10 TV Events to Look Out For in May

April showers bring May… TV premieres? OK, so that’s not exactly how the saying goes, but either way, we’re getting a lot of new and returning television this month. Unfortunately, May is technically the end of the 2013-2014 TV season, so there are a lot of sad finales — New Girl, Revenge, Mad Men, Trophy Wife, etc. — but there’s also more than enough new stuff to keep you busy.

Television has become nostalgic for its own past: giving sitcoms to Sean Hayes and Michael J. Fox, unnecessarily rebooting Heroes, dangerously mentioning Lost reboot in passing, and, as of May 5, bringing Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) back to our television sets. 24: Live Another Day is a limited event series, 12 episodes total, set four years after the end of the last season. If you want to re-watch it all, the full original series is available on Amazon Instant Video and will only take you six days and two hours.
