Fall TV Preview

NBC Fall Premiere Dates: Chicago Fire's October Start, Blindspot's Wednesday Relaunch and Others

Blindspot Season 2 Premiere Date

NBC this year is the first broadcaster out of the gate with their Fall TV premiere plan, and it kicks off on Sept. 14 with Blindspot‘s Season 2 opener leading out of the America’s Got Talent finale. Chicago Fire meanwhile will bring up the rear, not launching Season 5 until mid-October.

Also of note, the new Kristen Bell/Ted Danson comedy The Good Place is getting a very good showcase — airing a sneak preview after The Voice’s Season 11 opener before moving to its regular Thursday home — while the buzzy drama This Is Us will start off airing Tuesdays at 10 (after The Voice), before settling into its regular 9 o’clock slot.

All told, the Peacock’s fall schedule looks like this; new shows in CAPS. Grimm‘s premiere timetable has not yet been announced.
