After Networks Postpone Fall Primetime TV Lineups Due to Strikes, a Promising 2024 Awaits with Packed Schedules Including Grey’s Anatomy & NCIS Returning

In 2023, the traditional fall primetime TV lineups were postponed due to the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, but networks have promised a packed schedule for 2024 following the resolution of the strikes. The 2024 TV schedule includes the return of popular series such as “Grey’s Anatomy” for its 20th season and “NCIS” for season 21, alongside new series premieres and the acquisition of Fox’s “9-1-1” by ABC.

In 2023, networks postponed their traditional fall primetime TV lineups due to WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, promising a bigger 2024 with the return of popular series like “Grey’s Anatomy” and “NCIS” and new acquisitions like Fox’s “9-1-1” on ABC.

Oh boy, 2024’s TV schedule is looking jam-packed, huh? After a bit of a hiccup last year, thanks to both the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes, networks are going all out. They’re promising a bigger, bolder lineup. And honestly? I’m here for it.

The strikes were a bit of a mess, weren’t they? The Writers Guild of America had their pencils down for nearly five months. Then, the actors joined in with SAG-AFTRA hitting pause on performances. It was a tense few months, to say the least.

But, good news came around September and November when both strikes found their resolutions. This meant one thing: TV was back, baby! ABC and CBS wasted no time, teasing us with what’s to come in 2024. And let me tell you, the lineup is juicy.

“Grey’s Anatomy” hitting its 20th season? “NCIS” not far behind with season 21? My DVR is going to be working overtime. CBS is even bringing back “Matlock” with Kathy Bates. Can you believe it? And “Poppa’s House” with Damon Wayans is on the horizon too.

Now, for the real tea. Us Weekly is keeping tabs on all the renewals and cancellations. “Slow Horses” snagged an early renewal for season five on Apple TV+. Drama, drama, drama!

ABC’s making moves too, snagging “9-1-1” from Fox. That’s going to shake things up a bit. And the primetime schedule for 2024? It’s like a who’s who of network television.

“The Bachelor,” “The Conners,” “Abbott Elementary,” and “Judge Steve Harvey” are all making comebacks. And that’s just scratching the surface. February’s looking busy with “American Idol” and “What Would You Do?” making their returns.

CBS isn’t slacking either. “Tracker,” “The Neighborhood,” and “Bob Hearts Abishola” are all set for February. And let’s not forget the NCIS universe. It’s expanding faster than my waistline during the holidays.

“Survivor” fans, get ready. Season 46 kicks off with a two-hour premiere at the end of February. And “The Amazing Race”? It’s not slowing down, with season 36 bringing more globe-trotting adventures.

FOX is throwing its hat in the ring too. “Celebrity Name That Tune” and “The Floor” are starting the year off. And “Grimsburg” and “Krapopolis”? They’re giving animation fans something to look forward to.

FX and Hulu are joining forces, bringing us “American Horror Story: Delicate Part 2” and “Welcome to Wrexham.” And for those craving something a bit more real, “The New York Times Presents: Broken Horses” is a documentary to watch out for.

NBC’s not being left in the dust either. “Extended Family” and “Night Court” are bringing the laughs. And for the final season drama, “La Brea” is wrapping up its story.

So, what’s the moral of the story? 2024 is going to be a wild ride for TV fans. Whether you’re into dramas, comedies, or reality TV, there’s something for everyone. Just make sure your remote’s batteries are charged. You’re going to need it.
