If you thought 2015 gave us some of the best new shows and returning seasons in recent TV memory, you ain’t seen nothing yet. At the top of our list for what we’re looking forward to in 2016 is FX’s new limited series “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” (Feb. 2) and Fox’s much-anticipated six-episode return of “The X-Files” (Jan. 24). But what other potential awards fodder — new or returning — is coming down the TV pipeline in the new year?
Our readers, many of whom are Hollywood insiders, have been debating this hot topic in our all-new, much faster and easier-to-navigate TV forum. Read some of their comments below and then join the discussion right here.
Cobalt Blue: For returning series, I mean, the freakin’ “X-Files” is coming back!! Need I say more? But that’s a unique situation — over a decade in the waiting.
jhaddad: I am a huge Bobby Cannavale fan and I think HBO’s “Vinyl” could be an excellent vehicle for him. I am really hoping the show as a whole is great. At first I was just curious about “American Crime Story” but after rave reviews from what you have seen I am very excited.
surpriselover: “Vinyl,” “American Crime Story” and “Game of Thrones” — Can’t wait to see how many Emmy nominations the show gets after winning.
Reis: “Game of Thrones” (Season 6) — All information being released make sure that this season is likely to be the best of the show. So many things will happen, so many WONDERFUL things will happen! I think I’ve never been so excited for a new season of a show as to this.
Cheshire: New: “American Crime Story” and “Vinyl.” Returning: “Shameless” Season 6.
Dark Defender: New: “Billions,” “Vinyl,” “American Crime Story” and “Preacher.” Returning: “Shameless,” “House of Cards” and “Bloodline.”
