September brings new lineup of fall TV shows featuring familar faces, popular movie spinoffs

The arrival of September means the start of fall TV programming.
This season, several well-known actors will be found starring in new shows debuting.
On CBS, Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar star in “The Crazy Ones,” a comedy about an unconventional father-daughter team that runs an advertising agency in Chicago.
Williams plays an eccentric genius father, and Gellar is his determined daughter. The show is set to air on Thursdays at 9 p.m., beginning Sept. 26.
NBC is heralding the return of Michael J. Fox in “The Michael J. Fox Show.”
In this comedy, Fox includes his real-life battle with Parkinson’s disease as he plays a TV reporter, Mike Henry, returning to work.
Given a straight-to-series order, the show airs  Sept. 26.
Brian Webb, junior healthcare administration major, said he is highly anticipating both shows.
“I’m looking forward to both… especially ‘The Michael J. Fox Show,’ what ‘90s kid doesn’t know him (from) ‘Back to the Future?’ And I always like Robin Williams,” Webb said.
“Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D” on ABC is a drama set in the wildly popular Marvel Cinematic Universe, and takes place after the conclusion of the movie “The Avengers.”
S.H.I.E.L.D is a highly secretive law enforcement agency that deals with superhuman threats. The show will follow several agents on their various missions.
Kelsey Greene, freshman liberal studies major, said she is excited to see the expansion of the Marvel Comics universe.
“I love anything that comes from Joss Whedon,” Greene said, “and I loved the ‘Avengers.’ I’m excited to see it continue!”
The pilot will air Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
TV viewers, from all walks, can look forward to a variety of new shows with familiar faces from the big screen.
