Inspired by Melissa de la Cruz’s New York Times best-selling novel, Witches of East End centers on the mysterious Beauchamp family: free-spirited artist Joanna (Ormond) and her two grown daughters, wild-child bartender Freya (Dewan Tatum) and shy librarian Ingrid (Boston), both of whom are unaware that they are gifted (and cursed) with a magical birthright. Freya is recently engaged to the man of her dreams, wealthy playboy Dash Gardiner (Winter), but when she finds herself inexplicably drawn to Dash’s troubled, enigmatic brother Killian (DiTomasso), bizarre occurrences begin to manifest in her life. Meanwhile, Joanna’s long-estranged sister Wendy (Amick) shows up with a warning that could change the Beauchamps’ fate forever, forcing Joanna to reveal to her daughters that they are, indeed, immortal witches who possess great untapped powers. With their idyllic small-town life now turned upside down, and a formidable and ancient enemy intent on ending the Beauchamp family line, will Freya and Ingrid be able to accept their true potential before it is too late?

Supernatural, season premiere at 9pm on The CW

– The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester Brothers continues with the ninth season of Supernatural on The CW. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent the last eight years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of the fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins), and the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard), the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil. Last season, the boys faced their most important mission yet: close the gates of Hell once and for all. With the help of the prophet Kevin Tran (Osric Chau), Sam and Dean set forth to perform the Trials required to close the gates. While the boys worked to shut Crowley and his minions down for good, a new threat to his reign emerged: the Knight of Hell, Abaddon (Alaina Huffman). As the struggle for Hell’s command began, Castiel set about his own set of Trials. With the aid of God’s scribe Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), Cass went on a mission to close the Gates of Heaven. However, he found out too late that the Scribe had nefarious intentions, and Cass paid the price. His Grace forcibly removed, Castiel watched as Metatron’s machinations came to fruition – and the angels of Heaven fell. Season Nine begins with the fallout from the angels’ descent to Earth. Sam and Dean are faced with a world inhabited by thousands of powerful beings who immediately begin to form their own agendas.

– After a violent shipwreck, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) was missing and presumed dead for five years before being discovered alive on a remote island in the Pacific. When he returns home to Starling City, his devoted mother Moira, much-beloved sister Thea, and best friend Tommy welcome him home, but they sense Oliver has been changed by his ordeal on the island. While Oliver hides the truth about the man he’s become, he desperately wants to make amends for the actions he took as the boy he was. Most particularly, he seeks reconciliation with his former girlfriend, Laurel Lance. As Oliver reconnects with those closest to him, he secretly creates the persona of Arrow – a vigilante – to right the wrongs of his family, fight the ills of society, and restore Starling City to its former glory. By day, Oliver plays the role of a wealthy, carefree and careless philanderer he used to be – flanked by his devoted chauffeur/bodyguard, John Diggle – while carefully concealing the secret identity he turns to under cover of darkness. However, Laurel’s father, Detective Quentin Lance, is determined to arrest the vigilante operating in his city. Meanwhile, Oliver’s own mother, Moira, knows much more about the deadly shipwreck than she has let on – and is more ruthless than he could ever imagine.

The Tomorrow People, series premiere at 9pm on The CW

– They are the next evolutionary leap of mankind, a generation of humans born with paranormal abilities — the Tomorrow People. Stephen Jameson (Robbie Amell, Revenge) stands at the crossroads between the world we know and the shifting world of the future. Up until a year ago, Stephen was a “normal” teenager — until he began hearing voices and teleporting in his sleep, never knowing where he might wake up. Now, Stephen’s issues have gone far beyond the usual teenage angst, and he is beginning to question his sanity. In desperation, Stephen decides to listen to one of the voices in his head, and it leads him to his first encounter with the Tomorrow People — John, Cara and Russell — a genetically advanced race with the abilities of telekinesis, teleportation and telepathic communication. The Tomorrow People are being hunted down by a paramilitary group of scientists known as Ultra. Led by Dr. Jedikiah Price, Ultra sees the Tomorrow People as a very real existential threat from a rival species, and the outcast group has been forced to hide out in an abandoned subway station just beneath the surface of the human world. Trading in secrets, Jedikiah offers Stephen the chance for a normal life with his family and best friend, Astrid, if he will help in the struggle to isolate and eradicate the Tomorrow People. On the other hand, Cara, John and Russell offer Stephen a different type of family and a home where he truly belongs. Unwilling to turn his back on humanity or the world of the Tomorrow People, Stephen sets out on his own path — a journey that could take him into the shadowy past to uncover the truth about his father’s mysterious disappearance, or into an unknown future with The Tomorrow People.

