Is Emergence on tonight, Dec. 17?

Emergence is the twisty mystery on ABC. We usually get new episodes on Tuesday nights, but is that the case this week? Is Emergence on tonight, Dec. 17?

Our Tuesday nights have been mostly filled with the tech mystery, Emergence. There have been the odd weeks of reruns or specials, but for the most part, we’ve followed Jo’s journey to learn more about Piper and understand where she came from. So, will that story continue tonight? Will Emergence be on tonight, Dec. 17?

Sadly, there isn’t a new episode of the series tonight. Dec. 12 saw the winter finale air. That’s the series on a break until the new year, which is common for all network shows now. It’s very uncommon for a show to run through the holiday season because the ratings dip.

What about a rerun? There won’t be one of those, either. ABC is taking a break from Emergence for at least this week. Instead, there will be reruns of The Connors and Bless This Mess in the 10-11 p.m. slot.

Before that, ABC will air a bunch of holiday-themed specials, including Shrek the Halls and Olaf’s Frozen Adventure. These are going to be perfect to watch with the whole family.

When will new episodes of Emergence return? The next part of the story continues on Jan. 7, 2020. There isn’t too long to wait, but it’s still a longer wait than we would like. While the show is still waiting to be renewed, at least the reveals have been happening fast on the series and there’s hope there won’t be too many questions left over at the end of the 13-episode season.
