Fox has renewed comedies Brooklyn Nine-Nine (the best new comedy of the season), The Mindy Project and New Girl, plus psychological thriller The Following for the 2014-15 season. Specifics can be found in the press release after the jump.
Not only do New Girl and Brooklyn Nine-Nine get the plum timelsot following Super Bowl XLVIII, they also rock the guest stars. On New Girl, Jess’ best friend, Cece, gets an exclusive invitation to Prince’s New Year’s party, while Fred Armisen and Super Bowl winning quarterback Joe Theismann are among the guest stars on Brooklyn Nine-Nine as the precinct’s arch-rival The Vulture (Dean Winters) returns.

Fox has pulled quirky, brother & sister comedy Ben amd Kate from its schedule effective immediately. Until Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen returns on March 12, Raising Hope (an equally quirky, but much less funny series) will pull double duty with new ‘one-hour’ episodes on January 29 and February 5 and 26th. New episodes of New Girl and The Mindy Project will continue in their regular timeslots.
Full details of the hastily rejigged schedule – complete with episode taglines – follow the jump.
Fans of Fox series – like Bones, Fringe and New Girl – might want to mark their calendars. Fox announced the season finales for thirteen of their sixteen series – and the series finale for House, today.
