‘The Good Doctor,’ ‘The Conners,’ ‘Stumptown,’ and more
Following the other four broadcast networks, ABC has officially set the premiere dates for its fall 2019 TV series, with every single one of its fall scripted series set to either return or debut during the upcoming season’s premiere week. Although, like the other networks, ABC will only be premiering a small number of new scripted titles in the fall.
“Dancing with the Stars” will kick off the 2019-20 season for ABC, returning a week earlier than the rest of the network’s fall series with its season premiere on Monday, Sept. 16 at 8 p.m. A week later it will be joined by “The Good Doctor,” which will be airing its third season in the same 10 p.m. time slot it did this past year.
The following night (Sept. 24) will see ABC premiering its new Tuesday night lineup in its entirety as well, with “The Conners,” “Black-ish,” and “Bless This Mess” all returning for their new seasons. Additionally, the freshman titles, “mixed-ish” and “Emergence,” will debut in the night’s 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. time slots, respectively.
The network’s returning Wednesday comedies are similarly, all set to premiere on Sept. 25, with the series premiere of the Cobie Smulders-led “Stumptown” capping off the night at 10 p.m. Meanwhile, “Grey’s Anatomy,” “A Million Little Things,” and “How to Get Away with Murder” will premiere their new seasons on Thursday, Sept. 26, in the same time slots they occupied in the 2018-19 season.
Only one of ABC’s fall show is being held until after premiere week, with the network’s new reboot of “Kids Say the Darndest Things” set to debut Sunday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m.
