Global’s fall fare to take viewers back to 90210
Class will be back in session at West Beverly High, and heroes will return to save the world starting in September.
Global’s fall slate is peppered with new offerings as well as some returning faves.
Canwest’s flagship channel is set to introduce a new generation of fans to West Beverly High School. Launching with a two-hour series premiere, 90210 (pictured) – a contemporary spinoff of ’90s fan fave Beverly Hills 90210 – follows Annie Mills (Shenae Grimes, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and her brother Dixon (Tristan Wilds, The Wire) as they navigate those mean high school halls. The two-hour premiere will air at a special time on September 2, 8 pm ET/PT, but subsequent episodes will run on Tuesdays at 9 pm ET/PT.
Returning for a fourth season is Prison Break with a two-hour season premiere on September 1 at 8 pm ET/PT. And, marking a third consecutive night of two-hour premieres, the opener of the fourth season of Bones will arrive on September 3 at 8 pm ET/PT. Heroes will be back on Global after a long hiatus with its third season kickoff, a two-hour premiere on September 22 at 9 pm ET/PT.
The Ex-List is a new series that will premiere on Global on October 3 at 9 pm ET/PT. The show follows 30-something business owner Bella Bloom (Grey’s Anatomy‘s Elizabeth Reaser) as she searches for her future husband after being told by a psychic that she has already dated him and must find him within a year or remain alone forever.
Global will unveil the series premiere of Life on Mars, based on the award-winning BBC series, on October 9 at 10 pm ET/PT. The show follows a police detective (Jason O’Mara, Men in Trees) who, after a crash, is transported back through time to 1973. As well, My Own Worst Enemy stars Christian Slater (Bobby, The Good Shepherd) as an ordinary bloke who just happens to share his body with a super-spy. The series premieres on Global on October 13 at 10 pm ET/PT.
Season premiere dates were also announced for more returning favourites, including the second season of the originally Canadian The Guard (October 29 at 10 pm ET/PT), House (September 16 at 8 pm ET/PT), Brothers & Sisters (September 28, 10 pm ET/PT) and Survivor: Gabon (September 18, 8 pm ET/PT).
