ABC released a list of important dates and premieres for its upcoming season today, and it’s a lot.
The 72nd Annual Emmy Awards will premiere on Sept. 20. There is no word yet on who will host, but nominations for awards will be announced on July 14.
Following the success of its Little Mermaid musical, ABC will be producing Young Frankenstein Live. Mel Brooks will be producing the musical based on his 1974 classic reimagining of Mary Shelly’s novel. An official airdate will be announced later, along with the cast, but you can expect to be crying from laughter sometime in the fall.
Let’s be honest: Nothing can top a Young Frankenstein musical produced by the comedic genius who originally brought the story to life, but below is everything else that was announced if you really don’t think that’s enough.
- The Connors will be live on Feb. 11 and cover the first democratic primary during the episode.
- Shark Tank returns on Feb. 28.
- A new series, called The Baker and the Beauty, about a baker who falls in love with an international superstar will premiere on April 6.
- Modern Family will wave goodbye to audiences on April 8.
- American Housewife returns on April 15.
- The long-loved series How to Get Away with Murder will have its final episode on May 14.
