    Oh cool I thought Brooklyn Nine Nine had been cancelled. Good to see another season coming up.

    Shame you didn't mention the new season of Angie Tribeca. I think it's just released now in the US. Amazing show if you're a fan of Police Squad/Naked Gun style comedy.

      It was cancelled by Fox, but NBC (who produced the show I think) picked it up again.

      Ironically, Fox cancelled it due to not getting high enough ratings, and the first episode of Season 6 had the highest ratings of any episode to date.

        Yeah I read that in another article. It'll be interesting to see if they can maintain their momentum or whether it was a "blip" where people checked it out again purely because (like me) they thought it had been cancelled.

        it wasnt so much as getting high rating as it was given the futurama and family guy treatment of moving time slots every week and being delayed every now and then for no reason, thus prevent people from watching it so fox could drop it

    Wow awesome list so much good TV this year need to clear a month or two to get up to date!
