The drama continues midseason as James Spader and The Blacklist return for the 10th season of the beloved stalwart series, along with second seasons for a pair of comedy hits, American Auto and Grand Crew, which reached more than 24 million and 17 million viewers, respectively, across U.S. viewing platforms this year.
Also joining the lineup is the debut of Night Court, a sequel to the beloved legal sitcom with John Larroquette reprising his role as D.A. Dan Fielding and starring Melissa Rauch as Judge Abby Stone.
The world of unscripted competition is red hot for midseason and summer with a pair of competition imports: new game show The Wheel, hosted by comedian Michael McIntyre and based on a smash hit UK format, features contestants aiming to win big with the help of celebrity guests playing on a giant spinning wheel, and Dutch format Million Dollar Island, which will feature 100 contestants who attempt to forge friendships and build alliances as they plot to stay on a remote desert island for up to 50 days and compete to win their share of the ultimate $1 million prize.
Returning competition favorites are also on the menu as Jimmy Fallon hosts celebrities for more musical fun and games in the second season of That’s My Jam, and viewer favorite The Wall returns to the party. Dick Wolf also enters the unscripted space with the docuseries LA Fire and Rescue, which follows the real-life heroes of the Los Angeles County Fire Department.
As part of NBC’s rolling pilot process, the following projects have been picked up to pilot with decisions yet to be made on series greenlights: Blank Slate, Found, Irrational, Unbroken and an untitled drama from Mike Daniels. With NBC’s 52-week scheduling strategy, these pilots — if picked up to series — could be possibilities for later in the 2022-23 season or could roll over to the 2023-24 season.
