LOS ANGELES -- ABC is bringing back the lion's share of its series for next season, including 'black-ish,' 'A Million Little Things' and 'The Rookie.'

They are among the 19 shows that will return in the 2020-21 season, the network said Thursday, adding to a list of previously announced renewals.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                       
 

New series debuting next season include 'Big Sky,' a thriller from writer-producer David E. Kelley ('Big Little Lies,' 'Boston Legal'), the comedy 'Call Your Mother' and game show revival 'Supermarket Sweep' with host Leslie Jones ("Saturday Night Live").

As with other networks facing the uncertainty of an industrywide, coronavirus-caused production halt, ABC is releasing its plans later than usual and piecemeal. Its schedule has yet to be announced.

Among the ABC series that won't be back: sitcoms 'Bless This Mess,' 'Schooled' and 'Single Parents,' the drama 'Emergence,' and 'Kids Say the Darndest Things,' a reality show hosted by Tiffany Haddish.

Decisions on 'The Beauty and the Baker' and 'For Life' have yet to be announced.

More returning shows are: 'American Housewife'; 'The Bachelor'; 'The Conners'; 'Dancing with the Stars'; 'The Goldbergs'; 'mixed-ish'; 'Shark Tank'; 'Stumptown'; '20/20'; 'Who Wants To Be A Millionaire'; 'America's Funniest Home Videos'; 'American Idol'; 'The Bachelorette'; 'The Good Doctor'; 'Grey's Anatomy'; 'Station 19.'
