Craig Erwich, president, Hulu Originals & ABC Entertainment, today unveiled the ABC Fall 2022 – 2023 schedule, which features a returning slate of established, fan-favorite shows and two new scripted series, both anchored by bold and compelling female leads.
Additionally, ABC adds a sprinkle of star power to long-running game show staples, with the pickup of the all-new, high-stakes Celebrity Jeopardy!, which joins the Sunday night lineup, paired with the return of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune.
“Our fall schedule is a testament to our strong, dynamic programming slate that we’re continuing to nurture with top talent, world-class, award-winning storytellers and marquee titles,” said Erwich.
“By capitalizing on the success of our strongest assets, we’re betting on stability while also introducing and investing in key projects that will allow us to build on our momentum as the No. 1 entertainment network for the third consecutive year.”
The ABC Fall 2022 lineup includes dramas Alaska, from Oscar-winning writer Tom McCarthy (Spotlight) and starring two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank, and The Rookie: Feds, a spinoff of the popular Sunday night police drama The Rookie and starring Niecy Nash-Betts.
The network is also leaning into the strength of its Wednesday night comedy block, having renewed its full roster including legacy series The Conners and The Goldbergs, fan-favorite Home Economics and ABC’s No. 1 new comedy last season from burgeoning star Quinta Brunson – critically-acclaimed breakout hit Abbott Elementary.
These shows will be joined in the fall by previously-announced returning series America’s Funniest Home Videos, Bachelor in Paradise, Big Sky, Celebrity Wheel of Fortune, The Good Doctor, Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie, Shark Tank and Station 19.
Beloved unscripted series also returning midseason include ABC’s No. 1 program this season in Total Viewers and preeminent singing competition series, American Idol, the nation’s guilty pleasure, The Bachelor, and laugh-out-loud courtroom comedy Judge Steve Harvey.
The fall premiere dates will be announced soon and additional midseason announcements will be made at a later time. The ABC Fall 2022 – 2023 programming can also be viewed on Hulu.
