Luckily, the mid-season hiatus will be over in just a few weeks, and everything from Modern Family to How To Get Away With Murder will be returning with a vengeance. Along with our favorite TV shows, the networks are giving us a lot of new material as well. Take a look at some of the most anticipated new series headed our way this winter. Also, be sure to check out the 2016 TV Winter Premiere schedule in full below.

Let’s see how the network formally known as ABC Family does with this beloved YA story.

Sunday, January 24thThe X-Files 8PM ET FOX

As one of the few reboots coming our way in 2016, Fox has revamped the ’90s fan favorite The X-Files (which is still the longest running sci-fi TV series in history) as a six-episode mini-series. The show will follow the original leads, David Duchovny as Fox Mulder and Gillian Anderson as Dana Scully, as they try to explain what can not be explained. If you’ve never seen it before, the entire series is now streaming on Netflix.

Monday, January 25th Lucifer 9PM ET FOX

Tuesday, February 2nd AMERICAN CRIME STORY: The PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON 10PM ET FX

Produced by Ryan Murphy, The People v. O.J. Simpson is the first season of FX’s new anthology crime series American Crime Story. This first season will chronicle the murder trail of former NFL star O.J. Simpson which took place in 1995. With Ryan Murphy’s name on this series we already known that is worth the watch. However, with Cuba Gooding Jr. portraying Simpson along side of Sarah Paulson, John Travolta and a long list of others starring in the series, including Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, we know this will be a wild ride.

February 26th Fuller House 12AM PT  Netflix

The reboot of the ’90s classic Full House is headed our way February 26th, and those who are nostalgic for the Tanners and the ’90s couldn’t be more thrilled. Most of the original cast will be returning for Fuller House. The series will follow D.J. who is a recently widowed veterinarian and Stephanie (who is now a musician) who moves in with her big sis to help her with her three kids (sound familiar?).

The Catch, follows a fraud investigator Alice Vaughan, (played by Mireille Enos) who realizes that her fiancé is conning her.
