ABC is looking ahead to 2022 with a slew of premiere dates for a reality staple, the swan song of a popular sitcom, two new series and several other returning shows.
One of the rookies, workplace comedy Abbott Elementary, will get an early-season bow at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, December 7. The show will move to its regular 9 p.m. Tuesday slot on January 4 as the lead-in to the final season of Black-ish.
Elsewhere, Season 26 of The Bachelor returns at 8 p.m. Monday, January 3, with new host Jesse Palmer. He replaces original frontman Chris Harrison, who exited the franchise in the summer amid controversy.
The eighth and last season of comedy Black-ish kicks off at 9:30 p.m. Tuesday, January 4, followed by the winter return of rookie drama Queens at 10.
Wednesday, January 5, is winter-premiere day for four series: veteran comedy The Goldbergs at 8 p.m., rookie dramedy The Wonder Years at 8:30, fourth-year sitcom The Conners at 9 p.m., sophomore comedy Home Economics at 9:30. Season 2 of competition series The Chase then premieres at 10 p.m.
New drama Promised Land launches at 10 p.m. Monday, January 24.
The Chase and Promised Land will serve as bridge programming for veteran dramas A Million Little Things and The Good Doctor, respectively, while the latter are on their winter break.
