New year, new TV shows. The calendar for January 2016 TV premieres is packed with  both series debuts (“The Shannara Chronicles,” “Teachers,” “Billions,” “Shadowhunters”) and new seasons (“The 100,” “Portlandia,” “Marvel’s Agent Carter,” “Younger”).

Get those DVRs ready, because many other shows are are back after the holiday break (“Limitless,” “Chicago Fire,” “iZombie”). Notable miniseries and one-offs air this month (“The X-Files,” “Sherlock: The Abominable Bride,” “War & Peace,” “London Spy”), along with several awards shows and finale.

All of you eager for the Dowager Countess’s sharp wit, “Downton Abbey” is back for, sadly, its final season.

Even though many shows won’t return until February or March (“The Walking Dead,” “Empire,” “Quantico”), there’s plenty to watch during winter snow days. Here’s the web’s most complete calendar of January 2016 TV premieres, finales, specials, movies and returns.
