NBC has locked in its lineup for the second half of the season, which will feature seven new shows, the returning “Shades of Blue” on a different night and an unusual scheduling move for a couple of its new comedies.

“Chicago Justice,” the fourth entry in the network’s Windy City franchise, will air on Sundays starting in March, where it will be bookended by returnees “Little Big Shots” and “Shades of Blue,” which is moving from Thursday nights. “Powerless,” a workplace comedy set in the DC Comics universe, will pair with “Superstore” starting in February, after “The Good Place” ends its season.

“The Blacklist: Redemption” will run in its parent show’s Thursday spot for eight weeks starting in late February, and comedies “Trial & Error” and “Great News” will each air behind the Tuesday edition of “The Voice.” Rather than pairing them, however, each show will run its full season in hour-long blocks — “Trial & Error” beginning in March and “Great News” in April.

NBC is still holding onto a pair of new shows, comedy “Marlon” and drama “Midnight, Texas,” as well as returning comedy “The Carmichael Show.” They could be held for summer or subbed in if something else goes poorly; the network has no comment on their potential scheduling.

The network had previously announced dates for new dramas “Taken” and “Emerald City,” “The New Celebrity Apprentice,” the finals season of “Grimm” and the spring run of “The Voice.” Those dates are below along with the rest of the winter and spring lineup.
