1. The Blacklist – Returns Monday, January 13th on NBC, 10 pm
This show left us with so many questions before the winter hiatus! I don’t want to give anything away (SPOILER ALERT), but WHAT DOES RED MEAN HE’S NOT LIZ’S FATHER?!!!!!!! Now that I’ve got that off my chest…does anyone believe he’s telling the truth? Who’s the mole in the FBI that gave away Red’s location? What’s up with Liz’s creepy husband? Who has been watching Liz and her hubby from that house across the street? Will Red be out for blood following the Anslo Garrick episodes? All these questions will hopefully be answered when The Blacklist returns on January 13th.
The suspense is killing me!

2. American Horror Story – Coven Returns Wednesday, January 8th on FX, 10 pm
I’m still recovering from the bloodbath that was Episode 9! With Season 3 coming to a close on January 29th, AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy has confirmed that a major character will die and that fans should keep an eye out for the Stevie Nicks’ episode which will feature the songstress and obsessed fan/swamp witch Misty Day (Lily Rabe) making sweet music together.
I’m not sure how they are going to wrap up everything. We still need closure to the Kyle (Evan Peters), Madison (Emma Roberts), and Zoe (Taissa Farmiga) triangle. We need to know what’s going to happen with the witch hunters. Will Fiona (Jessica Lange) and Marie Laveau (Angela Bassett) maintain their truce? Will Fiona even make it to the end of the season? Who is the next supreme?
Man…I’m full of questions, huh?

3. The Following – Returns January 19th on FOX, 9 pm
This was my absolute favorite show of 2013 and it returns January 19th to a cult divided. With the presumed (SPOILER ALERT) death of Joe Carroll (James Purefoy) and almost all of the major players of Season 1 dead (minus Emma), Ryan Harding (Kevin Bacon) is apparently getting his life back on track and even cracking a smile! He’s teaching and seems to be in relatively good spirits! But drama is not far away from Ryan’s doorstep when Joe Carroll’s followers slaughter a bunch of passengers on a local train.
Last season we learned that Joe’s folks are everywhere: law enforcement, the chick reading the magazine at the newsstand, and even your neighbor! I can’t wait to see what’s in store this season.
Be sure to tune into Season 2 of The Following to find out what happens to Joe and Claire (Natalie Zea)! I’m told we should know their fates pretty much in the very beginning of the episode.

4. Nashville Returns Wednesday, January 15th on ABC, 10 pm
This is a guilty pleasure of mine. I’m still pining for my 90210/Melrose Place days…and I’m talking about the originals, not those junky remakes from a few years ago! Thankfully, Nashville fits the bill! When we last saw Rayna (Connie Britton) and crew, they were attending a music festival and facing near-death experiences! I’m interested to see whether (SPOILER ALERT) Will (Chris Carmack) or scheming Peggy (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) survives their encounter with the Grim Reaper. I’m also looking to see whether Juliette (Hayden Panettiere) plans on telling Avery (Jonathan Jackson) the truth about her feelings for him and whether we can expect Deacon (Chip Esten) to give his lawyer lady love the boot in favor of our favorite country diva!

5. Dracula – Returns Friday, January 3rd on NBC, 10 pm
I will be the first to admit that the jury is still out on this one. I’m a huge fan of Jonathan Rhys Meyers ever since he began stripping down as King Henry VIII on Showtime’s series, The Tudors. But this show has proven to be a bit slow and a little high brow for most audiences. But there was a slight glimmer of hope right before the winter break. We see Mina (Jessica De Gouw) fend off her bestie Lucy (Katie McGrath) who clearly wants to be more than friends, Grayson (Dracula) attends a board meeting in daylight – temporarily avoiding suspicion of why he’s never out and about in the sunlight, and Harker (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) may finally see that his employer (Grayson) wants more than his hard work and effort…namely he wants his wife Mina!
Perhaps there’s hope for this series after all! You can find out more about Dracula on NBC at: http://www.nbc.com/dracula/.
