Fall TV Guide: What to watch amid Hollywood strikes

WTOP's Jason Fraley previews fall TV season amid strikes (Part 1)

This time of year is typically when television networks roll out their fall TV lineups.

However, the Hollywood writers’ and actors’ strikes are causing content to dry up.

Network TV hits like “Abbott Elementary,” “Ghosts,” “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Saturday Night Live” will not be returning this fall. Also sidelined are cable hits like “Billions,” “Euphoria,” “The Last of Us,” “P-Valley” and “Yellowjackets,” as well as streamers like “1923,” “The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Severance” and “Stranger Things.”

So what can viewers watch in the meantime? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered:
