TV Calendar 2016 Return Dates

When Will Your Favorite Shows Return From the Holidays? Save These Dates!

That nip in the air and the festive decorations going up at the Buy More can only mean one thing: Your favorite TV shows soon will slip away for the holidays.

When will Scandal‘s Olivia and Fitz pick up the pieces? When will The Blacklist‘s Liz get her day in court? For how long will Empire leave us hanging? Which four dramas will have wrapped their freshman runs by the time we bellow “Auld Lang Syne”?

To help you calibrate your expectations over the winter break, TVLine has compiled a handy list of “fall finale” and 2016 return dates for every scripted network series (plus The Walking Dead, since a few people watch that cable show).

NOTE: Season and series premieres — such as for Fox’s The X-Files, Shondaland’s The Catch, J.Lo’s Shades of Blue and Season 3 of The 100 — will be detailed in our annual January Premieres and Finales Calendar. Not here. (Updated Jan. 19)
