ABC announced its full fall schedule Tuesday.
Notable changes include Marvel's Agents of SHIELD moving to 10pm on Tuesdays, to make room for a new comedy block led by The Middle, and new drama Notorious replacing Scandal at 9pm on Thursdays. (Scandal will be pushed to midseason to accommodate Kerry Washington's pregnancy.)
New drama Convictionwill fill the Monday 10pm slot vacated by Castle, following Dancing with the Stars, while Kiefer Sutherland's new series Designated Survivor will replace Nashville on Wednesdays at 10/9c.
Here's ABC's full schedule:
8/7c: Dancing with the Stars
Conviction,the new drama starring Hayley Atwell (R.I.P. Agent Carter), replaces Castle at 10pm on Mondays after Dancing.
The Middle moves to a new night, kicking off a Tuesday comedy block, while Fresh Off the Boat gets pushed back to 9pm and SHIELD gets bumped to 10pm. ABC Entertainment President Channing Dungey told reporters Tuesday she believes SHIELD's new later timeslot will allow the show to be "a little bit edgier, a little bit darker, and take more risks."
ABC's second comedy block will air on Wednesday nights, with Minnie Driver's new show Speechlessbumping The Goldbergs up from 8:30pm to 8pm.
Notorious replaces Scandal on Thursdays at 9pm, meaning that the night won't totally belong to Shonda Rhimes anymore. But, according to Dungey, the plan is to bring back #TGIT in the spring, with Grey's, Scandal and The Catch. (Still Star-Crossed, the new Romeo & Juliet-inspired Shondaland period show, will be held for midseason, and will likely land elsewhere in the week.)
ABC's Friday night lineup stays intact.
Secrets and Lies returns for Season 2, replacing The Family at 9pm on Sundays.
