ABC has officially revealed its TV schedule for fall 2016 and it includes a couple of major changes, reported Entertainment Weekly.

First up, you will notice that "Scandal" is not on the list of fall premieres on ABC. Don't worry, the show has been renewed and will return but it will likely arrive during the mid-season, which means sometime in early 2017. The reason for the delay is said to be due to Kerry Washington's pregnancy. In its place is the new Shondaland series "Notorious" starring Piper Perabo, according to Hypable.

Furthermore, "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." has been moved from the 9 p.m. slot to 10 p.m. on Tuesdays. The benefits of this move are so the show can go a little darker and take some risks.
