EW Fall TV Preview cover battle: Vote for the next cover star

Posted on

EW

Forget what we want — what do YOU want to see on the cover of Entertainment Weekly?

For the second year in a row, we’re asking you, our loyal readers, to choose who will appear on the cover of our annual Fall TV Preview issue that goes to subscribers.

The Fall TV Preview issue is no small thing — it’s only one of our biggest issues every year — but we’re trusting readers to decide what show gets to shine on the cover and represent the best and brightest of the season’s new and returning shows. Using the bracket system, we’re asking you to vote (and vote, and vote some more… and then ask your friends to do the same) and whittle the list down from 64 shows to one winning series.

The competition goes live Monday at noon ET, and readers will have the chance to make their voices heard from now until its conclusion on Aug. 4 at 12 p.m. ET. The winner will grace the subscribers’ cover of our Fall TV Preview double issue, sent out on Sept. 15.

Come back for each round at 12 p.m. ET (Round 1: July 10; Round 2: July 15; Round 3: July 20; Round 4: July 25; Final Four: July 31) to cast a vote for the Entertainment Weekly cover star — and enlist fellow fans to participate as well with the hashtag #EWCoverBattle on social media. (And voting your favorite show into the top 16 might just help its chances for a cover in the future.)

One more thing: Last year’s big winner, Supernatural, won’t be eligible this year. And because we have that hotly anticipated Outlander cover also coming in September, we’re taking it out of the running as well.

Now download the bracket, view the full list of contenders below, and cast your vote right here or at ew.com/coverbattle.
