The return of "Will & Grace" and a dramatization of the Menendez murders are among the new series heading to Global this fall, while the Amazon hit "Transparent" is moving to Showcase and "Mozart In the Jungle" joins W Network, Corus announced Monday.

Five new dramas join Global this fall, including "S.W.A.T." with Shemar Moore; the military drama "SEAL Team" with David Boreanaz; and "Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders," featuring Edie Falco as defence attorney Leslie Abramson.

Also new are the undercover military series "The Brave" with Anne Heche and "Wisdom of the Crowd" with Jeremy Piven.

New fall comedies include the return of "Will & Grace," featuring the reunion of Eric McCormack and Debra Messing; "9JKL" with Linda Lavin and Elliott Gould; and the newsroom comedy "Great News" with Andrea Martin and Nicole Richie.

Global's mid-season will include the drama "Instinct" starring Alan Cumming, and the Judd Hirsch comedy "Superior Donuts," which begins on CMT Canada this fall before season 2 joins Global in 2018.

Meanwhile, the fourth season of "Transparent" is bound for Showcase, but no date has been set. A Corus spokeswoman says Showcase has also acquired the first three seasons of the Amazon streaming hit, but there was no word on broadcast dates.

Also new to Showcase this fall will be the Jessica Biel drama "The Sinner," and the murder mystery "Absentia" starring Canadian actress Stana Katic, while Marvel's teen series "Runaways" joins in 2018.

The fall slate on History includes "Knightfall," which chronicles true accounts of the Knights Templar, and season 5 of "Vikings," with Jonathan Rhys Meyers starring as warrior bishop Heahmund.

Coming soon to W Network is the fourth season of Amazon's streaming show "Mozart in the Jungle," while the second instalment of "The Bachelor Canada" debuts this fall. "Outlander" joins the network after previously airing on Showcase and the new serialized army pilot drama "Valor" joins the lineup.

In 2018, ABC Spark welcomes Marvel's "Cloak & Dagger," in which teenagers adjust to newly acquired superpowers; and the "Black-ish" spinoff "College-ish," which follows the Johnsons' eldest daughter as she heads off to college.

Canadian actor Jason Priestley says a growing number of TV shows aren’t hiding the fact they are shot in Toronto because it has become a 'world-class city.' Priestley’s Toronto-set “Private Eyes” is back on Global for Season 2.
