NBC has unveiled their Fall 2020 schedule in anticipation of a return to normalcy during the fall television season.
The network revealed its fall 2020 schedule on Tuesday which features a lineup of familiar titles including The Voice, This Is Us, and New Amsterdam. The fall schedule incorporates just one new series which will be the Law & Order spin-off Organized Crime, which features the return of Christopher Meloni’s Elliot Stabler to the Law & Order universe.

Other new shows are planned to debut later in the year or in 2021. These shows include Tina Fey and Robert Carlock’s Mr. Mayor starring Ted Danson and Kenan Thompson’s Kenan.
NBC Entertainment exec Paul Telegdy highlighted the importance of stability during this season, which echoed a similar message to CBC’s from last month.“Thanks to the ingenuity of our creative teams and our partner studios, NBC has assembled a remarkably stable schedule at a time when stability is called for,” Telegdy said.
“With the reopening of the Universal lot for select productions this week, we are confident that our schedule will premiere intact later this fall.”
He also emphasized the importance of racial diversity on television and how NBC will strive to incorporate this even further. The plan is to fund the hiring of a new writer for every scripted series in the upcoming season to provide current shows with new perspectives.
“We are taking this opportunity to offer all of this season’s showrunners the chance to enrich their team with an additional diverse writer at any level. It is not the solution by any means, but it is something we can do right now to take a positive step,” Telegdy said.
