Television series have a following of their own. A fan can miss his dinner, but not a new show of his favourite Bones, or Glee. Here is listing your favourite shows and how they are set to return on your screens this year!
The much loved and much followed crime drama, Bones, is an intriguing depiction of the fields of forensics and crime investigation merging together. Forensic anthropologist, Dr. Temperance 'Bones' Brennan, played by Emily Deschanel and FBI Special Agent Seeley Booth played by David Boreanaz tackle a new FBI case file in every episode, trying to solve and make sense of the ambiguity of human remains they are faced with.
The series has a successful run of seven seasons with an overwhelming average of 9.8 million viewers per season. The fan-favourite series has layered entertainment for its viewers with crime-solving as one subject and the personal relationships of the characters on the other.

The psychological thriller and crime drama, Dexter- first premiered in 2006, has created a niche following for itself and caters to a huge fan following. After having a successful stint of six seasons, Dexter, played by Michael C Hall is a story set in Miami about a blood spatter pattern analyst who works with the police department to solve murder mysteries.

With two layers running in the story, there are love affairs, hide-and-seek, police politics and suspense that keep the viewers wanting for more. All set to return with its seventh season in September this year, the IMDB 9.1 rated show is only going to get better.

Where the four scientists score in geek-dom and intelligence, Penny is a specialist in social skills and commom sense. This uncanny contrast creates situations where the actors are stuck funnily.Breaking Bad
