[ # ] ABC renews 19 shows and cancels two that I like
May 21st, 2020 under ABC

While The CW, CBS, and Fox announced their schedule for 2020-2021, ABC is not ready to do that as they wait to see what our futures look like after we get through the coronavirus pandemic. Instead of telling us what shows will air when, they are letting us know what shows they will be when they can tell us that.

They already picked up The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, Station 19, America’s Funniest Videos, The Bachelorette, and American Idol for another season, and those shows will be joined by 13 others: American Housewife, The Bachelor, black-ish, The Conners, Dancing with the Stars, The Goldbergs, A Million Little Things, mixed-ish, The Rookie, Shark Tank, Stumptown, 20/20 and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.

What is missing? The Goldberg’s spinoff Schooled (hopefully Freeform will save it), the delightful Single Parents (this one really pisses me off), Bless This Mess that wasn’t blessed, and the painfully boring Emergence.

What will replace them? Big Sky, Call Your Mother, and the previously announced Supermarket Sweep hosted by Leslie Jones.

To read about the two new scripted shows, then



From visionary storyteller David E. Kelley (“Big Little Lies”) comes “Big Sky,” a thriller created by Kelley, who will write multiple episodes and serve as showrunner in its premiere season.
