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.
