Fall TV 2018: New and Returning Shows to Watch

NATIVE AMERICA (PBS, Oct. 23) A four-part series combines archaeology, folklore and modern testimony to create a picture of powerful native civilizations that, centuries ago, were tied together across the length of the Americas by trade, science and a shared system of beliefs.

LEGACIES (CW, Oct. 25) A spin-off of “The Originals,” which was a spin-off of “The Vampire Diaries,” it’s set at the Salvatore School for vampires, werewolves etc. and created by the franchise’s overseer, Julie Plec.

DEUTSCHLAND 86 (SundanceTV, Oct. 25) The three year wait for a second season of this German Cold War spy thriller is equal to the time jump from the first season, which was titled “Deutschland 83.” Jonas Nay and Maria Schrader return as an undercover agent of the Stasi, the East German intelligence service, and his handler, who’s also his aunt. (Maybe they can find out why Sundance is scheduling their show at midnight.)

THE CHILLING ADVENTURES OF SABRINA (Netflix, Oct. 26) Kiernan Shipka, who has experience playing a young person in a creepy situation from her years on “Mad Men,” stars in this updating of “Sabrina the Teenage Witch.” It’s the second Archie Comics adaptation, after “Riverdale,” from Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, the company’s chief creative officer.

PATRIOT ACT WITH HASAN MINHAJ (Netflix, Oct. 28) Mr. Minhaj, the latest “Daily Show” alumnus to get a topical weekly series, has a 32-episode order, the longest Netflix has given.

TELL ME A STORY (CBS, All Access, Oct. 31) Based on a Spanish series, this is another show that feeds traditional fairy tales into the modern content machine — the first season is billed as the “Three Little Pigs,” “Little Red Riding Hood” and “Hansel and Gretel” combined
