The new network TV season is here! While the amount of Austinites on TV in the past has been abundant, this season isn’t quite so plentiful.

There are a few actors with ATX ties who will be appearing the small screen though.

Here are the Austinites on TV you’ll see this Fall, including the premiere date of the show in which they star.

Jensen Ackles

The Supernatural star and his wife aren’t shy on Instagram, sharing pictures of family life here in Austin. They also own Family Business Brewing in Dripping Springs.

The native Austinite appears on the Showtime series Kidding.

Austin Amelio

Before he was an actor, Amelio was a sponsored skateboarder and a fixture on the Austin shredding scene. He went on to appear in the Richard Linklater film Everybody Wants Some, as well as the Austin shot Song to Song. Will we see him return to his role as Dwight on The Walking Dead? We’ll have to wait and see once the new season premieres.
