Here's When The Gifted, The Orville and Other Fox Shows Premiere

Which show is getting a head start on the rest?

Tim Surette

You've barely put half a tube of zinc oxide on your nose and put the hot doggies on the grill, but all you can think about is, "When does The Gifted premiere?" Well Fox has your back.

The network announced its fall premiere dates today, and it's giving the biggest push for Seth MacFarlane's new space comedy The Orville. The series will get a head start on the rest of fall television with a post-football boost on consecutive Sundays starting Sept. 10. It will move to its regular timeslot of Thursdays at 9/8c on Sept. 28 after the fourth season premiere of Gotham.

Like other networks, Fox really dives into the new season the week of Sept. 25, with Lethal Weapon, The Mick and Brooklyn Nine-Nine officially starting Fox's season on Tuesday, Sept. 26. Empire and Star follow the next day, and Hell's Kitchen and The Exorcist continue their oddly thematic pairing on Friday, Sept. 29.

Ghost-hunting comedy Ghosted, starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott, makes its debut Sunday, Oct. 1 at 8:30/7:30c. The Gifted, the new Marvel series about children with superpowers (also note: it's just called The Gifted now, not Marvel's Gifted), takes over Gotham's place on Monday nights and debuts Oct. 2 at 9/8c, immediately following the Season 3 premiere of Lucifer.
