Fall TV billboards turning heads in the skies of L.A. in October 2015...

Even though last month there was a deluge of new season TV billboards assaulting the skies of L.A., October also had more than its share of outdoor ads for new series and returning favourites.

TV billboards
American Horror Story Hotel billboard
First up are some twisted creatives for the new season of anthology series American Horror Story, this time set in the creepy Hotel Cortez in L.A.

Even though one of their biggest stories for the new season has been the addition of Lady Gaga to the cast, I'm glad they opted for these surreal billboards rather than showcasing the Fame Monster herself.

I also think it's the first time they've used special extension billboards to promote the show, so these ads stand out even more.

If you're a fan of the spooky series, be sure to compare these ads to previous season billboards for American Horror Story to choose your favourites.
Enfield Haunting TV miniseries billboard
Keeping to the dark and twisted theme, this possessed family portrait polaroid creative for The Enfield Haunting mini-series also helped get passersby in the Halloween spirit this month.
Wicked City series premiere billboard
Another billboard with a darker tone this month were these billboards for Wicked City, a serial killer drama set in 80s L.A. along the razzle dazzle of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll of the Sunset Strip.
Giant Ash vs Evil Dead series premiere billboard
And following in the footsteps of several other movie franchises, Ash vs. Evil Dead is the latest spin-off series coming to television this Halloween for a new episodic take on the comedy horror franchise.
The Leftovers giant season 2 billboard
The Leftovers was back for a sophomore season with this compelling giant-sized billboard for the post-rapture drama and I liked how this underwater ad creative had a religious feel, with its homage to The Creation of Adam.
Belief Own TV miniseries billboard
Speaking of religion and Oprah's OWN Network was debuting a new seven-night event mini-series exploring humankind's search for something greater than themselves, looking at spirituality and sacred places and rituals all over the world.
Homeland Season 5 billboard
After a stellar fourth season, Homeland is back for a fifth season with a new intriguing storyline, but the same old crazy 'Carrie Mathison' (played by Claire Danes).
The Affair season 2 billboard
The Affair is also back on Showtime for its second season and things get more complicated for everyone involved, especially viewers, as we now get the additional perspectives of the spouses that were cheated on.
Walking Dead season 6 billboard
The Walking Dead shook its season promo billboards up with this bold 'TWD' ad creative and the sixth season is off to a strong, shocking start.
The Knick season 2 billboard
from cutting up zombies to cutting up patients at the turn of the century in New York, and period medical drama The Knick with Clive Owen was back with this season two billboard.
Fargo season 2 billboard
Also back for a sophomore season was the Fargo TV spin-off, with this fun quilted ad creative for the quirky crime anthology series.
Manhattan season 2 billboard
Nuclear race drama Manhattan was also back for more and dealing with the fallout from the first season with this season two billboard.
Kingdom season 2 billboard
Mixed martial arts family drama Kingdom was also back for a second season with this striking billboard.

And bringing the fun and fantasy for a sophomore season was The Librarians, with the cast of the TNT TV movie spin-off series bursting out of this ad creative.

Adam Ruins Everything series premiere billboard
Plus the star of the web series College Humor, Adam Conover, was making a big impression for the debut of his myth-busting new series on TruTV, Adam Ruins Everything.
Undateable Live season 3 billboard
Over on NBC and the sitcom Undateable was back for a third season of all live episodes, which sounds like it could be nerve-racking stuff for the actors and comedians each week.
