Fall TV Preview

NBC Sets Fall (Yes, Fall!) Premiere Dates for This Is Us, #OneChicago and More — What Shows Return in 2021?

NBC Fall Schedule 2020

NBC, hot on the heels of CBS and ABC doing same, has released its own Fall TV premiere plan, and it includes actual, autumnal return dates for This Is Us, each and every #OneChicago, and Superstore.

Also locked in — or as “locked in” as anything can be mid-pandemic — for fall are The Voice, SVU and Blacklist; the new, socially distanced comedy Connecting; and the Jane Lynch-hosted Weakest Link.

Meanwhile, returning series that were originally eyed for fall but now will debut after Jan. 1, 2021, include Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Manifest and New Amsterdam.

Scroll down for a full rundown of NBC’s fall lineup, as well as what’s on tap for midseason — plus, an always helpful reminder of what’s already been cancelled.
