Friday October 16 is the two-hour season premiere of ABC’s hit series “20/20” with a special report on music icon John Lennon 40 years after his death

The season 43 premiere edition of “20/20” reporting on the life, legacy and last days of John Lennon, airs October 16 at 9PM ET on ABC.

You can watch previous episodes at ABC.com and on the ABC app.

On Dec. 8, 1980, the world stood still as it learned about the death of John Lennon, a music icon and former member of The Beatles. Now, nearly 40 years after that infamous day and days after what would have been his 80th birthday, the season premiere of “20/20” tells the story of Lennon’s life, final days and lasting legacy through the eyes of close friends and colleagues, and rarely seen footage from the ABC News archives.

The program includes new interviews with Bob Gruen, legendary rock ‘n’ roll photographer who took the iconic photo of Lennon in his “New York City” T-shirt; Jack Douglas, producer of Lennon and Yoko Ono’s “Double Fantasy” album; and Elliot Mintz, close friend and Hollywood publicist. 

The two-hour program also includes the last interview Lennon did the day he died and interviews with the radio reporters who conducted it.

“20/20” is anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach. David Sloan is senior executive producer. Janice Johnston is senior producer, and Alison Lynn, Jennifer Pirone and Tami Sheheri are producers of this episode.
