When Your Favorite TV Show Is Coming Back This Fall

Fall 2021 may be a few months away, but the streamers and networks are already hinting at what big TV shows are coming back in September, October and November.

The CW was the first to announce its fall 2021 line-up back in June 2021. This included the network's biggest shows, including Riverdale, The Flash and the second season of the Jared Padalecki-starring Walker.

It is also rebooting two shows that have been off air for a few years: Cult sci-fi The 4400 and Nickelodeon assault course show Legends of the Hidden Temple, rebooted for adults.

CBS followed suit in July with its fall schedule. This included the possibly final season of NCIS as well as its other acronym shows: FBI, SWAT, SEAL Team, NCIS: LA and FBI: Most Wanted.

The network is also rebooting CSI for a new generation.

Netflix is also starting to preview what it has coming in a few months. Though viewers have to wait until the winter for The Witcher, Money Heist and Sex Education are both confirmed to be returning in the fall.
