As an aspiring screenwriter and television writer, I make a post like this every year to keep everyone abreast of what shows are currently inspiring me. It’s my hope that others will follow along and maybe reach out to discuss the shows. But this year, I made a decision: I’m taking a different approach to my 2014–2015 TV schedule.

My 2013–2014 schedule was split into different posts for each season part (summer, fall, spring/winter) and then organized by day. However, since I list only the shows I plan on watching for the next year of TV programming, it makes sense to organize the schedule not by season part or by day but by show, alphabetized. So this is the one place to come for scheduling information and the basics on all the shows that I plan to watch in 2014 and early 2015.

So, without further ado…

What’s renewed, and for how many episodes? Here is my 2014–2015 TV schedule:

*NOTE: Just because a show is listed as having two season parts doesn’t mean it will. I’m simply pre-empting the possibility for shows that could end up airing this way. Cable has been doing this for a while, but it seems to be a trend in broadcast lately as well, with shows like Once Upon a Time airing in two parts in 2013–2014.

Last words

So far, the above list features only returning shows. Of the new shows airing in 2014–2015, I’m especially interested in Gotham (FOX), which will air in fall 2014, and American Crime (ABC), which will air as an 11-episode series in winter/spring 2015. I may watch them but will probably wait until spring/summer 2015 to get started. The Flash (CW), airing in the fall, looks decent as well, but I’ll probably wait on that for a while just like I have been with Arrow and several other shows.

That’s it for my 2014–2015 TV schedule. I’ll be making updates to this page throughout the year.

Don’t be shy; comment! Let me know what you think of these shows throughout the season. What will you be watching?
