The new year is upon us, which also means that some of our favorite shows are returning with brand new seasons. Here are the top 6 shows whose comeback we are most excited about.

1. Orphan Black



Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany plays Sarah Manning, a woman who returns home only to discover that she has several clones and that her life is in danger. The first season of this BBC America science fiction series was pretty fantastic, with a gripping plot, various twists and turns, and plenty of action-packed moments.Orphan Black relies heavily on Maslany’s acting abilities, for her to play several different characters who all look like her but speak differently, carry themselves differently, and have completely different personalities. But, honestly, she is so talented at what she does and the biggest snub of award season was that she wasn’t even nominated for an Emmy. If you haven’t caught up on Orphan Black yet, there’s still time. Marathon the first season (10 episodes) before the season 2 premiere on April 19, 2014.

2. My Mad Fat Diary



Set in ’90s England, My Mad Fat Diary centers on a 16-year-old girl named Rae (Sharon Rooney) who has recently been released from a psychiatric hospital after attempting to take her own life. While struggling with mental health and body image issues – issues that she attempts to keep a secret – Rae makes a whole new group of friends: Archie, the boyish musician keeping a secret of his own, Finn, the brooding bad boy who Rae initially dislikes, Chop, the clownish party animal, and Izzie, the sweet yet ditzy redhead. There’s also Chloe, Rae’s childhood BFF, who’s grown into more of a bitchy frenemy. It’s Rae’s complexities, her honest diary entries, and her relationship with her friends and family that makes My Mad Fat Diary such a must-see.

3. Hannibal



The criminally underrated Hannibal, the brainchild of Pushing Daisies’ Bryan Fuller, is loosely based on Red Dragon, the first book in author Thomas Harris’ Hannibal Lecter series. If you’re at all familiar with the books or movies, then you know that Dr. Hannibal Lecter – first portrayed by Brian Cox in the 1986 movie Manhunter – is a cannibalistic serial killer who aids the police both before and after his inevitable incarceration. In the TV series, Hannibal is played by Danish actor Mads Mikkelsen. Hugh Dancy plays FBI profiler Will Graham, a very troubled character who – thanks to Hannibal – ends up locked away in a mental hospital at the end of the first season.
