It’s getting closer! It’s been a long summer waiting on pins and needles because of cliffhangers thrown at us on our favorite shows. The good news is you won’t have to wait much longer. ABC has officially announced the premiere dates of their Fall lineup and we have it all listed out for you.
ABC will launch the 2017-18 season with a slate of returning hit shows and five new series. The new season kicks off with the premiere of the milestone 25th installment of “Dancing with the Stars” on Monday, September 18. New dramas debuting are “The Good Doctor,” from executive producer David Shore (“House”) and starring Freddie Highmore as a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome; “Kevin (Probably) Saves the World” (formerly “The Gospel of Kevin”), featuring Jason Ritter as a self-absorbed person on a downward spiral who’s presented with a mission to save the world; the epic adventure “Marvel’s Inhumans,” based on the legendary comic book characters; and “Ten Days in the Valley,” starring Kyra Sedgwick as a TV producer whose young daughter goes missing.
The comedy “The Mayor” rounds out the slate of new shows. Starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a rapper who runs for office as a publicity stunt – and ends up winning – “The Mayor” follows “black-ish” on its new night and time, Tuesdays (9:00-9:30 p.m. ET).
Other returning shows with new timeslots are “American Housewife” (Wednesdays, 9:30-10:00 p.m. ET), “Fresh Off the Boat” (Tuesdays, 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET), “Once Upon a Time” (Fridays, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), “The Toy Box” (Sundays, 7:00-8:00 p.m. ET), “To Tell the Truth” (Sundays, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET); and “Shark Tank” (two-hour season premiere Sunday, October 1, from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET; then Sundays, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET, beginning October 8).
