Posted on

Here’s exactly how long you’ll have to wait for the return of Once Upon a TimeScandalQuantico and many others after their winter breaks. 

ABC just announced winter and spring premiere dates, which include the return plans for midseason musical comedy Galavant, the acclaimed drama American Crime, and action drama Marvel’s Agent Carter.

Also in the mix are premiere dates for some new series, including biblical saga Of Kings & Prophets, Dan Savage’s sitcom The Real McNeals, and Shonda Rhimes’ latest The Catch.

Some notes: Fresh Off the Boat will move to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays after The Muppets finishes its short-season run. Of Kings & Prophets is getting ABC’s historically brutal Tuesdays at 10 p.m. slot. The return of Secrets and Lies, as well as planned midseason freshman comedy Uncle Buck, are absent from the list.
