Ponder no more about when your favorite ABC show is returning. The network released premiere dates for the 2017-2018 season and some are heading to TV sooner than you think.
ABC previously announced that Once Upon a Time would kick off Season 7 on Oct. 6, but this is the first time we're hearing that Scandal premieres its seventh and final season on Oct. 5. Other highlights include reality TV juggernaut Dancing with the Stars, which begins its 25th season on Sept. 18, and the vastly underrated comedy Speechless heads into its second season on Sept. 27.
Designated Survivor, which also premieres on Sept. 27, looks to settle in after a tumultuous first season which saw lots of behind-the-scenes shakeups and heads into Season 2 with its fourth showrunner. Grey's Anatomy kicks off Season 14 with a two-hour premiere on Sept. 28.
New series highlights include the debut of Marvel's Inhumans on Sept. 29, weeks after it makes a splashy debut in IMAX theaters earlier that month, Freddie Highmore's The Good Doctor on Sept. 25, and Jason Ritter as a man who tries to be the messiah in Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (formerly known as The Gospel of Kevin).
