It's almost time for midseason premieres, and I have a list of new shows you need to be familiar with. In part two of this two part post, I will provide a brief description of another four upcoming shows that will be premiering in March and April. Don't forget to record!

Read about the next four below:

5. Of Kings and Prophets

There has been an increasing interest in biblical dramas in recent years, leading to the release of movies like Exodus: Gods and Kings, and Noah, along with the miniseries event, The Bible. While they had some biblical inaccuracies, they did use characters directly from the bible as their main focus, and gave the stories new life. ABC will be debuting their new show Of Kings and Prophets next month, and so far it looks like it will be the biblical equivalent of Game of Thrones, without the nudity. Following King Saul, the shepherd David, and the prophet Samuel, the series will focus on King Saul fighting to maintain his kingdom from outside threats, while facing the ramifications of ignoring God's warning. The series will likely attract viewers who would not usually be interested in bible related material, due to the raw, powerful storyline, and subsequent action. The series will star Maisie Richardson-Sellers (The Originals), Ray Winstone (Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull), Olly Rix (The Musketeers), and Jeanine Mason (Bunheads). Historical movies and television shows have been on the rise, and I think this one will aim to please.

6. The Family

The audience loves a good mystery, leading shows like Secrets and Lies, and How to Get Away with Murder to experience tremendous success. The new thriller, The Family, promises to be just as captivating. The trailer alone leaves the audience guessing, and it looks as though the twists and turns will continue throughout the series. Years after a politician's son goes missing, her family is forced to open old wounds when a boy comes home claiming to be her missing son, especially when they begin to suspect that he is not who he claims to be. The Family stars Joan Allen (The Killing), Alison Pill (The Newsroom), Zach Gilford (The Purge: Anarchy), and Margot Bingham (Boardwalk Empire). Let's hope that The Family follows in the footsteps of ABC's retired show, Revenge, and keeps us continuously captivated.

7. Crowded

Quality comedies are not easy to come by anymore, mainly because original ideas have been relatively used up. Luckily NBC has a comedy debuting next month complete with a fresh new concept. Just when a couple begins to enjoy living alone, their two grown daughters decide to move back home. On top of that, their elderly parents decide to cancel their plans of moving to Florida, choosing to stay and help with the kids instead. Crowded will star Patrick Warburton (Rules of Engagement), Carrie Preston (True Blood), Miranda Cosgrove (iCarly), and Mia Serafino. Both Warburton and Cosgrove have significant sitcom experience, and are more than capable of maintaining a fanbase. Crowded is less than a month away, so get ready for a good laugh!

8. Game of Silence

NBC is bringing us another series with a secret lurking beneath the surface. Following in the footsteps of the network's newest hit, Blindspot, Game of Silence looks to be a tense drama full of dark mysteries, and shocking revelations. An attorney with an advancing career thinks he left his past behind, but when his childhood friends resurface, the skeletons of his past come back to haunt him. Together, they discover secrets that will make them question everything. The series will feature David Lyons (Revolution), Michael Raymond-James (Once Upon a Time), and Larenz Tate (House of Lies). Everyone loves a good mystery, and Game of Silence appears to be a chilling thriller, full of surprises!
