ABC is bringing “A Million Little Things” back in 2019, and this time, on a new night.

Today, the network has officially unveiled its winter 2019 schedule, including the premiere dates for several returning shows and four rookie titles.

Notably, the network is moving “A Million Little Things” from its usual Wednesday night 10 p.m. time slot to Thursdays at 9 p.m. when it returns next year. Starting Jan. 17, the freshman drama will start airing in between “Grey’s Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder,” as “Station 19” goes on an extended hiatus to accommodate the move.

“Match Game” will fill the Wednesday night spot left by “A Million Little Things” starting Jan. 9, and will air the same night as the series premiere of ABC’s 1990s-set “Goldbergs” spin-off, “Schooled.” The spin-off series will air back-to-back with “The Goldbergs” Wednesday nights, as “American Housewife” moves from the time slot to the Tuesday nights at 8 p.m., starting February 5.

Additionally, the network has announced the premiere dates for three of its other upcoming rookie titles, starting with spy dramedy, “Whiskey Cavalier,” which will make its debut Wednesday, Feb. 27 at 10 p.m. The network’s new legal thriller, “The Fix,” will also premiere Monday, March 18, after “The Good Doctor” finishes its second season. Meanwhile, “Grand Hotel” is expected to premiere later in the new year, on Monday, June 17.

“Station 19” will return in its usual hour Thursday, March 7, with “For the People” making its season 2 premiere immediately after it, in “How to Get Away with Murder’s” 10 p.m. time slot. ABC will also be bringing back “American Idol,” which will premiere its latest season Sunday, March 3 at 8 p.m.
