Linear TV Shows

Scripted television series could premiere new seasons as soon as early 2024, depending on how quickly the SAG-AFTRA strike is resolved. For shows to return in mid-March, they must start filming around Thanksgiving and work through the holidays. A more feasible return to the set would be January 2024 for others.
