FOX has ordered a ten-episode X-Files event series to air during the 2017-18 seasons (not a surprise after 2016’s series’ ratings) – helmed by creator Chris Carter and bringing back David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as now iconic FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully.
Production is set to begin this summer.
Maybe this time we can get an arc that doesn’t take a lovely series of episodes and wrap them up with a pitiful finale (like last time – I can hope, right?).
With the end in sight – only three episodes remaining – the cast of Bones (FOX’ Tuesdays, 9/8C) has released a twenty minute video reminiscing about their time on the show, and thanking fans for their perseverance in following them from timeslot to timeslot over the show’s 12-year run.
One of the most delightful surprises of the 2016-17 season has been the development of the TV adaptation of Lethal Weapon. Clayne Crawford’s Riggs and Damon Wayans’ Murtaugh have captured the spirit of their big screen counterparts and the show’s writing has given them a solid platform to work from.
That’s paid off in solid ratings and a second season for the rookie cop show – as FOX announced its renewal today.
Plus, there’s a new episode tonight (blurb follows…).
FOX has renewed Kaitlin Olson vehicle, The Mick (FOX, Tuesdays, 8:30/7:30C).
The Mick is a comedy about an unapologetic degenerate (Kaitlin Olson) who suddenly finds herself stuck raising her spoiled niece (Sofia Black-D’Elia, “The Night Of”) and nephews (Thomas Barbusca, “Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life”; newcomer Jack Stanton) in affluent Greenwich, CT.
Placing Neil Gaiman’s former Prince of Hell in a Los Angeles-set procedural has proven to be a winning formula. Lucifer has been renewed by FOX for a third season.
Currently just finished its Fall run, Lucifer fans are the getting the good news with the May 1st Spring Premiere just over two-and-a-half months away – with the egocentric (but slowly growing up) fallen angel/Prince of Hell having gone off the grid following his partner, Detective Chloe Decker’s brush with death.
FOX has ordered a 14th season of So You Think You Dance – and like last season, there’s an age wrinkle.
For season 14, all dancers must be between the ages of 18-30 – they must be no younger than 18, nor older than 30, as of their first day of auditions. Auditions will be held in New York and Los Angeles.
Follow the break for details – including how to audition.
The Shots Fired and Prison Break event series, time travel comedy Making History and unscripted series Kicking and Screaming lead FOX’s spring premiere schedule – joined the previously announced 24: Legacy.
