NBC Fall Schedule: SVU Spinoff, Manifest, and More!

at .

With production slowly but surely getting underway on TV shows that were shuttered due to the coronavirus pandemic, NBC has announced its fall schedule. 

Unlike FOX and The CW, the network is planning on bringing back much of its original programming later this year, with one new drama joining the fall lineup. 

Law & Order: Organized Crime is the SVU spinoff starring Christopher Meloni, and it will be paired with its parent series on Thursday nights.

This will allow the two shows to have natural crossovers in a similar way to the #OneChicago franchise on Wednesday nights. 

Chicago Fire, Med, and P.D. will be staying put on Wednesdays, which makes sense. 

All three have posted solid ratings, so NBC does not need to do anything with them. 

Mondays will see Manifest return in the fall after being banished to midseason for the 2019-20 TV season. This is great news for fans because they will not have to wait that long to find out what happens next.

NBC tried to launch Bluff City Law in the slot last fall, but it failed to garner much traction. 

With two hours of Law & Order on Thursdays, the network is scaling back its comedy roster and will press on with a one-hour comedy block on the night. 

"With the reopening of the Universal lot for select productions this week, we are confident that our schedule will premiere intact later this fall,” entertainment chairman Paul Telegdy said in a statement.

For now, all of these shows are slated to return in the fall.
