All is not well in the Bates household. Norman (Freddie Highmore) is not coping very well with the outside world, and mother Norma (Vera Farmiga) is…well…dead. The final season of this “contemporary prequel” to the classic 1960 suspense film has definitely improved with age. Later this season, a familiar character named Marion Crane (Rihanna) will check in. And as you probably already know, things don’t end well. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 29, on A&E.

Is it Glenn? Maggie? Abraham?, or — heaven help us — Daryl? This zombie drama’s legions of fans have been waiting, and speculating, for six months as to which of the popular characters will meet their end tonight at the hands of Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan). Star Andrew Lincoln said on a recent special that you probably shouldn’t watch the premiere alone. Season premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 23, on AMC.
This fascinating drama about a young cybersecurity engineer/hacker (played by Rami Malek) was a big success during its premiere season last summer. It also won a Golden Globe for best drama. It is honestly unlike anything else on TV, and if you’ve seen any of it, you know what I mean. To be safe, you might want to go and change your computer password, because here comes season 2.0. Season premiere, 10:01 p.m. Wednesday, July 13, on USA.

Like so much TV junk food, this skewering of reality dating competitions (most pointedly “The Bachelor”) is back, and even though you know it’s not good for you, you just can’t stop consuming. Quinn and Rachel (Constance Zimmer and Shiri Appleby) are producers of the fictional dating show “Everlasting” and will stop at nothing to make “good TV” and keep their show on the air. Perfect summertime viewing. Season premiere, 10 p.m. June 6, on Lifetime.
Clone Club is back in session (and now moved from Saturdays to Thursdays)! In the drama’s fourth season, alpha clone Sarah Manning returns from Iceland to track down someone connected to Beth Childs, the clone who started it all. One of the many joys of this series is watching the amazing Tatiana Maslany playing multiple roles (sometimes in the same scene). Season premiere, 10 p.m. Thursday, April 14, on BBC America.
CBS is heralding this, the 32nd edition of the mother of all reality/competition series, as the “most punishing season ever.” The 18 new castaways are divided into three teams, Brains, Brawn and Beauty, as the season begins. And — of course — forever-in-khakis Jeff Probst is back as host. Let the games begin! Season premiere, 8 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 17, on CBS.

When this wonderfully strange legal drama premiered last year, fans of “Breaking Bad” hoped that this prequel would fill the void. But watching Bob Odenkirk’s idealistic Jimmy McGill slowly become “Breaking Bad’s” Saul Goodman is an embarrassment of TV riches. Also, great supporting work from Jonathan Banks, Michael McKean and Rhea Seehorn. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Monday, Feb. 15, on AMC.
