Complete 2014 Midseason TV Premiere Dates List

The new year of television is officially kicking off tonight! It kind of snuck up on me, so it’s likely that it snuck on on some of you fair Invaders as well. Since we’re only a few hours away from brand spanking new television, I’ll keep this fairly brief. Check out my TV recommendations and the complete list of premiere dates below, for returning and new shows, and let us know in the comments what you’ll be watching this season!

New Show Recommendations:

Killer Women (ABC) – While the commercials seem to be focused on the fact that Modern Family’s Sofia Vergera is producing it, the actual plot of the show sounds intriguing. Plus, it stars Tricia Helfer (Six from Battlestar Galactica) so I’m already on board.

Helix (SyFy) – Speaking of Battlestar Galactica, that series creator is returning to television and SyFy with this horror/sci-fi show. The trailer had me on the edge of my seat, reminding me of the horror classic John Carpenter’s The Thing.

Returning Shows You Should Catch Up On:

Bates Motel (A&E) – This moody prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho took a while to find its groove, but about halfway through season 1 I couldn’t stop watching. After letting it pile up on the DVR, I marathoned through its last story arc in a day and can’t wait for its return. Season 2 looks to have a lot of promise with added guest stars like Michael Vartan (Alias) and Kenny Johnson (Sons of Anarachy).

The Americans (FX) – There’s a reason this made our Best TV Shows of 2013 list.

The Mindy Project (Fox) – While this didn’t make the official Screen Invasion Best of TV list, it does top mine. This show week after week excels beyond its predecessor (New Girl) and has become so much more than its first season. And plus side for this one being on my list, you don’t actually need to watch all of it before the new episodes. It definitely took most of its first season to find its voice and make Mindy a annoying and likable character, so feel free to just jump to the beginning of this season or tune in live.
