Fall TV Preview

Fall TV: NBC Premiere Dates for The Voice, Parks and Rec in London; Grimm Returns Late October

Fall TV Premiere Dates NBCFriday might’ve been the first day of summer, but NBC was already thinking fall when it announced its premiere dates for the 2013-14 TV season.

The fun officially begins Monday, Sept. 23 with the two-hour premiere of The Voice — which welcomes back Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green — at 8/7c. 

James Spader’s new crime drama The Blacklist follows The Voice‘s return at 10.

The week that follows includes the return of favorites Chicago Fire, Law & Order: SVU and Parenthood and an hour-long, shot-in-London episode of Parks and Recreation on Sept. 26. (Michael J. Fox’s eponymous comedy has its double-episode debut immediately after.)

The Peacock Net is holding Grimm‘s Season 3 premiere until Friday, Oct. 25, when it will warm up the evening for the fangtastic new Dracula, starring Jonathan Ryhs Meyers (The Tudors).
