I’m so excited for all of my fall TV shows to come back this fall! I can’t even tell you how psyched I am! That being said, there are a few which I think are the best fall TV shows that you’ll want to catch up on before the new seasons begin and tune in when they finally come back (most are premiering in late September or October, depending).
3 Fall TV Shows You Need to Watch!
American Horror Story
Oh my gosh! Words cannot really describe how much I love the American Horror Story seasons. They’re all completely independent stories from each other so you can watch any season in any order and you won’t be confused as they are all totally different stories with different characters.
The first season was all haunted houses and featured murders and haunting that happened in the LA area (and maybe other places) which was historically accurate, but fictionalized, of course. The first season was, in my opinion, the most terrifying. The second season took place almost entirely in an Asylum during the 40s-60s, but also featured aliens and nazis oddly enough.
The third season focuses on New Orleans and their voodoo and witchcraft lore and legends, featuring some characters that are based on real life historical people from New Orleans during that time. The upcoming season is aptly named Freak Show and will follow a “freak show circus” featuring anyone from a bearded lady to a 3 legged acrobat, ventriloquist, 2 headed woman and more.
Obviously, the story is meant to be frightening and will show some of scarier parts of the show. If you enjoy horror, you will definitely enjoy this show! It’s truly scary, but the stories are always so well crafted and cleverly written and the actors, many of which play different parts in each season, are truly amazing. They’re definitely worth watching. I did a halloween costume idea for last season of AHS, if you’re curious 🙂
Next up is NBC’s Grimm. Now in it’s 4th season, this one will take a bit of catching up, but it’s well worth the watch! The basic story is that Nick is a police detective who finds out that he is a Grimm – a hunter of Wesen (pronounced Veh-sehn) or magical creatures (basically the ones from all fairy tales, myths, and folk legends. There is a whole lot to it, but the format of the show is a lot like a crime show similar to CSI. Each week, at least in the beginning, features a new Wesen creature mystery to solve and many of them become entwined with Nick’s life as the story goes on.
Last, but certainly not least is season 2 of Sleepy Hollow! I LOVE THIS SHOW!! It is such a fantastic show and it’s one of those shows, again, that weaves real life American history into it’s story. It features a load of conspiracies, biblical and American revolutionary references, as well as references to the Free Masons.
It’s such a fascinating and well-written show and the costumes are incredible. The monsters in this show are absolutely terrifying and the story, which is about faith in others and oneself (and God), is totally riveting. I can’t recommend it enough. Also, the political undertones and humor of this show make it one of a kind. You can read more about my love for this show in a post I did on season one – here.
