The X-Files Season 11

Returns: Wednesday, Jan. 3 at 8/7c

Fox's rebooted "event series" is back for Season 11, which will feature the return of Mulder (David Duchovny) and Scully's (Gillian Anderson) son William, in addition to the type of supernatural adventures we've come to love and expect from the alien-hunting duo. With this season widely expected to be Anderson's last, we hope she goes out on a high note.

The newest DC Comics series stars Cress Williams as the titular superhero, who comes out of retirement and returns to his vigilante ways after a corrupt gang begins to take over his community.

American Idol

Premieres: Sunday, March 11 at 8/7c

Will ABC's American Idolbe bigger and better than its predecessor on Fox? Better is still up in the air, but ratings-wise, it will be tough for the reality singing competition to outperform the original. Nevertheless, we're excited to see what changes ABC will bring to the franchise, not to mention how Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie will perform at the judges' table.

The highly-anticipated reboot premieres this spring on ABC and will feature the return of all our favorite Conners -- yes, even Dan (John Goodman), who died of a heart attack in the original show.

Grey's Anatomy Spin-Off

Premieres: TBD, midseason

Details are scarce about the 10-episode Grey's Anatomy spin-off that will follow a group of firefighters (we don't even have a title yet), but we can speculate that Ben's (Jason George) firefighter exam training will result in him embarking upon a new career path. What's less clear is what that will mean for his relationship with Bailey (Chandra Wilson). Jaina Lee Ortiz co-stars as his female lead.

Westworld Season 2

Returns: TBD, spring

Chaos rules Westworld when the HBO series returns for its sophomore season. We don't know where the plot's going after that jaw-dropping Season 1 finale, but we do know that geographically, the show will take viewers outside the central park seen in Season 1 and maybe into other worlds, possibly including a Samurai one and a Roman one.
