TV shows are coming back soon, and that means we'll get to see our favorite TV couples.

As much as we love watching the will they/won't they tension play out in early seasons, there's something about stability that's appealing too. In some instances, a couple has made it past that period filled with question marks (like NCIS: LA's Kensi and Deeks), while for others, we've seen them together from the start (like This Is Us' Randall and Beth).

These characters are succeeding at work, but they can use a little love in their lives.

Scroll down for the 12 most solid couples on TV heading into the new season. (Both actors must be series regulars on a broadcast network show.)

Chimney and Maddie (9-1-1)

After a couple of harrowing experiences at the hands of her abusive ex-husband, the firefighter (Kenneth Choi) and paramedic (Jennifer Love Hewitt) were stronger than ever in Season 3 — and ended the season expecting a baby!

Anthony Anderson Tracee Ellis Ross black-ish Dre Bow
ABC/Ron Tom

Dre and Bow (black-ish)

They’ve been among the most consistently stable relationships on TV, though we did watch them get through a very rough patch back in Season 4. But we’re happy the married couple (Anthony Anderson and (Tracee Ellis Ross) is heading into the comedy’s seventh season together as always.

Will Estes Vanessa Ray Blue Bloods Jamie Eddie

Jamie and Eddie (Blue Bloods)

After not crossing the line because they rode together, Jamie (Will Estes) and Eddie (Vanessa Ray) surprised everyone with their engagement at the end of Season 8. Now, they’re married and they’ve even had the kids talk.

Andy Samberg Melissa Fumero Brooklyn Nine Nine Jake Amy

Jake and Amy (Brooklyn Nine-Nine)

Jake (Andy Samberg) and Amy (Melissa Fumero) are still going strong and new parents! And if they can survive the annual Halloween (and whatever other holiday) heists, despite some of the crazier things they’ve done to each other (like tasers as gifts), they can probably make it through anything.

Taylor Kinney Miranda Rae Mayo Chicago Fire Severide Kidd

Severide and Kidd (Chicago Fire)

The rough patches (and hopefully the jealousy and anyone trying to get between them) are in the past for these firefighters (Taylor Kinney and Miranda Rae Mayo). There were a couple One Chicago weddings last year, but we don’t need to see rings on their fingers to know we don’t need to be worried about their future.

Chris Carmack Caterina Scorsone Grey's Anatomy Link Amelia
ABC/Gilles Mingasson

Amelia and Link (Grey's Anatomy)

There was a bit of “who’s the father?” drama when it came to Amelia’s (Caterina Scorsone) pregnancy on the ABC medical series, but by the (early) end of Season 16, she and Link (Chris Carmack) were happy new parents. (And their relationship is probably solid enough to hold up the hospital compared to that of the other doctor who could’ve been the dad.)

Caity Lotz Jes Macallan Legends of Tomorrow Sara Ava
Jack Rowand/The CW

Sara and Ava (Legends of Tomorrow)

Sara (Caity Lotz) may have been abducted by aliens at the end of Season 5, but we’re not worried about her and girlfriend Ava’s (Jes Macallan) relationship in the slightest. It may just be some time before we see them traveling through time on the Waverider together again.

Athena Karkanis Josh Dallas Manifest Grace Ben

Ben and Grace (Manifest)

After getting past the fact that Ben (Josh Dallas) returned after five years with the rest of Flight 828’s passengers and Grace (Athena Karkanis) had moved on in that time, they found their way back to one another, welcomed a new addition to the family, and are dealing with the Callings leading the returned (and Grace, thanks to her pregnancy, which confirmed the father’s identity) to help people.

Eric Christian Olsen Daniela Ruah NCIS Los Angeles Deeks Kensi
Bill Inoshita/CBS

Kensi and Deeks (NCIS: Los Angeles)

Kensi (Daniela Ruah) and Deeks’ (Eric Christian Olsen) has been one of the most stable relationships across all three NCIS shows, once they got past denying they had a “thing.” They’re married, trying to have a baby, and among the best partners in the field on any procedural drama.

Emily VanCamp Matt Czuchry The Resident Proposal Nic Conrad
Guy D'Alema/FOX

Conrad and Nic (The Resident)

A wedding date may be up in the air for the engaged couple — Conrad (Matt Czuchry) had the perfect proposal planned when Nic (Emily VanCamp) was being a bit more logical about discussing their future — but they’re happy, they’re together, and they’re alive, and that may be the best we can ask for when it comes to relationships on medical dramas planning to incorporate the coronavirus pandemic into the upcoming season.

Vanessa Morgan Madelaine Petsch Riverdale Toni Cheryl
Dean Buscher/The CW

Cheryl and Toni (Riverdale)

True, their relationship status after the upcoming Season 5 time jump may be uncertain, but heading into the high school episodes when the series returns in 2021, we know that fan-favorite couple Choni — Cheryl (Madelaine Petsch) and Toni (Vanessa Morgan) — will be just fine, thanks to a photo executive producer Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa shared from prom.

Sterling K Brown Susan Kelechi Watson This Is Us Randall Beth
Ron Batzdorff/NBC

Randall and Beth (This Is Us)

We’d prefer to forget that awful voicemail, so we tend to focus on the positive: Randall (Sterling K. Brown) and Beth (Susan Kelechi Watson) have made it through the hard times and we know they’re still together in the years to come, thanks to the flash-forwards.
