Magnum P has good news! NBC scraps its fall schedule due to two strikes and moves the six returning series to 2024 1

Table of Contents

    NBC‘s best laid fall plans are getting an extreme makeover amid the SAG-AFTRA and writers’ strikes.

    The network announced Wednesday that six returning series — Night Court, Chicago Med, Chicago Fire, Chicago P.D., Law & Order and Law & Order: SVU — have been pushed to midseason, joining previously announced early-2024 entries Law & Order: Organized Crime, Lopez vs. Lopez and La Brea. Similarly, the launch of NBC’s new Jon Cryer-led sitcom Extended Family has also been delayed.

    On the flip side, the second half of Magnum P.I.‘s fifth and final season — which was filmed long ago and was originally slated to bow at midseason — has been moved up to fall. The reboot’s farewell run will now air Wednesdays at 10 pm beginning Oct. 4, immediately following new (yes, new) episodes of former Tuesday occupant Quantum Leap (which got a jumpstart on Season 2 prior to the dual strikes).
