ABC Reveals Fall Primetime Schedule
During the Upfront event in New York, ABC announced its 2023-2024 fall primetime schedule today, featuring a solid lineup of original programming every night with network staples and fan-favourite unscripted series. These shows will also be available on Hulu.
Due to the writer’s strike, ABC is leaning in more heavily on its unscripted content, because it might not be able to get the shows ready for the fall season, though if the strike ends early, they might be able to get some of the shows ready. ABC is the only broadcast network to have put together a strike-proof schedule.
Timing for previously announced renewals and pickups, including “9-1-1,” “Abbott Elementary,” “American Idol,” “The Bachelor,” “The Conners,” “The Good Doctor,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “High Potential,” “Not Dead Yet,” “The Rookie,” “Station 19,” and “Will Trent” will be announced at a later date.
Craig Erwich, president, Disney Television Group said in a statement:
“We are proud to be home to beloved series and meaningful narratives that audiences continue to embrace, and we’re fortunate that our solid, stable roster continues to leverage the enormous success of our established hits, with originals airing every night of the week,”
The network is leaning into its incomparable unscripted slate, with “Dancing with the Stars” making history once again by becoming the first series to broadcast live across multiple platforms on Monday nights followed by the highly anticipated premiere of “The Golden Bachelor.” Star-studded game shows “The $100,000 Pyramid,” “Celebrity Jeopardy!,” “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” and “Press Your Luck” as well as the 15th season of multi-Emmy Award-winning “Shark Tank” and the sophomore season of “Judge Steve Harvey” return. “Bachelor in Paradise” takes over Tuesdays to satisfy everyone’s guilty pleasure. Sundays are all about family, featuring all-new episodes of “America’s Funniest Home Videos” paired with beloved movies from “The Wonderful World of Disney.”
Additionally, encore airings of Emmy Award-winning phenomenon “Abbott Elementary” will air this fall. ABC News’ “What Would You Do?,” which ran for an impressive 15 seasons, also makes its return to primetime, reintroducing the iconic hidden camera show to new and returning audiences.
Fall premiere dates will be announced soon.
