TV Premiere Dates 2018: When and Where to Watch

Last updated July 19th

In this era of Peak TV, it can be hard to keep up with which shows are coming on when, if they’re taking a break, and when they’re returning. With almost 500 scripted series on the air from the broadcast networks like ABC, Fox, and The CW to cable channels like USA, FX, and Syfy, to premium networks like HBO and Starz, as well as streaming sites like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon … there’s a lot to keep track of. But we have you covered!

Below is a continually updated list of TV premiere dates and times of all scripted returning and debuting series, so you can brace yourselves for the onslaught and prepare your DV-Rs accordingly.

A small note: we do not include reality TV programming, kids shows, or TV movies or specials (for the most part), and with a few choice exceptions. Godspeed, gentle viewers!

For more, check out the cancelled or renewed fates of over 150 scripted series with our TV Lifeline, to help you manage PeakTV.
