Here is a breakdown of all the premieres coming this month. Yeah I’m 12 days late but most of the series have not started yet so you’ll be OK.

LOOSELY EXACTLY NICOLE (S1) – MTV (Comedy)
Semi-autobiographical series about comedienne Nicole Byer and living the Hollywood dream. Well, Hollywood adjacent – the deep valley to be precise – and it’s not so much a dream but a struggle. Nicole, exuding her special brand of confidence and irreverence, will demonstrate the hilarious missteps of what it means to be out on your own for the first time. With the help of her two besties, Veronica and Devin, Nicole will have to navigate the “real world” as she endures humiliating auditions, unpaid electric bills and the romantic battlefield that is Tinder, all while slowly, but surely, finding her voice as a comedian.
Empire’s Season 2 premiere date has been announced. The writers announced the show would return September 23rd for an 18-episode season. The new season will be a split one like many other shows have started to do with some episodes playing in the fall and the rest returning in the spring. If you haven’t watched the show or just want to rewatch before the new season starts, catch it on Hulu.
The CW always last on the schedule doesn’t have much coming this 2015-2016 season. They have had a pretty great year renewing everything except Hart of Dixie and The Messengers (which absolutely no one watched). They have picked up only 3 shows from their development slate, 1 for the Fall and 2 coming at midseason. I still think Super Girl (picked up for CBS) should be theirs but I’ll reserve judgment after I watch that pilot. They also moved a couple of their returning shows to new nights giving Julie Plec a night of her own with her shows, The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (which I thought should have been put together from the moment The Originals spinoff was a go but what do I know).
Fox released their Fall 2015 schedule today to advertisers and officially cancelled several shows. I get to watch these pilots this week so I’m excited. Check out what is coming your way and what to say goodbye to forever… maybe (Please save the Mindy Project, Hulu).
It’s upfront week. NBC (along with FOX) presented their new crop of shows today to advertisers. They released the new schedule and cancelled some favorites. Here is what was sent packing and what will be coming up in the Fall.
