This fall semester has a lot of students scrambling to get everything done for school and work. Fortunately, fall season also means the return of your favorite TV shows, as well as new series making their debut. We’ve compiled a list of shows to help keep you entertained during those rare lulls in your hectic schedules.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on Fox)

Set in the fictional 99th Precinct of the New York Police Department, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is a sitcom about an unconventional team of detectives led by Captain Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher).

Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg), often steals the spotlight with his child-like wit, humor and surprisingly effective crime solving skills. As seen in the season four finale, his unconventional methods land him in prison after being framed for a robbery.

The supporting cast of detectives includes the monotone, yet intimidating Rosa Diaz, the incredibly competitive Amy Santiago and Charles Boyle who isn’t a standout in terms of performance compared to his fellow detectives, but he puts in more effort than anyone else to prove his usefulness. The detectives work under Sgt. Terry Jeffords (Terry Crews), a family man who puts everything into his job and raising his daughters.

Season five of “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” airs Tuesdays at 9:30/8:30c on Fox.

Available online on: Fox | Hulu | iTunes | Amazon Video

American Horror Story: Cult (Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX)

The anthology horror series returns with a new theme revolving around the 2016 presidential election. Although set in the modern day, “Cult” has been revealed to have ties to its fifth season setting in 1952: “Freak Show.”

“Cult” is speculated to be one of the most politically-charged seasons of the series so far, as executive producer Ryan Murphy revealed he aims to have equal representation of both sides of the current political divide. Murphy also plans to emphasize the positions of people who he believes are neglected by the Trump administration and are at risk of losing their lives as a result.

The roster of rotating veteran cast members include Evan Peters, Sarah Paulson and Emma Roberts. Lena Dunham, Billy Eichner and Colton Haynes are set to make their AHS cast member debut.

Season seven of “AHS: Cult” airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX.

Available online on: FX | iTunes | Amazon Video

Ghosted (Sundays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox)

The new sci-fi comedy follows Leroy Wright (Craig Robinson) and Max Jennifer (Adam Scott), two men who are kidnapped and hired as paranormal investigators by The Bureau Underground. The organization claims to be a secret government agency tasked with investigating unexplained phenomena in the Los Angeles area. According to the Bureau, the paranormal activities are tied to an unknown entity that threatens the existence of all mankind.

Wright is a mall cop who was fired from his previous job as a police officer after his partner died in the line of duty. Unlike his partner, who is a true believer, Wright is skeptical about the paranormal. Jennifer was also fired from his job. After spouting claims that his wife was abducted by aliens, he was relieved of his position as a professor at Stanford.

Season one of “Ghosted” airs Sundays at 8:30/7:30c on Fox.

“Inhumans” is centered around the King of Attilan, Black Bolt (Anson Mount). As leader of the royal family, Black Bolt displays destructive powers that increases the vibrations from his voice.
