ABC Schedules Agent Carter Premiere, Return Dates for Once, Shonda Shows

ABC Premiere Dates

ABC’s winter schedule is already starting to heat up.

The network on Wednesday announced series premiere dates for Marvel’s Agent Carter (Tuesday, Jan. 6, 9/8c), as well as its new musical comedy Galavant (Sunday, Jan. 4, 8 pm).

Set in 1946, the eight-episode Agent Carter finds the titular Peggy (played by Hayley Atwell) juggling admin work for the SSR (Strategic Scientific Reserve) with secret missions for Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper, reprising his Captain America role).

Galavant, meanwhile, tells the story of a dashing knight (Joshua Sasse) who fights — and sings — to reclaim his happily ever after from the evil King Richard (Psych‘s Timothy Omundson).

Additionally, you can now mark your calendars for the return of several huge dramas, including Once Upon a Time and the entire TGIT block. (Revenge, Resurrection and Castle, which break Dec. 7-8, are slated to return in early January.)

    At least the breaks are not as long as last year.

  2. I wanted to thank you for thank for the information.

  3. david says:

    what about revenge? did ABC ALSO give up on it?

  4. Matthew Weber says:

    Wonder what they are thinking for Castle? I would guess it would be around the same time as Scandal.

  5. dragons3 says:

    What would be more helpful would be if they included the dates the breaks would begin. Even if this was reported earlier, some readers may have missed the story or forgotten the information.

  6. Tom says:

    I saw the pilot. Galavant is a HOT mess of a show. What a disaster.

  7. Tran says:

    Good thing Scandal is coming back until January 29th even though my prediction was wrong and come February 5th, it’s Scandal vs. Blacklist in the 9 p.m. Thursday night time slot showdown. Hope Blacklist should save NBC’s Thursday night line-up.

  8. Cass says:

    What about Nashville, Andy?

  9. Stacy says:

    So if Agent Carter starts on Jan 6 and Shield returns March 3, does that mean Agent Carter is only 8 episodes?

  10. Joey Padron says:

    Can’t wait to see Agent Carter!

  11. alistaircrane says:

    Now what about Modern Family?

  12. Luli says:

    Once comes back until March!?!?! Why the big break?!

  13. Lisa says:

    Ugh! waiting for Once to return is going to be difficult again.

    • Brenda says:

      I agree. It’s really hard to wait. I’m having a hard time with it. But on the plus side of things I’m watching all 4 seasons again. March 1st can’t come soon enuf.

  14. Sarah says:

    I’ll definitely remember when Agent Carter premieres since that’s my birthday :)

  15. David4 says:

    Weird once comes back so late.

  16. Bark Star says:

    2 + month long winter hiatus. Another stupid idea of american netweorks.

  17. Mary S says:

    Let’s address some canceled shows and how I might get the DVDs for them: HARRY’S LAW and MEMPHIS BEAT were shows I really enjoyed and I would like to be able to revisit them from time to time. I have eight episodes of Harry’s law taking up space on my DVR but hate to erase them until I can get the DVDs. I did not save any Memphis Beat because it didn’t occur to me to do so. PLEASE, can anyone help me out with these? (I know, we are celebrating the renewal of some of my favorite shows, but they reminded me of former favorites…)

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      You should reach out to TVShowsOnDVD.com, they’re the best resource. But simply said, poorly received dramas are slow to come out on DVD since dramas in general don’t fare as well in DVD sales as sitcoms.

  18. Tana says:

    I think it is outrageous that SCANDAL and the BLACKLIST are on at the same time slot! Seriously!!!!

  19. You can go ahead and cancel Galavant now!

  20. Pam goodley says:

    when will you post 2015 returning/ new shows Your schedule lineup is extremely helpful

  21. Nancy Mills says:

    When does Nashville come back on?! I realize the last air has not even taken place yet but I’m a big fan of the show as well as some of the others on this list. It seems they’ve only gotten started and they are already off the air! What happened to the days of when shows ran from August until May without stopping and NO re-runs!! Hollywood is too pampered!!

  22. Sarah says:

    Oh god no I can’t wait that long for out D’:

  23. Lucia says:

    These large gaps between seasons is very disappointing and annoying. So much so that my viewing party and I have found other interests. Be forwarned, others are also dropping the TV watching habit!

  24. Tai says:

    So excited about SCANDAL!!!! Please dont cute my addiction off cold turkey.

  25. Wilson says:

    I am shure Galavamt was not THAT bad

  26. Vicki Moore says:

    I used to love Greys Anatomy and looked forward every Thursday for it to come only a few years ago they began skipping weeks and put on on old episode in place of the new and I got so discouraged that I lost interest and never got it back. I am afraid that is what they are going to do with Scandal. I watch that show the same as I did with Greys and was really disappointed that they took a long break. Anyway TV people you can ruin a good show by skipping and putting in old reruns.

  27. shaqueda says:

    Omg I’ve been waiting for Once upon a time forever… thanks for the info!!!

  28. Is Nashville TV 2015 returning

  29. maya says:

    anyone knows the premier date for once upon a time?

  30. maya says:

    anyone knows the premier of once upon a time?

  31. Mary Meyers says:

    What the heck? These seasons are getting longer and longer with less episodes! Why is Once Upon A Time delayed until March 1st? The longer gap between season returns makes people forget the back story and lose interest and really affects the continuity of the programming. With the availability of binge watching through Netflix,Hulu, Amazon, etc. network tv is pushing viewers away. Does this make sense or are they making enough money? Sponsors and advertisers will soon not be investing in prime time.

  32. Pamela Edwards-Turner says:

    Yesterday I saved How to get away… for tonight! What’s going on??? Now something else is in it’s place smh!

  33. Patricia says:

    Why such long brakes. It seems like we get 4-6 episodes then off for 3months. This ducks such a great show

  34. nana says:

    When will secret and lies return

  35. nana says:

    When will secret and lies season 2 begin?

  36. Tessa Adler says:

    I thought they cancelled Revenge last year? Can Mistresses come back to fill in until January 29 th on Thursdays? I love that show. I am dissapointed Scandal and How To Get Away with Murder are ending the fall season early but glad they are bringing it back at ending Jan? How long will it last then?

  37. PJ Robinson says:

    This isn’t correct for OUAT, March 1st isn’t on a Sunday, it’s a Tuesday. So it has to be either Feb 28th or March 6th.

  38. Kimmy says:

    The dates for greys and how to get away with murder aren’t accurate.

  39. kd83954 says:

    Once was on a long winter hiatus last year and arguably came back with stronger then ever. This method works well for this show.

  40. Al says:

    Are you stupid? Once did the same thing last year .

    Pre-beak-1.9 in demo
    Post-break- 2.4 in demo

  41. Fran says:

    Who are you talking to?

  42. Fran says:

    Lol, apparently the same person I’m talking to…. The reply button is apparently having issues.
