TV's fall premiere dates are here, and it really does feel like nature is healing. 

ABC, CBS, NBC and the CW have all released their fall premiere schedules, and most of the broadcast shows are back to premiering in September and October. Hopefully, if all goes well these next few months, we might not even have to watch characters speak dialogue through masks! TV, at least, might look normal once again. 

But of course, unlike the last time the broadcast networks had a normal schedule, there are now twice as many streaming services and a whole bunch of new shows to compete with, so if you're good at picking and choosing your television shows, you've got a whole world to pick and choose from. If you're one of those people (*raises hand*) who watches everything, we wish you all the luck with finding time to do literally anything else. Your August, September and October are about to be real busy. 

Renewed and Canceled TV Shows 2021 Guide

Below, you'll find premiere dates for all your old favorite shows and some soon-to-be new favorite shows as well, but you'll want to stay tuned to this page, because this isn't even the end of the list. Fox has yet to release its fall premiere dates, and midseason shows are still coming (like This Is Us). Plus, we haven't yet heard when high-profile shows like Succession season three, the Dexter revival, or You season three will arrive! 

So get out your calendars and start scrolling down, and be sure to check back soon for more.
