As we wave goodbye to an eventful 2018-19 TV season, it’s time to look ahead at what’s new for the fall. The five broadcast networks have begun ordering shows for 2019-20, and here is Deadline’s annual photo gallery of the new comedies and dramas coming to the airwaves. We’ll update this post as more series are picked up.
The list of newly greenlighted series is growing after ABC kicked off the derby with its pickup of Black-ish spinoff Mixed-ish. Since then we’ve had the CW picking up three dramas based on familiar IP — including two more from uber producer Greg Berlanti with Batwoman and Riverdale spinoff Katy Keene — and NBC anointing Council of Dads. ABC returned with three more pickups for legal drama For Life (fka Untitled Hank Steinberg/Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson Project) and comedy United We Fall.
A flurry of last minute pickups included NBC’s Perfect Harmony, Lincoln and Indebted (fka Uninsured), along with Emergence, an NBC pilot which moved to ABC, and Fox’s Filthy Rich starring Kim Cattrall.
Among the stars also set for new series thus far are How I Met Your Mother alumna Cobie Smulders, playing a private eye in ABC’s untitled drama based on the graphic novel Stumptown; multiple-series veteran Jimmy Smits in NBC’s legal drama Bluff City Law; and Designated Survivor actor and Obama White House aide Kal Penn in the Peacock’s comedy Sunnyside.
