Caitlin Petrakovitz studies the Marvel Cinematic Universe like it's a course in school, with an emphasis on the Infinity Saga years. As an audience expert, she rarely writes but when she does it's most certainly about Star Trek, Marvel, DC, Westworld, San Diego Comic-Con and great streaming properties. Or soccer, that's a thing she loves, too.

'MacGyver,' CBS

Everyone's favorite clandestine fixer is back! Here's Angus "Mac" MacGyver (right, Lucas Till) with his mentor/partner Lincoln, played by George Eads ("CSI").

2 of 28 Neil Jacobs/CBS

Mac is a 20-something this time, just out to save the world with some bubble gum -- and a little bit of luck. "MacGyver" will air at 8 p.m. Fridays this fall on CBS.

'Bull,' CBS

Loosely based on Dr. Phil McGraw's life before "Dr. Phil," "Bull" stars Michael Weatherly.

4 of 28 CBS

Dr. Bull is a pitbull of a jury consultant. Obviously he got his name base don his...resemblance to the dog?

5 of 28 David M. Russell/CBS

Supposedly, he uses tech and human psychology to determine the way a jury swings. "Bull" is set to air at 9 p.m. Tuesdays this fall.

'The Great Indoors,' CBS

Joel McHale is a very rugged outdoorsman plopped in the city and made to work with some millennials who believe that everyone deserves a participation trophy. The horror. Currently, it will premiere at 8:30 p.m. on October 27.

7 of 28 Sonja Flemming, CBS

'Pure Genius,' CBS

A(nother) series about a tech millionaire trying to use his money to be way more philanthropic than the rest of probably would be, "Pure Genius" is about one built a high-tech, futuristic hospital with his money.

8 of 28 Bill Inoshita, CBS

The show stars Augustus Prew as the titular "Genius" James Bell.

9 of 28 Sonja Flemming, CBS

'Emerald City,' NBC

The reimagining of "The Wizard of Oz" seems like "The Fall" meets "Once Upon a Time." Pictured is Florence Kasumba, who plays East (I guess the Wicked Witch part is implied).

11 of 28 Rico Torres/NBC

Oliver Jackson (left) stars as Lucas, a character I definitely don't remember from "Wizard of Oz" so I have no idea why he's here. And on the right is Adria Arjona as Dorothy. Between the two is, I imagine, an updated Toto the K9 dog.

'The Good Place,' NBC

Ted Danson stars in "The Good Place," about heaven and a case of mistaken identity. The comedy also stars Kristen Bell and is currently set to air at 8:30 p.m. on Thursdays this fall on NBC.

'Midnight, Texas,' NBC

In what sounds like a less-nude version of "True Blood" (oh, and set in Texas), "Midnight, Texas" stars Francois Arnaud (right) as Manfred.

14 of 28 NBC

Jason Lewis (you might recognize him as Smith from "Sex & the City" -- it's easier with his shirt off) as Joe Strong, who lives in the small strange town.

15 of 28 NBC

Arielle Kebbel stars as Olivia, with Peter Mensah as Lemuel the vampire. A time slot or start date for NBC's "Midnight, Texas" has not yet been announced.

16 of 28 Chris Large/NBC

'Powerless,' NBC

"Powerless" is about everyday lives in a superhero world. Vanessa Hudgens is Emily Locke, an insurance claims adjuster for super-related disasters, seen here with Crimson Fox (Atlin Mitchell).

17 of 28 Chris Large/NBC

Danny Pudi plays Teddy -- that's all we know for now. "Powerless" also stars Alan Tudyk.

18 of 28 Joe Lederer/NBC

'Timeless,' NBC

From left to right: Malcolm Barrett as Rufus Carlin, Matt Lanter as Wyatt Logan, and Abigail Spencer as Lucy Preston. I think that's their time-travel device behind them? It's mighty big -- how do they hide that in the past?

19 of 28 Joe Lederer/NBC

Spencer ("Suits") plays a professor who's the only person they can turn to for help stopping time-terrorist Goran Visnjic. Feels a little "The Blacklist"-y for me, but we'll see.

20 of 28 Joe Lederer/NBC

Between Lucy and Wyatt creeps Paterson Joseph as Connor Mason. "Timeless" is set for 10 p.m. Mondays this fall on NBC.

21 of 28 Chuck Hodes/FOX

'A.P.B.,' FOX

Millionaire Gideon Reeves (Justin kirk) buys himself a police precinct because millionaires amirite?

22 of 28 FOX

'The Exorcist,' FOX

Ever see the 1970s horror film? Great, you're all caught up.

23 of 28 Chuck Hodes/FOX

Geena Davis (left) stars as the matriarch of the Rance family, and the one who pleads with Father Tomas (Alfonso Herrera) for his help. "The Exorcist" will air 9 p.m. on Fridays this fall on Fox.

24 of 28 Qantrell Colbert/FOX

'Making History,' FOX

Adam Pally (wearing the bear skin) and Leighton Meester (not wearing the bear skin) star in the time-traveling, mind-bending show about three people who are desperately trying not to screw up history.

25 of 28 Qantrell Colbert/FOX

The show also stars Yassir Lester ("Girls") as the history professor Pally recruits to help right his historical wrongs. "Making History" is set for midseason at 8:30 p.m. on Sundays on Fox.

26 of 28 FOX

'Son of Zorn,' FOX

Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) and Alangulon (Johnny Pemberton) are just bros, ya know? Chilling. In the driveway with a mountain bird. Which'll be dead by the end of the trailer.

27 of 28 FOX

"Son of Zorn" stars Cheryl Hines ("Curb Your Enthusiasm") as Zorn's ex-wife who seems none-too-pleased with Zorn's sudden new take on parenting. Tim Meadows (left, "Saturday Night Live") plays Hines' fiancee.

28 of 28 FOX

After a tumultuous marriage, Zorn has returned to the promised land -- the 'burbs -- to parent his vegetarian son and reconnecting with his ex-wife. "Son of Zorn" is set to air at 8:30 p.m. Sundays this fall on Fox.
