What You’ll Be Watching on The CW This Fall

Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.

Our final entry is The CW, which, thanks to an unprecedented purge of shows, is introducing the largest slate of new programs: 5 new fall series, and 2 midseason shows. Of those 5 fall series, two are spinoffs of popular CW series, one is a ridiculous reality series, and two are Canadian series they’ve imported. It’s a weird mix, but what else would you expect from The CW?

What You’ll Be Watching on CBS This Fall

Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.

CBS, like everyone else, is playing it safe. They’ve ordered four new scripted series — all one-hour dramas — two of which are traditional procedurals. The other two are more playful dramedies, but nothing is breaking new ground here. In fact, the most surprising addition to the fall lineup is a reality reimagining of a television classic.

What You’ll Be Watching on ABC This Fall

Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.

ABC remembered how Upfronts worked! There are promotional photos! There are teaser trailers! There is a schedule! Give ABC a sticker!

That said, ABC is playing it VERY safe this season. They have picked up three crime dramas that are structurally similar to other successful ABC projects, one comedy that sounds a lot like a very popular series on another network, and yet another “Celebrity” version of a daytime game show.

What You’ll Be Watching on Fox This Fall

 

Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.

In a demonstration of a complete lack of preparedness, Fox reportedly wasn’t able to secure renewals for 9-1-1 and The Resident until this afternoon. So they decided to just hold off on announcing their fall schedule today, the one day everyone was expecting it. Instead, they dumped a bunch of new shows, three dramas, and two animated comedies, without any indication if they are fall or midseason series. LOL, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

This post will be updated with trailers and premiere dates — and a schedule — as they become available.

What You’ll Be Watching on NBC This Fall

 

Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.

NBC is a great example of this, having ordered only three new series (so far); two of which are sequels to popular 80s titles, and the other helmed by a familiar name in the business. NBC still has a pretty lengthy list of pilots they are considering for the midseason, so stay tuned.

This post will be updated with trailers and premiere dates as they become available.
