Want to know what’s new on ABC this Fall? Then look no further.

Hot from our attendance at ABC’s Upfront presentation this week, we’ve got first look trailers to share on all six new dramas premiering over the 2015-2016 period, including FBI thriller Quantico, Shonda Rimes’ smart and sexy The Catch and the Game of Thrones-esque Of Kings and Prophets.

Diversity and “muscular storytelling” were buzz words from ABC president Paul Lee this week. We can certainly see hints of that reflected in these new offerings below.
