The fall TV season is still months away from popping up in front of our eyes, but the networks are laying everything out in full to get audiences pumped for what new and returning shows are on the way. Fox released its full schedule this morning, and while the specific debut dates aren't up, the nightly line-ups are quite interesting on their own, considering the big changes that will go into effect after all those cancellations. You can check out the whole shebang below, followed by some more info about what we can expect to see in the midseason.
8:00-9:00 p.m. - Lucifer
8:00-9:00 p.m. - Lethal Weapon
8:00-9:00 p.m. - Empire
8:00-9:00 p.m. - Gotham
8:00-9:00 p.m. - Hell's Kitchen
7:00-10:30 p.m. - Fox Sports Saturday: Fox College Football
7:00-7:30 p.m. - NFL on Fox
Quite a line-up, right? Fox has three huge new shows coming to the Fall 2017 season, and it all starts with the highly anticipated Marvel drama The Gifted, which released its mutant-friendly first trailer last night. (Watch it now!) That new series will take slide into Monday nights, while the network's other comic-inspired show, Gotham, will make the surprising leap to Thursday nights for Season 4, where it can team up with Seth Macfarlane's upcoming sci-fi project The Orville. Finally, Sunday nights are getting another dose of live-action wackiness with the comedy Ghosted, which stars Adam Scott and Craig Robinson as two friends trying to get to the bottom of L.A.'s unexplained phenomena.
Not a lot of big changes beyond the new shows entering the schedule, although Wednesday nights are looking a little more properly planned for audience's tastes. Empire and Star are now back-to-back, so there's no excuses for anyone to go to sleep on Wednesdays without dreaming of all manner of cautionary tales concerning entering the music industry. And Lethal Weapon is moving to Tuesdays, because nothing sets people up for laughter better than laughter + explosions.
Thankfully, Fox did offer up some insight about what its midseason schedule will offer viewers when 2018 gets here. That's when audiences can expect to see the return of The X-Files for Season 11, as well as the medical drama The Resident, co-starring The Good Wife's Matt Czuchry. Another recently announced project that will no doubt win over audiences in early 2018 is Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk's upcoming drama about 911 operators, which already has Angela Bassett tapped as the star. And the last new show of the midseason will be a comedy from Will Ferrell and Modern Family co-creator Steve Levitan (among others) called L.A. to Vegas, which follows the eccentric crew and passengers on an airline that makes the same southwestern trip every weekend.
