NBC Reveals Confident Fall 2020-2021 Schedule Including ‘Law & Order: SVU’ Spinoff Starring Christopher Meloni

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. 

Check out the full lineup below and let us know your thoughts! What is going on your DVR?

Deadline reports that most show episodes will be available on their new streaming service “Peacock” a week after they air live in the free tier. The paid tier will see the episodes available the next day. 

NBC previously canceled A.P. Bio (which was picked up at Peacock), Blindspot, Bluff City Law, The InBetween, Indebted, Lincoln Rhyme: Hunt for the Bone Collector, Perfect Harmony, and Sunnyside.

Will & Grace and The Good Place aired their final episodes in 2020.

Netflix Passes on Renewing Canceled NBC Drama ‘Manifest’

Published

Manifest Season Finale Review Mayday Part 1 and 2 Season 3 Episode 12 and 13

Manifest will not fly again.

Netflix has officially passed on renewing the Manifestaccording to Deadline

The plane drama was abruptly canceled after three seasons leaving fans with absolutely no answers as to what led to the disappearance of Flight 828. 

It’s a surprising move considering the series has been steadily holding at #1 after being added to Netflix.

Manifest Season Finale – [SPOILER] Dies (3×12 and 3×13)

Fans also rallied on social media with the #SaveManifest campaign, but sadly, all efforts were unsuccessful. 

Sources say that since Netflix opted to pass on saving the drama, Warner Bros. Television, the studio responsible for the series, has concluded efforts to rehome it as it’s reportedly too complicated with rights and cast contracts. 

For now, reps for Netflix and WBTV declined to comment.

However, it seems to be a done deal as series creator Jeff Rake seemed to confirm the solemn news tweeting: “Manifest Gratitude, Final Edition Thank YOU, our fans. You became the Manifesters at Comic-Con 2018. Ever since, you’ve watched religiously, parsed every word, cried a lot, laughed a little, puzzle-solved, and never, ever, wavered in your support. I’ll never forget it.”

The third season ended early this month with several cliffhangers, which makes this cancellation and failed rescue mission all the more heartbreaking. 

It’s unclear if NBC is totally against giving the series a wrap-up movie as it did with Timeless, but man, don’t fans deserve closure?

The series was initially pitched as a six-season drama, which means there’s plenty more story to tell. 

Even Rake agreed that fans deserve answers. After all, we didn’t spend three years of our lives tuning in weekly to find out what happened to the plane just to be left hanging.

We all know what happens to those who ignore Callings — it’s not good.

‘Friends’ Actor James Michael Tyler Opens Up About Stage 4 Prostate Cancer

James Michael Tyler

James Michael Tyler, who played Gunther, the Central Perk manager on the classic sitcom Friends, opened up about his Stage 4 Prostate Cancer on the Today show Monday morning.

After receiving the grim diagnosis in September 2018, the then 56-year-old actor was put on hormone therapy. It worked for a while before eventually spreading to his spine leaving him paralyzed in his lower body.

He revealed that he’s “been dealing with that diagnosis for almost the past three years…It’s stage 4 [now] late-stage cancer. So eventually, you know, it’s probably going to get me.”

During the recent HBO Max Friends reunion, Tyler had originally planned on attending in person but chose to join virtually, so as to not bring a downer on the happy moment.

“It was bittersweet, honestly. I was very happy to be included,” he said.

Now, he’s using his platform as a way to provide the important message to all men to get screened early, saying that “there are other options available to men if they catch it before me. Next time you go in for just a basic exam or yearly check-up, please ask your doctor for a PSA test.”

“I don’t want people to have to go through what I’ve been going through,” he said. “This is not…an easy process.”
