NBC was one of the first networks to unveil its schedule for advertisers and fans during its annual Upfronts presentation in New York City, and since then we've had some time to digest what's coming up for the fall slate. Excuse us while we dry our eyes just thinking about This Is Us missing from the schedule after wrapping up its six-season run.
However, NBC is the Real MVP this season after saving Magnum P.I. from CBS' scrap pile this spring. The show will have a new home on NBC who picked it up for two more seasons.
Other than that, NBC's schedule will look very familiar for the most part. However, the One Chicago universe is still running strong and NBC has also doubled down on the Law & Order franchise, putting all three shows back on the air next season. The network also dug into its archives and greenlit a Quantum Leap revival, which will premiere in the fall.
NBC's comedy block did get a bit of a shakeup with Mr. Mayor and Kenan getting canceled. Young Rock was picked up for another season along with freshman comedies Grand Crew and American Auto. The latter two will premiere at mid-season while the new comedy Lopez vs. Lopez will premiere on Thursdays in November alongside Young Rock.
Magnum P.I. will live to solve crimes for another two seasons now at NBC. Jay Hernandez stays onboard as the mustached detective. The Season 4 finale saw Magnum and Juliet (Perdita Weeks) sharing a long-anticipated kiss, but whether they'll make it official when the show returns is to be determined
Description: It's been 30 years since Dr. Sam Beckett stepped into the Quantum Leap accelerator and vanished. Now a new team has been assembled to restart the project in the hopes of understanding the mysteries behind the machine and the man who created it. It stars Raymond Lee, Ernie Hudson, Caitlin Bassett, Nanrisa Lee, and Mason Alexander Park.
Night Court (midseason)
Description: Unapologetically optimistic judge Abby Stone (Melissa Rauch), the daughter of the late Harry Stone, follows in her father's footsteps as she presides over the night shift of a Manhattan arraignment court and tries to bring order to its crew of oddballs and cynics, most notably former night court prosecutor Dan Fielding (John Larroquette).
Million Dollar Island
Description: A high-stakes social experiment in which 100 contestants must forge friendships and build alliances as they plot to stay on a remote desert island for up to 50 days and compete to win their share of the ultimate $1 million prize. Upon arrival each contestant is given a bracelet worth $10,000. During their time on the island, contestants gain and lose bracelets through various challenges, but when a player leaves the island, they must choose who will receive their portion of the money. In this intense competition, the strength of your personal bonds are just as important as being the ultimate player.
A sneak peek at some of the new shows that will air this fall and at midseason will updated as new trailers become available.
