Where We Left Off: Clarke (Eliza Taylor) took the Flame and went to the City of Light to find A.L.I.E.'s (Erica Cerra) kill switch. A.L.I.E. tried to dissuade Clarke by revealing that radiation from nuclear plants is making Earth uninhabitable, but Clarke pulled the switch anyway. Bellamy (Bob Morley) admitted he had gone to the wrong side and Octavia (Marie Avgeropoulos) killed Pike (Michael Beach).
What's Next: Unable to stop the nuclear meltdown, the only thing the people on Earth can do is figure out how to survive. Unfortunately, it soon becomes clear that there's no way to save everyone. This dire situation will throw everything into chaos, with old alliances breaking down and new ones being made. "Back in the old days, you could tell your enemy or you could tell your friend by the uniform that they were wearing or the clan or tribe that they were wearing, but you can't do that anymore," Adina Porter says. "When land is scarce, war happens."
Despite all this, love is in the air between Kane (Henry Ian Cusick) and Abby (Paige Turco), Murphy (Richard Harmon) and Emori (Luisa D'Oliveira), and Monty (Christopher Larkin) and Harper (Chelsey Reist). And once again, Clarke will have Bellamy by her side as she's forced to face another round of impossible choices. However, Octavia will go to her darkest place yet, devoting herself fully to the life of an assassin, much to Indra's (Porter) glee.
And though the City of Light is officially gone, the Flame -- and the minds of all the commanders inside it -- still exists. However, there are no more Nightbloods, a fact that is crucial to a new character this season, a female Nightblood scout, who finds herself questioning her religion following the events of Season 3. Roan (Zach McGowan) will return as a season regular as he sets out -- with the help of Echo (Tasya Teles) -- to lead not just the Ice Nation, but every survivor. Luna (Nadia Hiker) and Niylah (Jessica Harmon) will also return.

Where We Left Off: Chip Baskets' (Zach Galifianakis) life is in complete shambles after his wife Penelope leaves him for good, the rodeo where he works shuts down and he's reduced to taking a job at Arby's to afford his mother's medical care, which it turns out he doesn't even need to do since Christine's (Louie Anderson) preferred sons are going to pay for it. So he goes full hobo and jumps on a freight train to flee his miserable life (this is a comedy, we swear).
What's Next: Of course, Chip's freedom is short-lived, as police, gutter punks and an unexpected death send him right back to Bakersfield. Chip's twin brother Dale is continuing his icky affair with Chip's Eeyore-like friend Martha (Martha Kelly), and Christine, after taking care of her burdensome adult sons for so long, is finally putting her own happiness first. Good for her. She earned it just as much as Louie Anderson earned that Emmy for playing her.
Premieres: Spring 2017
Where We Left Off: Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) was still himself -- an unscrupulous but ultimately well-meaning attorney -- and not full-on crook Saul Goodman, but he's inching ever closer. He admitted to tampering with legal documents to undermine his brother Chuck (Michael McKean), but unbeknownst to him, Chuck was recording the conversation. Elsewhere, Mike Ehrmantraut (Jonathan Banks) failed to snipe drug kingpin Hector "Tio" Salamanca (Mark Margolis) when he was interrupted by blaring horn drawing him back to his car, where he found a note left by an unknown interloper that read simply, "DON'T."
What's Next: Well, as the anagram hidden within Season 2's episode titles says, Fring's back! Gus Fring, Breaking Bad's terrifying drug kingpin played by Giancarlo Esposito, will make his first appearance in the prequel in Season 3. Executive producer Peter Gould is keeping details about Fring's return close to the vest, but he's pretty sure fans of Breaking Bad are going to be "tickled pink" by what they see. However, he was willing to spill that the action is going to start quickly. "This season starts off with a bang," he says. "There's so much rip-roaring conflict in the season. It really goes to a new level." In addition to the consistently great work from Odenkirk, Banks, McKean and Rhea Seehorn, Gould says Season 3 also contains Michael Mando's best work on the series so far as cartel lieutenant Nacho Varga. "We end up getting a lot deeper into Nacho's world as the season goes on," says Gould.
Premieres: Sunday Feb. 19 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: With Wendy (Maggie Siff) leaving both men in her life -- husband and U.S. Attorney Chuck Rhoades Jr. (Paul Giamatti) and her billionaire boss Bobby "Axe" Axelrod (Damian Lewis) -- the two are now perfectly positioned to battle each other, no holds barred.
What's Next: Bobby is working hard to woo Wendy back; Chuck's career -- and freedom -- could be in jeopardy when his estranged wife's business deal comes to the attention of the attorney general.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 5 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: Red Reddington (James Spader), while being tortured by Alexander Kirk (Ulrich Thomsen), whispers something in his ear and then escapes off-screen, later telling Liz (Megan Boone) that Alexander Kirk is out of her and Tom's (Ryan Eggold) life for good. Mr. Kaplan (Susan Blommaert) leaves the cabin where she was being held and hitchhikes a ride to (hopefully) safety.
