Spring 2021 Premiere Dates For New & Returning Series On Broadcast, Cable & Streaming

For TV, this typically is the lull period between the slew of winter program launches and the summer rush of originals. But spring is busier than ever this year as more and more series that restarted production in the fall after the Covid shutdown are ready to debut their new seasons.

That said, here is Deadline’s annual list of spring premiere dates for new and returning series. It covers more than 150 broadcast, cable and streaming programs debuting from April 1 through June 15. The list includes a few one-off specials, such as awards shows, but not movies.
