22. 9-1-1

When it returns: This first responder series is returning at a new time but the same day. Check it out on Monday, Sept. 23 at 8/7c on FOX.

Season it’s on: Like fellow FOX series, The Resident, 9-1-1 is entering its third season during this primetime fall TV season.

Why watch it: What isn’t there to love about 9-1-1? The series focuses on the first responders and the amazing jobs they do. Whether it’s the firefighters, the police, or even the dispatchers, this is a series that pays homage to the scary but heroic situations they find themselves in.

This season will include a tsunami, which could put one of our own at risk of death.

21. This Is Us

When it returns: The NBC series returns on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 9/8c.

Season it’s on: This Is Us will premiere its fourth season next week. The show has been renewed through to Season 6.

Why watch it: There are plenty of reasons to tune into This Is Us, even if you haven’t been watching it from the very beginning. If you do need to catch up, though, Netflix is the place to turn.

The fourth season is going to see Jennifer Morrison join the cast, and we have plenty of questions about her role. There’s also an excellent amount of guest stars that make us doubly excited about the new season. Plus, who doesn’t love a fall TV series that allows you to cry and just let out the emotions when you need to.