What's Next: The big question on viewers' minds heading into the back half of the season is: What did Reddington say to Kirk? The answer to that will be put on hold for the time being though, as the task force has more pressing problems to deal with in the return episode: Namely, finding out who has been leaking information to suspected terrorists. The person's identity will be revealed by the end of the episode, and will have major repercussions going forward. In other news, Aram and Samar get one big step closer to romance.
Premieres: Sunday, Jan. 29 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Eleanor (Hannah New) switched sides and teamed up with Woodes (Luke Roberts), leading to the death of Vane (Zach McGowan). Dobbs (Richard Lothian) pretended to be a turncoat and lured Hornigold (Patrick Lyster) into a trap, allowing Flint (Toby Stephens) to kill him. Flint also opened up about his past to Silver (Luke Arnold), who said he doesn't plan to be brought down by his association with Flint. Billy Bones (Tom Hopper) killed Captain Throckmorton (Dan Robbertse) after giving him a black spot and began crafting the legend of Long John Silver to sow seeds of rebellion on Nassau.
What's Next: Black Sails will continue to explore the aftermath of Vane's execution and what that means in Nassau, where the pirates will be more revolutionized than ever. Season 4 will kick off with a large-scale battle, and will also show the pirates go to war in the West Indies. Every character will find themselves questioning what it is exactly that they're fighting for, but this season will be particularly important for Silver and Blackbeard (Ray Stevenson). And by the end of Black Sails' final season, the story will finally bring viewers to the shores of Treasure Island.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan 4 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Well for starters, someone got shot! Was it Agent Patterson (Ashley Johnson) or the just uncovered mole Dr. Borden (Ukweli Roach)? Their relationship is kaput, and one of them probably has a bullet lodged somewhere in their body as a reminder. Jane (Jaimie Alexander) managed to convince Roman (Luke Mitchell) to take her side over Sandstorm's, and the two escaped. Jane also gave Roman an injection of ZIP -- the very same drug that erased her memory -- in an attempt to give Roman a fresh start. Meanwhile, Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) learned that Sandstorm has been tracking him since he was a kid, and Reade (Rob Brown) discovered that his friend killed the abusive Coach Jones.
What's Next: In true Blindspot fashion, things will continue to be "more explosive and fun," according to creator Martin Gero. And of course, questions will be answered, and those answers will lead to more questions. "Why the tattoos, what's Shepherd's endgame -- a lot of the big mythology questions are going to be answered in these next 13 episodes," Gero tells TVGuide.com. Patterson will also be on a revenge mission against Borden, you know, for being a mole and duping her into a romance. But if that's not enough to get you excited, Gero has one more tease: "And we have a twist ending..."
Premieres: Tuesday, Jan. 3 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Emily Deschanel's Bones was kidnapped by former squib Zack (Eric Millegan), who the team believes is the Puppeteer serial killer. Meanwhile, Hodgins (T.J. Thyne) began to have leg spasms, returning hope he may be able to walk again.
What's Next: The season premiere of Bones will answer exactly why Zack kidnapped Bones and reveal his full involvement with the Puppeteer murders. There will also be more developments in Hodgins' quest to be able to use his legs again, though not all of them will be good. The final 12 episodes of the show will see fan-favorite characters continue to return as well as last season's special guest Betty White.
Premieres: To Be Announced
Where We Left Off: A sniper from the conspiracy took a shot at President Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland), but a distraction from Hannah Wells (Maggie Q) likely threw off his aim and the bullet was still in the air as the winter finale ended. That's one heck of a cliffhanger! Emily (Italia Ricci) also got good intel that Aaron (Adan Canto) -- who she just kissed -- may be the traitor inside the White House who provided schematics of the Capitol building to terrorists.
What's Next: ABC isn't saying much, but we have to assume that Kirkman made it out alive, since Kiefer Sutherland is the star and all. So if Kirkman lives, how deep into the conspiracy does he get, and does the show's tone change entirely?
Premieres: Wednesday, Feb. 1 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: Miller (Thomas Jane) discovered Julie Mao's (Florence Faivre) corpse, which was covered in the blue bio-weapon. Everyone on Eros was murdered through radiation and the blue bio-weapon in an experiment run by Dresden and Julie Mao's father, Jules. Holden (Steven Strait), his crew and Miller escape together on the Rocinante. Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) discovered the drives on the stealth ships were built on Earth and Errinwright (Shawn Doyle) is involved with the plot to star a war between Mars and Earth. The blue bio-weapon continued to evolve, learning to take the shape of a human form.
What's Next: Now that Miller and the Roci crew have escaped Eros, they don't know where to go or who to trust. But before they figure out their next moves, they'll have to figure out the new dynamic now that Miller is onboard. "Miller doesn't fit in," says showrunner Naren Shankar. "And it's a question of, 'Are they going to be able to work together? Are they going to pull each other apart?'"
The opening of Season 2 will also introduce the much-awaited Martian perspective through the new character Bobbie Draper (Frankie Adams), a Martian marine who plays a pivotal role in the storyline moving forward. "She is one of the frontline soldiers who are willing to fight and die to protect [Mars] from what they see as the old dissipated empire that is Old Earth," Shankar says.
