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.

‘Schitt’s Creek’ Launching in National Syndication Following Emmys Sweep
The small town of Schitt’s Creek is going nationwide!
After sweeping the Emmys on Sunday, September 20, the half-hour sitcom is coming to a TV near you.
You’ll be able to watch the fan-favorite comedy anywhere as it’s being launched into national syndication across U.S broadcast markets starting on September 28, per the press release from Lionsgate’s Debmar-Mercury, who owns the domestic broadcast rights.
Prior to Sunday’s show, the Pop TV original had zero Emmy’s, but now, it’s being referred to as a nine-time Emmy Award-winning comedy. Talk about bragging rights.
During the 2020 virtual show, it won all seven of the major comedy categories and became the first to win all four comedy-acting categories in one year.
The cast includes Emmy Award winners Eugene Levy, Catherine O’Hara, Daniel Levy, Annie Murphy and Chris Elliott. Rounding out the cast are Emily Hampshire, Jennifer Robertson, Noah Reid, Sarah Levy, Karen Robinson, Dustin Milligan, John Hemphill, Rizwan Manji, and Tim Rozon.
Schitt’s Creek centers on an outrageously wealthy video store magnate, Johnny Rose (Eugene Levy); his former soap-star wife Moira (Catherine O’Hara); and their two adult children – the self-described black sheep of the family David (Daniel Levy) and career socialite Alexis (Annie Murphy). When the family suddenly find themselves broke, they have no choice but to move to Schitt’s Creek, a small-town Johnny once bought as a joke. Forced to live out of a motel, with their pampered lives a memory, they struggle to find jobs and relationships and, most importantly, figure out what it means to be a family in the loveable town they’ve reluctantly come to call home.
Debmar-Mercury Co-Presidents Ira Bernstein and Mort Marcus, commented, “What begins as a fish-out-of-water story quickly develops into a nuanced love letter to family, delivered with warmth, humanity and perfect comedic timing. With a gifted cast and whip-smart writing, it’s easy to see why ‘Schitt’s Creek’ appeals to Emmy voters, critics and viewers, and has built a loyal and passionate fan base. We are excited to bring the Emmy Award-winning series to broadcast television stations and introduce the iconic Rose family to a new audience.”
Previously, Schitt’s Creek was available for streaming on Netflix.
The sixth and final season will be available on the platform starting Wednesday, October 7.

‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Moves Up Premiere Date – Find Out When You Can Reunite with the Pearsons!
The wait for new episodes of This Is Us is almost over.
The show’s fifth season will premiere on Tuesday, October 27, a few weeks ahead of its previously announced November 10 premiere.
NBC made the announcement during a commercial that ran during the season finale of America’s Got Talent on Wednesday.
The show’s official social media accounts also revealed the good news writing: “We just couldn’t wait any longer, but we have a feeling you won’t mind.”

The reunion with the Pearsons will be a two-hour event, which will hopefully answer some burning questions left behind by season 4 like who Madison’s doctor is and why Nicky was by Rebecca’s bedside instead of Miguel.
The series has about a month to turn over new episodes as TVLine notes that the series is set to start production this week following a mandatory hiatus brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Like many shows including FOX’s The Resident, the season isn’t shying away from reality but will instead tackle the pandemic “head-on,” series creator Dan Fogelman revealed on Twitter.
Some vague #ThisIsUs answers (sorry)
– Not sure yet on production start.
– Not sure when new eps will air.
– Yes on Covid. We've decided to attack things head on. Very proud of @ThisIsUsWriters
– Same planned ending. Same route to get there.
Hope that's (somewhat) useful? https://t.co/gx0YJQxq5f

It’s unclear how the public health crisis will play into the show’s narrative or how it’ll affect the tight-knit Pearson clan. Maybe that’s why Randall and Kevin haven’t seen each other for years? Yes, we’re trying to pretend that big explosive fight in the This Is Us Season 4 finale never happened!
Turning it over to you, Cravers. Are you excited for the return of This Is Us?
