NBC

NBC has announced premiere dates for its 2018-19 fall schedule, which includes Sunday Night Football, This Is Us, the launch of Oscar winner Robert Zemeckis' new drama, Manifest, The Voice, Tuesday night's new Ryan Eggold-starrer New Amsterdam, the new season of Will & Grace, and the third season of Mike Schur's mind-bending comedy The Good Place. The network begins its new season Monday, Sept. 24 at 8 p.m. ET/PT with a two-hour telecast of the Blind Auditions for season 15 of The Voice, which features coaches Kelly Clarkson, Jennifer Hudson, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton. The Voice will immediately be followed at 10 p.m. by the premiere of Manifest, an emotionally rich, unexpected mystery journey that is jump-started following a turbulent but seemingly routine flight.

This Is Us makes its highly anticipated season three return on Tuesday, Sept. 25 at 9 p.m. immediately following The Voice. At 10 p.m. is the premiere of New Amsterdam, which stars Ryan Eggold as hospital medical director Dr. Max Goodwin, who sets out to tear up bureaucracy, provide exceptional care to patients and return the hospital to the glory that put it on the map. Wednesday, Sept. 26 launches the all-Chicago lineup as Chicago Med begins its fourth season at 8 p.m., Chicago Fire starts its seventh season at 9 p.m. and the evening concludes at 10 p.m. with the sixth season premiere of Chicago P.D. Mike Schur's award-winning comedy The Good Place will begin its third season with an hourlong episode on Thursday, Sept. 27 beginning at 8 p.m., leading into the two-hour premiere of Law & Order: SVU, which begins its 20th season on a new night.

The following Thursday, Oct. 4, will see the return of comedy favorites Superstore at 8 p.m. and Will & Grace at 9 p.m., with I Feel Bad launching at 9:30 p.m. Finally, Blindspot, starring Sullivan Stapleton and Jaimie Alexander, begins its fourth season at 8 p.m. Friday, Oct. 12 and Midnight, Texas starts season two at 9 p.m. Friday, Oct. 26.

Ken Lawson (The Parkers) returns as Jay's thirty-something illegitimate son from a short-lived fling now in on the family business, as does John Marshall Jones (The Smart Guy) as fellow barber and pal Smitty. Among this season's storylines: Marriage planning, pressures of single life, love triangles, hilarious barbershop/beauty shop camaraderie and much more. Guest stars will include Dorion Renaud, Michael Jai White, Kyla Pratt, Emmanuel Hudson, Angie Stone, Wendy Raquel Robinson, Vanessa Simmons, Flex Alexander, Milan Christopher and more.

In 2017, the season three double-episode premiere of In The Cut ranked as Tuesday night's #1 sitcom vs. all ad-supported cable programming in its time period in Households, Persons 18-49, P25-54 and Total Viewers among Bounce's target audience of African Americans. This series was created by Bentley Kyle Evans and is produced by Evans and partner Trenten Gumbs, both of whom produce the Bounce TV hit original series Family Time.