Now that the world and conspiracies of The Expanse have been established, Season 2 will also feature a much faster pace and be less about mysteries and more about answers - including what exactly the blue bio-weapon, also known as the protomolecule, really is. "It's not just a biotoxin or some sort of weird virus," Shankar teases. There's intelligence and agency. It's something very, very different and unusual and scary."
Premieres: Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: It was cliffhanger central last season on The Fosters. Jesus (Noah Centineo) collapsed after getting into a fight with Nick (Louis Hunter) that reaggravated his nail gun-related brain injury. Meanwhile, Callie (Maia Mitchell) realized she was stuck in a car with Mrs. Johnson's actual murderer and Brandon (David Lambert) had his Juilliard dreams dashed after his SAT scam came to light to the College Board.
What's Next: The first two episodes back will focus on Jesus and the "fight of his life, for his life," executive producer Bradley Bredeweg tells TVGuide.com. However, Callie isn't out of the woods either. She'll have to create an "explosive" situation to get out of car with Troy, and the resulting consequences will put her right back in the judicial system with her entire future at risk. Brandon is also on a journey of self-discovery this season as he attempts to put the pieces of his life back together after his own ill-advised actions ruined his lifelong dream.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 5 at 8:30/7:30c
Where We Left Off: Season 1 took a break before its final four episodes with a dual cliffhanger. First, Eleanor Shellstrop's (Kristen Bell) fate was up in the air, as she may be sent to the Bad Place now that the mix-up that sent her to the Good Place and good Eleanor to the Bad Place has been discovered. If she wants to stay, she will have to plead her case to Sean, the the supreme arbiter of both realms, who will then pass judgment. Two, Tahani (Jameela Jamil) figured out that her soulmate Jianyu (Manny Jacinto) wasn't a noble, silent Buddhist monk and is actually a dirtbag from Florida. So Jason Mendoza's fate is up in the air, too.
What's Next: Who's Sean? Executive producer Michael Schur says he's someone fans of his other shows -- The Office, Parks and Recreation, Brooklyn Nine-Nine and Master of None -- will recognize. "It's not gonna be a gigantic, explosive, we-never-saw-this-coming kind of cameo," says Schur, "but if people have watched other shows that I've worked on, when they see the particular actor that's playing the role, they'll be like, 'Oh, that makes sense.'" As befits a supreme being with the blandest name the writers could think of. And Ted Danson's angelic Michael -- the last major character whose life before he got to the Good Place we haven't seen -- will finally get an episode from his perspective.
Premieres: Sunday, Feb. 12 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: The fifth season of the dramedy that launched Adam Driver's career (kind of ironic, isn't it?) ended with Kylo Adam and his girlfriend Jessa (Jemima Kirke) having a blowout fight over Jessa's resentment of Adam for driving a wedge between her and Hannah (Lena Dunham). Hannah, for her part, was happy for once, starting to put the past behind her and maybe, just maybe, start to grow up. Elsewhere, Ray (Alex Karpovsky) and Marnie (Allison Williams) got back together, and Ray agreed to go on tour with her and Desi, the obnoxious dudebro from whom she's getting divorced. That'll be fun.
What's Next: "Every year I say 'this year's a little bit about them trying to grow up,' and this year it's the truest," executive producer Jenni Konner says of Girls' sixth and final season. "It was our last chance to give the characters their last chance." It could end with the Girls going their separate ways. Konner thinks the ending will satisfy fans, but don't expect it to be too neat: "It's Girls," says Konner, "we don't tie it up in a bow."
Adam Driver is back from Star Wars, and another Star Wars actor will be making an appearance -- Rogue One's Riz Ahmed, who Konner says will be playing a character "way less murdery" than the one he played on HBO's excellent miniseries The Night Of. The Star Wars-Girls connection remains one of the most delightfully incongruous ones in pop culture: Ahmed is the third Star Wars actor on Girls -- Rogue One star Felicity Jones appeared in a 2014 episode -- and the first to appear post-Star Wars.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Convinced she didn't want to try having more children, Amelia (Caterina Scorsone) left Owen (Kevin McKidd) and told him via a note not to come after her. Jo (Camilla Luddington) finally confessed to Alex (Justin Chambers) that she's married to an abusive man and changed her name so that she could escape him, and Alex contemplated turning himself in to spend two years in prison for assaulting DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti). And newcomer Eliza Minnick (Marika Dominczyk) got flirty with Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and indicated that she's prepared to take over from Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.), causing the Grey Sloan staff to rally behind their longtime leader.
