ABC's Midseason Plan: Revenge Is on the Move, Killer Women Target Tuesday, Suburgatory's Back
Revenge will be served a little bit later when the ABC drama returns from its winter hiatus.
Per the midseason schedule released by the Alphabet network, Revenge will return as originally planned — on Sunday, March 9 — but in a later time slot, 10/9c.
Taking Revenge’s place in the 9 o’clock hour is the Omar Epps-fronted freshman drama Resurrection, which bows that night.
As previously reported, Revenge, Once Upon a Time, Grey’s Anatomy and Scandal are airing split seasons, and thus will have prolonged breaks after airing their winter finales on Dec. 12 and 15. (Nashville, however, will maintain a presence throughout the winter with four episodes airing across January/February.)
Also of note: Suburgatory will premiere Season 3 on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 8:30 pm, while The Quest, which was to replace Once Upon a Time in Wonderland, is being held for summer. Season 2 of The Taste will instead claim Thursday’s lead-off spot. (Wonderland airs its winter finale Dec. 12, returns in the spring.)
All told, ABC’s midseason plan lays out like this:
THURSDAY, JANUARY 2
8 pm The Taste (two hours, every week)
10 pm The Assets [new series]
The Assets is an eight-part limited series based on the real life events of CIA counter-intelligence officer Sandy Grimes (played by Broadchurch’s Jodie Whittaker).
