ABC has announced that they will be renewing 19 shows and canceled five as they release next season's lineup.


ABC has announced their line up for next season, with plans to renew 19 shows and cancel five.

Amongst the renewals for the 2020-2021 season will be "American Housewife", "The Bachelor", "The Conners", "Dancing with the Stars", and "The Goldbergs".


Like other networks, ABC has focused on renewing most of its shows in the face of ongoing production shutdown caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

As virtually no pilots were able to be complete, ABC only picked up "Call Your Mother" from Kari Lizer and "Big Sky" from veteran showrunner David E. Kelly. Karey Burke president of ABC entertainment said,

“At a time when we are physically apart and shared experiences matter more than ever, these shows will build on the strategy that has made us No.1 this season – bringing people together.”

Other shows facing renewal include "Black-ish", "Mixed-ish", "Shark Tank", "A Million Little Things", "20/20", "The Rookie", and "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire".

Fan's favorite "Grey's Anatomy" will also be making a comeback as well as popular singing competition, "American Idol", "Station 19", and "The Good Doctor".

Burke spoke of their commitment to delivering quality programming


Amongst the shows being canceled is new-comer 'Bless this Mess' about a couple from New York that moves to Alaska to live on a farm. "Single Parents" also joins the list of shows returning.

While production has stalled for most shows, Burke spoke of their commitment to delivering quality programming saying,

“Our top priority is now to work with our studio partners to ensure a safe return to production so that we can build on the strong momentum of a winning line-up.”


The network had also previously announced the release of a reality series called "Supermarket Sweep" starring Leslie Jones.

However, premier dates are not being released due to the industry-wide production shutdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Other shows not making a comeback next season include "Schooled", '"Emergence", and the reboot of "Kids Say the Darndest Things".

ABC released its plan later than usual, while decisions on "The Beauty and the Baker" as well as "For Life" have yet to be announced.