What's Next: According to Kevin McKidd, Owen will ignore Amelia's request and go after his wife - though whether they'll be able to reconcile remains up in the air. "There comes a time where enough's enough," McKidd notes. "She was almost a runaway bride at the wedding, and now she's running again. ... This kind of on-again-off-again thing can't go on forever." Meanwhile, at the hospital, battle lines are drawn as Minnick faces off with Webber, and no one feels more caught in the middle than Arizona, who continues to struggle with her feelings for Dr. Minnick and her loyalty to Webber. "As long as Eliza represents Richard Webber in any way, shape or form being ousted or compromised, then [Arizona's] not going to be able to wholeheartedly jump into something that feels fresh and new exciting without feeling sort of apologetic about it," Jessica Capshaw explains. "[She's] feeling like, 'Man, really, I'm going to have to pass this up? ... This stinks." And, though no one will know what decision Alex comes to until the show returns, Capshaw promises that the repercussions from his actions won't end with him choosing whether or not to go to jail. For starters, will he ever be able to work at Grey Sloan again? "A lot hinges on whether or not he's going to be able to disentangle himself from this mess," Capshaw says.
Premieres: Friday, Jan. 6 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Nick (David Giuntoli) came face to face with the worst the Black Claw could offer in hopes of restoring some peace to Portland. He would have been a goner if Renard (Sasha Roiz), who was being controlled remotely by Dianna, hadn't stepped in and killed Bonaparte (Shaun Toub) before Nick could be taken out. Meanwhile, the rest of the Scoobies were hiding out in the tunnel. Rosalee (Bree Turner) dropped the truth bomb that she was pregnant and Eve's (Bitsie Tulloch) personality wall dropped to reveal that Juliette is still underneath all the Hadrian's Wall reprogramming.
What's Next: Bonaparte's death hasn't done much to slow down the war between good Wessen and the Black Claw. In Season 6, Renard uses the murder as a way to climb the ranks, pins it on Nick and starts a citywide manhunt to find the Grimm and take him out for good. The Scoobies are going to have to rise to an entirely new level if they want to wipe out the Black Claw for good before the final season is over -- and they may have to do it for a while without their leader in the immediate area.
Premieres: Sunday, Jan. 15 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Carrie Mathison (Claire Danes) saved the day yet again - but at possibly her highest price yet. Quinn (Rupert Friend), after being exposed to sarin gas and then brought out of his coma prematurely so that Carrie could get information from him, suffers a hematoma and appears to be on his way to the next life. Also, During (Sebastian Koch) proposes a partnership with Carrie, both personally and professionally.
What's Next: The new season will be set in New York, where Carrie has relocated to - spoiler - take care of Quinn while he's in rehab. The country is in a time of change, having just elected its first female president (played by new cast member Elizabeth Marvel), and Season 6 will explore the transition of power and the role the intelligence community plays in that. However, the CIA and other intelligence agencies will have a tough time getting through to the new president-elect, who is skeptical at best about the information she's getting. "She's looked at the past 60 years of intelligence work in this country and she sees, from her perspective, one failure after the next," executive producer Alex Gansa says. "So she is determined to shake that up." Dovetailing with that storyline is Carrie's latest cause célèbre, the case of a young African-American man who's being accused of ties to terrorism because of content he's posted on social media.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: That glimpse of Wes (Alfred Enoch) in the future was alas just a fake-out. He was revealed to be the dead person #UnderTheSheet -- but he was already dead before Annalise's (Viola Davis) house exploded.
What's Next: Yes, Wes is really dead. The remaining six episodes of the season will show the lead-up to his death and who killed him. The midseason premiere picks up hours after the finale and will reveal Laurel's (Karla Souza) baby daddy, along with a major story involving Michaela's mom Trishelle (Brett Butler). Also look for Annalise to reevaluate her relationship with Frank now that she's in jail. "I think for Annalise it's, is she going to need him now? We've never seen her be less powerful than in this moment," showrunner Peter Nowalk tells TVGuide.com. Returning guest stars include Corbin Reid as Meggy, Luna Velez as Hargrove, and Cicely Tyson and Roger Robinson, respectively, as Annalise's parents.
Premieres: Monday, Feb. 13 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: The U.K. hit told the story of a future where androids -- called synths -- are incorporated into daily life as companions, nannies, manual laborers and other jobs. But a select few synths may have achieved consciousness and are trying to find their freedom. In the finale, Niska (Emily Berrington) ran off with a copy of the consciousness program, while the others agreed to not unleash the program on the rest of the synths.
What's Next: Season 2, which already aired overseas, continues the robot rebellion as seemingly random synths are given consciousness when Niska uploads the special program into a network. Meanwhile, Leo (Colin Morgan) continues to try to save his synth friends with deadly consequences.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: Same place we always leave off: Dennis (Glenn Howerton) is a sociopath, Dee (Kaitlin Olson) is pathetic, Charlie (Charlie Day) is an imbecile and Frank (Danny DeVito) is criminally insane. Sunny doesn't do growth. The only thing that changed is that Mac (Rob McElhenney) realized he's gay.
