DANA DELANYBody of Proofs revamped third season has been pushed back — but just a smidge.

An ABC source tells TVLine that the delay is merely the result of President Obama’s State of the Union address, scheduled for Feb. 12. The network’s Powers That Be didn’t want to interrupt any momentum the show might muster up by debuting Body and then preempting it the following week.

When the show does in fact return, executive producer Matthew Gross promises that fans can look forward to “stories that [are] more thrilling [and] have more stakes.”
