That nip in the air and the festive decorations at Pop’s can only mean one thing: Your favorite TV shows are packing up for a holiday vacation, if they haven’t already made an early break for the airport.
What follows is a preternaturally handy list of officially confirmed midseason finale and 2020 return dates for dozens upon dozens of scripted, live-action broadcast series (plus, well, American Idol); no wobbly Tumblr rumors here. We’ve also included several season premieres for returning shows, as well as an extreeeemely curated (there’s one, I think…?) selection of cable-TV favorites.
As always, TVLine is a uniquely interactive experience, so if you have any questions, give us polite holler in Comments (“We Here for You!”).
Just keep in mind: What you have before you is not our world-famous, suitable-for-framing January calendar. No, that big, grand, annual megillah is 1) an actual calendar, and B) still being built, using much glue, popsicle sticks and glitter, to go to press later this month.
