There is no better time for diehard fans of television than the fall. With the return of dozens of the best shows on broadcast, cable, and streaming being joined by television’s newcomers, there’s plenty to get you all excited as we push towards the final months of the year. As the summer TV lineup draws to a close in August, we will say goodbye to old friends like Brooklyn Nine-Nine, who we have turned to week-in and week-out for eight seasons just as we say hello to a slew of new shows in September and beyond, that will surely have a place in our hearts by year’s end.
Over the course of the next few months we will see the premieres of shows like Grey’s Anatomy Season 18, All American Season 4, and Yellowstone Season 4. But while we wait for the schedules from NBC, FOX, CBS, ABC, and many other channels, take a look at everything that has been ironed out already. And before you get too far, please note the times below are all Eastern Time and all brand new programs are in all caps.
