ABC Unveils 2021-2022 Primetime TV Schedule

Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, today unveiled the ABC primetime schedule for the 2021-2022 season, featuring tentpole returning shows and bold, fresh new series. The network continues to deliver on its success as the season’s No. 1 entertainment network among Adults 18-49 for the second year in a row. This marks the first time the network has won back-to-back consecutive seasons in entertainment in 25 years. ABC also has three of the top five highest-rated entertainment series, the most for any network, with “Grey’s Anatomy,” “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette.”

“We are proud to continue to deliver highly entertaining, culturally relevant and powerful stories that further drive our momentum as the No. 1 entertainment network,” said Erwich. “We’ve also made it a priority to be intentionally inclusive across all of our content, and we’re excited to introduce our audience to the rich new characters, bold stories and strong ensemble casts featured in our upcoming programming slate.”

Debuting this fall is the highly anticipated comedy “The Wonder Years” from Saladin K. Patterson (“Dave,” “The Big Bang Theory”), Lee Daniels (“Empire,” “The United States vs. Billie Holiday”) and original series star Fred Savage; and from Zahir McGhee (“Scandal”), the buzzed-about hip-hop drama series “Queens,” starring Eve, Naturi Naughton, Nadine Velazquez and Brandy, which will feature original music performed by cast members.

Previously announced fan-favorites “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “The Bachelorette,” “Big Sky,” “The Conners,” “Dancing with the Stars,” “The Goldbergs,” “The Good Doctor,” “Grey’s Anatomy,” “A Million Little Things,” “The Rookie,” “Shark Tank” and “Station 19” are also set to return this fall.

Additionally, ABC’s newest critically acclaimed comedy, “Home Economics,” returns at its new time – Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT; and “Celebrity Wheel of Fortune” returns on a new night – Sundays at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT, followed by “Supermarket Sweep” at its new time, 9:00 p.m. ET/PT.

Groundbreaking comedy “black-ish” will receive a deserving sendoff as it returns in midseason for its eighth and final run.

The momentous limited series “Women of the Movement” will premiere as a midseason event, shining a light on Emmett Till’s mother, Mamie Till-Mobley, whose fight for justice for her murdered son galvanized the civil rights movement.

Freshman comedies “Maggie” and “Abbott Elementary,” as well as “American Idol,” will also debut midseason.

Additional midseason renewals and pickup decisions on the network’s remaining drama pilots will be made at a later time.

Fall premiere dates will be announced soon.
