You did it! You survived the summer TV season, hopefully picking up a few new favorites along the way that hopefully staved off the aching absence of favorites like Empire, The Walking Dead, and whatever show lights the dark caverns of your soul. Your prize? The return of many of your favorite shows, some old friends in new projects (Bruce Campbell, The Muppets, John Stamos’ hair), and new shows that you may find yourself missing next summer.
Just to be clear, though, there is a lot of television that is going to come pouring into your life over the next three months. Too much? Never. But to get you ready, we’ve compiled this handy guide to the fall 2015 TV season with a few highlighted shows that we think/know you’re going to want to know a little bit more about. So dig in.

You’re The Worst – FXX, 10:30 p.m.
This FXX comedy came out of nowhere last season, subverting all the usual rom-com tropes in a fresh and hilarious way. Sure, these characters have the morals of pirates and all the charm of a dumpster fire, but viewers are rooting for them anyway because they are uniquely human. Season two will surely continue to peel back the veneer to lay bare the inherent grossness of relationships, but we wouldn’t want it any other way.
The League – FXX, 10 p.m.
