This week is Upfronts week in New York. On Monday, NBC revealed its battle horses for the 2018/2019 season. Up next, we round up all green-lights, renewals and cancellations. 

Having earned its place as the preferred channel amongst adults 18-49 in four of the last five years, NBC is preparing a 2018/2019 season that isn't straying away from what the network has been programming so far.

Up next, ttvnews rounds up everything revealed by the company during this Upfront, which took place this Monday (May 14) at the Radio City Music Hall in New York City.

What's New?

After an intense pilot season, these are the shows that have made the cut and received a full season order. Some will be released in fall (September-October) and others will have their moment to shine during the midseason.

  • Manifest

It's a Mystery thriller created by Robert Zemeckis and starring Josh Dallas (Once Upon a Time). NBC is calling it "the new Lost". Premiere: Fall 2018, probably on Mondays.

Goodwin struggles to prevent the bureaucracy from interfering with patient care and is determined to restore his old hospital.

  • I Feel Bad

It's a comedy series based on the book I Feel Bad: All Day. Every Day. About Everything, by Orli Auslander. It stars Sarayu Blue (No Tomorrow). Premiere: Fall 2018 on Thursdays.



Emet is a mother, a boss, a wife, a friend and an imperfect daughter. She feels bad when she has a sex dream about someone who is not her husband or when she uses her staff to help solve her personal problems. But that's fine, right? Nobody can have everything and do it perfectly.
