It’s October, which means fall – and great fall TV – is officially here to stay. We hope you’ve tuned into some of the new series premieres that September brought, and have maybe already found a few new programs to add to your must-watch list. As the weather grows chillier, rest assured that your nights in this month will be filled with a ton more new shows and the return of your old favorites.

In the coming weeks, lots of hits are coming back for another season, including The Blacklist, The Walking Dead, Homeland, and the latest series of American Horror Story: Hotel. We’re also excited about the new series kicking off this month, including ABC’s new comedy Dr. Ken (10/2), NBC’s Truth Be Told (10/16) and CBS’s Supergirl (10/26). Get cozy and enjoy these great additions to your current fall lineup.

In the something extra department, the entire second season of USA’s Satisfaction will be available all at once starting 10/17. And speaking of binge opportunities, season one of E!’s saucy hit The Royals will ready for watching – or re-watching for some of us – on 10/16, in preparation for the season two premiere on 11/15. Likewise, you can check out the premiere of Esquire’s first scripted series, Spotless, a stylish thriller, a full month before its November premiere, starting 10/17.

This month, the MLB playoffs also get underway. If you need an extra screen, you can stream many of those games online or on your favorite devices with the XFINITY TV Go app
