Even with all the shows currently on TV, the time is upon us for our favourite shows to kick-off their latest seasons. We’ve been keeping tabs on most of them, and we await with great anticipation after most of them left us hanging after the last episode of the previous season. We take a look at 4 must watch shows returning soon for their next season, and we briefly discuss some of the burning issues we were left with.
If you are feeling a ‘dry’ season in your TV scheudule then why not give these shows try. Take note that if you are not up to date with the latest seasons, the below information contain spoilers!
1. The Big Bang Theory
Date: 22 September 2014
The last season left us with Sheldon leaving. Sitting on the train station. We cannot wait to fnd out what happens next. We also can expect to see Leonard and Penny getting married?
The 3 main stars recently confirmed a massive $90 million dollar deal. The hefty pay raise will see them coin almost three times more than their current earnings. Taking home no less than $350,000 per episode previously, has now skyrocketed to $1 million per episode! Each star will end up earning close to $90 million by the time their contracts (and presumably the series) end in 2017.

It will be a new beginning for Homeland, after the end of season 3 which saw Brody publicly hanged as Carrie watches in the crowd. The fourth season takes place in Pakistan and Afghanistan with Carrie Mathison assigned to a dangerous CIA station in the Middle East. The season will premiere on October 5, 2014 title “The Drone Queen”
Claire Danes (who plays Carrie), Mandy Patinkin (Saul) and Nazanin Boniadi (Fara) gathered for interviews in a new behind-the-scenes video where they discussed Homeland Season 4.
“Everyone’s going in different directions,” Boniadi reveals in the video, posted via TVLine Friday. “It’s going to be exciting to see where that goes.”
As Danes notes, the season will be taking place in Pakistan and Afghanistan, where Carrie has accepted her new role as Station Chief.
Meanwhile, Patinkin does not like to know what’s going to happen ahead of time, saying that he too plays the guessing game when it comes to what’s ahead. He adds, “I love being wrong.”
He also quips, “I wouldn’t be shocked or surprised if there are shocks and surprises.”

We’re struggling to make our minds up about this show. With DC behind most of it we can expect to see plenty of Superhero cameos. The villain has also been revealed in the promo, and is non other than Ras’al Ghul. Check the reveal and promo here.
4. The Walking Dead

Our favourite zombie show is almost back, and the fifth season of The Walking Dead promises to stretch the limits to what the survivors can endure to a next level. With Rick and the gang captured by the yet unknown group of people, we look forward to seeing them get back and deliver some payback. Check the official trailer for the fifth season here.
AMC president Charlie Collier said in a statement:
“From the opening tease in the premiere onward, season five is without question the most ambitious and satisfying season this amazing team has ever crafted,” “In the zombie apocalypse, event television is alive and well, and I am proud to acknowledge that this uniquely talented writing staff, production team and cast have once again raised the bar (and the crossbow).”
The Walking Dead’ Season 5 is set to kick-off on October 12 at 9 P.M. on AMC.
