The smell of fall TV is in the air, and with it, even the Brooklyn Nine-Nine crew are taking in the last sun. Our first look at Season 4 picks up with Jake and Holt – er, Larry and Greg – in witness protection in Florida, even including SNL vet Maya Rudolph in the first footage.
These days, it'd take at least two years to watch only only one season's worth of #PeakTV, a quarter of which won't even be around a second year. You’d need some sort of absurd television guidance periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you' we've put together an in-depth look at 30 major must-see premieres kicking off as early as August 31. Come, wrap some barbed wire around your bats and grab a coffee in Stars Hollow, as we descend into the madness that is Fall TV 2016!
Well, if it worked for Sleepy Hollow and Bones, surely Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl should have no trouble sharing the screen, right? We’ll find out this fall, as the latter two comedies take part in what appears to be FOX’s yearly crossover, bringing Zooey Deschanel and her loftmates to Brooklyn.
FOX hasn’t issued terribly many renewals for the 2016-17 season as of yet, but fans of half-hour comedies from SNL alum are in good hands. Not only will The Last Man on Earth continue not to be the last man on Earth through 2017, so too will Brooklyn Nine-Nine remain open.
Broadcast TV has seen some muted ups and downs in the 2015-2016 season, though no official cancellations have taken place. Still, change is all around for FOX in 2016, banishing Sleepy Hollow to Fridays, while slotting in premieres for DC’s Lucifer, New Girl, and American Idol’s final bow.
More and more each year, TV executives quake in their stylish, yet affordable boots over the exponential increase in peak TV, even as us ravenous viewers eagerly take it all in. Fall 2015 is no exception, cramming your DVR with everything from superheroes new and old, to Scream-ing gore-fests, animated staples and so much more. You’d need some sort of … television … guidance … periodical to navigate it all, but because we love you, we’ve compiled over 30 of Fall 2015's biggest must-see premieres. Remember to sleep, and take in the onslaught of fall 2015's TV madness by our full preview!
Over the last month, networks have slowly rolled out their roster of schedules and premieres, leaving FOX to finally get in on the game. Find out when when headliners like Gotham and Bones return, along with all of FOX’s new series and a frightfully large debut for Ryan Murphy’s Scream Queens.
Amid the myriad of FOX’s pickups and surprising cancellations, the network has also taken its 2015 Upfront presentation to file out Mulder and Scully’s TV return. Not only will The X-Files formally return in January 2016, but so too has the network put the truth out there with its full future lineup.
FOX will give Batman further beginnings with another round of ‘Gotham’ in the fall, but Jim Gordon’s won’t be the only precinct hanging around for an additional season. In addition to the renewal, ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’ will officially remain open another year, along with FOX’s new hip-hop drama ‘Empire.’
