TORONTO, July 23, 2015 /CNW/ - Heading into another can't-miss season of appointment television, CTV confirmed today its fall premiere dates for CTV and CTV Two. After a hit 2014/2015 season, which saw six of the Top 6 new series on CTV, four new, powerful dramas arrive in primetime to continue to strengthen CTV's #1 schedule. The big-buzz series coming to CTV this fall: action-packed mystery-thriller BLINDSPOT, airing Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Sept. 21; explosive strike-it-rich family drama BLOOD & OIL and the not-to-be-missed time-shifting conspiracy drama QUANTICO, airing Sundays at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT respectively beginning Sept. 27; and adrenaline-driven hospital drama CODE BLACK, airing Wednesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning Sept. 30.
As hot new series get ready to enter the schedule, fall also sees the return of last season's top new series. It's no joke that GOTHAM will see the addition of some new villains when it returns Mondays at 8 p.m. ET/PT, beginning Sept. 21, and it's back to class with HOW TO GET AWAY WITH MURDER, airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning Sept. 24. On Tuesday, Oct. 6 Canada's #1 new series of 2014/2015, THE FLASH returns at 8 p.m. ET/PT, followed by CSI: CYBER at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
September also ushers in a steady stream of returning fan favourite and Top 20 hits including THE BIG BANG THEORY and CASTLE (Sept. 21), GREY'S ANATOMY (Sept. 24), ONCE UPON A TIME (Sept. 27), MARVEL'S AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. (Sept. 29), CRIMINAL MINDS (Sept. 30), and ARROW (Oct. 7). Following an emotional and unforgettable Season 3 finale, CTV's hit original drama SAVING HOPE returns for Season 4 following GREY'S ANATOMY, Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Sept. 24.
New series also add to the strength of the CTV Two fall lineup, with the live, anything-can-happen variety series BEST TIME EVER WITH NEIL PATRICK HARRIS. The series is set to premiere on CTV Tuesday, Sept. 15 at 10 p.m. ET/PT, and will later move to CTV Two to anchor its Tuesday night lineup. Also joining CTV Two is Season 3 of mystery-thriller SLEEPY HOLLOW, airing Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT beginning Oct. 1.
