The networks have started announcing their primetime lineups for the 2024-2025 season. It is a time to say farewell to favorites and look ahead to programming that could be worthy replacements.

NBC will launch three shows in the fall – one drama and two comedies. These programs will replace the canceled “Extended Family,” “La Brea,” “Hot Wheels: Ultimate Challenge,” “Quantum Leap,” “Magnum PI” and “LA Fire & Rescue.” The series “Law & Order: Organized Crime” will move to the streaming service Peacock.

“Brilliant Minds,”set to air at 10 p.m. Mondays, stars Zachary Quinto as revolutionary, larger-than-life neurologist Oliver Wolf. He and his team of interns explore the last great frontier — the human mind — while also grappling with their own relationships and mental health.

The comedy “St. Denis Medical,”on the schedule for 8 p.m. Tuesdays, features Wendi McLendon-Covey, Allison Tolman and David Alan Grier. It is a mockumentary about an underfunded, understaffed Oregon hospital where the dedicated doctors and nurses try their best to treat patients while maintaining their own sanity.

The last new NBC series, “Happy’s Place,” airing at 8 p.m. Fridays, marks the return of Reba McEntire to the multi-camera format. Her character inherits her father’s bar and is less than thrilled to discover that she has a new business partner in the half-sister she never knew she had.

Should those new shows or any of the returning shows falter, NBC has several series waiting in the wings. The reality competition series “Destination X” combines an adventure with immersive gameplay and the ultimate guessing game. There is also the procedural drama “The Hunting Party”starring Melissa Roxburgh (“Manifest”),which will see a team of investigators attempt to capture the country’s most dangerous killers. “Deal or No Deal Island” will return a new set of contestants to the Banker’s private island for season two.

Also set for the new season is the 10-part event series “The Americas” set to launch Feb. 23 with a special two-hour premiere. Narrated by actor, producer, and writer Tom Hanks, the natural history series is five years in the making and filled with extraordinary new discoveries.

New programs coming to CBS

The success of “Tracker” and “Elsbeth” made it easier for CBS to replace programming that won’t be around for the 2024-2025 season. The casts and crews of “Young Sheldon” and “Bob (Hearts) Abishola” knew that their runs would end this year. That was not the case with “So Help Me Todd,” “NCIS: Hawai’i” and “CSI: Vegas.”

New programming for CBS includes three new dramas, two new comedies, a new alternative series and a reimagined classic game show. The two dramas of “NCIS: Origins” and “Matlock” will join 18 returning series in the fall.

“NCIS: Origins” stars Austin Stowell as a young Leroy Jethro Gibbs and narrated by “NCIS” series star Mark Harmon. It will tell the story of Gibbs before he put together his “NCIS” team. Kathy Bates stars in “Matlock,” a reimagining of the classic television series.

New comedies include “Poppa’s House” starring Damon Wayans as happily divorced “Poppa” who finds himself still parenting his adult son, Damon Wayans Jr. The “Young Sheldon” spinoff “Georgie & Mandy’s First Marriage” follows Georgie (Montana Jordan) and Mandy (Emily Osment) as they raise their young family in Texas while navigating the challenges of adulthood, parenting and marriage.

Also new is “The Summit” hosted by Manu Bennet which follows 16 strangers embarking on a journey through the New Zealand Alps in an attempt to reach the peak of a distant, towering mountain and win $1 million.

Waiting in the wings is the drama “Watson” featuring Morris Chestnut as a modern version of one of history’s greatest detectives solving medical mysteries. Drew Barrymore will host a new version of “Hollywood Squares.”

The following is the new 2024-2025 schedule:

Monday: “The Neighborhood” 8 p.m., “Poppa’s Place” 8:30 p.m., “NCIS” 9 p.m., “NCIS: Origins” 10 p.m.
