ABC announced its full TV lineup for the 2016-2017 season on Tuesday.
While several shows were surprisingly absent from the line-up, especially the hit series Scandal (likely pushed back to accommodate Kerry Washington's pregnancy). Also cancelled is Marvel's Agent Carter and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been pushed back to a later time slot.
On the bright side, though, ABC unveiled several shiny new trailers for their new line-up, including Hayley Atwell's new series Conviction.
Check out each of the new trailers on the following slides!
