ABC midseason dates: 'Wonderland,' 'Betrayal,' 'Nashville' changes
ABC just released its midseason schedule and there’s some interesting changes for several current dramas.
We’re told Sunday night’s Betrayal will conclude its 13 episode order on Jan. 19 — so no more episodes after that (it’s a “limited series,” so only 13 hours were expected this season, though chances of a second order for next year are nil so …). Betrayal will be replaced by eight-part limited spy series The Assets. Then, in another shake-up, Revenge will eventually move into the 10 p.m. slot.
Thursday’s struggling Wonderland will have its winter finale on Dec. 12 and then will go on hiatus. Cooking competition show The Taste will return for its second season into the Wonderland slot starting Jan. 2. Unlike Betrayal, ABC says Wonderland will return with original episodes sometime in the spring, but hasn’t specified a date or a time slot.
There’s some good news for Nashville fans: The Wednesday country drama is no longer going to air as a split season as originally planned; instead of going on hiatus, Nashville will continue to run new episodes in January and February.
Also set to debut: Texas Rangers drama Killer Women starring Tricia Helfer, master manipulators drama Mind Games starring Christian Slater (surely that streak has gotta break sometime, right?), trapped-in-a-bar comedy Mixology and loved-ones-return drama Resurrection. Plus, Suburgatory is returning to Wednesdays, taking over the Back in the Game slot. Check out the dates below:
