The Best New TV Shows For Fall 2022Entertainment
Fall TV season is something we’ve always looked forward to, for as long as we can remember. The 2022 premiers look absolutely fantastic – and we spoke to our friend, Jaqueline Coley, Editor at RottenTomatoes.com to get her picks for the best new shows on her radar. Spoiler alert: everything old is new again – new and fabulous.
First up – American Gigolo
If the name sounds familiar, this sexy thriller is based on a popular 80’s movie. “Jon Bernthal is incredible in just the glimpse we’ve seen from the trailer. You can expect a lot of sex, a lot of violence and a man on a mission to try to reclaim who he is,” says Jacqueline. Bernthal is sent to prison for a murder he didn’t commit – and Rosie O’Donnell is back on TV as the detective. Juicy! Check it out on Showtime.
Next – Quantum Leap
“A bit of a blast from the past… literally,” Coley teases. “We have Quantum Leap, the 1980s and nineties show that stars Scott Bakula is getting a reboot which premieres on Peacock.” It’s been 30 years since Doctor Sam Beckett stepped into the quantum leap accelerator and vanished. Now, a new team will restart the project, in the hopes of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it. You can take a leap with this reboot on NBC or stream it on Peacock, on Monday September 19th.
Last – The Rookie: FEDS
“This time around rather than a later in life rookie police officer as played by Nathan Philly in The Rookie, we have a rookie late in life Federal officer played by Niecy Nash,” Coley says. At 48 years old, The Rookie achieves her dream of becoming an FBI Agent. The Rookie: FEDS premiers on ABC, Tuesday September 27th and can be streamed on Hulu.