What's Next: Mac's back in the closet when Season 12 picks up, but the premiere is a musical, and he said in the Season 11 finale he sees musical theater becoming one of his things now, so we'll see where he goes with that. Executive producer/star Glenn Howerton says the musical, in which the gang deals with racism, goes really far even by Sunny's button-pushing standards. "There was some debate along the way as to whether or not we should even do this episode," he says, since it's white men addressing a topic they have no personal experience with. But Howerton is "extraordinarily proud" of how it came out, and says it's one of his favorite they've ever done. The musical will pack 10 original songs into its 20-ish minute runtime.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Quentin (Jason Ralph) led his friends to Fillory in hopes of defeating the Beast (Charles Mesure), but even with Alice (Olivia Taylor Dudley) "juiced up" on god sperm, they were no match for him. He cut off Penny's (Arjun Gupta) hands and knocked everyone else out before Julia (Stella Maeve) took the only weapon that could kill him and held it to his throat. She betrayed the rest of the group, asking the Beast if he would make a deal to help her kill the god that raped her and killed her friends -- leaving Quentin and the rest of the group completely incapacitated in Fillory.
What's Next: It's not looking good for the new high kings and queens of Fillory! The sophomore season of the Syfy drama picks up moments after Julia's betrayal, with Quentin desperately searching the woods to find help for his friends. The magicians are basically starting at square one again as they try to find another weapon to take down the Beast before they track down where he skipped off to with Julia. Meanwhile, J is determined to find the Trickster who ruined her life, but spending so much time with the Beast starts giving her terrible ideas about how to move on with the rest of her life.
Premieres: Wednesday, Feb. 22 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Assistant Chief Taylor was killed in a courtroom shooting during the murder trial of neo-Nazi Dwight Darnell. Buzz tracked down his father and uncle's killer and got him to confess. Andy suffered a heart attack at the end of the finale.
What's Next: Does Andy survive? Showrunner James Duff obviously won't spill, but all signs point to yes. Meanwhile, there'll be no shortage of candidates up for Taylor's job, including Sharon, Fritz, and new cast members Camryn Manheim as Deputy Chief Winnie Davis and Leonard Robert as Commander Leo Mason, respectively. Only Winnie actually wants the gig, but will she get it? Rob Estes will also guest-star in the midseason premiere as an Olivia Pope fixer type.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 4 at 10:30/9:30c
Where We Left Off: After Mike (Eric Andre) broke up with Josh's (Jay Baruchel) crush Rosa (Rosa Salazar), Josh tried to date Rosa, irking Mike. They suited up as giant robots to fight it out, but ended up realizing their friendship was more valuable than dating the same girl. Then they hung out with Josh's sister Liz (Britt Lower) and an eyeless prophet because that's how this show rolls.
What's Next: Josh gets a new girlfriend, of course, and according to promos, he may put a ring on her finger! Katie Findlay joins the season as Josh's latest long-term love interest.
Premieres: Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: The first half of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s fourth season introduced the world of magic to a show that has always relied on science to explain powers or powered people. The midseason finale wrapped up Gabriel Luna's Ghost Rider arc (at least for now) and pushed AIDA (Mallory Jansen) and the idea of Life Model Decoys to the foreground by revealing that who we thought was Agent May (Ming-Na Wen) all this time was actually an android and the real May was locked away. Oh, and Daisy (Chloe Bennet) was finally reinstated as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. after months away from the team.
What's Next: With Ghost Rider going back on the shelf for a bit (he'll be back, let's be real), the show is moving on to a new chapter in the season's story. The show will dig a bit more into Mace (Jason O'Mara) and his history as he keeps the AIDA program running. We'll also find out why AIDA has kept the real Agent May locked away and replaced her with a robot version of herself.
Premieres: Sunday, Jan. 22 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Frank (Jack Falahee) forcefully stopped the plan to assassinate Lincoln when he saw Emma (Hannah James) in line to meet the president and plead for her father's freedom. Foster (Josh Radnor) finally took charge of the hospital and put Bullen (Wade Williams) in his place -- and also finally softened with Mary (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) after observing her with a patient who deserted his military duties. Aurelia (Shalita Grant) also found her way to freedom and was miraculously reunited with her family before heading north.
What's Next: Frank will have to find some way to explain to his compatriots why the bomb that was supposed to blow up the hospital and kill the visiting president didn't go off -- and we can promise they aren't going to accept "The woman I love was in line to see him!" as a valid excuse. Meanwhile, Foster and Mary will have to continue standing up for the way they want to run the hospital in light of making enemies that have different plans for how the hospital should be run. Jimmy Green will also continue as the head of the Green family, running illegal items to the South while his father remains in jail and risk disgracing his family name.
Premieres: Tuesday, Feb. 14
Where We Left Off: Mindy (Mindy Kaling) decided not to ruin Danny's (Chris Messina) wedding to Sarah (Greta Gerwig). Ben (Bryan Greenberg) dumped Mindy after she refused to introduce him as a nurse to a parade of her ex-boyfriends.
