Fans of the sitcom Roseanne will be delighted to learn that the show will not be subject to a midseason break and will remain in its regular time slot.


As reported by TV Line, new episodes from the second season are lined up and ready. Unfortunately, other shows were held for midseason, including American Idol and The Bachelor. 

Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, Whiskey Cavalier, The Fix, Grand Hotel and For The People will also be subjected to a midseason break. 

Also returning in the fall will be season 15 of Grey's Anatomy, season 5 of How To Get Away With Murder and The Goldbergs as well as Modern Family's 10th season.


The Good Doctor and The Rookie's schedule will remain unaffected, while Dancing With The Stars, Fresh Off The Boat and Speechless will be moved to new time slots. 

According to Inquisitr, Roseanne's high ratings exceeded expectations, and the waiting period between the season 1 finale and season 2 premiere will be 'very brief.' 

Viewers can tune into the controversial show during the network's 'family comedy night, and Roseanne's timeslot remains on Tuesday evenings at 8 pm on ABC. 

Only two more episodes of season one of Roseanne remain, and the network teased viewers by revealing that the Connor family will face 'interesting plot twists.' 


Thursday evenings are unofficially known as the 'night of drama' and will boast a line up of Grey's Anatomy at 8 pm, its spin-off show, Station 19 at 9 pm and How To Get Away With Murder at 10 pm. 

Fridays feature a reshuffled schedule, and Fresh Off The Boat will slip into its new 8 pm time slot, with Speechless following at 8:30 pm, Child Support at 9 pm and 20/20 at 10 pm. 

Unfortunately, several ABC shows got the boot, and viewers are enraged that Quantico, Deception and Designated Survivor will not be renewed. 

Zach Braff's Alex Inc, Kevin Saves The World, The Mayor and Marvel's Inhumans were also canceled, along with Once Upon A Time, Scandal and The Middle.
