Fall dramas return to television

As the leaves fall and the air becomes crisp, so begins the return of beloved TV shows. This year there is a show for anyone looking to escape into another world from the comfort of his or her couch. Caution: spoilers ahead.


The ninth season finale of “Bones” showed Booth’s arrest after he was involved in a government conspiracy theory. After killing three assassins in self-defense, he was arrested for murder, leaving Bones and her squint squad to clear his name.

Season 10 premiered Sept. 25 on Fox with the team scrambling to free Booth and put the conspiracy to rest.


For those wishing for fewer demons and more Nathan Fillion, there is “Castle.” With the wedding of Castle and Beckett only days away, Beckett is shocked to learn a Vegas wedding for a fleeting romance is legal and binding. After tracking down her ex, she learns he is up to no good. His schemes land Castle and Beckett in hot water with a mob boss on the run from the FBI.

After racing the clock to make it to the alter, Castle never shows up, and Beckett learns of his car being found, wrecked and engulfed in flames. The sixth season finale left viewers asking one question: What happened to Castle? Season seven premiered Sept. 29 on ABC.

The Walking Dead

One of the most popular shows of the season is the zombie drama, “The Walking Dead.” When season seven ended, viewers saw Rick and the gang make it to Terminus, getting a less-than-stellar welcoming from the occupants.

As season five begins with most of the survivors trapped in a boxcar, how will they escape and defeat their new captors? Where is Beth? Will Carol and Tyrese fall victim to the trap at Terminus as well? The Walking Dead returns to AMC Oct. 12 at 8 p.m.


“Supernatural’s” ninth season ended with a swirl of “OMG” moments. After killing Dean, Metatron was finally put away by Castiel. Castiel restored his good name, but not his grace. Overtaken by the mark and the first blade, Dean began to delve deeper into his downward spiral, resulting in him turning into a demon after his death. What is next?

Many questions loom over the anxious fans of “Supernatural” in anticipation of season 10. Will Sam and Dean find each other? How will Dean be restored to his pre-demonized self? How will Castiel restore his fading grace? Is Metatron truly defeated? Hopefully these questions will be answered in the Oct. 7 premiere on The CW at 8 p.m.
