Fall TV Preview
Blindspot Season 2 Premiere Date

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

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.

      Investigating…. Please hold….

      • Kelly says:

        Didn’t Grimm’s season get cut down or in half?

        • Kevin K says:

          Grimm is going to have a 13-episode run but NBC is not so sure whether or not it would have a proper final season.

          • Murica! says:

            Why did you change your name to kevin k? It’s very Obvious that you’re Tran. You talk the exact same way he did.

        • Emor says:

          They renewed Grimm for 13(+) episodes. Officially 13eps with the POSSIBILTY of more. Don’t hold your breath as NBC has 12 additional shows that need to air during the season. (except for Marlon which will air next summer…i.e. Mr.Robinsion, Uncle Buck…Hmm, there seems to be a tend there…)

        • Carla Krae says:

          Kelly, possibly…it’s an initial order of 13 due to NBC’s schedule being really full, so what Grimm gets depends on how poorly new stuff does, it seems.

          • It makes all the difference depending on WHEN Grimm starts, though. If it starts now, it’s more likely they’ll order more episodes than if they push it back!

            Still nothing! :( I hate NBC so much! It used to be a major underdog, and Grimm was one of the original shows that made it come out of the hole it was sinking. Then it became completely formulaic (good guys crossing the edgy side of the law and bad guys helping out the good ones?). Literally every new show has been like this and they keep spinoffing :(

  1. Kevin K says:

    Can’t wait until October 3rd when Timeless debuts but this should be a great series.

  2. Lee says:

    What airs at 10 Monday September 26 before Timeless premieres?

    • B says:

      Presidential Debate 9-11

    • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

      First presidential debate (Wright State University, Dayton, Ohio)

      • PatriciaLee says:

        In the early 90’s the school had free tuition for anyone living in the state (don’t know about now, but the husband and I lived there awhile, then). Interesting.

        • PatriciaLee says:

          Oooops. Mis-remembered…anyone in the state would be accepted, no matter what the academic background, not tuition. I think. But in the 80’s to 90’s time, it was VERY groundbreaking.

  3. wrstlgirl says:

    I’m easy, don’t really care when my shows premiere, as long as they do :-)

  4. Lisa says:

    Sept. 14!!! That’s still 3 months away. I’m already going through Blindspot withdrawal.

  5. Cassie says:

    Chicago Fire seems to always get a later start. If that means less repeats before the break then I’m okay with that. Hopefully it will give This Is Us a chance to get established so it will be a decent lead in when CF returns.

  6. Fred says:

    What are they programming for Monday Sep 26 at 10 pm? Why is Timeless premiering so late?

  7. Chad says:

    Not sure about Chicago Med’s chances head to head with Grey’s Anatomy next season.

  8. Joey Padron says:

    I’m excited for Superstore and The Blacklist’s new seasons!

  9. Susan S. says:

    Waiting for the Grimm date. Grimm is the only NBC show I care about. Hoping for a full season.

  10. PatriciaLee says:

    The husband asks, “Can’t we get any reruns? [Chicago Fire]

  11. Sara says:

    Surprised that nbc not using the olympics to do special previews like they did 4 years ago

    • John NYC says:

      Is The Last Ship on that network? Perfect synergy if so…..

    • E. D. Boddy says:

      I don’t know that it was all that effective. They wouldn’t stop promoting whatever that show was with the monkey as a doctor, but it failed pretty quickly.

  12. Beth says:

    Any news on Cruel Intentions yet?

  13. sarah j says:

    Chicago Fire’s late start will mess up the time lines and the Chicago’s do the mini crossovers!

  14. queensgirl says:

    “Grimm‘s premiere timetable has not yet been announced.”

    No, of course not. Why would NBC acknowledge Grimm?

  15. Dawn says:
