There is good news for fans of This Is Us this fall!

After previously announcing that the beloved series would return for season 5 in November, NBC has now bumped up the premiere date and fans will now get the special two-hour season premiere on Tuesday, Oct. 27 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET/PT.

After the global pandemic wreaked havoc on the television and film industry by completely halting production, This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman revealed that they were most definitely going to address the pandemic in the show. He took to Twitter to share, “We’ve decided to attack things head on.”

Chicago Med, Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D. will premiere their respective seasons on Wednesday, Nov. 11 starting at 8 p.m. ET/PT.  The week continues with the season 22 premiere of Law & Order: SVU on Thursday, Nov. 12, and caps off with the season 8 launch of The Blacklist on Friday, Nov. 13.

October will also see the return of The Voice for season 19. The show will see Blake Shelton, Gwen Stefani, Kelly Clarkson and John Legend return as coaches and the two-night launch will be on Monday, Oct. 19 and Tuesday, Oct. 20.
