NBC has announced its fall 2020-2021 TV schedule, and we’d be lying if we said we weren’t excited to see our favorite shows back in action.
Unlike The CW and FOX, which has banked on either reruns or shows from other networks it has acquired, NBC feels confident that it’ll be able to return to its regularly scheduled programming come fall despite the coronavirus pandemic.
And with production gearing back up following months of COVID shutdowns, we’re staying just as hopeful.
The network announced that the Law & Order: SVU spinoff focused on Christopher Meloni will be titled Law & Order: Organized Crime. It will be paired with its sister series to dominate Thursday nights, which will allow for a seamless crossover like many of the other #OneChicago shows currently dominating Wednesday nights. Per the statement given to TV Line, the series will follow Meloni’s longtime character, Elliot Stabler, as he “returns to the NYPD to battle organized crime after a devastating personal loss.”

The Chicago shows — Fire, Med, and PD — will continue in their Wednesday time slots.
Fresh off of a season 3 renewal, Manifest, which is usually held for midseason, will kick off Monday nights as the mystery of Flight 828 continues on.
This Is Us is also staying in its Tuesday night time slot, which may surprise audiences since Jon Huertas, who plays Miguel on the emotional drama, said that the series might not even return for production until 2021. But I guess if the network is feeling confident, the series will get back to work to produce more storylines that make us cry.
Also returning this fall are New Amsterdam, Superstore, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, The Blacklist, and The Voice.
Shows held for midseason include: Ellen’s Game of Games, Good Girls, Kenan, Mr. Mayor, Small Fortune, That’s My Jame, True Story, Young Rock, and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist!
And that gives us a lot to look forward to post-COVID.

WATCH: ‘YOU’ Season 3 Trailer Proves Joe and Love Are More Dangerous Than Ever
Can Joe and Love be the “nice, normal neighbors” in a “soulless suburb”?
You can probably answer that question without watching the new trailer for YOU season 3, but in case you can’t, the answer is absolutely not.
The murderous couple, now parents to a baby boy, are back to their old ways.
As Joe develops a new female obsession, Love gets jealous, and couple’s therapy… well, that doesn’t seem to work all that well for them.
As the killing commences — and their impulses take over — it seems as though the cops are hot on their trail.
Check out the trailer below! It’s all worth it solely for that final scene of Love and Joe burying a body of one of their victims as their adorable bundle of joy sits safely in his carseat and coos on.
The new season of YOU drops on Netflix on Friday, October 15.
This Is the One Celebrity Jennifer Aniston & Reese Witherspoon Want to Interview on ‘The Morning Show’
Filming The Morning Show is a lot harder than it looks.
Read the full post HERE!
As Witherspoon exclusively explained during E! News’ Daily Popon Sept. 15, she does not envy “having to tell the good news and the bad news at the same time,” onscreen. “It’s just a lot,” Witherspoon summed up.
Aniston added, “The hours that you have to live, the morning, the information you constantly have to take into your brain on a daily basis…We get to shut off the news and say, ‘I need a break for the next couple of days.'”
The two co-stars portray rival anchors on a fictional news show in the second season of the critically-acclaimed series, returning Friday, Sept. 17. And, fans can expect season two of The Morning Show to be just as riveting as the award-winning first season.
“We were worried about that because season one was such sort of a perfect little art installation in and of itself,” Aniston revealed. “That was not an easy task to sort of drum up, where do we go from here?”
Witherspoon teased, “We worked really hard and I think we did it. There’s good stuff.”
So, what would be their dream morning news segment to film? According to Aniston, a “meta” interview with Julia Roberts would be fun to shoot.
Meanwhile, Witherspoon is ready to hit the bar behind the news desk. “I think we do a scene where we do it when we’ve had four glasses of wine and then interview celebrities,” she quipped.
Aniston adorably agreed: “I’m so in. Sort of like a Hoda [Kotb] and Kathy Lee [Gifford]? Yeah, I’m into it.”
Watch the adorable interview above to hear why co-star Billy Crudup thinks producers Witherspoon and Aniston are “formidable” inspirations!
The Morning Show season two premieres Friday, Sept. 17 on AppleTV+.
Has ‘The Bachelor’ Season 26 Found Its Leading Man Already?
ABC may have found its leading man for the upcoming season of The Bachelor.
Clayton Echard has been announced as the lead for season 26, according to Variety.
However, if you’re not familiar with the name, you aren’t the only one.
The outlet reports that Bachelor Nation hasn’t met him yet because he’s part of Michelle Young’s season of The Bachelorette, which premieres on October 19.
Clearly, that means Echard did not find love with Young, but the franchise saw something in him that compelled them to cast him in the role before audiences were even able to weigh in.
The outlet notes producers fell in love with the 28-year-old from Missouri and tapped him for the upcoming season.
No official confirmation has been made by ABC, and it likely won’t be until later this year after Young’s season is underway.
However, Variety is reporting the news based on confirmation from multiple sources.
While there’s no premiere date for the upcoming season, The Bachelor typically premieres in January.
