ABC's fall schedule will get underway without scripted originals, it has been announced. 

The network on Thursday announced premiere dates for unscripted series such as The Bachelorette, Supermarket Sweep, and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire. 

These premieres mean that the network's scripted series will not be back on the air in September this year.

Grey's Anatomy, Station 19, The Good Doctor, as well as comedies like The Conners and The Goldbergs have now been pulled from the fall schedule ... for now.

The network's scripted series are gearing up to return to production, but it will all come down to when episodes are ready.
