CS Fall TV Preview!
Comingsoon.net is taking a look at new and returning shows confirmed to premiere this Fall! Check them out below!
The coronavirus pandemic has delayed the production of many of Hollywood’s most anticipated films and shows. Hence, the Fall slate is looking A LOT lighter than previous years. An overwhelming amount of shows haven’t even confirmed/specified their 2020 premiere dates. Shows like the Disney+ Falcon and the Winter Soldier (which hasn’t completed production) didn’t even make its August release. However, banked content like Season 2 of Amazon’s The Boys or Season 4 of FX’s Fargo will be proceeding as normal.
A plethora of shows is still confirmed to premiere this Fall. We’ve compiled the dates for those shows premiering on network television (ABC, CBS, NBC, The CW, and Fox), cable, and streaming services as we move into the cooler months. The list below indicates when the most anticipated new shows and your returning favorites will debut and where.

In the big city, Marnie finds a gang of new friends, all with their foibles, who lead her to an unexpected diagnosis: a form of OCD nicknamed “Pure O,” where her obsessions manifest as intrusive sexual thoughts, and her compulsions are the unseen mental rituals she performs to quiet them.
