After 29 years The Simpsons is coming to Citytv.
The Simpsons, which became the longest-running prime-time scripted series on TV in April, will return to its coveted Sunday, 8 p.m., time slot and kick off a night of laughs with Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy, Rel (a new scripted comedy coming to Citytv this year starring Devin Trey Campbell and Sinbad) and two episodes of Mom.
Reboots of two classic television shows are also coming to Citytv this fall. She was a ground-breaking, iconic pillar of feminism in the ’90s and now Candice Bergen is bringing Murphy Brown and the original FYI news team back to television. The highly topical, politically driven, multi Emmy Award winning comedy series will air on Thursdays at 9:30 p.m.
After taking home the Oscar for best director this year, Jordan Peele is bringing the terror to the small screen with a reboot of The Twilight Zone. The seminal sci-fi anthology series took viewers to another dimension when it premiered in 1959 with host Rod Serling. The show ran for five seasons but its format continues to inspire film and television to this day. There has been no word on who will host The Twilight Zone reboot but is scheduled to air mid-season.
Proving comedy doesn’t end at 40, David Alan Grier (In Living Color), Leslie Jordan (American Horror Story), Vicki Lawrence (The Carol Burnett Show), and Martin Mull (Veep) are bringing the laughs to a retirement community in the new comedy The Cool Kids. The show will focus on a rag-tag group of friends who are willing to break every rule to have fun because they may be old but they’re not done living yet. The Cool Kids will air on Wednesdays at 8:30 p.m.
As well, many of the staples you’ve come to love are returning to Citytv this year including America’s Got Talent, The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, Black-ish, Dancing with the Stars, Hell’s Kitchen, Hockey Night in Canada, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine.
