And the shows just keep on coming.

Yes, the coronavirus pandemic forced a major production lockdown in Hollywood. But casts and crews are steadily getting back to work, and the fall TV season is just around the corner. That means plenty of fresh programming is coming our way.

Among the September highlights: “Dancing With the Stars” returns with a new host in Tyra Banks, a “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” prequel — “Ratched” — arrives on Netflix, and a fresh edition of “Fargo” debuts with Chris Rock in the starring role.

Also, the Academy of Country Music Awards (ACM) will be handed out to top country music stars, and television honors its high achievers at the Emmy Awards — virtually, of course.
