ABC Announces Premiere Date for Comedy Galavant; The CW Brings Back Hart of Dixie in January

Galavant

ABC has announced premiere dates for two of its highly anticipated new midseason shows - Galavant, a comedy extravaganza and Marvel's Agent Carter, the second action packed series from the creative minds at Marvel, inspired by the feature films Marvel's Captain America: The First Avenger and Marvel's Captain America: The Winter Soldier, along with the short Marvel One-Shot: Agent Carter. The musical comedy Galavant will premiere on Sunday, January 4, 2015 from 8:00-9:00pm, ET and will run two episodes in the one-hour block each week, and Marvel's Agent Carter premieres on Tuesday, January 6 at 9:00pm ET. Once Upon a Time will return on Sunday, March 1 at 8 and Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will return on Tuesday, March 3 at 9 in their regular time periods with all-new episodes for the second half of the season. Meanwhile, ABC has also announced that the hit TGIT Thursday night dramas, Grey's Anatomy, Scandal, and How to Get Away with Murder, return Thursday, January 29 after a two-month break. The TGIT shows have their fall finales on Nov. 20. It hasn't been announced yet, but How to Get Away with Murder will likely have its season finale on March 5, after completing its 15 episode season.


Hart of Dixie

The CW announced that the new season of Hart of Dixie will return with 10 episodes beginning Friday, January 9 at 9:00pm ET. Rachel Bilson leads a stellar ensemble cast in this fish-out-of-water comedic drama about small-town living, big city attitudes and complicated love triangles set in quirky BlueBell, Alabama. Also on January 9 at 8:00pm ET, Masters of Illusion will return with four original episodes, leading into encore episodes of Whose Line Is It Anyway? at 8:30pm ET. Hosted by actor Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman), Masters of Illusion showcases great escapes, fascinating sleight-of-hand and large scale illusions - each episode more spectacular than the one before - and all in front of a studio audience.
