Last week we highlighted some of the new TV shows that will be filling your prime-time TV guide this fall. So, we thought it only appropriate to highlight some of the much-loved shows that will also be returning this fall. Here is a little recap from TV Guide on where some of your favorite shows left off and where they are headed this season. We have also created a helpful calendar on to help you remember when your favorite shows will be premiering. And remember you can always catch your favorite shows anytime, anywhere with ImOn TV Everywhere.



(ImOn Channels 9, HD 809, & Manual Tune 16.5 or 809.0)


-The Goldbergs

Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 7:00pm

Where We Left Off: Adam survived Freshman Fear Week and graduated from eighth grade. Erica finally realized she had feelings for Geoff Schwartz, but it was too late, as he moved on to someone else. Beverly decided to get her teaching certificate so she could be with all three of her schmoopies in high school.

What's Next: Season 4 kicks off with a tribute to The Breakfast Club. Barry, Adam, and Erica will be stuck in detention on a Saturday. The fourth season will focus on changes, transitions, and new identities, as Adam acclimates to high school and Erica prepares to graduate. And will Bev earn her teaching certificate? Everyone's favorite smother knows how to get what she wants.

-Modern Family

Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8:00pm

Where We Left Off: Claire and Jay were both struggling to adjust to Jay's return to work at the closet company he founded. Haley's boyfriend Andy moved back to Utah, but they're going to try a long-distance relationship. Mitchell and Cam spent the summer in Missouri, while Jay's family went to Mexico for a wedding and the Dunphys vacationed in New York.

What's Next: The family reunites in the Season 8 premiere for Father's Day. Then things get even more complicated at work for Claire and Jay. Gloria's hot sauce business starts to take off, while Phil develops some new hobbies. Manny and Luke are going on college visits, and Alex experiences the time-honored college tradition of mononucleosis.

-Grey's Anatomy

Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7:00pm

Where We Left Off: Amelia and Owen tied the knot and April gave birth to her and Jackson's baby. Jo confessed to DeLuca that the reason she can't marry Alex is because she's already married, and changed her name to escape from her abusive husband. Alex walked in on Jo and DeLuca in a very compromising position, and before Jo could explain, Alex started beating DeLuca. Arizona gave Callie her blessing for Callie to take Sofia to New York so she can be with Penny. Meredith and Riggs realized they have a connection that goes deeper than just sex, but an unwitting Maggie told Meredith that she has feelings for Riggs, and believes they're reciprocated.

What's Next: The season premiere will mainly deal with the intense fallout from Alex beating up DeLuca, which causes some friction among the doctors. Season 13 will primarily focus on the original characters of Meredith, Alex, Bailey and Richard. The Meredith-Riggs-Maggie dynamic will cause problems for the sisters. Amelia and Owen will find themselves navigating the ups and downs of married life, while Alex and Jo find their relationship upended after Jo's dishonesty and Alex's violent impulses. It remains to be seen whether Callie will get a proper sendoff, given Sara Ramirez's departure from the show, as well as whether Jackson and April's co-parenting will reunite them as a couple.

-How to Get Away with Murder

Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9:00pm

Where We Left Off: Frank went on the lam after Annalise learned his dirty secret: 10 years ago, he had bugged her room during the Wallace Mahoney case, which led to her car being T-boned and losing her near-term baby. Caleb was the one behind the Hapstalls' murders and committed suicide before he could be arrested. Oliver declined and deleted Connor's acceptance into Stanford, while Asher and Michaela hooked up. Wes approached Wallace, his biological father, but someone shot Wallace dead before Wes could say much.

What's Next: Frank is alive, but how he attempts to win back Annalise's good graces will be his quest on Season 3. Wallace’s murder is definitely going to be a central focus of the new season. Season 3 will also explore more of Laurel's and Michaela's backstories.


(ImOn Channels 7, HD 807, and Manual Tune 17.4 & 807.0)

-Law & Order: SVU

Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 21 at 8:00pm

Where We Left Off: When Dodds and Benson went to help a suspect's wife and kids move out, Dodds got fatally shot by the husband. Olivia Benson blamed herself for his death, so her boyfriend, Ed Tucker, suggested they go away to Paris together. ADA Rafael Barba revealed that he'd been receiving death threats for months, specifically after he indicted the three cops who shot Terrence Reynolds, an unarmed black man.

What's Next: With Warren Leight gone, Rick Eid will step up as showrunner for the long-running procedural, which will continue to explore the aftermath of Dodds' death. Meanwhile, Benson and Tucker's' relationship will grow even stronger, which will bring out a different side of the lieutenant. SVU will also take on a case inspired by Making a Murderer, which will feature Kelli Williams and Henry Thomas.


Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 22 at 7:00pm

Where We Left Off: Cheyenne gave birth to her baby, only for the Cloud 9 workers to realize their corporation doesn't offer paid maternity leave. Instead, Glenn suspended Cheyenne with pay so she can have six weeks to spend with her baby. When Glenn is subsequently fired, the Cloud 9 staff staged a walkout to help in protest, bringing Cloud 9's worst nightmare to life.

What's Next: Season 2 will touch on several Cloud 9 corporate issues. We'll see whether the gang was successful in getting Glenn's job back now that Dina has taken over as manager. The show will continue to blend workplace comedy with serious issues after it is revealed that Mateo is an undocumented worker. The Cloud 9 team will then have to figure out whether he can apply to become a U.S. citizen.

-The Blacklist

 Premieres: Thursday, Sept. 22 at 9:00pm

Where We Left Off: Liz is alive and Alexander Kirk is her father. Turns out Liz faked her own death with the help of Mr. Kaplan, so that she could get her daughter Agnes away from Red. Tom, who was aware of the plan, fled to Cuba to reunite with Liz, but he was followed by Kirk. In Cuba, Kirk kidnapped Liz and dropped the big parental bombshell.

What's Next: The moment we've all been waiting for: Liz and Red's big reunion, when he tracks down Kirk's hiding place and goes there to rescue Liz. Red, however, still feels betrayed by the whole faking-her-own-death thing. The fourth season will also uncover Liz's twisted past, as she struggles to come to terms with the truth about her father.


(ImOn Channels 2, HD 802, and Manual Tune 66.2 & 802.0)


Premieres: Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 7:00pm

Where We Left Off: Tony DiNozzo left upon learning that he and Ziva have a daughter named Tali, information that came to light after Ziva was killed during a mortar attack on her farmhouse in Israel.

What's Next: Three new agents are coming on board in an attempt to fill the Tony-sized void in the team. Wilmer Valderrama joins the cast as Nick Torres, a former NCIS field agent who's been missing since he took a deep cover assignment years prior. He's back in the fold now, but the experience has left him less than stable emotionally. Jennifer Esposito plays Alex Quinn, a former agent who left field work to become an instructor, but who is brought onto the team by Gibbs. McGee will take some major steps forward in his relationship with Delilah, and has also been promoted to a senior field agent in Tony's absence. The season will also delve into Bishop's personal life post-divorce, and she'll be front-and-center in an international case that will come up later on in the season.

-Criminal Minds

Premieres: Wednesday, Sept. 28 at 8:00pm

Where We Left Off: Hotch got swatted on suspicion of conspiracy, but it turned out he was set up by a disgruntled anarchist he had put away years ago who was plotting multiple prison breaks. The BAU stopped one, but by the end of the finale, 13 unsubs, including Mr. Scratch, had broken out.

What's Next: How will Hotch leave? Thomas Gibson was suspended and subsequently fired after an on-set altercation with a writer-producer, forcing the show to quickly retool plans. During Gibson's initial suspension, which starts in Episode 3, Hotch was written to be away on temporary duty -- will that set up his ultimate exit? Also in the third episode, Paget Brewster returns for the first of at least six episodes, as Prentiss helps the BAU catch the 13 unsubs on the loose. Adam Rodriguez joins the cast as Luke Alvez, a Fugitive Task Force agent who has served in Iraq and desperately wants to catch one of those said unsubs, the Crimson King. Our baby girl Garcia, still mourning Morgan's absence, doesn't warm to Luke too quickly.


Premieres: Sunday, Oct. 2 at 9:00pm

Where We Left Off: Working with the Iranian diplomat Hashemi, Morland struck a deal to eliminate the devious Vikner and establish himself as the new leader of Moriarty's organization. He vowed to destroy the organization from within in an effort to protect Sherlock and Joan, but this new development meant he would be leaving New York for London. Elsewhere, Joan learned she had a half-sister and Sherlock embarked on a sweet new relationship with Fiona.

What's Next: Morland's decision to relocate Moriarty's organization to London unfortunately means John Noble is no longer a series regular in Season 5, but that's okay because Sherlock and Joan have their hands pretty full already. In the premiere, Sherlock and Watson will assist the NYPD in a manhunt for a serial bomber who has apparently just moved back to town or just woken up from a six-year nap. The investigation will lead Joan to Shinwell Johnson, played by new cast member Nelsan Ellis. Johnson is a reformed criminal whose life Joan once saved.