What's Next: In the premiere, Mindy will find herself stuck in a Groundhog's Day-like loop, giving her a opportunity to make things right with Ben. And when Mindy is later passed over for a promotion due to her gender and race, magic once again will help her learn a lesson after she wakes up in the body of a white man (Veronica Mars' Ryan Hansen) and gets to live her life from his perspective. As for Mindy's Schulman & Associates colleagues, Colette's (Fortune Feimster) love live will cause strife between her and Morgan (Ike Barinholtz), and Jody (Garret Dillahunt) will try his best to move on from Mindy.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 5 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Juliette's (Hayden Panettiere) plane went missing as she was en route back to Nashville. (As we know from the "sneak peek" of the Season 5 premiere, she survived - but is paralyzed, at least for the time being.) Rayna (Connie Britton) finally convinces her daughter Maddie (Lennon Stella) to come back home rather than emancipate herself. And Will (Chris Carmack) and Kevin (Kyle Dean Massey) get back together, as do Scarlett (Clare Bowen) and Gunnar (Sam Palladio) -- by sharing a passionate kiss onstage mid-performance, which leads a vengeful Autumn (Alicia Witt) firing them as her opening act.
What's Next: Again, we already know that Juliette survives her plane crash though just how long and arduous her road to recovery will be remains a mystery. Rocked by Juliette's near-death experience, Rayna experiences an identity crisis of sorts and decides to reclaim her artistic integrity by recording a concept album with Deacon (Charles Esten) . Meanwhile, she'll face problems at home and at work as Highway 65 finds itself in the midst of financial trouble and Maddie finds herself still as independent as ever, despite moving back home. Scarlett and Gunnar will once again deal with the challenges of being both personal and professional partners, and Will and Kevin's relationship will be tested by the fact that Will faces temptations pretty much everywhere he looks. New characters include Clay, a musician who becomes Maddie's love interest and has a hidden dark side; Zach Welles, a Silicon Valley entrepreneur who takes a (possibly unhealthy) interest in Rayna, and Allyson a character played by transgender actress Jen Richards who will be integral to Juliette's recovery storyline.
Premieres: Friday, March 17 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: The Mikaelsons were effectively disarmed after Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) took over New Orleans. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is in a pain-induced coma thanks to being stuck with the Tunde blade, Rebecca (Claire Holt) is cursed, Freya (Rita Voelkel) is poisoned and Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic) have the deadly bite that can't be cured. The latter four have been staked or put to sleep until Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) can figure out how to wake them up safely.
What's Next: A time jump! It's going to take a Hayley a minute to be able to figure out a way to wake the rest of her family. Meanwhile, with the Mikaelsons out of commission, New Orleans is vulnerable to a whole new host of threats that may be too much for Marcel and Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) can handle. Powerful vampires and even god-like creatures will descend upon the city with powers we haven't seen before. We also know that the Mikaelsons will have to return at some point (otherwise, what is this show?) and you can imagine that they will be super pissed when they finally make it back home.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 25
Where We Left Off: Eddie (Aaron Paul) decides to leave Meyerism and his family, and witnesses what appears to be the resurrection of Steve. After Eddie defects, Sarah (Michelle Monaghan) becomes closer than ever with Cal (Hugh Dancy), positioning herself for a leadership role even as she begins to question whether she can trust Cal. Hawk (Kyle Allen) and Ashley's (Amy Forsyth) relationship seems to be dead in the water, though Hawk is still in the dark about why Ashley dumped him.
What's Next: Eddie tries to adjust to life outside the cult while questioning what exactly he saw at the end of Season 1. With his marriage to Sarah more strained than ever, he'll also be getting a new romantic interest. Hawk, caught in the middle of his parents' crumbling relationship, will find himself being more loyal to his father than to his mother. But Cal will make a strong play for Hawk's affection/loyalty, which will only reinforce Eddie's animosity towards the cult leader and cause him to go to great lengths to protect his son. Dexter alum James Remar is also joining the show as a creepy newcomer.

Where We Left Off: Big Foster (David Morse) was shot down by Asa (Joe Anderson) at G'Win's (Gillian Alexy) urging. However, G'Win took over as brennin and sent Asa to the box before Wade (Kyle Gallner) and the city cops made their way up the mountain. The Farrells gathered together to meet the police head-on and the season ended as a streak of lightening opened right above Wade's head.
What's Next: The results of the showdown will be the first order of business. We know the Farrells were able to scare off the police -- at least temporarily -- but Season 2 will take the tension between the mountain people and the town to dangerous heights. Is it possible for them to coexist? It seems that one is going to have to give in to the other for that to happen and neither side looks ready to back down.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 5 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: With odd sketches about the hipster-y pickling retirement mecca for people in their late-20s!
What's Next: More wacky sketches about farm-raised chickens, hardcore bicycling, snooty mixologists and more. Abbi Jacobsen, Tim Heideker, Run the Jewels, The B-52s and Judy Greer are among the guests dropping by this season.
