  • 'Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt'

    Netflix | May 19

    Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper) is headed back to school in season three of the Netflix comedy, which will also feature Titus (Tituss Burgess) going Lemonade, the return of Jon Hamm's Reverend and Fred Armisen's Robert Durst, and new guest stars including Daveed Diggs and Josh Charles. It premieres May 19.
  • 'Cloak & Dagger'

    Freeform | 2018

    What, exactly is this new Marvel series about? If you're not familiar with the comic series on which it's based, you probably won't get anything from the trailer other than some serious goosebumps. But the show, which is about two teens from different backgrounds who fall in love while discovering their superpowers, will debut on Freeform in 2018.
  • 'Will'

    TNT | July 10

    Don't look for historical accuracy in TNT's William Shakespeare drama, which uses contemporary music and pop culture cues while taking plenty of liberties with the story of young Billy Shakes (OK, they don't call him that, but they could). The new series bows July 10.
  • 'The Bold Type'

    Freeform | July 11

    Freeform's summer drama, based on the life of former Cosmopolitan editor in chief Joanna Coles, stars Melora Hardin as a women's mag honcho and Katie Stevens as a writer and will debut July 11.
  • 'Empire'

    Fox | April 26

    The next five episodes of Empire will be bats— insane, according to this trailer for the rest of the Fox drama's third season. So, business as usual. The Taraji P. Henson starrer returns April 26.

  • 'Siren'

    Freeform | Summer 2018

    Mermaids are real in Freeform's Siren, the network's drama about the battle between man and sea and set in the small coastal town of Bristol Cove. But these mermaids are no Ariel — they're vicious, predatory beings dead-set on reclaiming their right to the ocean. The series will premiere in summer 2018.
  • 'Arrow'

    The CW | April 26

    According to this trailer teasing the end of The CW hit's fifth season, Prometheus (Josh Segarra) and Oliver (Stephen Amell) will have another showdown, Katrina Law’s Nyssa al Ghul will return to take on her big sister, Talia (Lexa Doig), Olicity might reunite, and Oliver will visit Slade (Manu Bennett) and ask him to collaborate. Wait, what? Arrow returns April 26.
  • 'Alone Together'

    Freeform | 2018

    Premiering in 2018, the single-camera comedy executive produced by The Lonely Island follows Esther and Benji (creators Esther Povitsky and Benji Aflalo), pop culture-obsessed BFFs who lean on each other while navigating status-obsessed Los Angeles. 
  • 'The Keepers'

    Netflix | May 19

    Could this be Netflix's new Making a Murderer? The streaming service's latest docuseries investigates the unsolved murder of Sister Cathy Cesnik in 1969 and debuts May 19.
