Where Season 3 left off: Jamie’s (Will Estes) partner Vinny (Sebastian Sozzi) was shot and killed. Mayor Poole (David Ramsey) ate a bullet, too, but survived. Unfortunately, he was forced to surrender his office to public advocate Grace Newhouse (Joanna Gleason), whose first order of business was to threaten Frank’s (Tom Selleck) job if he didn’t find who ordered the hit. Thanks to good policing from sons Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) and Jamie, Frank learned the man responsible was hiding in The Bitterman Projects and had them raided. The Reagans got their man, of course, and celebrated with a beach vacation.

The Carrie Diaries, Friday, Oct. 25 at 8 p.m. ET, on City and The CW
Where Season 1 left off: Although for the majority of the season Carrie (AnnaSophia Robb) couldn’t help but wonder what was underneath Sebastian’s (Austin Butler) clothes, she decided not to lose her V card to him after prom.

Grimm, Friday, Oct. 25, 9 p.m. ET on CTV/NBC
Where Season 2 left off: A zombie apocalypse overran Portland, as Baron Samedi (Reg. E.

Wo Fat agreed to tell Steve everything, but only if he protected him from the men blowtorching their way into his cell.

Last Man Standing, Friday, Sept. 20, 8 p.m. ET on ABC
Where Season 2 left off: The show spent much of its sophomore season attempting to inject some political strife and stronger views into its storylines. Mike (Tim Allen) and his family found themselves in a variety of traditional sitcom situations, with themes like dating, bullying and whether or not dodgeball is actually a dangerous sport. By the season finale, Mandy (Molly Ephraim) had been accepted to two colleges, but seemed determined to take a year off.

As for Frankie (Patricia Heaton) and Mike (Neil Flynn), they managed to survive the craziness of Frankie’s career change, their decision to relive their youth, a day dedicated to each of their kids and several new small destructions to their house.

The Neighbors, Friday, Sept. 20, 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC
Where Season 1 left off: The Weavers found themselves teaching their alien neighbours about a variety of human situations, including Halloween, camping, musicals, weddings and perhaps most memorably, The Real Housewives.

Raising Hope, Friday, Nov. 8, 9 p.m. ET on City and Fox
Where Season 3 left off: The Chances put on a jewsical as Burt (Garret Dillahunt) got in touch with his not-so-Jewish roots, finally finishing something for the first time in his life. In two motherly storylines, Maw Maw (Cloris Leachman) made up with her own mother (Cloris Leachman in bad makeup), and Virginia (Martha Plimpton) became closer with Sabrina (Shannon Woodward) after the latter decided to share Hope’s (Baylie/Rylie Cregut) No.1 Mom necklace.

Shark Tank, Friday, Sept. 20, 9 p.m. ET on CTV Two/ABC
