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.
It’s only June, but it’s never too soon to start thinking about what we’ll be watching in the fall. Below is a preview of NBC’s new fall and midseason series, a look at NBC’s schedule, a list of the shows that have been renewed for at least another year, those that have been canceled (R.I.P., Debris), and those whose fates remain in limbo.
