ABC has revealed its upcoming midseason 2023 slate of programming, including new series premieres such as Will Trent, alongside the return of some of your favorites including The Rookie which is scheduled for a new night and time. The Rookie and The Rookie: Feds are slated to arrive January 3, airing at 8 and 9 pm, respectively.

Following the two-hour block is the debut of Will Trent, based on Karin Slaughter’s New York Times bestselling books. The series, starring Ramón Rodríguez, Erika Christensen, and Iantha Richardson, follows “Special Agent Will Trent of the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI), [who] was abandoned at birth and endured a harsh coming-of-age in Atlanta’s overwhelmed foster care system,” according to an official synopsis. “But now, determined to use his unique point of view to make sure no one is abandoned like he was, Will Trent has the highest clearance rate in the GBI.”

In February, Not Dead Yet, starring Gina Rodriguez, Hannah Simone, and Lauren Ash, will debut. It follows Nell Serrano (Rodriguez), “a broke and newly single self-described disaster, working to restart the life and career she left behind five years ago. When she lands the only job she can find – writing obituaries – Nell starts getting life advice from an unlikely source.” The series is adapted from the book Confessions of a 40-something F**k Up by Alexandra Potter.

According to an official synopsis, “a night of passion leads to love between con man Charlie and undercover CIA officer Emma, who [is] unknowingly on a collision course professionally. While Charlie ramps up the “family business” so he can get out for good, Emma’s closing in on the vengeful criminal who holds Charlie’s family debts in hand – forcing them to reckon with the lies they’ve told so they can save themselves and their families from disastrous consequences.” The series is based on the Korean Broadcasting System series entitled My Fellow Citizens.
