ABC Sets Fall Premiere Dates for Grey’s Anatomy, The Rookie, & More!

ABC is the second broadcast network to announce its fall premiere dates, and it’s business as usual.

The season gets underway Wednesday, September 21, with the season debuts of The Conners, The Goldbergs, Abbott Elementary, Home Economics, and Big Sky.

This will be a big test for Big Sky, which is moving from Thursday.

It is getting an injection of star power, courtesy of Jensen Ackles and Reba McEntire as the latest mystery gets underway.

Sunday, September 25, marks the series debut of Celebrity Jeopardy, as well as the returns of Celebrity Wheel of Fortune and The Rookie.
