FOX fans, your time is at hand! While some renewals are more surprising than others, FOX has officially granted a second season to Andy Samberg's Golden Globe-winning 'Brooklyn Nine-Nine,' along with thirds for Kevin Bacon serial killer drama 'The Following' and Mindy Kaling's critically-adored 'The Mindy Project,' and a fourth season for Zooey Deschanel's ever-quirky 'New Girl.'
Fans of FOX's 'New Girl' were particularly excited to learn that season 3 would return original pilot star Damon Wayans Jr. to the fold as "Coach" for a four-episode arc that began with this past Tuesday's aptly-titled "Coach." Well, good news! The former 'Happy Endings' star has booked himself a longer stay in the loft, but how long will the 'New Girl' gang be heavy an extra member?
Summer may be gone, but who cares? It’s TV time! Fall TV 2013 will prove among the more exciting seasons in recent years, including everything from Marvel’s ‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ premiere to the return of our beloved ‘Walking Dead’ for season 4, but with so many options to choose from, which TV is really must-see?
We break down the 20 can’t-miss premieres from the ABC to the NBC to the BBC, including those that will have us talking for months on end, and a score of saucy secrets from each of Fall TV’s best!
Recent casting announcements for 'New Girl' season 3 haven't proved as exciting as when former 'Happy Endings' star Damon Wayans Jr. was announced to return to his pilot role as "Coach," but the bevy of new stars joining the quirky FOX comedy merits mention. Not only will 'Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23' star Dreama Walker pop up as a B in her own right, but so too will 'The Office' star Angela Kinsey, and previous guest star Eva Amurri.
Recent weeks brought the monumental 'New Girl' news that displaced 'Happy Endings' star Damon Wayans, Jr. would reprise his pilot role as "Coach" for a major season 3 arc, but Wayans won't be the only fan-favorite guest star to return. Season 3 of FOX's quirky hit will also return 'Nurse Jackie' star Merritt Wever to the fold as her character Elizabeth, but for how long?
Out of the ashes of 'Happy Endings' official cancellation depriving us of future hilarity, one major bright spot has emerged. Initially appearing in the 'New Girl' pilot before 'Happy Endings' was renewed for a second season, Damon Wayans Jr. will reprise his role as Coach for a "significant" 'New Girl' season 3 arc this fall.
FOX has officially joined the ranks of broadcast networks to release their fall 2013-2014 premiere schedule, leaving ABC the lone holdout. Among the bigger changes on deck for the network, 'The X-Factor' will debut over two nights with a solid four hours, while 'Bones' moves to Fridays in November, and the much buzzed-about '24' revival '24: Live Another Day' has a semi-official premiere date set for May 2014.
Those unfamiliar with 'Veronica Mars' in its original incarnation might be dumbfounded to learn of the now-famous guest stars that appeared over the years, from Aaron Paul ('Breaking Bad') to Jessica Chastain. Now, as filming begins on the long-awaited movie, current 'New Girl' star Max Greenfield has also signed up to reprise his role as Deputy Leo D'Amato.
Just yesterday NBC officially announced its fall schedule, complete with new additions to the lineup and a few shuffles of existing series, while today FOX has joined the fray. Not only will '24' return in 2014, but FOX will also move 'Bones and 'Raising Hope' to Fridays, giving new series from J.J. Abrams, Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman places to shine! Find out FOX's fall lineup, including a big move for 'Glee,' inside!
