FOX’ Renews ‘The Following,’ ‘New Girl,’ ‘Raising Hope’ and ‘The Mindy Project’
The FOX network hasn't had many breakout success in the 2012-2013 season, perhaps apart from the continual buzz of 'The Following,' but they're still nowhere near as stagnant as NBC. Accordingly, not much about FOX's weekday lineup will change going into the 2013-2014 season, as the network has offiically given renewal orders to 'The Following,' 'New Girl,' 'Raising Hope' and 'The Mindy Project.' Find out what FOX has to say of its big news inside!
Whether or not you watch any of 'The Following,' 'New Girl,' 'Raising Hope' or 'The Mindy Project,' FOX has made certain you have ample time to catch up. The network made a broad stroke today for its 2013 season, granting a second rounds to the Kevin Bacon-fronted 'Following' and Mindy Kaling's 'The Mindy Project,' and a third and fourth season to 'New Girl' and 'Raising Hope,' respectively.
Like its first season, 'The Following' will return for an additional 15-episode order, of which FOX president Kevin Reilly said, “From the very beginning, we felt Kevin Williamson and Marcos Siega had created a high-quality, edge-of-your-seat drama that could break from the pack, and it is exciting to see the audience responding. Kevin Bacon and James Purefoy have given us two of the most compelling characters on television and the entire cast is incredible. I’m delighted to have this thrill ride continue for another season.”
With 'Bones' already renewed and 'Ben and Kate' effectively cancelled, the only remaining questions for FOX's future are that of 'Glee' and 'Touch,' though 'Glee's' renewal depends much more on contract negotiations and a re-tooled premise for the fifth season than ratings.
