Good Place Return Date

NBC Sets Return Dates for Good Place and 12 Others, Plus Taken Revamp

NBC has announced midseason return dates for each of its fall shows — even those that have yet to go on hiatus! — as well as a premiere date for Taken‘s Season 2 revamp.

Effective this week, NBC’s scripted Thursday slate is riding the pine as football takes over. Will & Grace and Superstore will briefly resurface with holiday episodes on a special night — Tuesday, Dec. 5 (at 9/8c and 9:30 pm, respectively) — and then properly resume their seasons on Thursday, Jan. 4, along with The Good Place, Great News and Chicago Fire.

Also among NBC’s announcement, Season 2 of Taken, which underwent a nearly wholesale cast shake-up, will premiere Friday, Jan. 12.

And no, I do not have handy fall finale dates for all of the following; that comprehensive TVLine calendar publishes in December.

MONDAY, JAN. 1
10 pm The Brave

TUESDAY, JAN. 2

10 pm Chicago Med (Season 3 premieres Tuesday, Nov. 21)
