ABC has announced their schedule for the Fall 2016 season, and it includes a couple major changes.

Let’s start with the biggest news: The Kerry Washington-led Scandal season 6 won’t be airing this fall. While ABC hasn’t announced when exactly it’ll premiere, it’s expected to run during the mid-season, meaning early 2017. The reason for the delay is likely Kerry Washington’s real-life pregnancy. In its 9 p.m. time slot will be the new ABC / Shondaland series Notorious.

In equally interesting news, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will be moving from 9 to 10 p.m. on Tuesday nights. ABC promises that staying up later to watch the show will give viewers a couple good benefits:

Returning series The Middle is moving to Tuesdays, and Fresh Off the Boat and The Real O’Neals are moving to a new time on Tuesdays. The Goldbergs also has a new time on Wednesdays, but other than that ABC’s schedule remains the same as it was.
