Get Your First Look At Every New ABC Show Coming This Fall
With Scandal, Once Upon a Time, and a slew of other television shows gone from the network, ABC is introducing a new slate of TV programs for fall 2018. From dramas to comedies, the new series look super promising and include some very familiar faces, including Castle’s Nathan Fillion and Scandal’s Scott Foley.
Though we have to get through the entire summer before any of these shows debut, we can already guess which shows will be permanent fixtures on ABC along with staples like Black-ish, Grey’s Anatomy, and Modern Family. Check out all of these new shows coming to the network this fall.
A Million Little Things
Psych star James Roday is returning to TV in the new drama series, A Million Little Things. The show focuses on a group of Boston friends who are stuck in a rut with their relationships and their careers. However, things change when a member of their group passes away, and they decided to band together to shift things in their lives.
Together, the friends realize that friendship isn’t made up of one big thing, but instead a million little things. A Million Little Things airs Wednesdays at 10 p.m.
Next: Castle star Nathan Fillion’s new drama
Castle fans rejoice, Nathan Fillion is returning to TV in the drama series, The Rookie. On the show, Fillion stars as John Nolan, a man who leaves small town USA and moves to Los Angeles to become a cop. As the oldest in his rookie class at the academy, John is undoubtedly going to run into quite a few snags.
The show will prove that it’s never too late to start over. The Rookie will air Tuesdays at 10 p.m.
Next: A comedy with a slew of beloved TV stars
Taran Killam, Leighton Meester, and Brad Garrett are all returning to television in the new ABC comedy series, Single Parents. The show focuses on a group of single parents who lean on one another to help raise their children. The series centers on Will (Killam), a struggling single dad who has been so focused on raising his daughter that he’s lost sight of who he is.
Luckily, the other parents all band together to make sure Will finds out who he is again. Catch Single Parents Wednesdays at 9:30 p.m.
Next: Scott Foley’s new sexy drama
If you are already going through Scott Foley withdrawals, then don’t despair, the hunky Scandal alum will return to ABC midseason in a brand new drama, Whiskey Cavalier. On the series, Foley stars as FBI super-agent Will Chase whose code name is Whiskey Cavalier.
Still reeling from a devastating breakup, Will is assigned to work with badass CIA operative Francesca “Frankie” Trowbridge (codename: “Fiery Tribune”), played by The Walking Dead’s Lauren Cohan. Together the two must work together while navigating friendship, romance, and office politics. Things are bound to get a little rocky.
Next: A ’70s set drama
The Kids Are Alright
If you thought ABC was done with their decade comedies, then you’d be wrong. The Kids Are Alright is a ’70s set comedy that follows the Clearys, a traditional Irish-Catholic family. As they try and navigate the decade while living in their working-class neighborhood outside of LA, the Clearys must also contend with their eight rambunctious boys.
The household descends into shambles when the oldest son, Lawrence, returns home to announce that he is quitting the seminary and will instead head off to “save the world.” Buckle in for more than a few laughs when the comedy airs Tuesdays at 8:30 p.m.
Next: A ’90s set spin-off of The Goldbergs
If you adore The Goldbergs, then you’ll adore the show’s ’90s set spin-off, Schooled. The comedy series will focus on the teachers of William Penn Academy, including principal Glascott (Tim Meadows) and Coach Mellor (Bryan Callen).
However, the most exciting and very familiar face on the series will be Lainey Lewis (AJ Michalka). You know her as Erica Goldberg’s bestie. Schooled will drop midseason, and we can’t wait.
Next: A super scandalous drama
ABC’s The Fix is bound to give you The People v. O.J. Simpson vibes. The new drama series stars Robin Tunney as Maya Travis, a former LA district attorney who flees to Washington after losing a high-profile case involving an A-list actor who is accused of committing a double murder.
Maya gets a chance at redemption eight-years later when she is lured back to LA after the same celebrity becomes a suspect in another murder. Lost alum Adewale Akinnouye-Agbaje also stars on the show.
The Fix will drop midseason.
Next: A lush Eva Longoria-produced drama.
Eva Longoria’s executive produced Grand Hotel will be the drama to watch when it heads to ABC midseason. The gorgeously shot show will follow the last family-owned hotel in multicultural Miami Beach.
Draped in wealth and luxury, the hotel, it’s staff and guests all look picturesque. However, the series will be full of drama, scandals, and explosive secrets.
