While gathering around the television as a family, friends, or a couple has become more of a rarity in the age of the internet and social media, Hollywood and production companies continue to produce great shows for us to watch—you just have to keep an eye out for them! Following different networks on Twitter is one way to keep up with upcoming shows, as are RSS feeds and blogs. But we decided to give you a heads up on some new television shows you might want to keep an eye out for when you’re planning your family couch time.
Coach was a popular 90′s sitcom that lasted 8 years and followed the adventures of Coach Hayden Fox as he lived life as both a partner in a relationship and a university football coach. Hayden Fox will come out of retirment to coach at an Ivy league school alongside his son in NBC’s revival of the show.
This 13 episode mini-series based in the same world as the popular Heroes series will follow new characters discovering their super powers. Stars from the original show, like Masi Oka, will return but you won’t see the majority of the original main characters. However, as of late mini-series have become the new way to pitch a show to an audience. We might just see a full season if the ratings are good–which is what happened with Marvel’s Agent Carter.
If you miss shows like ALIAS and 24, you might look forward to Minority Report. The show takes palce 10 years after the events in the movie, and this time the “pre cog”, or psychic, is a male with a female detective to help him try to navigate his abilities while still trying to live a normal life.
Shades of Blue
This show marks Jlo’s big return to TV since she was a dancer on In Living Color. Jennifer Lopez plays a cop that is forced to become an FBI informant when corruption is discovered in her unit. The television shows also features notable actors like Ray Liotta (Goodfellas) and Drea De Matteo (The Sopranos). Out of the large amount of new shows coming out this year, we think this one sounds the most promising, but the least kid-friendly.
You the Jury
Last but not least, we get yet another reality show. However, this time your vote could decide someone’s fate. You the Jury was created by Dick Wolf, the creator of the immensely popular Law & Order television series. The civil court cases will air live and the television audience will be the ones deciding the verdict.
Like we mentioned, these shows are just a few out of a very long lineup. Pick and choose which ones you will decide to watch with your family or your significant other. And, of course, if they turn out to be boring shows you will already be in the perfect spot for a nap—your sofa or sectional.
