Notes: Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, today unveiled the ABC primetime schedule for the 2022-2023 fall season, featuring a strong, returning slate of established, fan-favorite shows and two new powerhouse scripted series, both anchored by bold and compelling female leads. Additionally, ABC adds a sprinkle of star power to long-running game show staples, with the pickup of the all-new, high-stakes Celebrity Jeopardy!, which joins the Sunday night lineup, paired with the return of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.

This fall, ABC debuts dramas Alaska, from Oscar®-winning writer Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and starring two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank, and the The Rookie: Feds, a spinoff of the popular Sunday night police drama The Rookie and starring Niecy Nash-Betts.

The network is also leaning into the strength of its Wednesday night comedy block, having renewed its full roster including legacy series The Conners and The Goldbergs, fan-favorite Home Economics and ABC’s No. 1 new comedy last season from burgeoning star Quinta Brunson – critically acclaimed breakout hit Abbott Elementary.

These shows will be joined in the fall by previously announced returning series America’s Funniest Home Videos, Bachelor in Paradise, Big Sky, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie, Shark Tank and Station 19.

The freshman comedy Not Dead Yet, starring Gina Rodriguez, will debut midseason, along with the return of the Peabody Award-nominated comedy The Wonder Years and the drama A Million Little Things.

Beloved unscripted series also returning midseason include ABC’s No. 1 program this season in Total Viewers and preeminent singing competition series, American Idol, the nation’s guilty pleasure, The Bachelor, and laugh-out-loud courtroom comedy Judge Steve Harvey.

Additional midseason announcements will be made at a later time.

Fall premiere dates will be announced soon.
