While this fall will mark the introduction of a whole slew of brand new shows, many viewers are just as excited for the return of old favorites like Scandal, Sons of Anarchy, and everything in between. Luckily, the kickoff to the new seasons of these beloved series are just around the corner. Here are the September premiere dates for all of your favorite TV shows.
In addition to its extensive lineup of diverse new shows, the network is welcoming back many of its old favorites in late September. Three of its successful family comedies – The Middle, The Goldbergs, and Modern Family – will air back-to-back-to-back season premieres on September 24.
Looking for something with more love triangles and booze? The channel’s Southern drama, Nashville, will also return that same night. Though the show’s future seemed unclear in the spring, a third season was green-lit after a social media push from fans and producers have since confirmed that lead actress Hayden Panettiere’s real-life pregnancy will be written into the show.
Starting September 24, Thursdays will be dubbed “the Shonda Rhimes block” on ABC. Grey’s Anatomy will kick off its 11th season (and its first without Sandra Oh) on September 25, followed by Scandal and Rhimes’s latest creation, How to Get Away with Murder. Oscar winner Geena Davis has signed on to play a recurring role this season on the long-running medical drama. Meanwhile, Scandal’s fourth season will also feature some notable guest stars, including Portia de Rossi, Sonia Walger, Mary McCormack, and Josh Randall.
Sundays will be equally packed as of September 28, which sees the premieres of Season 2 of Resurrection, Season 4 of Revenge, and, perhaps most notably, Once Upon a Time’s highly anticipated fourth season. The fairytale series is introducing a much-buzzed-about Frozen-themed story arc this upcoming season, starring Georgina Haig.
Other shows returning on ABC are Dancing With the Stars on September 15, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on September 23, and Castle on September 29.
