ABC Announces Fall Premiere Dates For 'Scandal,' 'Marvel's Inhumans' and More
Freddie Highmore in The Good Doctor.
ABC has announced the premiere dates for both returning and new series for the 2017-18 season, with the 25th season of Dancing with the Stars leading the charge on Monday, September 18.
New dramas premiering this fall are The Good Doctor, from executive producer David Shore (“House”) and starring Freddie Highmore as a young surgeon with autism and savant syndrome; Kevin (Probably) Saves the World (formerly The Gospel of Kevin), featuring Jason Ritter as a self-absorbed person on a downward spiral who’s presented with a mission to save the world; the epic adventure Marvel’s Inhumans, based on the legendary comic book characters; and Ten Days in the Valley, starring Kyra Sedgwick as a TV producer whose young daughter goes missing. The comedy The Mayor rounds out the slate of new shows, starring Brandon Micheal Hall as a rapper who runs for office as a publicity stunt – and ends up winning.
Other returning shows with new timeslots are American Housewife (Wednesdays, 9:30-10:00 p.m. ET), Fresh Off the Boat (Tuesdays, 8:30-9:00 p.m. ET), Once Upon a Time (Fridays, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET), The Toy Box (Sundays, 7:00-8:00 p.m. ET), To Tell the Truth (Sundays, 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET); and Shark Tank (two-hour season premiere Sunday, October 1, from 8:00-10:00 p.m. ET; then Sundays, 9:00-10:00 p.m. ET, beginning October 8).
