Hello, old friends — and by friends, we mean our favorite TV shows. And as with any friend who’s been away for some time, it’s time to catch up on what’s been going on and discover what’s new.
These returning shows range from a musical drama taking its final bow to a fantasy epic, to a political thriller about a new, embattled president. A superhero is back to prowl the streets of New York, while a queen figures out how to rule and be a mom at the same time. The truth is still out there, and love is still everlasting. Click through this slideshow to get the rundown on 10 returning shows, straight from the cast and creators. And check out our Winter TV Preview, featuring 13 new shows, here.