Raising Hope, season premiere at 8pm on FOX

– Entering its third season, Raising Hope is the critically acclaimed comedy from Emmy Award winner Greg Garcia (“My Name is Earl”) that follows the continuing comic adventures of the Chance family as they raise an adorable toddler named Hope (guest stars Baylie and Rylie Cregut). At 23, Jimmy (Lucas Neff) unexpectedly became a single parent. Now his life’s goal is to be the world’s best dad. Jimmy’s parents, Virginia (Emmy Award nominee Martha Plimpton) and Burt (Garret Dillahunt), who had Jimmy at the tender age of 15, don’t mind being back in the baby game. They made mistakes with Jimmy, but now with their granddaughter, they finally have the opportunity to get everything right. The Chances live with Jimmy’s erratic great-grandmother, Maw Maw (2011 Emmy Award nominee Cloris Leachman). Jimmy works at Howdy’s Supermarket, which gives him a good excuse to spend more time with his long sought-after girlfriend, SABRINA (Shannon Woodward), a sardonic checkout clerk who has become a constant in the Chance family. As Season Two came to a close, the Chance family learned that Hope’s serial killer mom, Lucy (guest star Bijou Phillips), had miraculously escaped capital punishment and was preparing to fight for custody of her daughter – that is, until a freak bus accident ended Lucy’s life once and for all (fingers crossed!). In the Season three premiere, Golden Globe Award winner Tippi Hedren and her real-life daughter, Academy Award nominee and Golden Globe Award winner Melanie Griffith, guest-star as Sabrina’s grandmother and mother, respectively. Also this season, a family member moves out of the house; Sabrina’s mom gets a new boyfriend (guest star Wilmer Valderrama); a fundraising competition turns the Chance family into mobsters; and the entire Chance clan celebrates an early Christmas before the world ends – according to the ancient Mayan calendar, that is – on Dec. 21, 2012.

In the season finale, viewers got a behind the scenes look as Giuliana and Bill viewed their baby’s ultrasound, giving them the news they have been waiting for – they are now in the “safe zone.” This season, we see the happy couple before their son Edward arrived to deprive them of all sleep and sanity. Furthermore, Giuliana has announced her decision to show the baby’s birth on the show this season.

Hart of Dixie, season premiere at 8pm on The CW

– Season two returns with fast-talking New Yorker Zoe Hart (Rachel Bilson), whose carefully planned life as a cardio-thoracic surgeon in New York City somehow went awry. Zoe is now officially a general practitioner in tiny BlueBell, Alabama, where the neighbors take care of one another, the mailman knows your name, there’s a parade every Tuesday…but the townsfolk still aren’t quite sure what to make of Dr. Zoe Hart. Yet she won’t let that discourage her from being the best GP in the country. Last season, arriving in quaint, picturesque Bluebell, Zoe warmed to town golden boy, George Tucker (Scott Porter), and clashed with Dr. Brick Breeland (Tim Matheson). Zoe’s presence will continue to cause friction with Brick’s daughter Lemon (Jaime King) — the sweet southern belle that struggles to keep things civil with Zoe, especially after George calls off his wedding with Lemon, and all of BlueBell blames Dr. Hart. Zoe lives in the guesthouse of her best friend and Bluebell’s mayor, Lavon Hayes (Cress Williams), her confidant and steadfast supporter. Next door, local bad-boy and mischievous charmer Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel) sparks a little fire within Zoe that leads to romance, despite the torch she carries for George.

Supernatural, season premiere at 9pm on The CW

– The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester Brothers continues with the eighth season of Supernatural on The CW. Twenty-seven years ago, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, “Watchmen”) raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent the last seven years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of both fallen-angel, Castiel (Misha Collins, “24”), and the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard), the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil. Last season, the boys encountered their worst enemy yet, Leviathan, a highly adaptable, seemingly unkillable foe that takes the form of billionaire Dick Roman. Roman’s plan is to turn the human race into a walking buffet for the Leviathan to feed on once the world has been taken over. Roman discovers the existence of a tablet that is the only source on how to kill the Leviathan and stops at nothing to get it. The Winchesters, along with Castiel, also discover the tablet and the young prophet, Kevin Tran (Osric Chau), who is the only one who can decipher the text. Using the tablet, the boys are able to beat the Leviathan, but after the blast, Dean and Castiel find themselves in Purgatory and Sam finds himself alone. Season Eight begins with Dean’s seemingly impossible escape from Purgatory, though Castiel is nowhere to be found.  However, Dean isn’t alone.  He’s returned with a mysterious comrade-in-arms whose reason for escape is perhaps more than Dean bargained for.  Meanwhile, Sam finds himself reconciling the life he discovered while Dean was gone with Dean’s sudden reappearance.  As the boys struggle with their unexpected reunion, they make a shocking discovery that could lead them on a deeply personal mission to settle old scores.  If only they could agree – is this a “family business” or isn’t it?.

30 Rock, season premiere at 8pm on NBC

– A fulfilling career. True love. Children. A supportive boss who’s good for a laugh despite being a Republican. Can’t a working woman have it all? The show seeks to answer that question definitively for women everywhere, but promises that for Tina Fey’s Liz Lemon, that resolution will be, as always, comically odd and outlandish. James Marsden’s hunky hot dog vendor Chris will be back as Liz’s beau, and two election-themed episodes are in the words. Jenna (Jane Krakowski) will be planning her wedding to Jenna impersonator Paul (Will Forte) with Liz as the (reluctant) maid of honor. Newly single Jack (Alec Baldwin) will juggle five different women at once while making a play for greater power within Kabletown. Executive producer Robert Carlock promises the 13-episode swan song will consist of great 30 Rock episodes, and not always weighted with end-of-series heaviness.

