ABC Fall Premiere Dates 2018

ABC is getting off to a slightly later start this fall, with no less than 12 shows — including its entire Tuesday lineup — being held until October.

That said, the network’s fall schedule is coming out swinging on Monday, Sept. 24 with the Season 27 (!) premiere of Dancing With the Stars at 8/7c, followed by the return of breakout hit The Good Doctor at 10 pm.

Also of note: Grey’s Anatomy begins its “season of love” with a two-hour premiere event on Thursday, Sept. 27 (8 pm), while Roseanne spinoff The Conners makes its Barr-less debut on Tuesday, Oct. 16 (8 pm).

Last but not least, 2018 officially marks the return of ABC’s TGIF comedy block — the former home of classics like Full House and Boy Meets World — with future classics like Fresh Off the Boat and Speechless, beginning on Friday, Oct. 5.

ABC is the fifth major network to reveal its fall premiere dates, following NBC, The CW and Fox. and CBS. Scroll down for a full rundown of ABC’s fall lineup, as well as what’s on tap for midseason — and a reminder of what’s already been cancelled.
