Fall TV premiere dates 2019: When every new and returning show debuts

There are some days we look forward to every year: the start of summer, Christmas, your birthday. And our personal favorite: the return of fall TV.

The TV landscape has changed immeasurably in recent years, and we have premieres to look forward to throughout the year thanks to midseason shows, streaming, and more. But that doesn’t mean fall television isn’t still an event — it feels as much a part of the turning of the seasons as the leaves changing or the return of football.

From the Big Five networks to premium cable to streaming, here’s a handy guide to the premiere dates for all of the biggest shows. Mark your calendar now for these series and season premieres. (This post will be updated as more dates are announced.)

Not to rush your summer along, ladies and gentlemen who consume TV, but it is time for TVLine’s famously handy calendar (and it is an actual calendar) of Fall TV season and series premieres.

Following a bit of Dancing and a taste of Horror, this year’s onslaught truly kicks off on Monday, Sept. 23, at which point nearly 70 season and series premieres roll out over seven days. October then opens with a smattering of new/returning shows, building to a beefy Sunday that brings zombies, super women and kids saying the darndest things.

Here is our round-up of September/October dates, as well as two tinted boxes that denote later launches and midseason fare — both free to you, just for visiting TVLine.com. (Skimming the latter list is a great way to save yourself from “Oh my stars, where are those mischievous Legends of Tomorrow?!” fits of anxiety.)

New series are in BOLD, time zones Eastern. Click to zooma-zoom-zooma-zoom and save the dates! (Updated 9/3)

Preemptive P.S. My calendar-making skills have never been infallible, so if you spot something that is (theoretically) missing, drop a polite note in Comments and I will (possibly) include it in an update.

You can also view the broadcast networks’ Fall TV roll-out plans in detail at these links: ABC, CBS, Fox, NBC and The CW.

Fall 2019 TV Schedule: What to Watch Every Night of the Week

(Photo by Kurt Iswarienko FX; Robert Falconer/The CW; Disney+; Jackson Lee Davis/AMC; Robert Viglasky/© Caryn Mandabach Productions Ltd. 2019)

If you’re making your list of what to watch this fall, you might have noticed you can choose from approximately 1,000 new series — OK, maybe not quite that many, but definitely even more shows than ever. That’s because in addition to all the network originals, there are even more streaming services coming (Disney+ and AppleTV+ hit this fall, not to mention HBO Max and Peacock in the spring).

It’s all a little overwhelming. How do you even choose? There are only so many hours in a day, so if you pick a show for each hour to watch live, you can catch up On Demand, on your DVR, or on the streaming service of your choice. To help you make those big decisions, we’ve organized the fall TV schedule day by day and in order of premiere date. We’ve included ongoing series and streaming launch dates in the calendar, but we haven’t included one-off specials or TV movies — check out our handy “Premiere Dates Calendar” to find out when those debut.

The 6 Best TV Shows on Wednesday Nights

With so many acclaimed and wide-ranging shows on TV right now, it’s only getting increasingly hard to pick which ones are worth tuning into. Between your already established favorites and the consistently growing list of new series you’ve been meaning to watch (we know you have one), it seems like there’s just no way to keep up. Luckily, we’re here to help narrow down your plethora of daily options.

Wednesdays mark a big night for television, but you don’t have to attempt to tune into every show to figure out which best suits your taste. These six shows – which include a mix of everything from superhero shows to musical dramas – are some of the best of the night. Choose your top picks based on your own preferences and get ready to be seriously entertained.

1. Empire, FOX at 9 p.m. EST

Source: Fox

The hip-hop music-themed drama was one of the biggest freshman hits of the season and for good reason. Between the stellar cast (including Terrence Howard and the too-good-to-be-true Taraji P. Henson), the catchy music (Empire’s season one soundtrack beat Madonna’s new album to top the Billboard 200 chart) and the plethora of celebrity cameos (Naomi Campbell! Jennifer Hudson! Patti LaBelle!), it’s hard not to be addicted to this series, co-created by Lee Daniels and Danny Strong.

Fans can expect season two to be even bigger, with Chris Rock, Alicia Keys, and Lenny Kravitz joining the show and an expanded 18-episode season. The music is also about to get stronger, with Ne-Yo joining Timbaland on the series songwriting team. Empire reclaimed its Wednesday night spot on September 23, with the second half of the season airing in spring 2016.

2. The 100, The CW at 9 p.m. EST

Source: CW

The post-apocalyptic sci-fi drama, following the travails of 100 young prisoners sent from an orbiting space station to Earth, isn’t one of the CW’s most high-profile shows, but it is one of its best. The show has become a critical hit throughout its two-season run, earning high praise for mainting its fast-paced momentum and exciting life-or-death scenarios while still tackling questions about war and the ongoing battle for survival.

