Summer TV: Here Are the Premiere Dates for Broadcast’s New and Returning Shows

·3-min read

Spring has just arrived, but broadcast TV networks are already looking to the summer, announcing which shows will premiere during what’s traditionally not a peak programming block for NBC, ABC, CBS, Fox and The CW.

While it’s not exactly beach-front primetime real estate, plenty of hit shows still air in the warmer months — especially unscripted ones. This summer will see the returns of hit series like NBC’s “America’s Got Talent” and ABC’s “Bachelor in Paradise,” plus the premieres of new shows like “The Republic of Sarah” on The CW and “Crime Scene Kitchen” on Fox.

See TheWrap’s roundup of broadcast TV’s summer premiere dates — so far — and check back regularly for updates as more are announced by Fox, CBS, NBC, ABC and The CW.
