When do my shows come back? The winter TV schedule

Winter TV: Roseanne, The Chi, Electric Dreams and more new shows to keep us warm this season

Winter TV

Winter is a time for sweaters, hot drinks and adding new TV shows to our never-ending lists. Just kidding. We know it's Florida, and we won't be snowed in. But let us live. We have a lot of TV to watch.

And after a dull fall season — good luck to all those superhero shows — it's time for a fresh start. Each new year brings hopeful resolutions and starry-eyed dreams of the future. Looking ahead to this season's small-screen arrivals, we could be in luck. Our TV recommendations and wish list:

More diverse voices

True crime with modern relevance

All the feels

Sci-fi goes mainstream

Return to teen life

Good revivals

Give us more period shows

Beloved actors return

Focus on quality, not quantity
