Aside from its current revival fervor, FOX hasn’t yet placed an official order for more 24, particularly after news that Kiefer Sutherland’s Jack Bauer wouldn’t take part. New 24 may prove even less familiar to fans however, eschewing any known characters for a “total reset.”

While its cinematic branch increasingly braces for the Apocalypse, the X-Men franchise may yet have come closer to mutating into a live-action TV series. FOX updates that continued negotiation for a “long-running series” rages on, though Marvel will have final say on use of the characters.
A ways back, FOX opted to dive even further into its revival pool than 24 or The X-Files, as rumors swirled of a possible Prison Break event series. Now, not only has the network confirmed another Prison Break in the works, but so too are original series stars Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell onboard.
Recently moving itself up to Halloween, the impending crossover of Bones and Sleepy Hollow has already left more than a few fans scratching their heads. We may finally have answers as to what brings Ichabod, Abbie, Booth and Brennan together, but what game either producers such an insane idea?
FOX’s Empire earned the network enough money and acclaim that Season 2 may well become a veritable honeypot of celebrity and media attention. Case in point, the legendary Mariah Carey has now joined the march of guest stars parading through the second season this fall, according to creator Lee Daniels.
Gotham has never shied away from hammering home its origins and imagery, and Season 2 seems no different by the first posters. Watch the villains rise (weren’t they already doing that?) with a batty first look at the new FOX season, complete with shots of our new big Gotham big bads.
Not that either couldn’t use the publicity, but the notion of FOX’s supernatural Sleepy Hollow crossing over with the science-minded Bones struck an odd note for fans of either series. The network had originally though to stage the two-hour event later in the season, perhaps even 2016, but has apparently gotten jazzed up enough to move the crossover as early as Halloween.
Years from now, we’ll all look back fondly on those crazy couple of weeks when Harry Shearer had apparently left The Simpsons and his 20+ voices behind over ambiguous contract issues. That said, don’t let Harry Shearer know you suspect it all smoke and mirrors. It “wasn’t a stunt,” he’s super-serious!
The inherent secrecy of The Last Man on Earth gave its first season a few ups and downs, though those directions look increasingly literal by the Will Forte-starring, Lord and Miller-produced comedy’s first Season 2 poster. Carol and Phil (and all his sporting good friends) hit the road in our first look at Season 2, but what might it mean for the rest of the cast?
FOX’s Gotham has only expanded as we approach the Season 2 premiere, adding more regulars and Batty villains than we can count, but may finally have stumbled over its own size. Two more of Gotham’s finest won’t return for Season 2 as series regulars, while a new international trailer spotlights lunatics running Arkham Asylum this time out.
