There are plenty of familiar faces headed back to your TVs this fall!
Big stars like Calista Flockhart, John Stamos and Don Johnson are stepping back into the small screen as leads on some of the best new shows of the season -- and ETonline has your list of everyone you need to get excited about.
1. Calista Flockhart
From a Boston lawyer on Ally McBeal to H.B.I.C. (Head B***h In Charge!) on CBS' Supergirl, Flockhart is back and better than ever. In fact, the actress recently dished to ET about her new character saying, "She's uncompromising, unapologetic, slightly nasty, funny, rich powerful -- all the good things."
Have mercy! The Full House hunkle (that's hunky uncle, natch) is stepping into the role that he, and his perfect head of hair, was born to play in Fox's Grandfathered. "I have always been really attracted to family themes and kids," Stamos dished. "I wanted to sort of come up with a character like me, maybe the guy you think has it all but there is something missing."
3. Rob Lowe
We literally could not be more excited to have Rob Lowe back on our screens since his Parks and Rec departure in early 2014. "It's exciting," Lowe said of his new role on Fox's The Grinder. "I love this show. I was looking for a really worthy successor Parks and Rec because I really love that show so much, and I feel like The Grinder is that show."
4. The Muppets
We all know it's not easy being green, but it's also been pretty difficult living without a Muppets TV show for all these years. Luckily, ABC is bringing all of your favorite muppets -- yes even Animal! -- back into our lives on a weekly basis.
We fell in love with him as Zack on Saved by the Bell, and now, Gosselaar is stepping into an edgier role on NBC's upcoming comedy Truth Be Told. "Our show is going to tackle things that people are always thinking about but never really talk about or afraid to talk about -- race, religion, politics, porn," the former Bayside babe explained.
6. Don Johnson
The Miami Vice vet is back on prime-time as the lead in ABC's newest soapy drama, Blood and Oil. The series is already being called "the next Dallas" and that's a comparison Johnson is very happy with. "Listen, if we are fortunate enough to be on the air as long as Dallas was, that wouldn't be a bad thing would it?" Johnson said.
7. Chace Crawford
Also joining Johnson on Blood and Oil is former Gossip Girl guy Chace Crawford. The 30-year-old actor confessed that he was eager to be a part of the new ABC drama. "To be honest it was one of the best pilots I had read. Ever," he said. "And it was so different from what I did. It was different from that whole world."
