Fall TV Preview: 10 New Shows We Can't Wait For!

The Fall TV season is quickly approaching -- and a crop of brand new shows will make their debut in the next coming weeks.

From Sarah Michelle Gellar's return to the tube to a creepy horror show from the creator of "Glee," here are the 10 shows TooFab's Brian Particelli recommends tuning in for.

1) The Ringer

Premiere Date: September 13, 9pm on The CW
Why We're Excited For It:

We've been waiting for Sarah Michelle Gellar to return to TV since "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" went off the air 2003 -- and "Ringer" definitely has an intriguing premise.

The show revolves around twin sisters Siobhan and Bridget, with SMG playing both roles. When the Siobhan goes missing, Bridget takes on her wealthy sister's identity -- but things are no better or safer as secrets about Siobhan's own life unfold.

Ioan Gruffud, Nestor Carbonell and Kristoffer Polaha co-star.


2.) The Playboy Club

Premiere Date: September 19, 10pm on NBC
Why We're Excited For It:

With "Mad Men" off the air until 2012, "Playboy Club" is one of two new shows will try to cash in on the retro-TV craze in its absence -- and this one looks like good, sexy fun.

Featuring an easy-on-the-eyes cast of Eddie Cibrian, Amber Heard and Channing Tatum's wife Jenna Dewan, the show mixes Bunny costumes and murdered mob bosses as it explores the underside of the glitzy 1960s Playboy Club in Chicago.


3.) Pan Am

Premiere Date: September 25, 10pm on ABC
Why We're Excited For It:

"Pan Am" is the second show aiming to fill the "Mad Men" void and anything bringing Christina Ricci into our homes every week can't be that bad!

The show, which also takes place in the 60s, will follow the lives of young, hot flight attendants and pilots and promises "passion," "adventure" and "espionage" -- so we're giving it a shot.


4.) American Horror Story

Premiere Date: October 5, 10pm on FX
Why We're Excited For It:

"American Horror Story" comes from Ryan Murphy, the guy behind of "Glee" and "Nip/Tuck," and looks like the perfect mix of creepy and kinky.

Having amazing TV actors like Connie Britton and Dylan McDermott makes it a bigger draw, as the two star as a married couple who move into a haunted house with their teenage daughter.

With an October start date, the show should be a great way to get into the Halloween spirit.

5.) New Girl

Premiere Date: September 20, 9pm on FOX
Why We're Excited For It:

Two words: Zooey Deschanel. The Kewpie-eyed actress is just so adorable it's hard not to love her -- and after breakout roles in movies like "Elf" and "500 Days of Summer," this show about a girl on the rebound after a bad breakup will only endear fans even more.

Plus, the preview clips look pretty funny and we hear the talented singer actually belts out a few tunes in the show.


6.) The X Factor

Premiere Date: September 22, 8pm on FOX
Why We're Excited For It:

While "American Idol" was good fun last season, Simon Cowell and his brutally honest critiques were sorely missed, so getting him back in front of some delusional singers with the loopy Paula Abdul is sure to be great.

It'll also be interesting to see how the behind-the-scenes drama with replacing Cheryl Cole carries out onscreen, as some of her audition round material is expected to be used on the show.

Was her accent really that hard to understand?

7.) The Secret Circle

Premiere Date: September 15, 9pm on The CW
Why We're Excited For It:

"Vampire Diaries" has us hooked and this companion show about teenage witches in Washington state could be the perfect follow-up for lovers of all things supernatural.

With a fresh-faced cast including Brittany Robertson and Thomas Dekker, "Circle" follows Cassie as she unlocks her magical powers after her mother's mysterious death.

The show is based on a series of books by "Vampire Diaries" writer L.J. Smith.


8.) Terra Nova

Premiere Date: September 26 at 8pm on FOX
Why We're Excited For It:

With a ridiculous budget, a Steven Spielberg producing credit and a trippy dinosaur-filled premise, "Terra Nova" is definitely the most ambitious show to premiere this fall.

The show follows a family as they travel via time machine 85 million years into the past to try and save the future, where they clash with both human and prehistoric foes.

Due to its cost, the show is a BIG gamble for FOX ... but it just may pay off.

9.) 2 Broke Girls

Premiere Date: September 19 at 8:30pm on CBS
Why We're Excited For It:

Kat Dennigs' dry wit made her stand out in flicks like "Thor" and "Nick & Nora's Infinite Playlist" and pairing her with creators Michael Patrick King ("Sex and the City") and the hilarious Whitney Cummings makes for a great team.

The show revolves around two waitresses in their 20s -- one working class and the other, a former rich girl -- trying to make it in NYC.

CBS is hoping fans of "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men" will tune in -- and scheduled "Girls" in the pimp-spot between the two shows.


10:) Project Runway All Stars

0901_runway
Premiere Date: To Be Determined, Lifetime
Why We're Excited For It:

We're already addicted to "Project Runway," so bringing back past favorites like Mondo Guerra, Austin Scarlett and Rami Kashou and giving them another shot to impress seems like a no-brainer.

The prize this time is a doozy too, including a designer’s boutique in select Neiman Marcus stores and on NeimanMarcus.com and a $100,000 cash prize.

Judges Heidi Klum, Nina Garcia and Michael Kors will be sitting this one out, but we're confident Lifetime will find a way to "Make it work."


Which show are you looking forward to most? Sound off below!
