So far, the 2018-19 TV season is off to a less than auspicious start. I’ve only been able to get through three episodes of one show – but it was a real slog.
FOX’s top-rated drama 9-1-1 returns this fall on a new night and timeslot.
Other dramas returning in the fall include: The Gifted, Lethal Weapon (minus Riggs; plus a new guy played by Sean William Scott) and The Resident.
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’s unexpected entertaining Lethal Weapon adaptation has gotten an order for five more episodes, bringing it up to eighteen – essentially a full season.
Lethal Weapon airs in the Wednesday, 8pm (ET) timeslot. For a tagline for tonight’s episode, read on.
A bereaved, suicidal Texas cop is transferred to Los Angeles and partnered with a fifty-year old veteran homicide cop. Chaos ensues. Welcome to the television reboot of Lethal Weapon (FOX, Wednesdays, 8/7C).
FOX Unveiled its 2016-17 Schedule for both Fall and Mid-Season today – and there were some intriguing additions and changes.
24: Legacy is the lucky series that gets to premiere following the Super Bowl on Sunday, May 5th before premiering in its regular timeslot (8/7C) the next night.
And speaking of specials, The Rocky Horror Picture Show is set for October (just in time for Halloween).
Lethal Weapon will premiere ahead of Empire on Wednesdays, with Rosewood shifting to Thursdays, leading into Bones. The Exorcist (based on the book and movie) will follow Hell’s Kitchen on Fridays.
Prison Break heads a list of highly anticipated shows that will premiere at mid-season – where it will take over Bones’ timeslot. Lee Daniels’ Star will air between the fall and spring runs of Empire. Procedural APB and Pitch (about the first woman to pitch in Major League Baseball also premiere in mid-season.
