NBC has announced premiere dates for its 2017-18 fall schedule, which includes last season's #1 new series, "This Is Us"; the return of one of the most honored and beloved comedies of all time, "Will & Grace"; the Edie Falco-starrer "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders"; and new Monday night drama "The Brave."

NBC begins its new season Monday, September 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT with a two-hour telecast of the Blind Auditions for season 13 of "The Voice," which features new coach Jennifer Hudson, as well as the return of coaches Miley Cyrus, Blake Shelton and Adam Levine. "The Voice" will immediately be followed by the premiere of "The Brave," a heart-pounding journey into the complex world of America's elite undercover military heroes, starring Anne Heche as a Washington, D.C.-based D.I.A. Deputy Director and Mike Vogel as captain of an elite overseas Special Ops squad.

The cultural sensation and #1 new series "This Is Us" makes its highly anticipated return on Tuesday, September 26 at 9 p.m., immediately following "The Voice." At 10 p.m. is the premiere of "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders," which stars four-time Emmy Award winner Edie Falco as tenacious attorney Leslie Abramson, who defends brothers Lyle and Erik Menendez in the sensational trial that follows their arrest for the brutal murders of their parents.

A week later (Oct. 4) in the 8 p.m. timeslot, NBC's signature drama "The Blacklist," starring three-time Emmy winner James Spader, begins its fifth season.

Following a season finale in which a tornado ripped apart Cloud 9, the folks from "Superstore" begin to rebuild starting at 8 p.m. Thursday, September 28. Ending its first season with a twist that stunned critics and viewers alike, Mike Schur's "The Good Place" begins season two at 8:30 p.m.
