Still grieving over the end of Game of Thrones? Well, have no fear, Autumn is here which means networks, premium channels and streaming services are bringing back some of your favorite sitcoms, reality shows and dramas (yes, we mean you, This Is Us) and introducing a bunch of new series they hope viewers will "fall" in love with in the upcoming moths. This also means fresh faces and new characters: superheroes and the villains who hate them, socialites, social climbers, cops, Special Ops and shady millionaires will be making their big debuts. One thing they all have in common is they're hotter than a pumpkin spice latte. We've compiled a list of the best of the best -- the 10 sexiest new characters of 2017. So, throw on a turtleneck, snuggle up and enjoy!
Fall 2017 Calendar: Premiere Dates for New and Returning Shows>>>
10. Kevin Finn, Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (ABC)
Kevin Finn (Jason Ritter) is a self-involved, materialistic jerk (be still my heart), but thanks to some divine intervention, Kevin learns he has a higher purpose -- to save humanity. So, as Kevin embarks on his journey to become a good person, he's sure to woo viewers with his selfless acts in the process. Don't let us down Kevin, mankind (and womankind) are counting on you.
9. Medusa, Marvel's Inhumans (ABC)
The name Medusa usually conjures up the image of a mythological creature with live snakes instead of hair, and a face so horrifying it turns men to stone. This is not that Medusa. Inhuman's
Medusa (Serinda Swan) is a queen, and her crown is long red mane that isn't all show and no go -- it's also the source of her powers. In addition to her loyalty, strength and enviable locks, Medusa is a loving wife and very... amorous (viewers' first peek at the first lady of Attilan proves to be very revealing.)
8. Hiram Lodge, Riverdale (The CW)
Daddy's coming home, girls, and he's sure to throw Veronica's and Hermione's lives into further chaos. Hiram Lodge (Mark Consuelos) may be shady, but he's also handsome, charismatic and resourceful (how else could he swindle money from all those people?) It's unlikely Hermione will be able to resist her estranged husband's charms and neither will fans.
7. Reign, Supergirl (The CW)
There's a new villain in town, Reign (Odette Annable), and she's ready to rule National City. The comic book version of Reign has a face only a mother could love (although her bosom is impressively ample.) But with Annable taking on the role, the live-action Reign promises to be one smokin' hot mean girl. For those who find Kara's unrelenting sweetness a little... dull, Reign, a Krypton-born baddie, is sure to liven things up. The big question is just how scantily-clad she'll be while doing it.
6. Adam Dalton, The Brave (NBC)
Captain Adam Dalton (Mike Vogel) is head of a Special Ops squad comprised of the best the U.S. military has to offer (think Mission Impossible.) Their job is to fight the bad guys and protect the innocent. Dalton is ruggedly handsome with a permanent five o' clock shadow, presumably because he's so busy rescuing people he doesn't have time to shave. Dalton is compassionate, cool under pressure, loves dogs and kids and likes to play soccer with his shirt off -- enough said.
5. Cristal Carrington, Dynasty (The CW)
Cristal Carrington (Nathalie Kelley) isn't your stereotypical trophy wife. Yes, she's gorgeous, young and married to a man who runs a global energy empire. But she's also smart, driven and genuinely in love with her rich husband (the crazy-sexy couple likes to indulge in the occasional nooner on hubby's desk.) Cristal isn't afraid to get dirty outside the bedroom, so those who are eager to oust Cristal from Atlanta's high-society by digging the skeletons out of her expansive closet better watch out (yes, the male fantasy of two sexy women engaged in a catfight is likely to become a reality.) Cristal is the woman every man wants, and other women want out of the way.
4. Daniel "Hondo" Harrelson, S.W.A.T. (CBS)
What do you really need to know about Hondo (Shemar Moore)? He's the leader of a Los Angeles S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons and Tactics) team who finds himself "torn between loyalty to where he was raised and allegiance to his brothers in blue." More importantly, he likes to take steamy showers with his boss, work up a sweat boxing at the gym and flex his very impressive biceps (did I mention the steamy showers?)
3. Sofia Falcone, Gotham (FOX)
You can't swing a dead bat in Gotham City without hitting a beautiful bad girl, and another lovely lady with a murky agenda, Sofia Falcone (Crystal Reed), is joining their ranks. Better looking than her mob-boss father but guaranteed to be just as calculating and even more intelligent, Sofia will join forces with Gordon to fight a common foe. Does anyone else think the comely Sofia bears a striking resemblance to Jim's ex?
2. Jason Hayes, SEAL Team (CBS)
There are a whole lot of Alpha males with "elite units" coming to the small screen this Fall, and one of them is Jason Hayes (David Boreanaz.) This handsome Navy SEAL (Sea, Air and Land) maintains his macho, warrior exterior during missions, but he's got a softer, sensitive side too -- like an actual baby seal -- when he's not defending his country against enemies foreign and domestic (mostly foreign.) Making the world a better place takes more than boyish good looks, but they sure doesn't hurt.
1. Nora Madani, Valor (The CW)
It's hard to make camouflage and berets look good, but Warrant Officer Nora Madani (Christina Ochoa) manages to pull it off. The stunning brunette is a member of an elite unit of U.S. helicopter pilots known as the Shadow Raiders. As Nora deals with the fallout from a botched top-secret mission, she also manages to keep her eyebrows perfectly coiffed and her ponytail flatteringly disheveled -- a necessary skill for any kick-ass soldier whose many challenges include avoiding the dreaded helmet hair. When fighting enemies overseas, if Nora doesn't look good, the United States of America doesn't look good.
