The holiday season is over and a new year is upon us, which means it’s time for winter television! While some of our favorite shows remain on break, check out our list of television’s winter 2016 premiere dates!

Kicking off the winter 2016 premiere dates is one of our favorites from last year, Galavant! ABC will feature back-to-back episodes of the comedy, with a promising first episode entitled “A New Season… aka Suck It Cancellation Bear.” Meanwhile Fox will kick off the new year with new series Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life and Bordertown.

Other winter 2016 premiere dates we’re especially excited about are New Girl and Teen Wolf on January 5, Marvel’s Agent Carter on January 19, Legends of Tomorrow and The 100 on January 21, and The X-Files on January 24!
