12. The Good Place

When it returns: The show kicks off its final season on Thursday, Sept. 26 at 9/8c on NBC.

Season it’s on: Yes, sadly this is the final season. It’s also the fourth season of the hit comedy.

Why watch it: Really, I should be asking why you’re not watching this show. The Good Place is more than just a comedy with a standout cast. It’s a series all about being a better person, character development, and friendship. Throughout the four seasons, we’ve watched as the group has gone from The Good Place, to The Bad Place, and everywhere in between.

If you’ve not caught up yet, the third season did just recently drop on Netflix. Make sure you binge-watch this weekend. You won’t regret it!

11. New Amsterdam

When it returns: The NBC medical drama returns on Tuesday, Sept. 24 at 10/9c.

Season it’s on: This is the youngest medical drama on the list, returning for its second season.

Why watch it: There are way too many reasons to list to make sure you check out the second season of this show. Let’s just start with the fact you need answers to that shocking Season 1 cliffhanger. We’ll find out who lived, who died, and who may or may not be back at the hospital.

New Amsterdam was one of NBC’s hottest new shows last year. It’s a series full of heart, with the medical elements connecting to the character development.
