While most regular people are just barely starting to think about their summer plans, May means big broadcasting announcements for television networks. Last night, ABC announced their fall lineup -- including 14 new shows, and the return of several fan favorites. 

Popular shows like "Revenge," “Dancing with the Stars,”  "Modern Family," "Nashville," “The Bachelor,” and  “Castle,”  are all slated to return, as well as  “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Last Man Standing,” “The Middle,” “The Neighbors,” “Once Upon a Time,” “Scandal,” “Shark Tank,” “Suburgatory,” “The Taste” and “20/20."

Despite early rumors that the ninth season would be the last for "Grey's Anatomy," it has also been renewed. "Private Practice," the medical drama's spin-off, however, has been canceled. 

Viewers can look forward to new programs like "Back in the Game,” “Betrayal,” “The Goldbergs,” “Killer Women,” which features Sofía Vergara as an executive producer, “Lucky 7,” “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Mind Games,” (which stars Christian Slater and Steve Zahn),  “Mixology,” “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland,” “Resurrection,” “Super Fun Night,” (starring Rebel Wilson as an attorney) and “Trophy Wife." A new alternative reality adventure series called "The Quest" is also being added to the lineup. 

According to the network, ABC has also picked up “Toy Story of Terror,” a Pixar special starring the original voice cast from the film.

"We are taking some big swings with groundbreaking shows this season, and staying close to our roots with smart and sophisticated storytelling," explains Paul Lee, President, ABC Entertainment Group.
