Get Excited for These New Shows This Season Published on September 21, 2016 The temperatures are beginning to cool but primetime television is heating up! Since you will probably be spending more time in your home during the upcoming months, Hammond Plumbing & Heating is here with the series that we’re excited for this season. So get wrapped up with a fuzzy blanket and a cup of apple cider while you nestle in for a TV-packed season. Chicago Justice (Sundays on NBC) It all started with our favorite firefighters and EMTs at Firehouse 51. After we met a team of detectives, including not-as-bad-as-we-thought Sgt. Hank Voight, Chicago P.D. premiered in 2014. Last fall, a group of doctors and nurses in Chicago became the much loved Chicago Med, resulting in suspenseful crossovers with all our Chicago favorites. On Sundays this winter, the network will add Chicago Justice to the list. We met a few of the newcomers on Chicago P.D. last spring and this winter we’ll get to know the team of attorneys and investigators. Dick Wolf has created quite the franchise with his Chicago-based series that interlace and has the potential to take us from the original crime (typically arson), to the investigation (including the Intelligence Unit ran by Voight), to the ones lucky to live and the ones who are unlucky (shown through our group of nurses and doctors), and now complete to the final end where our new heroes will seek justice. 24: Legacy (Sundays on FOX) When we first heard about 24, we immediately heard the “beep, beep, beep” counting down the seconds and our hearts leaped at the notion of Jack Bauer coming back into our televisions. But, as the show says, it is a new day and we have a new hero. Kiefer Sutherland will be an executive producer for at least the first episode, but our new hero is Eric Carter, depicted by Corey Hawkins, a military hero returning to the USA with trouble on his heels. He goes to CTU (yes, it’s back!) for help keeping him safe, while of course thwarting a terrorist attack. The remake of an old favorite will follow the same 24 hour, one episode equals one hour, presentation as before so maybe we can look forward to the awesome countdowns each commercial break. Designated Survivor (Wednesdays on ABC) Just when your heart breaks that you won’t be seeing Jack Bauer in the 24 reboot, your hopes are back because he’ll be back in our lives with a new show and now, instead of helping the president, he is the president. On Designated Survivor, Kiefer Sutherland portrays Tom Kirkman, the Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, who becomes the president after an explosion kills everyone in front of him in the Presidential line of succession. Get excited! This Is Us (Tuesdays on ABC) If you were a fan of Parenthood, analysts say this show is what you’ve been waiting for. This Is Us follows a group of people who are associated by the fact that they share the same birthday. Rebecca (played by Mandy Moore) and Jack (portrayed by Milo Ventimiglia) are a couple getting ready to have three babies on Jack’s 36th birthday. Randall (played by Sterling K. Brown who just earned an Emmy for his depiction of Christopher Darden in The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story) is a man spending his 36th birthday trying to determine whether or not he should make contact with his father who abandoned him when he was born. Kate (played by Chrissy Metz) and Kevin (played by Justin Hartley) are twins who are spending their 36th birthday wrestling with their unsatisfied lives, with Kate focusing on changing her eating habits and Kevin dissatisfied with his current job.
