The biggest change involves Once Upon a Time, which is returning for season 7 without most of its cast, moving to Fridays at 8/7c. However, the network is clearly making a big push for Friday nights because it will be joined by the newest Marvel series, Inhumans.
Other big moves include Black-ish heading to Tuesday nights, Shark Tank moving to Sundays and the fact that Quantico and Agents of SHIELD are both being held until mid-season.
Also at mid-season, besides the big reboot of American Idol, ABC is offering two new spin-offs of its most popular reality franchises. The Bachelor Winter Games will be like Bachelor in Paradise, only the setting is a winter resort with winter-themed challenges.
ABC will also debut Dancing with the Stars Junior, a new competition that will pair child stars and the children of celebrities with junior ballroom champions. Both this and The Bachelor Winter Games will premiere in early 2018.
And ABC is entering the live musical game with The Little Mermaid in October. The network is also moving forward on yet another TV revival, this one for the classic sitcom Roseanne.
