It's a new era at Fox, which is preparing to kick off its first official TV season as "New Fox." Disney acquired the network's accompanying studio this spring, so the upcoming fall TV season will be a chance for "New Fox" to make a statement about what the network's new identity will be.
In the midst of these changes, a few things are still certain: The Simpsons will continue to hold court heading into its 31st season. Breakout hit The Masked Singer will be back for a second and third round — and it's getting the coveted post-Super Bowl slot. Medical drama The Resident has secured a Season 3, while Empire was renewed for a sixth and final season, though there are currently no plans for Jussie Smollett to return to the drama. Meanwhile, 9-1-1 will keep Fox in business with Ryan Murphy for at least another season as he continues developing future projects for Netflix, The Orville will blast off for a third season and continue Seth MacFarlane's relationship with Fox, and Last Man Standing will stay up for another season as well.
Unfortunately, some freshman series didn't make the cut for Season 2, including The Passage, The Cool Kids, and Rel. Elsewhere, Star was canceled after a crazy Season 3 cliffhanger, and Lethal Weapon was put out of its misery after non-stop behind-the-scenes drama.
Head here to check out Fox's fall 2019 schedule and find out which hits are being held for midseason.
NEW SHOW TRAILERS
