As we're setting our DVRs for the upcoming summer TV season, NBC and the other networks are hard at work putting together the upcoming fall TV schedules for the 2017-2018 season. To be expected, that process has come with some surprising cancellations and some equally surprising renewals. (And both of those are relevant to the gone-and-back-again Timeless,) And yes, NBC's fall schedule will also have some big shockers going for it, and you can check them all out below.

While The Voice's cemented timeslots don't offer much change, except for its new talent, Monday nights will feature the big new drama The Brave, in which Anne Heche will lead a team of analysts working with special ops agents around the world to save innocent citizens from global troubles. The only other big new show you'll notice is hitting on Thursday nights, and it's the latest Dick Wolf-produced Law & Order spinoff, with this one latching onto the true crime phenomenon that has taken over, and you can bet NBC hopes it gets the same kind of attention that The People v. O.J. Simpson did.

As far as schedule shifts go, everyone will need their tissue shipments to come in on Thursday mornings now, instead of Tuesday mornings, with This Is Us jumping forward two days. Blacklist fans will need to make room on Wednesday nights now, since the twisty drama will bring Season 5 to lead off the highly popular Wednesday night lineup. (Menendez Murders is filling that Thursday night spot.) Those nostalgic for Must See TV's heyday will be pumped to see Will & Grace's revival back in the Thursday lineup. Friday nights got a little more interesting, with Blindspot breaking out as a lead-in for the second season of the film-to-TV adaptation Taken.

Keep an eye out for exact dates for when all your favorite NBC shows will be debuting, and head to our summer TV schedule to see when all your other favorite shows will take over primetime in the coming months.

Nick is a Cajun Country native, and is often asked why he doesn't sound like that's the case. His love for his wife and daughters is almost equaled by his love of gasp-for-breath laughter and gasp-for-breath horror. A lifetime spent in the vicinity of a television screen led to his current dream job, as well as his knowledge of too many TV themes and ad jingles.
