Fall TV Preview
This Is Us Season 2

NBC Fall Premiere Dates: The Voice and This Is Us Kick Things Off, Taken Is MIA

NBC is the third network (following The CW and CBS) to reveal its precise roll-out plan for the upcoming fall TV season, and it kicks off on Monday, Sept. 25 with The Voice‘s Season 13 premiere.

Last season’s freshman hit, This Is Us, returns the following night (in its usual time slot, following a rethink on NBC’s part), where it will first lead into Law & Order True Crime (and, later, Chicago Med).

Blindspot Season 3 closes out the Peacock’s scripted premiere plan on Friday, Oct. 27, where it originally was going to lead into Taken Season 2, though the latter has since been bumped to midseason.

On tap for midseason are new seasons of Timeless, Shades of Blue, Trial & Error and The Wall, as well as the freshman shows A.P. Bio, The Awesome Show, Champions, Ellen’s Game of Games, Genius Junior, Good Girls, The Handmade Project, Reverie and Rise.

    Why are they waiting so late to start Friday programming (other than Dateline)? Are they just going to show encores of other shows that first month?

  2. Elaine says:

    Moving Blindspot to Friday @8:00 is a sure killer. Why bring it back if you are going to let it die a slow death

  3. Scott Gilbert says:

    WOW. The only NBC show I will be watching is the Blacklist. I’m stunned

  4. Larc says:

    Nothing I want to watch except This Is Us.

    • Gena says:

      For me, it’s TIU plus ‘The Good Place’ and ‘Great News.’ :)

      (Also looking forward to ‘Trial & Error,’ whenever it’s supposed to come back — I heard it was renewed for a 2nd season, but it’s not listed with the “on tap for midseason” shows, so maybe they’re saving it for late spring/early summer…)

  5. marvinquinn says:

    I’m glad Blindspot, is returning.

  6. Traci says:

    where is chicago med????

  7. Joey Padron says:

    Weird that The Voice getting a 3 night premiere for the new season. I’m excited for the new seasons of This Is Us, Superstore, The Good Place, and The Blacklist.

  8. steven says:

    They changed the schedule again? Can’t they make up their minds?

  9. lame says:

    Guess I’ll be watchong Blindspot on hulu.

  10. grazelled says:

    Can’t remember, when is Timeless 10 episode returning…next Spring or Summer or was it a mid season replacement somewhere?

  11. Angie Johnson says:

    Where’s Chicago Med I the line-up

  12. Dan says:

    What about Trial and Error?

  13. lindsay says:

    I never realized The Voice is on 3 nights a week! I don’t watch, obviously, but is that necessary? Seems like it’d need to be 2 nights a week at most. Seems like overkill.

  14. Corky says:

    Just realized that I don’t watch a single NBC show. Huh.

  15. Terri Spoonemore says:

    What about lethal weapon??

  16. Sherry Dunn says:

    Where is Taken???

  17. Gina says:

    But Taken is coming back right?

  18. dean says:

    So they’re really sticking with this 8 pm Blacklist idea?

    • Penny says:

      Unfortunately it appears so. Blindspot was to dark for Wednesday’s at 8pm, and they thought to put an equally dark (if not darker) show to replace it? Still don’t get it.

  19. Doris says:

    The Blacklist and SVU are the only ones I care about watching

  20. Penny says:

    Where I see Chicago Med?????

  21. Michael Summerset says:

    The late start for Blindspot suggests it could be a shorter season. They’ll likely run only six episodes before Christmas.

    They could then air Timeless for ten episodes from January to March in that slot and bring back Blindspot for another seven episodes from April to June, thus giving Blindspot only 13 episodes. Both shows could then be cancelled for the following season since they’ll have a year to develop a show for that slot.
