While ABC had already released some of their midseason schedule, today the network went ahead and made it clear precisely when a few of their shows were going to be coming back in the spring. Think of this as them preemptively making sure there was as much information out there as possible about some of their programs.
First, we’ve got the news that “Once Upon a Time” will return on Sunday, March 5 with the remainder of its season. Tremendous news! There are still many episodes left to go, and unlike some past seasons, the remainder of the story this time around is still going to be fairly relevant to what happened in the first batch. It’s a little bit of a change from the past, where we’ve had two batches of episodes that really weren’t related to one another at all.
As for the remainder of the schedule, check out some of the notable dates below! As a reminder, all times listed are Eastern Standard.
Monday, February 27 – Thursday, March 2
9:00 – “When We Rise” (miniseries, two hours each night)
Sunday, March 5
8:00 – “Once Upon a Time”
9:00 – “Time After Time” (new series, two-hour premiere)
Wednesday, March 8
10:00 – “Designated Survivor”
Tuesday, March 9
10:00 – “The Catch”
Sunday, March 12
10:00 – “American Crime”
Wednesday, March 29
8:30 – “Imaginary Mary” (new series, special premiere)
Tuesday, April 4
9:30 – “Imaginary Mary” (time period premiere)
Will either of these new series work? That’s a good question, and unfortunately for the time being we’re not altogether optimistic about the majority of them. We’d probably argue that we are the most hopeful for a show like “Time After Time” just because it’s H.G. Wells and we love Freddie Stroma — “Imaginary Mary” is just a weird concept and most of its previews so far have been pretty panned by folks in the TV community.
