TV Premieres & Schedule for December 2019

TV Premieres & Schedule

Google - Labeled for Reuse TV premieres and schedule: what series are premiering this month?

December is right around the corner, and with it comes dozens of holiday TV specials, Christmas classics, and returning winter favorites. Shows like The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Vikings and Marvel’s Runaways are all returning this month, while the highly-anticipated Netflix series The Witcher premieres on December 20. Reality television favorites like Project Runway, Growing Up Hip Hop and Black Ink Crew: Chicago all return as well, alongside dozens of miscellaneous holiday specials.

The following is a list of all December, 2019 TV premiere dates for most major shows on most major networks and streaming platforms. I will continue to update this article throughout the month as more shows are announced, but if I missed anything or the premiere time changes, feel free to shoot me an email and I will happily update the post. All times are listed in Eastern and Central time.

Note: the list below only consists of new series premieres, docu-series air dates, and continuing season premieres, and does NOT include made-for-TV original movies, stand-alone documentaries, stand-up comedies, series specials or awards ceremonies airing throughout the month. We focus strictly on TV series. Although we don’t normally add holiday specials to the list, we decided to make an exception with Christmas and New Year’s Eve right around the corner, so you can add a little extra holiday fun to your normal TV schedule! We hope you enjoy.
