Just because it’s soon to be the new fall season, doesn’t mean it’s the new freshman series that get to have all the casting fun as some of the most watched returning series have bolstered their ranks in a big way. From supporting characters who will make a big impact to new series regulars you’ll be seeing every week, here are the ones you need to keep an eye out for this fall.
11. How To Get Away With Murder
New addition: Famke Janssen
One thing everyone knows about a Shonda Rhimes show is that there will always be a lot you don’t know until you’re watching. The notoriously anti-spoiler showrunner likes her fans to be fully surprised and with the twists and turns she pulls out, it is clear why.
As her latest success story, How To Get Away With Murder, rolls into season two, we don’t know a lot about what to expect, except that Famke Janssen will play a key role in the show’s opening episodes. The former Goldeneye and X-Men star will take on a recurring role but, beyond that, it’s a mystery. Janssen follows in the footsteps of last season’s big name guests including Marcia Gay Harden and Cicely Tyson (who is up for a Emmy for her role as the no-nonsense mother of lead Viola Davis). Expect more names to come out as we get closer to premiere, but if Janssen’s any indication of where producers are looking for talent, then we should be in for a fun ride.Photo by Broadimage/REX
