NBC Fall Schedule: This Is Us' Last Hurrah Pushed to 2022, All-L&O Thursdays, B99 Farewell Gets Olympics Launch, Zoey's and Good Girls MIA
NBC is the first broadcast network to unveil its 2021-22 game plan and, um, funny story: For the first time (ever?) there is not a single sitcom on the network’s fall schedule. The prime culprit? The resurgent Law & Order franchise! Read on for more…
♦ NBC is turning over its Thursday lineup, once the hallowed home of Must-See comedies, to Law & Order. Forthcoming spinoff Law & Order: For the Defense will kick things off at 8 pm, followed by SVU and Organized Crime. (For those keeping track at home, Dick Wolf now owns almost 30 percent of NBC’s schedule.)
♦ Brooklyn Nine-Nine‘s 10-episode farewell season will premiere this summer following the conclusion of NBC’s Olympics coverage.
♦ The Voice will only air one cycle next season, in the fall.
♦ This Is Us‘ sixth and final season will premiere at midseason, but the delay contains a silver lining: All 18 episodes will air uninterrupted.
♦ Bubble series Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Good Girls are MIA, but neither show has been cancelled — at least not yet. An NBC rep confirms that renewal decisions will be made in the coming weeks. (Keep tabs on TVLine’s 2021 Renewal Scorecard for the latest.)
