10 Biggest TV Premieres in 2016

From 'Bates Motel' to 'Big Freedia' and all the reboots you can handle, these are the must tune-in (or must binge-watch) premieres coming to your screen this year

1 / 10

'House of Cards' (March 4)

President Frank Underwood, back on Netflix in a presidential election year? Yes, please. Although the drama’s third season was a bit more muted, expect the intensity to return to Washington as our (anti-)hero tries to save his marriage while winning an election.

2 / 10

'Bates Motel' (March 9)

Bates Motel re-opens in March after the pre-Psycho story got absolutely bone-chilling by Season 3's end. This time it looks like we're going to see Norman go full Norma on us, and get insight as to what ultimately sealed the mother and son's fate. Hopefully this is the season the underrated A&E show gets some love at the award shows, too—Vera Farmiga is absolutely brilliant as the overbearing-yet-deranged Ms. Bates.

'Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce'

Season 4 of Big Freedia: Queen of Bounce brought the drama (a break-up with Freedia's longtime boyfriend) while the New Orleans icon continued to break boundaries (landing a book deal, performing in new countries). Season 5 of Fuse's biggest show to date should continue the wild narrative as the MC preps a new album and continues to dive further into the mainstream. Click here to watch full episodes of the series.

'Game of Thrones' (April)

Season 6 of the smash hit is an especially tantalizing one, now that George R.R. Martin’s book series has been lapped by the show and readers know as few answers as plain old viewers. Season five wrapped up with a major death…but judging by recent teasers and posters, that characters won’t stay dead for long.

5 / 10

'Inside Amy Schumer' (April)

Amy Schumer is bigger than ever and with the news that Comedy Central already picked up the comedian's series for a fifth season ahead of its Season 4 premiere in April, we're thinking the best is yet to come. There were a few superstar cameos in Season 4, but we're expecting even more this time, along with Schumer's bitingly poignant take on society. 

6 / 10

'Transcendent'

After winning our hearts in their premiere season, the beautiful badass women of Transcendent are back for round two. While we got our healthy dose of it last time, this year we're expecting a lot more drama and even more fabulousness from Bambiana, Bionka, L.A., Nya, and Xristina...though rumor has it there might some fresh faces joining the lineup for Season 2. Catch up on Season 1 of the show right here.

7 / 10

'Mr. Robot'

The USA Network birthed one of 2015’s most prestigious shows, with the hacktivist drama quickly becoming a cult hit and earning a slew of award nominations. Details of the second season are scarce, but we’ll be waiting patiently.

8 / 10

'Fluffy Breaks Even'

Gabriel Iglesias and co. were a hit in 2015, offering a new perspective on comedy to a wide-ranging audience. Fluffy Breaks Even will be back in 2016 for season two: Click here to explore the acclaimed first season!

Watch a clip from the first season above now!

9 / 10

'The X-Files' (January 24)

Thirteen years have passed since the original X-Files run wrapped, but the truth, as they say, is still out there. A two-night mega-event is coming to Fox beginning Jan. 24, with David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson reprising their iconic roles and (hopefully) wrapping up some loose ends.

10 / 10

'Fuller House' (February 26)

The house will once again be full as Netflix revives one of the '90s most beloved sitcoms when Fuller House premieres in late February. A majority of the original Full House cast is on board (though you won't see Mary-Kate and Ashley reprising their role as Michelle Tanner) and the show's new premise very much recalls the original. Expect feel-good themes, ridiculous humor, and more Kimmy Gibler than ever. Check out some brand new photos here.
