The Astronaut Wives Club

ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club has (finally) officially been cleared for liftoff.

The drama, which focuses on a group of women who support their star-bound husbands during the 1960s space race, will bow Thursday, June 18 at 8/7c, the network announced Monday.

Among others, The Astronaut Wives Club stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Once Upon a Time), Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), Odette Annable (Banshee), Desmond Harrington (Dexter), Bret Harrison (Reaper) and Wilson Bethel (Hart of Dixie).

The period drama was curiously omitted from ABC’s initial announcement about summer premiere dates, which detailed the returns of Rookie Blue, The Bachelorette and more.
