​The Americans (FX)

Premieres: Wednesday, March 16 at 10/9c

Where We Left Off: Unable to deal with the truth about her parents, Paige told Pastor Tim about their KGB identities. Philip killed Gene to frame him for Gaad's bugged pen and de-wigged for Martha. Stan saw his job on the line after outing Zinaida as a double agent in hopes of getting Nina back.

What's Next: Season 4 will deal with the fallout of Paige's confession, not just with how Philip and Elizabeth should handle Pastor Tim, but their ever-changing relationship with their daughter. "It's not easy raising a teenager because what they do is unpredictable and they can do things that can impact the whole family. And in this case, she's holding a bomb that could destroy the family," executive producer Joel Fields tells TVGuide.com. On the work front, Philip and Elizabeth's new assignment involves glanders, an infectious disease in horses once used as a bioweapon. Stan grows suspicious after he learns that Philip and Sandra, who've been attending EST sessions, are out and about together. Nina is still working over Anton. "That's her mission to freedom," Annet Mahendru says. "It's a really fascinating relationship between her and Anton that has been building. Neither of them knows what to make of it."

What's Next: Picking up a year after the finale, Jenna returns home for the summer and begins a fellowship at an Internet startup alongside Luke. Mean Girls' Jonathan Bennett will play Ethan, another of Jenna's coworkers, who totally hits it off with Tamara (but not so much with Jenna). Jake will regret his decision to not go to college and we'll also get to meet Jenna's baby sister for the first time. Oh, and did we mention that something major will have happened between Matty and Jenna -- something so bad, in fact, that Jenna hasn't even told Tamara exactly what went down?

What's Next: This is Banshee's last season, and it will be pulling out all the sex and violence stops as it barrels toward a final showdown between false sheriff Lucas Hood and gangster businessman Kai Proctor. Dollhouse and Buffy the Vampire Slayer alum Eliza Dushku joins the cast as sexy, reckless FBI profiler Veronica Dawson, and though she's working with Lucas, she'll surely still be able to see right through him.

Bones (Fox)

Premieres: Thursday, April 14 at 8/7c

Bosch (Amazon)

Premieres: Friday, March 11

Where We Left Off: Bosch wrapped up the Raynard Waits case that had plagued him for the first nine episodes of the series. The sentimental note came when Bosch finally opened up to his daughter Madeline after keeping her at bay all season.

What's Next: Season 2 will be largely based on Michael Connelly's Trunk Music novel in the Bosch book series. Bosch will head to Las Vegas after he finds a body in the trunk of a car on Mulholland Drive.

Call the Midwife (PBS)

Premieres: Sunday, April 3 at 8/7c

Where We Left Off: Patsy and Delia got separated after Delia was carted off to Wales in the wake of a nasty bicycle accident that caused her to lose her memory. In the Christmas special, Patsy and Delia reunited, and Delia said she's been writing to Patsy but her mother hadn't posted the letters because she doesn't want her to move back to London. Delia told Patsy that after she's recovered a little more, she wants to move back and pick up where she and Patsy left off. Sister Mary Cynthia caught Trixie literally calling for help to get her drinking in check, and helped her enroll in Alcoholics Anonymous.

What's Next: The season premiere tackles the Thalidomide scandal, in which expectant mothers who took the anti-nausea drug gave birth to babies who had malformed limbs and other defects. Elsewhere, the social revolution of the 1960s, including the invention of the birth control pill, will play a huge role in the women's (and Dr. Turner's) lives.

The Carmichael Show (NBC)

Premieres: Wednesday, March 9 at 10/9c, then moves to its regular time Sundays at 9/8c

Where We Left Off: The Carmichael Show had a low-key six-episode run last summer, introducing smart young comic Jerrod Carmichael via a throwback "live in front of a studio audience" family sitcom format that intelligently (and funnily) discussed contemporary issues like Black Lives Matter and gun control.

What's Next: The show got a vote of confidence from NBC with an order for a 13-episode second season, and will repay that with an entire episode dealing with former NBC star Bill Cosby. It handles Cosby's tarnished legacy and how to process it with an abnormal amount of nuance for a multi-camera sitcom. "We want to explore things that people are really talking about in the most honest way possible," Carmichael tells TVGuide.com. "I don't think that's done a lot in this format."

Catastrophe (Amazon)

Premieres: Friday, April 8

Where We Left Off: Rob and Sharon get married, but their wedding night turned into an intense war of words about how they were not supposed to end up with each other. It ended with Sharon's water breaking.

What's Next: No, you won't see the birth. That's because there's a huge time jump in Season 2. Rob and Sharon are still together, but now they're in the deep throes of marriage and parenthood. "We wanted to show the horror of a marriage in progress," Rob Delaney said at the Television Critics Association winter TV previews. "That's what we have our first thought of. ... We wanted to cut to the chase and skip all the, you know, lovey-dovey."

What's Next: Hakeem has taken over Empire, while Lucious and Cookie are getting close again.

Strand might not be trustworthy, but he's a better choice right now than staying in L.A. while it's engulfed in flames and descending into lawlessness and chaos.

Arya was blinded by the House of Black and White as punishment for killing Ser Meryn. Theon helped Sansa escape Ramsay and Winterfell. Ellaria murdered Myrcella, who was returning to King's Landing with Trystane, Jamie and Bronn.

When Fisk broke out of police custody, Matt -- decked out in his new super-suit -- took down the Kingpin.

What's Next: A new vigilante, Frank Castle (Jon Bernthal), arrives in Hell's Kitchen and systematically begins massacring the local gangs. Frank's vengeance mission forces Matt to question his own agenda, as well as dig into a far-reaching conspiracy of corruption that may be behind Castle's killing spree. When Matt's ex-girlfriend, Elektra (Elodie Yung), comes to town, he also becomes entangled in a mysterious criminal plot with ties to the Yakuza and the Hand, a clandestine organization of evil ninjas.

What's Next: Whether or not Mindy will actually follow through on moving out is being kept tightly under wraps, but Mindy will have tons of new faces to distract her from her romantic woes. The Walking Dead stars Lauren Cohan and Ross Marquand will both appear in upcoming episodes. Cohan will be featured in two episodes as a woman over whom Morgan and Jody fight. Marquand's role is unknown, but based on this Instagram, it seems as though he will appear at a wedding Mindy attends. Fortune Feimster has been promoted to a series regular for the back half of the season and Mindy's brother Rishi will also return.

What's Next: Teri Hatcher will appear in several episodes as Charlotte, a successful single mother who also lives in the building who will be a love interest for Oscar. Apparently no one has advised Oscar and Charlotte and Felix and Emily that it's not a great idea to date your neighbors.

Where We Left Off: Richard went from an incredible high to a crushing low in the Season 2 finale: An arbitrator ruled that Pied Piper is all his due to an illegal non-compete clause in his contract with Hooli. Then while celebrating with his team, he received word that his board of directors has removed him as CEO. Meanwhile, at Hooli, CEO Gavin Belson is in a similar position after the failure of Nucleus (his streaming service meant to compete with Pied Piper), his sham promotion of Bighead and the fact that half of Hooli's employees' contracts are void.

If Congress fails to break the tie, per the 20th Amendment of the Constitution, VP-elect Tom James could become president. And since he half-jokingly offered Selina a position as his second-in-command, she might revert back to our titular Veep.