Though the series has earned high critical praise, it hasn’t been able to find its full audience yet – which is why the CW is planning to hold the show’s next premiere until midseason, instead of airing it in early fall. The move will hopefully give the series time to build buzz and attract more viewers for its third season.

3. Black-ish, ABC at 9:30 p.m. EST

Source: ABC

The family sitcom, starring Anthony Anderson and Tracee Ellis Ross, has been a strong performer for ABC since its debut last fall. The show premiered as part of a slew of culturally themed titles last season, but has since set itself apart by successfully mixing comedy, family dynamics, and cultural issues. Now one of the most successful new network shows of the year, the series has earned an average of 7.14 million total viewers throughout its freshman season and garnered largely positive critical reviews. Most recently, Anderson earned a nod for Best Actor in a Comedy Series at the Critics Choice Awards for his portrayal.

The series was renewed for a second season, which kicked off on September 23.

4. Arrow, The CW at 8 p.m. EST

Like its fellow superhero series The Flash, Arrow has gathered and maintained a loyal fanbase throughout its run, thanks to its consistently exciting storyline and consistent visual appeal. The show wrapped its third season in May, with 2.37 million viewers tuning into the game-changing finale. With a fourth season on the way, viewers are reportedly in for some big changes. Star Stephen Arnell has already confirmed the next season will boast a lighter tone. He also confirmed that his character is “done” with his normal Arrow suit, leading many to assume he could finally be transitioning to what many have been waiting for: Green Arrow.

Also in the works for next season? More crossover episodes with The Flash, which the network has confirmed will now be an annual event. The show returns to the CW on October 7.

5. Nashville, ABC at 10 p.m. EST

Source: ABC

The country music soap, starring Hayden Panettiere and Connie Britton, continued to bring the drama in its third season, which just wrapped up in May. Between the broken hearts, babies, and ballads, the show has been bravely tackling some pretty serious themes lately: from Chris Carmack’s Will Lexington struggling to come out within the often traditional country music industry to Panetierre’s Juliette Barnes dealing with post-partum depression. Plus, the original songs continue to prove popular on iTunes, with the most recent compilation reaching the top 5 in the country charts.

The drama’s fourth season kicked off on September 23.

6. Law and Order: SVU, NBC at 9 P.M. EST

Source: NBC

The long-running police procedural has remained an addictive favorite for sixteen seasons and counting. With Mariska Haritgay’s Olivia Benson still at the lead, the show continues to boast intricate, action-packed narratives that keep audiences tuning, even all these years later. Most recently, the series has also had several crossover episodes with NBC’s Chicago-based franchises, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D.

To no one’s surprise, SVU was renewed for a seventeenth season, with episodes again airing in its usual 9 p.m. slot, following The Mysteries of Laura, this fall.

Summer has come and gone and Fall TV premiere week is finally here! Each of the broadcast networks set their 2019-20 schedules ahead of their upfront presentations to advertisers back in May, complete with new series and returning favorites. But because it’s been a few months since then, TheWrap is here to remind you what is airing when.

While Fox, CBS and The CW shook things up by switching around time slots or completely revamping a few nights this fall, ABC and NBC (mostly) preached stability with their primetime blocks.

Staples like ABC’s TGIT lineup, CBS’ procedural-led Tuesdays, NBC’s “Chicago” Wednesdays, Fox’s animated Sundays (with the exception of one new series) and The CW’s pairing of “Supernatural” and “Legacies” on Thursdays are going untouched.

But the schedules still show some big changes, like “Empire” shifting from Wednesdays to Tuesdays for its sixth and final season, ABC’s “American Housewife,” The CW’s “Charmed,” and CBS’ “Magnum P.I.” being banished to Fridays, and NBC bumping “Will & Grace” to midseason.

As for some of the promising series making their debuts this fall, NBC’s new legal drama “Bluff City Law” is getting the coveted “Voice” lead-in on Mondays, WWE’s “Friday Night SmackDown” will air live Fridays on Fox starting in October, ABC’s “Black-ish” spinoff “Mixed-ish” has landed behind “Bless This Mess” on Tuesdays (which will now air after “The Conners”), “Batwoman” will be paired with “Supergirl” on The CW’s Sundays, and three new series will join “Young Sheldon” and “Mom” on CBS’ Thursday lineup.

Below are the full fall 2019 schedules for NBC, Fox, ABC, CBS and The CW. New shows are listed in all caps and bolded and new nights and time slots for returning shows have been denoted.
