ABC Renews Dancing With the Stars, The Bachelor for 2020-2021

DANCING WITH THE STARS - "Dance-Off Week" - Seven celebrity and pro-dancer couples return to the ballroom to compete on the eighth week of the 2019 season of "Dancing with the Stars," live, MONDAY, NOV. 4 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.

ABC announced its 2020-2021 programming slate, which includes renewals for 19 series and two straight-to-series orders from its current crop of pilots.

Returning series include: The Bachelor (Season 25), Dancing with the Stars (Season 25), American Idol (Season 19), Blackish (Season 7), The Conners (Season 3), The Goldbergs (Season 8), A Million Little Things (Season 3), Mixed-Ish (Season 2), The Rookie (Season 3), Shark Tank (Season 12), Stumptown (Season 2), 20/20 (Season 43), Who Wants to Be A Millionaire (Season 2),

The network renewed Dancing with the Stars. But with The Bachelorette maybe airing Mondays in the fall, which is DWTS typical time slot, I wonder how ABC plans to juggle the schedule. The Bachelor, a winner for ABC season after season, is of course coming back to the schedule. ABC announced the American Idol renewal last week.

New Series: Big Sky (David E Kelley thriller), Call Your Mother (multi-camera comedy starring Kyra Sedgwick),

Cancelled Series: ABC confirmed Single Parents, Schooled, Emergence, Bless This Mess and the Tiffany Haddish-led reboot of Kids Say the Darndest Things are done. ABC will determine the fates of dramas For Life and The Baker and the Beauty at a later date.
