Fall TV 2020: Premiere Dates for New and Returning Broadcast Shows

There aren’t as many as usual — and there probably won’t be more until production really picks up again

Fox/The CW/Pop/NBC/ABC

August comes to a close today and ordinarily that would mean we’d all be trying to pack in as much summer fun as we can before September arrives, vacations end, school resumes and life goes back to normal. But this year, well, it’s pretty obvious nothing is going to be “normal” any time soon, and that includes Fall TV.

Seeing as Fox, CBS, ABC, NBC and The CW are still working out the logistics of safely resuming production on their new and returning scripted and unscripted primetime series amid the pandemic, it was assumed that premiere dates for autumn programs weren’t going to come in as quickly and orderly as they usually do. And so far, that’s proven to be the case.

Though the list of broadcast’s Fall TV premiere dates is still growing, TheWrap has already started to round them up to help you keep track of when your favorite comedies and dramas will be back and when those new shows you’ve been promised will premiere. We will continue to update the list below as more dates become available.
