2013-2014 TV: Over forty new series to choose from for the new season

Looking at this new season of TV this year, we welcome back some veterans such as Sarah Michelle Gellar starring in The Crazy Ones on CBS and we welcome TV newbies like Rebel Wilson making her debut in Super Fun Night on ABC.  Spin offs seem to be the thing with Once Upon a Time in Wonderland attempting to be a sensation just like its parent show and The Originals trying to take a bite of the Vampire Diaries success. While there are plenty of new ones to check out and not every one of them will last, here are five that have some potential to make it to a full season.  

5. The Originals, CW: The Vampire Diaries has been one of the CW’s most successful shows that it has aired, so why not give it a spin off? The Originals follows Vampire Diaries baddies Klaus, his brother Elijah and his sister Rebekah to New Orleans where Klaus will try to take back the town that they helped build. Back in April, a back door pilot was shown as an episode of the Vampire Diaries, giving the fans a taste of what they would be in for. Joseph Morgan has been fantastic as Klaus during his Vampire Diaries run and will have no problem headlining his own show. The Originals will premiere October 3 on the CW.

4. Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Fox: Andy Samberg (Saturday Night Live) and Andre Braugher (Last Resort) star in this comedy from Parks and Recreation executive producers Michael Schur and Dan Goor about a laid back cop who is put in his place by a new, stricter boss. Terry Crews (Expendables) and an appearance from Dean Winters (30 Rock) should help with the laughs. The trailer is entertaining so hopefully it can live up to the hype.  Brooklyn premieres on September 17.

3. Almost Human, Fox: Usually a show with JJ Abrams name attached to it does not disappoint. Set in the future, Almost Human stars Karl Urban (Abrams’ Star Trek) as a police officer working in LA with Michael Ealy (Underworld, Takers) as his highly evolved android partner. The star quality is there with Urban and Ealy, along with Minka Kelly (Friday Night Lights), so hopefully the premise will be promising. Almost Human will make its debut on November 4.

2. Intelligence, CBS: It has been a few years too long since Josh Holloway (Lost) has graced us with his presence on our television screen. Holloway stars as a CIA agent with a microchip in his brain that allows him to access the entire electromagnetic spectrum. Holloway definitely has appeal and with Meghan Ory (Once Upon a Time) and Marg Helgenberger (CSI) as the supporting cast, it shouldn’t be a letdown. Although it won’t premiere until mid season, it is definitely one to check out.

1. Marvel Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, ABC: Clark Gregg returns as Agent Coulson in this spin off of 2012’s biggest movie, The Avengers. It will not feature the stars of the Avengers, but it will continue the adventures of the S.H.I.E.L.D agents with some new faces and Joss Whedon promises to be involved in the show. I think this is the most anticipated new show of the season. S.H.I.E.L.D starts on September 24.

If not one of these five, which new show looks to be the most entertaining?
