Fall TV is just around the corner and we are so excited! With all of the new and old programming coming back to our screens, there is no shortage of shows to watch on all of our favorite networks. Of course, not every show can premiere in September and this is true with plenty of NBC programming. There are some NBC shows premiering and returning in 2022 during the midseason

Even though these shows are highly anticipated, the scheduling of the 2021-22 television season meant they would be held until 2022. So which shows will be making their debut when the new year begins?

While we do not have exact dates yet for when these shows return, we still wanted to give a brief overview of some NBC shows have been held for the midseason and what they are about.

Let’s go over the NBC shows premiering and returning at some point next year.

In this spinoff of America’s Got Talent, the show will find contestants taking part in various daredevil type of acts. Simon Cowell is an executive producer and will also serve as a judge. No airdate has been released, so it may air sometime in 2022.

American Auto

This comedy show revolves around employees in the auto industry, who struggle with the changing layout of the industry as time goes on. The show’s synopsis mentions that the new CEO may not know much about cars, but has plenty of experience in leadership. We will see the likes of Ana Gasteyer and Harriet Dyer taking part in the series.

The Thing About Pam

This limited series starring actress Renee Zellweger focuses on a real life true crime event. A woman named Betsy Faria was stabbed to death in 2011 after a chemotherapy appointment. At first, her husband was looked at as a suspect until the actual perpetrator was eventually discovered. The series will also star Josh Duhamel, Katy Mixon, and Judy Greer. So far, there is no set airdate.

This Is Us

The sixth and final season of the hit show will air during the midseason to allow for less disruptions like last year during the height of the pandemic. While not much is known about what will happen, we do know that tissues are going to be a staple every week during the new episodes.

Transplant

Transplant is a Canadian based television show following Dr. Bashir Hamed, a Syrian doctor who starts working at a hospital in Toronto. Following a successful first season, it was renewed for a second season. However, due to the pandemic, it has been pushed back in terms of a release date.
