Even with the recent move to expand the beginning of the broadcast season into October, September is still one of the busiest months of the TV year. You have all five broadcast networks returning a majority of their schedules while cable is too big to completely get out of the way, meaning that there are plenty of projects to choose from if you’re not wholly beholden to the Big 5. 

It can be overwhelming trying to keep track of the depth and breadth that is fall TV, so KSiteTV is doing you a solid and compiling premiere dates. This is limited to scripted and unscripted originals on broadcast and cable, so no Netflix/Hulu/Amazon content will be found here, nor will you see any TV movies or one-off specials. It’s meant as something of a cheat sheet so that you can see what exactly is premiering when and whether there’s something coming out that you might not have heard about but might appeal to you.

Among the highlights of September TV are the returns of Gotham, Modern Family, and Blue Bloods, as well as the series premieres of The Orville, SEAL Team, and The Deuce.
