The This Is Us final season, Kenan, and the Law and Order revival are all part of the NBC midseason 2022 schedule. Let’s take a look at what we can expect.

We start with the Law & Order revival. The new series is going to air on Thursdays, giving us a full night of Law & Order. However, it does mean a night change for The Blacklist. The Blacklist is moving to Fridays, where it was supposed to be throughout fall 2021. Fans will remember that Law & Order: For the Defense was going to air on Thursdays to kick off Law & Order Thursdays, but the show was canceled.

NBC is heading back to the plan to bring a full night of Law & Order shows. It won’t start until after the Winter Olympics, so we’re waiting until Thursday, Feb. 24. The Blacklist will keep the timeslot in January when it returns from winter break on Thursday, Jan. 6.

The final season of This Is Us is also on the midseason schedule. That is getting a January timeslot, although there will be a break for the Olympic Games. Once the Games are done, there won’t be any other breaks in the schedule. Watch the show starting Tuesday, Jan. 4 at 9/8c. La Brea is airing its season finale in December, keeping things contained with a shorter season order.

After a fall with no comedies, NBC is going back to a comedy block in the midseason. It all starts with two episodes of Kenan back to back on Mondays. This is an usual night for comedies on the network, clearly trying to compete against CBS’s comedy night.

There is an even more unusual comedy block. Starting Tuesday, Jan. 4, there will be an hour comedy block to start the night with freshman comedies American Auto and Grand Crew. Other comedies will follow in subsequent months.
