NBC has joined the rest of the networks in announcing its plans for the 2020-2021 season.

And as NBC Entertainment Chairman Paul Telegdy notes, “stability” is the key word when looking at its fall 2020 schedule. For the most part, nothing is really changing: This Is Us remains paired with New Amsterdam on Tuesdays, Wednesdays are still One Chicago’s night, and Thursdays still have comedies followed by a Law & Order series (now, with an addition).

“Thanks to the ingenuity of our creative teams and our partner studios, NBC has assembled a remarkably stable schedule at a time when stability is called for,” Telegdy said in a statement. “With the reopening of the Universal lot for select productions this week, we are confident that our schedule will premiere intact later this fall. We design shows for longevity and this schedule remains a powerful propulsive force for shows to start here and carry on entertaining across generations.”

The network also revealed the programming being held for midseason and next summer: new series Mr. MayorKenan, and Young Rock; returning favorites Good Girls and Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist; game shows Ellen’s Game of Games, Jimmy Fallon’s musical That’s My Jam, and Small Fortune; and alternative-scripted series True Story.
