The network has renewed most of its slate
ABC is bringing back a lot of your favorites next season. The network has revealed what's ahead for its 2020-2021 broadcast season, and it includes two new series and a bunch of returning dramas, comedies, and reality shows.
Among the shows returning to ABC next season are American Idol, American Housewife, America's Funniest Home Videos, The Bachelor, The Bachelorette, black-ish, The Connors, Dancing With the Stars, For Life, The Goldbergs, The Good Doctor, Grey's Anatomy, A Million Little Things, mixed-ish, The Rookie, Shark Tank, Station 19, 20/20, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire.
ABC has also announced two straight-to-series orders: David E. Kelley's Big Sky, which will star Kylie Bunbury and Katheryn Winnick as a detective and ex-cop, respectively, who team up to try and find two girls kidnapped by a truck driver; and Call Your Mother, a new comedy series (previously titled My Village) that features Kyra Sedgwick as an empty-nester mother who decides to reinsert herself into her adult children's lives. The two series join the previously announced revival of Supermarket Sweep, hosted by Leslie Jones. All three are expected to debut this fall.
However, the network has decided to cancel its freshman series The Baker and the Beauty and Emergence, along with second-year comedies Single Parents, Schooled, and Bless This Mess. And after initially renewing Stumptown for Season 2, ABC decided to cancel the show due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
