It’s that magical, terrifying time of year when series orders and cancellations go out; the new additions releasing their first photos and trailers. So it was with FOX yesterday, and now our first looks at 24 continuation 24: Legacy have arrived, along with movie reboots The Exorcist and Lethal Weapon.

And so, it begins. FOX already got the ball rolling on its new 2016 series with the order of 24: Legacy, and now a number of other reboots have taken hold. Not only has the new take on The Exorcist gotten an official greenlight, so too has the Lethal Weapon reboot, Lord and Miller’s time-travel comedy, a baseball drama and more.
FOX’s Gotham has gone full on Bats–t in its second season, and now a fan-favorite from the first year will help the final Season 2 episodes feel right at home. Jada Pinkett Smith returns as Fish Mooney in new photos and trailer for “A Legion of Horribles,” along with what could be our first look at the Court of Owls.
It’s safe to say that Gotham has been playing on a different field of late, when the same episode can see Hugo Strange sending Mr. Freeze after a mutant claw girl created in part by Thomas Wayne, and now another villain has arrived to dispense some wrath. Or … rise. Whatever Gotham villains are doing with subtitles these days. Anyway, here’s Clayface!
If Seth MacFarlane’s live-action presence in movies like A Million Ways Ways to Die in the West didn’t thrust the Family Guy creator into the spotlight, how about his own live-action FOX series? We’ll find out, as MacFarlane boldly goes with a new series order for a sci-fi dramedy set among the stars.
The Simpsons has had plenty of chances to experiment in its 27+ years, but will venture surprisingly modern (as in to the second) with an upcoming “live” segment animated by motion-capture. A first look at the new clip has arrived, but will The Simpsons ever stage an entirely live episode?
The Simpsons has visited just about every nook and cranny of pop culture in its near-30 years, though a long-abandoned episode concept saw the late Prince putting in a particularly meta appearance. Now, Simpsons boss Al Jean shares the tribute episode that might have been, as well what caused the revered artist to decline.
It’s been some time since we’ve had a noteworthy Simpsons couch gag, and like all animated greats, there’s room to borrow from the classics. If ever you wondered what Homer, Marge, Bart, Maggie and Lisa might have looked like as Disney cartoons, check out the latest gag from a revered Disney animator.
FOX’s Gotham gave up the goods a few weeks back with on-set photos of a certain Season 2 villain’s return, now reborn as Batman antihero Azrael, but the real thing is much cooler in context. See for yourself, as Gotham previews Azrael’s rise in a new full-length trailer, costume and all.
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.
