Global is pulling back the curtain on its vibrant and diverse 2019-2020 lineup of extraordinary television. Featuring 12 new series for the broadcast year, including eight new primetime series, one new daytime talk show, one new late-night series, and a landmark comedy taking its final bow on Global, the network offers Canadians a full-service platform for the hottest shows on TV in every genre, anytime they want it.
