In case you haven't heard, there's a global pandemic out there.
This has affected every facet of life in every state across the nation.
As a celebrity gossip website, of course, our focus remains primarily on the entertainment news space, which is why we're now excited to report the following:
Broadcast network television is coming back! To some extent!
COVID-19 prompted the early shutdown of many popular programs, causing Grey's Anatomy, for example, to shelve the final four episodes of Season 16.
It also prompted a delay o filming on new installments and, as a result, on new seasons that typically premiere in the fall of a calendar year.
Most of these shows are coming back, however, just not in mid or late September, like usual.
Over the past several days, however, the broadcast networks have unveiled the premiere/return dates of their highest-rated comedies and dramas, along with some new fare.
They're also confirmed the shows that won't be back until midseason.
NBC, for example, has shared that the following series are being shifted to the winter, likely debuting some time in early 2021:
Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Good Girls, Kenan, Law & Order: Organized Crime, Making It, Manifest, Mr. Mayor, New Amsterdam, Small Fortune, That’s My Jam, True Story, Who Do You Think You Are?, Young Rock and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.
As for CBS’ lineup? Blood & Treasure, Clarice and Survivor have all been held for midseason.
ABC announced $100,000 Pyramid, American Idol, Call Your Mother, For Life and Mixed-ish will premiere in the winter.
The same move has been made by Fox: 9-1-1, 9-1-1: Lone Star, Duncanville, Call Me Kat, The Great North, Hell’s Kitchen and Housebroken have been postponed until next year.
The CW, meanwhile, has pushed back most of their highest-profile shows, with the exception of Supernatural.
All American, Black Lightning, The Flash, Superman & Lois, Riverdale, Nancy Drew, Legacies, Walker, Batwoman and Charmed are all delayed until January.
Got all that?
