UPDATE: Shortly after publishing, Fox made a change to its fall line-up, which has been noted below.


When one TV season ends, another begins, bringing with it a new schedule to obsess over.

The networks have spent the past week unveiling their line-ups for the 2016 fall TV season, which included some buzzy new series that we can hardly wait for (looking at you, Designated Survivor) as well as some major changes for returning shows. Some shows are moving to new nights (see you on Fridays, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), while some are moving to entirely new networks. (OK, so this really only applies Supergirl's move from CBS to the CW.) And some shows are notably missing from the fall altogether. The struggle while we wait until midseason for Scandal will be real.

Break out your calendar and prepare to plan your life away. Here's the complete fall 2016 network TV schedule:
