Don’t let the new fall TV season kick into high gear without catching up beforehand. Some of your favorite series are back in action this fall, and luckily, their previous seasons are ripe for streaming on the many apps you probably subscribe to. Here’s a look at some dramas returning to the airwaves this autumn, and streaming apps and websites where you can watch their previous episodes ahead of time. Grab your hot apple cider and cozy sweater, because you’re going to want to curl up with these shows this fall. 

Grey’s Anatomy

Back for its 900th season (okay 19th), the squad at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital is returning for more drama on October 6. There will be some changes in the new season, however: Meredith Grey, played by Ellen Pompeo, is said to only be appearing in eight episodes. But as you’d expect, there will be plenty of fresh blood at the hospital as a new class of surgeons make their way in.

The Equalizer

Queen Latifah can do no wrong, and she’s back on October 2 for a third season as a CIA operative turned street vigilante known as “The Equalizer.” Don’t miss Lorraine Toussaint (she knocked it out of the park as Vee on “Orange is the New Black”) as Latifah’s wise aunt.

Stream on Paramount Plus


Family drama heads out west in “Yellowstone,” the beloved series about the Dutton family and their Montana ranch. Season 5 is set to return to Paramount on November 13, so grab your cowboy hat and saddle up for the series, which features Kevin Costner as the patriarch of the family. A word to the wise: the drama of the Dutton family is not something you want to miss.

The L Word: Generation Q

A sequel to the original “L Word” series, Generation Q takes several members of the original cast and spices it up with newcomers as they navigate life and love in the Los Angeles LBGTQ+ community. Series bonus points: Margaret Cho and Joey Lauren Adams will appear in the third season, which returns to Showtime on November 18.

Kung Fu

If you dig both martial arts and action-adventure, The CW’s “Kung Fu” might be a win for you. It follows a Chinese-American woman who ditched college for a monastery, only to return to San Francisco to fight crime in the community she was raised in.

Law and Order: SVU

If you haven’t dreamed of solving crimes like Olivia Benson, we can’t relate. Back on NBC for its 24th season on September 22, the classic detective show has endless episodes at your fingertips as you prepare for the new season. If you need the satisfaction of solving a crime in under an hour, an episode of “SVU” scratches that itch.
