ABC has finally put the finishing touches on their Fall 2012 lineup and announced premiere dates for new and returning series. It seems like just yesterday we were saying our goodbyes to the network shows for the summer, with the intensity of Breaking Bad and the silliness of True Blood keeping us company until the fall season, but it’s about time to start looking to the Fall 2012 TV lineup.
Fan favorites like Modern Family, Revenge, and Once Upon a Time will premiere in the normal late-September slot, but we’ll have to wait until October for the return of Happy Endings and Suburgatory. For my money, the most promising new show on ABC’s schedule is the Connie Britton-fronted drama Nashville, which premieres on October 10th. Body of Proof, Wife Swap, and new shows Red Widow and Zero Hour are being held until midseason. Hit the jump to take a look at the full list of premiere dates.
Upfronts Day 3: Commence! Over the last two days, we’ve seen the new fall 2012 schedules for NBC and Fox, as well as trailers for some of the new series that those networks will be offering. Today it’s ABC’s turn, and their new schedule has a couple of change-ups for returning series. The fan-favorite drama Revenge has taken over Desperate Housewives’ Sunday night spot (if you weren’t aware, DH had its series finale this past weekend), and the comedies Happy Endings and Don’t Trust the B— in Apartment 23 will be moving to Tuesday nights.
Tuesday is fast becoming the new comedy night, as NBC has set their two most high profile new comedies—The New Normal and Go On—for Tuesday, and that night is currently host to Fox’s all-comedy block that includes New Girl and Mindy Kaling’s The Mindy Project. In other words, you’re probably gonna have to do some in-depth DVR scheduling. Hit the jump to check out the full ABC schedule. We’ll have trailers for the new series up once they’re available.
In addition to the series renewed by ABC, we’ve got some new series pick-ups, along with a couple more renewals and some unfortunate cancellations. Here they are at a glance:
- Renewals: Private Practice, Body of Proof, Don’t Trust the B in Apartment 23, Last Man Standing and Scandal

Today, via press release, the network announced the crime drama Castle, the half-hour comedy Modern Family, the sex comedy Cougar Town, the sitcom The Middle and the medical dramas Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice will all be around in the fall another season.
