The television landscape is cluttered with familiar faces, and we're here to help you navigate.
Whether they're brand new to an already established show or part of a fresh cast in one of the many new series taking flight as the season gets underway, these actors starting new ventures.
Enjoy your sneak peek!
Chace Crawford - Blood and Oil
Does this face really need introduction? Chace Crawford lit up your screens as Nate Archibald on Gossip Girl and you still can't let him go. Will he do the same for you as Billy Lefever on Blood and Oil? The name sure set's you ablaze. Watch what happens when Billy and his wife move to the Bakken to start a laundromat and live out their dream, only to be pitted against a ruthless oil tycoon Sundays at 9/8c.
Lea Michele - Scream Queens
For six years Lea Michele played the beautiful and talented Rachel Berry on Glee. Now she's taking on the role of a dorky sorority pledge on Scream Queens named Hester Ulrich. Hester! Do you think she'll survive the season? The only way to find out is to watch Fox, Tuesdays at 9/8c (the premiere will be one hour earlier).
Zachary Levi - Heroes Reborn
It's Chuck! From Chuck!! Zachary Levi returns to television as Luke Collins in Heroes: Reborn. He's not a hero himself and aims to take them down with the help of his wife because of what they lost at the hands of heroes. Find out more when you tune in Thursdays on NBC at 8/7c.
Marcia Gay Harden - Code Black
Marcia Gay Harden was most recently seen on Trophy Wife as the ex. That hilariously funny show was never given a second season, but Harden will be given a second life as Dr. Leanne Rorish, the doctor in charge of the trauma unit at an LA County hospital. What was that? You recognize Luis Guzmán, too? He's currently in Narcos on Netflix. Good eye! Airing Wednesday at 10/9c on CBS.
Ed Westwick - Wicked City
You're welcome, Gossip Girl fans, as both warring factions of the Chuck and Nate debate are present and accounted for this fall season. Ed Westwick (Chuck Bass, Gossip Girl) will play one half of what will become somewhat of a Bonnie and Clyde duo, with his character, Kent, being a charismatic murderer. Charming! Watch him work with an 80s flair on Tuesdays at 10/9c on ABC.
Aisha Tyler - Criminal Minds
Aisha Tyler is on The Talk, Archer and Whose Line is it Anyway. She was also on Ghost Whisperer, the same as her predecessor on Criminal Minds, Jennifer Love Hewitt! She's joining the BAU Team as forensic psychologist Dr. Tara Lewis. Tune in Wednesdays at 10/9c on CBS!
