Right on schedule — and just before the official beginning of summer — NBC has announced the premiere dates for its new and returning TV shows, debuting in the Fall of 2018. The Peacock Network‘s new 2018-19 television season will kick off with season 15 of The Voice, followed by the series premiere of Manifest.
For now at least, in addition to Manifest — a mystery drama starring Once Upon a Time vet Josh Dallas — the only other new series premieres announced is for medical drama New Amsterdam, starring Blacklist alum, Ryan Egghold, and sitcom I Feel Bad, from executive producer Amy Poehler and writer Aseem Batra.
Meanwhile, aside from The Voice, returning NBC TV series premiering this fall include: This Is Us season three; Chicago Med season four; Chicago Fire season seven; Chicago PD season six; The Good Place season three; Law & Order: SVU season 20; Dateline NBC season 27; Superstore season four; Will & Grace season 10 (2nd season of revival); Blindspot season four; and Midnight, Texas season two.
