New and Returning Series on Broadcast, Cable and Streaming – Deadline

Read more

Winter is the new fall this Covid-impacted TV season. Because of the lengthy production shutdown in the first months of the coronavirus pandemic, Fox and the CW delayed the rollout of their regular fall 2020 lineups, and a slew of other series intended for fall 2020 debut also are slated to premiere in early 2021 instead.

With uncertainty surrounding production as Covid outbreaks frequently pause filming, a number of premiere dates are still TBD, as networks and streamers often wait until last minute to set debuts so they are sure than the new seasons would be completed successfully.

That said, here’s our annual list of midseason/winter premiere dates for new and returning series. It covers hundreds of broadcast, cable and streaming programs debuting from today through March 31 and includes shows that were on hiatus and some one-off specials such as awards shows.
