TV Kiese's Fall TV Premiere List For New And Returning Shows

Sep 8, 2020

Welcome to a fall TV season unlike any other. Most of your favorite shows – This Is Us, Bull, NCIS, The Good Doctors – won't return until November or sometime next year because of production delays due to COVID-19.

But you'll find some returning favorites here, including The Voice and The Simpsons.

And to be sure, there will be a few new fall shows, such as Fox's Filthy Rich primetime soap with Kim Cattrall held from last year's schedule.
