it should get really good. New episodes return Tuesday, January 17 at 9/8c on USA.
This show is a sequel to the John Grisham book of the same name. It’s set 10 years after the book and the movie and Josh Lucas (Sweet Home Alabama, J. Edgar) plays the main character Mitch McDeere. The family has been in witness protection since the events from the book and movie and have now come out . That’s when bad things start to happen for them. The show also stars Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as a shady lawyer. This looks like its gonna be pretty good. Hopefully it will be a hit for NBC because they need one desperately. It takes over the Thursday time slot the ill fated Prime Suspect inhabited. The show premieres Sunday, January 8 at 9/8c and moves to its actual time slot Thursday, January 12 at 10/9c on NBC.
