The TVLine-Up: What's Returning, New and Leaving the Week of Aug. 15

Chesapeake Shores Season 5 Returns on Hallmark Channel

This weekly feature is in addition to TVLine’s daily What to Watch listings and monthly guide to What’s on Streaming.

With nearly 500 scripted shows now airing across broadcast, cable and streaming, it’s easy to forget that a favorite comedy is returning, or that the new “prestige drama” you anticipated is about to debut. So consider this our reminder to set your DVR, order a Season Pass, pop a fresh Memorex into the VCR… however it is you roll.

This week, you’ll find 10 returning series (including new seasons of Bachelor in Paradise, Chesapeake Shores and Nora From Queens), six series debuts (including Sandra Oh’s The Chair, Stephen Amell’s Heels and Nicole Kidman’s Nine Perfect Strangers) and a smattering of films and specials (including family friendly, feature-length installments of The Loud House and PAW Patrol, and the annual Stand Up to Cancer event).