Premieres: Monday, Jan. 23 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: In The Farm timeline, Ryan (Jake McLaughlin), Dayana (Pearl Thusi) and Leon (Aarón Díaz) were recruited by the AIC; Ryan proposed to Alex (Priyanka Chopra), who accepted; Alex got kicked out of the FBI's AIC mission but decided to stay to suss them out herself; Lydia (Tracy Ifeachor) took off for a field mission; and Harry (Russell Tovey) debriefed Charlotte, his MI-6 handler/sister of his late boyfriend Elliott, back in London. In the present timeline, Nimah (Yasmine Al Massri) told a captive Raina that she joined the Citizen's Liberation Front six months ago, while Ryan was revealed to be one of the terrorists after a fight with Alex. He locked her behind a forcefield that would detonate the bioweapon if she crossed it.
What's Next: Has Ryan truly turned? Showrunner Josh Safran tells TVGuide.com that his reveal had always been part of the plan and is "based on something that will be revealed very soon." The midseason premiere will feature the return of Eliza Coupe's Hannah and has a "reframing" that "causes you to look at things differently," he says. The terrorist event will wrap up midway through the season, after which the show will introduce a new structure starting in Episode 14. Meanwhile, Owen's tasks at The Farm will get even murkier. "One of the upcoming lessons they have to learn is how to use your body to get what you want," Safran says. "That's complicated, clearly, because if it comes to that, you might have to go to that place and can you go to that place?"

Where We Left Off: Lola (Anna Popplewell) was executed following a botched attempt to murder Queen Elizabeth (Rachel Skarsten) in one of the show's most heartbreaking moments. Sebastian (Torrence Combs) also made his last appearance in court before leaving to become a druid. The Season 3 cliffhanger found Leith (Jonathan Lippert Keltz) being stabbed in the snow and clinging to life in hopes of being able to marry Claude (Rose Williams).
What's Next: The fourth and final season of Reign will see Mary (Adelaide Kane) attempting to keep control of her country while more and more of her friends disappear. She's made a true enemy out of Elizabeth after the assassination attempt, and Lola has paid the ultimate price for it. Will Mary be able to hold on to her throne as those loyal to her diminish and the protestants continue to uprise around Europe? That's the major question this season will have to answer.
Premieres: Thursday, Jan. 19 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Vargas (Ricardo Chavira) named Cyrus (Jeff Perry) as his running mate, while Mellie (Bellamy Young) tapped Jake (Scott Foley) at the suggestion of Olivia (Kerry Washington), who wanted to save her former flame from Rowan's (Joe Morton) clutches. Little did she know that Jake running with Mellie was part of Papa Pope's plan all along.
What's Next: Get ready for a time jump. Season 6 will open on election night, and judging by the trailer, things don't look promising for Mellie. But that could all just be a red herring. There's also a huge cabin explosion and someone will land in the hospital. Jake's wife Vanessa has been recast with Glee's Jessalyn Gilsig, replacing Joelle Carter, who's a series regular on the upcoming Chicago Justice. Jeff Perry's real-life daughter Zoe Perry will also recur in a top-secret role.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Moira (Catherine O'Hara) won the town council seat when Jocelyn (Jennifer Robertson) stepped down from town council after Roland (Chris Elliott) forced people to put up her campaign signs. Jake (Steve Lund) kissed David (Daniel Levy).
What's Next: With Moira concentrating on her new job, Johnny (Eugene Levy) searches for a new life purpose and ends up working as a waiter at Café Tropical. David unwittingly finds himself in a throuple after discovering that Jake is not only dating him but Stevie (Emily Hampshire) too.
Premieres: Monday, Jan. 2 at 8/7c
Where We Left Off: Clary (Katherine McNamara) and Jace (Dominic Sherwood) were hit with a bombshell when they found out the villainous Valentine (Alan Van Sprang) was the biological father of them both, thus making them siblings and canceling all romantic plans. To make matters worse, Jace ditched the Clave -- and his friends! -- to join Valentine's crew because he thought it was his only choice to save the people he cared about.
What's Next: The Clave is NOT thrilled to have lost its best Shadowhunter to Valentine, so the hunt will be on for Jace when Shadowhunters returns. Clary will also be caught between The Clave and her newly-returned-to-life mother, who refuses to believe her when she tries to explain Jace left with Valentine to protect everyone. Meanwhile, Simon (Alberto Rosende) continues to struggle with his new vampire powers as well as his feelings for Clary, and Alec (Matthew Daddario) can't deal with being separated from his parabatai (Jace), which has him lashing out at everyone around him. Fans can expect this to have disastrous consequences for his emerging relationship with Magnus (Harry Shum. Jr).
Premieres: Sunday, Jan. 1 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Watson (Martin Freeman) married Mary (Amanda Abbington) and the couple were expecting their first child. It was then revealed Mary was actually a secret assassin, but John decided to stay with her anyways. Sherlock (Benedict Cumberbatch) fatally shot Magnussen (Lars Mikkelsen) and as punishment, Mycroft (Mark Gatiss) arranged for him to be flown out of England. As the plane was taking off, a mysterious message from Moriarty (Andrew Scott) was broadcast across the entire country.
