ABC Shakes Up Thursdays With Katey Sagal’s ‘Rebel’ Premiere & ‘AMLT’ Move in Spring 2021
ABC is shaking up Thursdays.
The network announced a new schedule for Spring 2021, and along with three series premieres come different return dates (and a new day) for established dramas. Station 19, Grey’s Anatomy, and A Million Little Things will return on March 11, a week later than originally planned, and AMLT will be moving to a new night in April.
As for the three new series with familiar faces coming to ABC, first comes the Rebel Wilson-hosted dog grooming competition series Pooch Perfect on March 30, followed by sibling comedy Home Economics starring Topher Grace on April 7. Next up is the Erin Brockovich-inspired drama Rebel starring Katey Sagal, which joins the Thursday night lineup on April 8.
“Honestly, I didn’t know if I was going to do a TV show again,” Grace admits in the video below. Watch as he details what made him say yes.
“I bring the CEOs of multi-national corporations to their knees — and not in a sexy, good-time way,” Sagal’s Annie “just call me Rebel” Bello says in the promo below. It looks like she’s going to fit right in with Station 19 and Grey’s.
