2017/2018 TV Series Breakdown: FOX

The Fall TV Season presentations for all the new network shows take place this week with the second announced today. Here’s a full breakdown of which concepts have made the final list over on FOX.

FOX is making minimal additions to its Fall line-up with only a handful of new shows – four dramas and two comedies – half of which are being held to mid-season. The biggest change to the schedule is “Gotham” which is moving from Monday to Thursday nights.

That said the new series are pretty high profile including the “X-Men” spin-off “The Gifted,” Seth MacFarlane’s “Galaxy Quest”-esque sci-fi comedy “The Orville,” the Craig Robinson and Adam Scott led ghost hunting buddy comedy “Ghosted,” and the Angela Bassett led emergency responders drama “9-1-1”. There’s also the return of “The X-Files” mid-season with ten more episodes. Here’s a full list of what’s coming.
