We’ve gotten quite excited over this list of January 2015 Mid-Season Series Premieres & New Seasons. The beginning of the year is a big deal for television and this year it’s no wonder why. The first week opens up with a sixth season of Ridiculousness on MTV, a second adventurous season with Mysteries at the Castle on the Travel Channel; new seasons of The Mentalist, The Good Wife and Downtown Abbey kick off Sunday nights starting January 4th; The Bachelor and Antiques Roadshow making their 19th year premiere (who saw THAT correlation??); Marvel’s Agent Carter making it’s debut on ABC; Pretty Little Liars, Cougar Town and Real Husbands of Hollywood returning for sexy Tuesday nights; A&E’s Wahlburgers and Duck Dynasty gracing us with their presence on Wednesdays; Archer and Portlandia giving the laughs on Thursday nights, and Glee returning for a one-hour first episode on Friday the 9th.

The second Sunday of the month, January 11th, brings us the season premiere of Shameless on Showtime, along with the fourth seasons of House of Lies and Episodes. HBO reluctantly premieres a fourth season of Girls, as well as the series premiere of Togetherness from writer/actor Mark Duplass (Safety Not Guaranteed) and a new season of the out and open male singles dramedy Looking.

The rest of the month offers some great renewals and premieres such as the modern day wild mid-western Justified on FX, a TV adaptation of 12 Monkeys starring Aaron Stanford (CW’s Nikita) as James Cole, Netflix’s The Fall pulling us down and taking Gillian Anderson with it, espionage-driven The Americans also on FX, and Suits on USA finally back after a long hiatus. We also get a new installment of Black Sales, the thrilling Caribbean pirate story on STARZ, and Thursdays get scandalous with ABC’s How To Get Away With Murder and Scandal back to back starting January 29th.
