The 2020-2021 network television season gets underway later this month. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s going to be an atypical fall for the networks. The CW, for example, will hold most of its new and returning shows until January 2021. This fall, the network will air a mix of scripted and unscripted programming, including the final episodes of long-running Supernatural. FOX will also hold many of its biggest scripted hits until January 2021. CBS plans to delay the start of its new season until November, by airing repeats and other programming (including air the first season of Star Trek: Discovery).
What does all this mean for fall preview specials? So far, FOX appears to be the only network with a scheduled fall preview special.
