    A new year means another season of #PeakTV — and that's an exhausting thought.

    With all the amazing shows around, it can be tough to find time to watch everything you need to so as not to feel out of the loop. Who wants to be that person who's not up to date on Scandal? Or worse yet, Game of Thrones? (The night is dark and full of spoilers.)

    So to make keeping up with TV a less onerous task, we've rounded up all the premiere dates of your favorite shows, as well as the shiny new series your friends and coworkers will be buzzing about come winter.

    From the final season of Girls to Jude Law's papal debut, here are the 2017 shows we're already excited to binge. Mark your calendars — winter is coming.

    Sherlock

    Our favorite sexy sleuth is back for the show's final season. Will you tune in? Elementary, my dear Watson. (That's Sherlock for "you damn well better.")

    The Bachelor
    Season 21 premieres January 2, 2017 on ABC.

    Nick Viall is a Bachelor veteran. This is the fourth time the 35-year-old will be searching for love on national television. So far, he's struck out, but it will definitely be interesting to see who — if anyone — he ends up with.

    “I don’t want to pick someone because they’re the last woman standing,” Viall told People. “My biggest fear isn’t necessarily getting my heart broken. It’s not finding the right one.”

    Get ready for scandal, drama, tears, and Nick Viall's bare chest.

    Star
    Premieres January 4, 2017 on FOX.

    This musical drama created by Lee Daniels and Tom Donaghy has been hailed as the next Empire. It stars Jude Demorest, Ryan Destiny and Brittany O'Grady as three Atlanta singers who must figure out what it takes to make it in the business. Oh, and did I mention Queen Latifah co-stars?

    Taboo
    Miniseries premieres January 10, 2017 on FX.

    This eight-part miniseries starring Tom Hardy is actually a remake of a British show from 2002. (Of course. What isn't a British remake these days?) Hardy stars as James Keziah Delaney, an adventurer thought to be dead who returns to Britain after the death of his father to take over the family shipping business.

    Fun fact: Chips Hardy, Tom's dad, helped create the series.
