Fall TV Preview

ABC Announces Fall Premiere Dates: Grey's, Abbott Elementary and More

ABC Fall 2022 Premiere Dates

ABC is the second broadcast network (following Fox) to reveal its fall premiere dates, with its slate set to unspool over three weeks in late September/early October.

The Wednesday sitcom block kicks things off on Sept. 21, now anchored by breakout comedy Abbott Elementary. The Season 3 premiere of Big Sky (now with Jensen Ackles and Reba McEntire!) closes out the night.

The Alphabet network’s fall launch wraps Thursday, Oct. 6, with the returns of Station 19 (Season 6) and Grey’s Anatomy (Season 19) leading into new Hilary Swank drama Alaska Daily (fka Alaska).

As a reminder, summertime staple Bachelor in Paradise is getting a regular-season upgrade, assuming a full four (!) hours of primetime real estate across Mondays (where it replaces Disney+-bound Dancing With the Stars) and Tuesdays.
