Handmaids to X-Files: when all your favorite shows are coming back

There’s a plethroa of new TV options to catch our eye, but there’s something about old loves that we keep coming back to. Here’s when some fan favorites are returning for new seasons.

The X-Files (Fox, 8 p.m., Jan. 3): One of the most anticipated revivals of 2017, returns for 10 more episodes. Haley Joel Osment will guest star in an episode.

Nashville (CMT, 9 p.m., Jan. 4): After killing Saint Rayna (Connie Britton), the show was never the same. However, we need this final season to say farewell to our favorite country crooners.

Victoria (PBS, 8 p.m., Jan. 14): Second only to Downton Abbey in PBS’s ratings, Victoria stars Jenna Colman as the British queen, and now a new mother.

Grace & Frankie (Netflix, Jan. 19): Lisa Kudrow joins Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda in the fourth season.

Baskets (FX, 10 p.m. Jan. 23): At the end of season 2, Mrs. Baskets (Louie Anderson) purchased the rodeo for her son Chip (Zach Galifianakis) to pursue his clown dreams, again. We’ll be attending the Baskets Family Rodeo. Bring the curly fries.

Schitt’s Creek (Pop, 8 p.m. Jan. 24): As the fourth season returns, catch up on the first three seasons of the comedy from Eugene Levy’s son Daniel. It’s about a once stupidly rich, but still stupid, family adjusting to life in a podunk town.

One Day At A Time (Netflix, Jan. 26): One of the best reviewed reboots from 2017, Norman Lear’s family comedy welcomes us back into the Alvarez household for more laughs.

Unreal (Lifetime, 10 p.m. Feb. 26): The sophomore season about a black suitor didn’t garner acclaim like its first season. The delayed third season about a fake Bachelor-like show will focus on a woman looking for love.

The Good Fight (CBS All Access, March 4): For those of you with CBS All Access accounts, you’re getting one of the best spinoffs in TV history. The best part: Gary Cole and Audra MacDonald join Christine Baranski and Cush Jumbo.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones (Netflix, March 8): The super-strong, hardboiled private investigator defeated her sadistic, mind-controlling enemy in the first season, but the mental wounds he inflicted on Jessica (Krysten Ritter) are far from healed.

The Americans (FX, March): We’ve never been more excited for a final season. This show about Russian spies in 1980s America is truly one of the best series of all time. Stream previous seasons on Amazon to catch up.

The Handmaid’s Tale (Hulu, April): What more can be said about the best reviewed show of 2017? Without source material, Margaret Atwood’s brilliantly created world moves onward, with a little more hope.
