“We’ve stacked the hit new-to-Citytv Chicago franchise on Wednesday...”, which Global previously broadcast in Canada.

Fridays
Starting the weekend with hearts and flowers, Citytv presents Fall in Love Fridays at 8 p.m., a weekly movie block featuring rom-coms and feel-good flicks.

Canines, Corpses, and a Cosmic Queen… This is Canadian TV Citytv Celebrates Canadian Storytelling with New 2019/20 Original Programming Slate

The new original Canadian programming slate includes scripted series Hudson & Rex (Season 2), Dead Still, and Vagrant Queen. And with six new Canadian shows in development for Citytv, there are even more original stories to come for TV lovers.

Citytv again collaborates with Toronto-based Shaftesbury on the new series Dead Still, an Ireland/Canada treaty co-production, with RTE as the Irish broadcaster and Acorn TV in the U.S. And a fierce new heroine also joins Citytv as live-action sci-fi drama series Vagrant Queen brings the graphic novel story to a whole new audience in a Canada/South Africa treaty co-production by Toronto’s Blue Ice Pictures, also broadcast on Syfy in the U.S. Both series join the Citytv schedule in 2020.

Citytv’s original content offering also includes popular schedule staples Cityline, Breakfast Television, and CityNews.

Broadcast dates/times to be announced in the coming months

The Orville will move from FOX to Hulu in the U.S. for its upcoming third season in late 2020. Seth MacFarlane was not able to deliver episodes to meet Fox's mid-season schedule.

Citytv will probably retain the Canadian rights, although the series won't be available until late 2020. "As far as I know, Canada, the UK, and other international platforms will remain unchanged, but I’m checking with my bosses on that, as I don’t yet know for sure (yes, I have bosses). Stay tuned for more info!" (https://twitter.com/SethMacFarlane/status/1152768696445624321)

By 'late 2020' it means late in the season, not late in the year, does it not? Meaning that it is around March - April, instead of November - December, 2020, is it not?

@hercules130 Here's the official Hulu Press Release. I took it to mean late in calendar year 2020, probably too late for the fall 2020 season. Broadcast networks typically don't like to start a season during the holiday shopping/party season when people have a lot of other things on their minds. so I wouldn't be surprised to see Citytv hold the season until January 2021.

Yikes, I thought the show was slated for mid season 2019-20 (around January) and got postponed to later in the season. With this, McFarlane is even unable to deliver for 2020-21 premier, meaning that he forfeits more than a season.
