Breakdown of ABC’s New & Returning Mid-Season Shows

Ten shows, five brand new and four returning. What do you know about them and are you looking forward to their introduction to the airwaves?

On the side of returning series’, there are the following:

BEYOND THE TANK

As the Sharks travel across America to mentor the entrepreneurs, assess the businesses and provide their industry expertise — to make a profit — audiences will realize the challenges and spirited negotiations are never over. What lies in the aftermath of their investment? Did a promising deal turn sour, or did it lead to millions of dollars in sales?

GALAVANT
Having discovered the dark side of Madalena, our dashing hero’s adventures continue as he embarks on an unlikely bromance with King Richard and fights to rekindle the romance with his true love, Isabella.

MARVEL’S AGENT CARTER
“Marvel’s Agent Carter” returns for a second season of adventure and intrigue, starring Hayley Atwell in the titular role of the unstoppable agent for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve). Dedicated to the fight against new Atomic Age threats in the wake of World War II, Peggy must now journey from New York City to Los Angeles for her most dangerous assignment yet. But even as she discovers new friends, a new home – and perhaps even a new love – she’s about to find out that the bright lights of the post-war Hollywood mask a more sinister threat to everyone she is sworn to protect.

THE BACHELOR
Ben Higgins, the handsome software salesman who was sent home by Kaitlyn Bristowe last season on “The Bachelorette,” confessed to Kaitlyn that he thought he was “unlovable.” Even so, he saw a “great life” with her, only to have his hopes dashed and his heart-broken when he was left without a rose. Now, Ben is ready to open himself up again to love, but he still has the lingering fear of being unlovable. He will attempt to put his heartbreak behind him and overcome that fear as he searches for his one true love and, maybe more importantly, a woman who loves him back.

 

The new shows that will be premiering are:

MY DIET IS BETTER THAN YOURS
Hosted by Shaun T, creator of the workout sensation “Insanity,” the new reality series “My Diet Is Better Than Yours” features celebrity trainers coaching average Americans to lose weight and get in shape. Each trainer brings his/her own individually designed and wildly diverse diet and exercise plan to their contestant, and works with them to change their lives and prove that “My Diet Is Better Than Yours.” In the end, one team will reign victorious.

OF KINGS & PROPHETS

An epic biblical saga of faith, ambition and betrayal as told through the eyes of the battle-weary King Saul, the resentful prophet Samuel and the resourceful young shepherd David — all on a collision course with destiny that will change the world.

One thousand years before Christ, the first king of the Israelites, Saul, struggles to unify the 12 Israelite tribes and defend his fledgling nation against savage enemy attacks. The prophet Samuel relays a message from God to King Saul that he must destroy one of Israel’s ancient enemies. But when Saul defies that message, Samuel prophesies that the Lord will tear the kingdom of Israel from him and choose another in his place. In time, Saul comes to realize that his greatest threat will not come from his enemies, but from the shepherd, David.

THE CATCH
Alice Vaughan (Mireille Enos) is LA’s top private investigator — and the one woman you don’t want to mess with.  But when her fiancé (Peter Krause) cons her out of millions and disappears, Alice goes on a private mission for payback.  No matter where it leads or the secrets she must keep along the way, Alice will stop at nothing to catch her man.

THE FAMILY
This thriller follows the return of a politician’s young son who was presumed dead after disappearing over a decade earlier. As the mysterious young man is welcomed back into his family, suspicions emerge — is he really who he says he is?

THE REAL O’NEALS
A seemingly perfect family’s life takes an unexpected turn when surprising truths are revealed.  Instead of ruining their family, the honesty triggers a new, messier chapter where everyone stops pretending to be perfect and actually starts being real.

 

Which of the returning shows excites you the most? For me, it’s Agent Carter. Can’t wait to see Peggy back on my screen!

And the new shows? Any you just can’t wait to see? I’m finding the premises for The Catch, The Family, and The Real O’Neals to be intriguing. We’ll see how they go!
