When AMC announced that it was creating a spinoff of its milestone horror-fantasy classic “The Walking Dead,” I was skeptical.

This summer, while many comedy fans were distracted by Amy Schumer’s meteoric rise and Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” departure, Comedy Central quietly introduced one of the best new series of the season: the faux reality show/period piece “Another Period.” Billed as “Downton Abbey” meets “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” the show is set in Newport, R.I., in 1902, and follows the high-society Bellacourt family and its downstairs help.

Now, we may not be getting “30 Rock” back (we can only dream), but Fey and fellow co-creator Robert Carlock have gifted us with what looks like a promising new series, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” which premieres March 6 on Netflix. Hope you didn’t have any big spring break plans.
Although there may not be as many shows starting their run in the winter, there is some real quality hidden among the deluge of shows like “The Bachelor.” Here are five of the best new shows airing or about to air this winter that you should have your eye out for.
