While we may be taking our first steps into summer, the television networks are doing their best to turn our attention to the fall with 20 new TV series announced — and some of them actually sound pretty great.
There's reboots like the CW’s Dynasty or NBC’s revival of Will and Grace, and even a prequel to TV’s current biggest hit The Big Bang Theory, with Young Sheldon.

Superheroes are ruling the big screen (this summer alone features Guardians Of The Galaxy, Vol. 2, Wonder Woman and Spider-Man: Homecoming), so why shouldn’t the small screen get in on the fun? Fox has got The Gifted, set in the world of the X-Men; then there’s Marvel’s Inhumans for ABC, which is about a royal family of alien superbeings forced to call Earth their new home.
If drama is your preference, it’s there with CBS’s SEAL Team, starring David Boreanaz (who just left the airwaves after 12 seasons on Bones); or you can check out a bit of sci-fi comedy on Fox in Seth MacFarlane’s (he’s the guy who created Family Guy and Ted) The Orville. And it seems like we’re in store for something really special in what looks like a dramedy on CBS, Me, Myself And I.
It wouldn’t hurt to take a sneak peek at the shows voted most likely to be binged — so get ready to set your DVR, because you aren't going to want to miss these!

Eighties excess is back... or at least the CW is hoping that it is. The battle between the Carringtons and the Colbys—two of this country’s richest fictional families—begin anew in this reboot, which centers on two women and a struggle over (what else?) their family money. Says the CW, “The series will be told primarily through the perspectives of two women at odds: Fallon Carrington, daughter of billionate Blake Carrington, and her soon-to-be stepmother, Cristal, a Hispanic woman marrying into this WASP family and America’s most powerful class.” Normally we’d want to avoid this one. Let’s face it, the original took itself so seriously that it eventually crashed under the weight of its own growing campiness. But this version seems to know exactly what it is, and takes on that camp full force. You watch the trailer waiting for the first sign of a slap fight between the two women... and then it happens! We may apologize for recommending this one later, but, hey, you don’t know where we live.
