When Do Your Fave Shows Return? ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX’s 2024 Primetime Lineups

After having to postpone their traditional fall primetime TV lineups due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, networks have planned an even bigger 2024.

The Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike ended in September 2023 after nearly five months, culminating in better wages and labor laws for its members. The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG-AFTRA), who joined the picket lines in July 2023, came to a tentative agreement with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers (AMPTP) that November.

In the wake of the strikes’ conclusion, ABC and CBS announced in early November 2023 that their 2024 TV schedules are packed with beloved series, including Grey’s Anatomy’s 20th season and the return of NCIS for season 21 and NCIS: Hawai’i for season 3.

While CBS previously had Kathy Bates’ new Matlock revival on the docket for the 2023-2024 season, the show has now been pushed to the 2024-2025 TV season. Poppa’s House, starring Damon Wayans and Damon Wayans Jr., has also been shifted to the next television cycle.

As networks make decisions about their programming, Us Weekly will continue to track what has been renewed and which TV shows have been canceled. Slow Horses was the first show to score a renewal in 2024. In early January, Apple TV+ picked up the series for a fifth season, which will be based on Mick […]

ABC, meanwhile, acquired FOX’s 9-1-1 in May 2023. The police drama will make its new network debut on Thursday, March 14, ahead of Grey’s and Station 19. 9-1-1: Lone Star, however, stayed at FOX and has been pushed from a midseason premiere to a fall 2024 return, according to TV Line.
