ABC Fall 2020 Schedule: ‘The Bachelorette’ Returns on a New Night, ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ and ‘Station 19’ Dominate Thursday

ABC is the latest network to reveal its fall 2020-2021 schedule.

Despite coronavirus putting a bit of a wrench in plans with the nearly three-month long hiatus, ABC seems to be just as confident in NBC that production will resume soon enough to fill out the upcoming schedule. 

Some of ABC’s biggest properties and programs are expected to return come September including The Rookie and The Good Doctor. 

ABC is also banking on some new dramas to fill the lineup including Big Sky and Call Your Mother. The network even added a reboot of the classic game show Supermarket Sweep with SNL alum Leslie Jones as host.

Bachelor Mondays are a thing of the past as The Bachelorette (Clare Crawley’s season) will be moved to Tuesday’s. The Bachelor with the first black Bachelor Matt James is being held off until 2021. 

TGIT Thursday’s remain entirely too emotional and dramatic (and we love it) with two Shonda Rhimes shows — Station 19 and Grey’s Anatomy — followed by A Million Little Things. 
 
Actively missing from the lineup are American Idol, mixed-ish, $100,000 Pyramid, Card Sharks and For Life, which are being held till midseason. 
 
black-ish was originally left off the lineup before being brought back to honor “Black voices through the lens of the Johnson family.” Call Your Mother is being held till midseason.
 
While the fall lineup surely seems promising, it does come with a “grain of salt” it you will. Since everything about this pandemic is unknown, it’s hard to establish timing.

“I am hopeful that the season will start sometime in late September or early October,” said ABC Entertainment President Karey Burke. In her mind, the “traditional September premiere week is probably overly optimistic for the networks to be looking for.” 

But you know what they say, better late than never!

NBC also announced a confident lineup with all of its biggest hits. CBS is moving in full-force with its hit scripted shows. 

FOX and The CW are erring on the side of caution and pushing more unscripted shows and acquired series like Tell Me a Story. The CW is holding all of its dramas until the midseason. 

What do you think? Is ABC’s schedule too optimistic in light of recent events?

Torrey DeVitto, Yaya DaCosta Leaving ‘Chicago Med’ Ahead of Season 7

Chicago Med Lemons and Lemonade

Someone rush over a crash cart because this news has crushed us!

Chicago Med is losing two incredible cast members ahead of the NBC drama’s seventh season. 

Torrey DeVitto, who plays doctor Natalie Manning, and Yaya DaCosta, who plays nurse April Sexton, will not be returning in the fall, per Deadline.

DaCosta is leaving to lead Lee Daniels’ Our Kind of People, which nabbed a straight-to-series order at FOX. 

DeVitto, from Pretty Little Liars and One Tree Hill fame, will star in an upcoming indie film titled Skelly. 

She even confirmed the news to her fans on social media, writing: “Well, looks like the cat is out of the bag…All good things must come to an end.

It has been such an honor and pure joy to bring Dr. Natalie Manning to life for all of you on Chicago Med for the past 6 seasons. But it is now time for her and me to bow out and say goodbye.

Thank you to all you loyal watchers who adored her as much as I did.

I can’t wait to share what’s to come with all of you. New adventures await!”

Both DeVitto and DaCosta have appeared in the #OneChicago franchise since Med’s premiere in 2015.

Per the publication, their contracts were up at the end of season 6 and both actresses decided not to renew. 

The rest of the cast ( S. Epatha Merkerson as Sharon Goodwin, Oliver Platt as Dr. Daniel Charles, Nick Gehlfuss as Dr. Will Halstead, Brian Tee as Dr. Ethan Choi and Marlyne Barrett as nurse Maggie Lockwood) is expected to return pending contract negotiations.

All three Chicago shows were renewed for three additional seasons back in 2020 — Chicago Fire through season 11, Chicago PD through season 10, and Chicago Med through season 8.

The current storylines have seemingly been setting up for the actresses’ exits as Manning found herself in hot water after stealing medication to help her mother, while April decided to return to nursing school. 

We’ll definitely miss DeVitto and DaCosta, but we wish them the best of luck in future projects!
