I honestly have no idea what goes on on ABC outside of the hour and a half time on Tuesday that is Agents of SHIELD into The Goldbergs but they seem to have retained a bunch of their shows, like Scandal, Revenge, Grey’s Anatomy, Castle, Once Upon a Time and Nashville. The Goldbergs is the only new comedy that survived the chopping block and, while not setting the world on fire like they probably hoped, SHIELD will be back for another season next year, getting joined by another Marvel show, Agent Carter. Check out what’s coming for new shows, most of which are comedies and the new ABC fall schedule below.
Starring: Karen Gillan, John Cho, Allyn Rachel, David Harewood, Tim Peper, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Natasha Henstridge
Premise: A self-obsessed twentysomething woman is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image.
Starring: Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Yara Shahidi, Miles Brown, Marcus Scribner, Caila Martin, Laurence Fishburne
Premise: An upper-middle class black man struggles to raise his children with a sense of cultural identity despite constant contradictions and obstacles coming from his liberal wife, old-school father and his own assimilated, color-blind kids.

Premise: Dr. Henry Morgan is New York City’s star medical examiner, but what no one knows is Henry studies the dead for a reason: He is immortal. With the help of detective Jo Martinez, the show peels back the layers of Henry’s colorful and long life through their cases.
Starring: Cristela Alonzo, Carlos Ponce, Terri Hoyos, Andrew Leeds, Sam McMurray
Premise: In her sixth year of law school, Cristela is finally on the brink of landing her first big (unpaid) internship at a prestigious law firm. The only problem is that her pursuit of success is more ambitious than her traditional Mexican-American family thinks is appropriate
