Enterprise will be the first UPN show to return from summer hiatus this year.
UPN will air Enterprise's third-season premiere, "The Xindi", at 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, September 10, Zap2it reported. It will be followed at 9:00 p.m. by new lead-out show Jake 2.0, which replaces the short-lived Twilight Zone.
Despite earlier reports that UPN had decided to debut its new schedule in the week of September 22 (story), the network has chosen to roll out its fall line-up significantly earlier. September 22 (the day after the Primetime Emmys are presented) marks the official start of the fall season, and sister network CBS will be unveiling most of its series during that week.
In the lead-up to Enterprise's return on September 10, UPN plans to show several double-bills of season two episodes, according to Psi Phi. This will culminate on September 3 with a repeat of "The Expanse" just prior to the launch of season three the following week.
UPN will unveil most of its comedy-heavy line-up in the week following the return of Enterprise. One new sitcom, The Mullets, will debut at 9:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 11, after a 90-minute edition of WWE Smackdown!, before moving to its regular Tuesday 9:30 p.m. timeslot.
Monday, September 15, sees the return of The Parkers, Girlfriends and Half and Half, as well as the debut of the new series, Eve, starring the rapper of the same name. On September 16 One on One kicks off the new Tuesday-night line-up, followed by All of Us, Rock Me Baby and The Mullets.
