All five of the broadcast networks — ABC, CBS, The CW, FOX, and NBC — have released their plans for the fall portion of the 2020-21 season. Due to the coronavirus-19 threat and television production shutdown, some of the networks have had to take unorthodox approaches. FOX and The CW filled their fall schedules with mostly ready-to-go programming, saving regular shows for mid-season. Depending on how the production restart goes, the networks may have to rework some of their plans.