Jersey Shore, season premiere at 10pm on MTV

Seaside is home and to this Jersey Shore family, there’s no better place to bring up baby. But even with impending adulthood, you can’t tame this crew. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Medium, season premiere at 8pm on CBS

– The supernatural drama series is inspired by the real-life story of medium Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette), an extraordinary young wife and mother who, since childhood, has struggled to make sense of her dreams and visions of dead people. Dubois works as a consultant to District Attorney Manuel Devalos, using her psychic abilities to solve violent and horrifying crimes that baffle Phoenix police and others within the criminal justice system. Assisting her crime-solving endeavors is Detective Lee Scanlon, her longtime ally in the local police department. Meanwhile, at home, Dubois’ husband Joe, an aerospace engineer, is a supportive husband and father who is also busy launching his own scientific engineering company. Their daughters, Ariel, Bridgette and Marie all seem to have inherited their mother’s abilities to varying, expanding degrees. Entering it’s seventh season, the Dubois family will experience a lot of big changes as Ariel leaves home for Dartmouth, which prompts Allison to finish her own long-delayed law degree. This life change will bring Allison into contact with lots of new and interesting people, which will cause tension with Joe. Also this season, Scanlon’s recently deceased brother will wreak ghostly havoc on Allison.

Smallville, season premiere at 8pm on The CW

– The end of the beginning starts here.

We can look forward to a whole slew of favorite guest stars from past seasons coming back. Also this season, one huge Lois and Clark moment in the first eight episodes and a fulfilling wrap-up for Chloe. Exec producer Brian Peterson says the final chapter will find Clark facing the ghosts of his past so he can become the hero he’s destined to be.

The Good Guys, season premiere at 9pm on FOX

– It’s the ultimate guilty pleasure show, having aired it’s first season over the summer I was actually kinda sad when there were no more new episodes to air. Well, my guilty pleasure is back and I’m rejoicing! From Matt Nix, the creator of Burn Notice, comes this action comedy about a pair of extremely mismatched detectives who expose the big picture of small crime. Dan Stark (Bradley Whitford) used to be a big-shot detective in his glory days in the 70s. A stranger to modern police work who would much rather trust his old-school police instincts, Dan has the reputation as being a bit of a wild card able to skate by on the heroic deeds of his yesteryear. Jack Bailey (Colin Hanks) is Dan’s new partner. He’s been given the thankless task of babysitting Dan, the drunk pariah who can never keep partners for long. Jack may not see it, but he has little chance of getting out of his situation; his knack for making enemies at the station has assured he is not going anywhere. The show is very one-dimensional and there is zero depth to these characters, but it also a very enjoyable and easy-going.

CSI: NY, season premiere at 9pm on CBS

– It’s CSI but in New York, so that means the cases are completely different, right? Melina Kanakaredes, who plays Stella, has left the show and replacing her is Jo Danville (Sela Ward), a confident, professional Southern woman who enjoys family time and whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim. As for the season six cliffhanger when serial killer Shane shot at Danny, (SPOILER ALERT) well no one on the team has died.

Supernatural, season premiere at 9pm on The CW

– Returning for its sixth season, this haunting series follows Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers bound by tragedy and blood to their dangerous, other-worldly mission. This past season, Dean and Sam faced their toughest foe yet: the Devil himself. As the Apocalypse raged on around them, the brothers, aided only by a dwindling band of fellow hunters and rebel angel Castiel, sought a way to stop Lucifer and save the planet. Ultimately, they discovered a way to force Lucifer back into Hell and end the Apocalypse-but at tremendous cost: Sam’s life. Season 6 picks up one year after they averted the Apocalypse and there’s a big shocker in store: Sam is very much alive. What kind of monsters are they trying to kill this season? Exec producer Sera Gamble says they will be tackling vampires, werewolves, leprechauns and fairies. “All of those things that were on your Trapper Keeper in the third grade.”

Blue Bloods, season premiere at 10pm on CBS

– This new crime drama follows a multi-generational family of cops dedicated to New York City law enforcement. Frank Reagan (Tom Selleck) is the New York City Police Commissioner. He runs his department as diplomatically as he runs his family, even when dealing with the politics that plagued his unapologetically bold father, Henry, during his stint as Chief. A source of pride and concern for Frank is his eldest son Danny, a seasoned detective, family man, and Iraqi War vet who on occasion uses dubious tactics to solve cases. The sole Reagan woman in the family, Erin, is a N.Y. Assistant D.A. and newly single parent, who also serves as the legal compass for her siblings and father. Jamie is the youngest Reagan, fresh out of Harvard Law and the family’s “golden boy;” however, unable to deny the family tradition, Jamie decided to give up a lucrative future in law and is now a newly minted cop. Jamie’s life takes an abrupt turn when he’s asked to become part of a clandestine police investigation even his father knows nothing about, and one that could impact the family’s legacy. With Selleck as the leading man, it’s one of EW’s Top 5 Picks for new shows this season.
