FOX has a busy 2018-2019 year set up for viewers!
FOX Television Network announced their fall upfronts and schedule earlier today with new shows, old favorites and some interesting special programming coming for the 2018-2019 year.
9-1-1 returns from a smashing debut season to lead the path for FOX this fall, while the final season of Gotham finds its way to viewers in Spring 2019.
Thursday night football comes to FOX this fall with hall-of-famers Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Michael Strahan headlining the pregame show.
Tim Allen's Last Man Standing is being revived from its cancellation on ABC in 2017. ABC grabbed FOX's Brooklyn Nine-Nine this past weekend and will keep that show going.
Joining Last Man Standing are new comedies The Cool Kids, starring comedy veterans David Alan Grier, Martin Mull, Leslie Jordan and Vicki Lawrence about about a rag-tag group of friends living in a retirement community who are willing to break every rule in order to have fun and Rel, which is inspired by the life of Lil Rel Howery (Get Out, Insecure, The Carmichael Show), Howery as a loving husband and father living in Chicago, who finds out his wife is having an affair, and must rebuild his life as a single father, following his divorce.
Coming midseason will be two new shows The Passage, based on best-selling trilogy of the same name by author Justin Cronin’s produced by Ridley Scott and Proven Innocent from Empire co-creator Danny Strong which brings Mark-Paul Gosselaar back to TV and is about "Project Noah," a secret medical facility where scientists are experimenting with a dangerous virus that could lead to the cure for all disease.
Special anniversaries this year include The Simpson's 30th anniversary, Family Guy's 20th anniversary and Bob's Burgers 150th episode!
In January, a re-imagined live musical production of the Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning musical RENT is scheduled with executive producer Marc Platt who did Grease: Live.
Last, but not least, COSMOS returns for its third seasons this spring, airing as a global event on both FOX and National Geographic in 180 countries and 43 languages.
