As EW’s TV critics, we’ve already weighed in with our six best new shows of the fall, including buzzy series like Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and The Blacklist. But now, we present six more new shows — these ones aren’t necessarily the best, but there is potential in them. Here are the shows we’ll be keeping our eye on this fall.
Premieres Friday, Oct. 25, at 10 p.m. on NBC
The vampire drama has been done to death. But if anyone can bring it back from its shriveled, dehydrated-human-jerky corpse, it’s Jonathan Rhys Meyers, who’s such a pale, slithery nightstalker, it’s easy to believe he actually spends his nights slurping from goblets of Type-A Negative and growing out his fingernails to Nosferatu lengths. So it’s a stroke of genius to cast him as Dracula in this 19th century period drama, which finds our fanged hero posing as an American entrepreneur so that he can seek revenge on the Order of the Dragon, a group of Victorian high-society folks who cursed him long ago. Because Dracula is brought to you by the exec producers of Downton Abbey, there’s also plenty of frilly costumes and forbidden romance: Dracula keeps getting distracted by the beautiful Mina (Jessica DeGouw), who might be the reincarnation of his dead wife. The melodrama is cranked up so high, you can almost see Rhys Meyers stifling laughs. But Dracula’s fight against the rich kids does have a certain 99-percenter timeliness, and the secret-society angle should excite the Comic-Con geeks — especially when Van Helsing shows up. —Melissa Maerz
