The Three Best TV Shows to Start Watching This Fall

It’s that time of year again. As temperatures cool and the days draw in, we’re increasingly finding ourselves wanting to stay inside. All too eager to swap summer evenings in the garden for cozy nights in front of the fire, we’re nonetheless left with a conundrum: how to fill all of those extra hours at home.  

We have one savior: our trusty televisions. Thankfully, our favorite broadcasters and streaming services haven’t let us down. Filling their fall rosters with some fantastic TV watching, they’ve got us covered for the long nights ahead.

So, without further ado, here are the three best TV shows to start watching this fall.

Midnight Mass

The latest spine-chilling installment from the creators of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. Unlike its predecessors, the focus here is not on ghosts and ghouls but something similarly seasonally appropriate: vampires.

This is a genre that’s always popular at this time of year, with content releases ranging from TV shows to books to slot games like NetEnt’s Dracula and Blood Suckers. While you might search out a guide about casino bonuses to find insights into the latter, which also demonstrates the widespread popularity of slot games in general due to the vast number of options, it’s Netflix who can help you with the former. Providing engaging entertainment and immersion, these vampire-themed options are welcome to those eager to get stuck into the spooky season.

Bringing back several members of its ensemble cast from previous seasons, including the always wonderful Kate Siegel, this is a story with sterling performances and a spine-chilling setting. It takes vampire horror back to its roots, transforming its supernatural creations from tormented souls with seductive good looks into truly terrifying creatures of the night. Watch it with your jack-o’-lanterns lit and the lights turned low.  

The Morning Show

Can any show be bad if it stars Jennifer Aniston alongside Reese Witherspoon? Taking the sitcom stars turned A-listers and giving them some meaty scripts to tuck into, this series gives us a glimpse into the scandalous world of morning TV. The main characters are veteran anchor Alex, played by Aniston, and rising star Bradley, played by Witherspoon. Faced with the fallout of calling out their toxic employers live on air, the two must suffer the consequences while trying to salvage their careers. It’s dark, exciting, and depicts the very real difficulties faced by women on TV.

Steve Carrell and Julianna Margulies also star.

Y: The Last Man

We like this one because of its innovative concept. It explores an idea that hasn’t been examined on screen before and that provides gripping and compelling drama. Y: The Last Man is a show based on a DC comic. Set in a post-apocalyptic world, it features a reality where every mammal with a Y chromosome has been eliminated. The exceptions to the rule are one man and his monkey. The series follows the two as they journey through this new world, with reviewers lauding the incredible acting performances of the primary cast. Exploring what would happen if women ran the world – and how power corrupts – it has some gritty source material and doesn’t shy away from difficult and timely topics.   

Tell us, which of these shows are you most excited to enjoy this fall?