What's Next: Season 4 will be Sherlock's darkest yet, introducing Toby Jones as Culverton Smith, the most evil villain Sherlock and John will have ever faced. Jones will appear in Episode 2, "The Lying Detective," likely a take on the short Holmes story The Dying Detective, in which Smith uses his knowledge of tropical diseases to attempt to murder Sherlock. But the season won't be all doom and gloom. There will still be tons of that iconic Sherlock humor, as well as the joy Mary and John feel as parents to a newborn (although there will be some major drama involving Mary up ahead, so get those tissues ready). Sacha Dhawan will also join the cast as a new character named AJ and the producers have hinted that this season might finally introduce the third Holmes brother, Sherrinford.
Premieres: Friday, Jan. 6 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: In order to defeat the Hidden One and Pandora, a Witness was needed to sacrifice their soul. Ultimately, it was Abbie (Nicole Beharie) that gave up her life to allow Ichabod (Tom Mison) and Jenny (Lyndie Greenwood) to stop the apocalypse once again.
What's Next: With Abbie gone, the Fox drama is undergoing a serious reboot for its fourth season, which moves the story from Sleepy Hollow to Washington, D.C.. After Ichabod accidentally winds up in our nation's capital, he begins to uncover a mass conspiracy unleashing demons into the world (including a demon version of history's own John Wilkes Booth). In D.C., Ichabod meets Diana Thomas (Janina Gavankar), a Secret Service agent who also just lost her partner but is more than wary about teaming up with an 18th century scholar/demon-fighter. However, it's soon revealed that Diana and Ichabod's fates are destined to intertwine - in more ways than one.
Together, Ichabod and Diana discover a secret organization founded by George Washington that documents weird phenomena, giving Ichabod access to a far larger archive than his previous one in Sleepy Hollow. There, he will also find new allies in his fight: Jake (Jerry MacKinnon), an Ichabod superfan, and Alex (Rachel Melvin), a self-taught engineer with a knack for designing weapons and gadgets. Jenny will also join Ichabod in D.C., where they will continue to search for the next Witness and try to move forward from Abbie's death.
Jeremy Davies joins the cast as Malcolm Dreyfuss, the big bad of the season who uses his substantial wealth to orchestrate an elaborate evil plot (which even includes trying to recruit Headless to work for him!). Oona Yaffe will recur as Diana's curious and talented daughter Molly who bonds with Crane and plays a pivotal role this season. John Noble will also return as Ichabod and Katrina's son Henry Parrish, although details surrounding his potential resurrection are being kept tightly under wraps.
Premieres: Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 10/9c
Where We Left Off: Jessica (Gina Torres) turned down Robert Zane's (Wendell Pierce) offer to merge firms and instead handed Pearson Specter Litt to Harvey (Gabriet Macht) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) so she could move to Chicago with Jeff (D.B. Woodside). Harvey offered Mike (Patrick J. Adams) a consultant position. Tara is pregnant with her ex's baby, but that doesn't stop Louis from popping the question.
What's Next: Jessica is indeed gone, but showrunner Aaron Korsh says the door is open for her return. For the time being, Harvey and Louis will (power) struggle in the wake of Jessica's absence, culminating in a twist at the end of the midseason premiere. Could someone else join the firm? Elsewhere, Mike will have job struggles of his own -- in terms of finding one as a convicted felon. Despite Harvey's wishes for him to return, Mike wants to do good elsewhere.
Premieres: Tuesday, Jan. 31 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc) took off for China to embark on an adventure and put a turbulent year behind them. Bay had left Travis (Ryan Lane) in the dust after he confessed he was in love with her, and Daphne needed to decompress after a stressful year in pre-med. Meanwhile, the Kennishes managed to put their financial troubles behind them, while Toby (Lucas Grabeel) welcomed his first child in the show's Season 4 finale.
What's Next: Switched at Birth will kick off its final season with a ton of action. We'll find out what exactly kept the girls in China for an entire year rather than just the summer, as well as who was on the other end of "the call" beckoning the Bay and Daphne back to Kansas City. Both girls will also find that returning home isn't as easy as they thought as they try to readjust to their lives after a year away. Bay continues to pursue her path as a tattoo artist while Daphne goes back to school, but the latter will become embroiled in a campus racism fight that will be an eye-opening experience for everyone on the show and audiences at home. Later in the season, fans can welcome back Angelo (Gilles Marini), who makes a special appearance in the show's 100th episode.
Premieres: Sunday, Feb. 12 at 9/8c
Where We Left Off: Most of the gang's finally back together after being scattered for the first half of Season 7. Rick Grimes (Andrew Lincoln) is preparing to lead his people in a fight against Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), who's been terrorizing them. But before he can rise up, he needs to secure the assistance of the other colonies introduced in Season 7.
What's Next: The second half of Season 7 is set up to follow an arc from the comics called "All Out War," so it'll be pretty straightforward. A lot of blood will be shed on all sides in the fight against Negan, so be prepared to lose some more beloved characters. Personally, we're looking forward to seeing more of crazy-like-a-fox King Ezekiel and his pet tiger Shiva, who didn't appear much in the first half but will play a major role coming up.
