There’s still a great deal to sort out as Disney swallows 21st Century Fox whole, but the TV networks themselves may only get a “New” tweak. Network bosses assure that the major FOX stations will continue “business as usual” after the deal closes, while also offering updates on The Gifted, Prison Break and more.
Unlike some shows, six seasons on one network is usually enough to merit a proper sendoff. So it is, that FOX will grant New Girl a short and sweet goodbye, renewing the bubble show for a seventh and final season.
Well, if the Friends all had to get on with their lives eventually, it stands to reason New Girl couldn’t stay new forever. The once-breakout comedy is likely to come to an end after Season 6, according to star Jake Johnson, though a potential finale is at least in place.
A FOX crossover between Brooklyn Nine-Nine and New Girl makes far and away more sense than Bones and Sleepy Hollow ever did, but will both styles of humor manage to blend? Find out for yourself in the first official promo and photos of the surprise meetup!
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.
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.
You wouldn’t be the only New Girl fan to have tuned out over the last few seasons, but it seems the once-adorkable Zooey Deschanel comedy will get a bit less quirky in Season 5 (!). Following news that the original manic-pixie-dream-girl would sit out a few episodes for her real-life pregnancy, New Girl Season 5 has made every Schmidt’s dream come true in adding Megan Fox to the loft.
American Horror Story star Sarah Paulson recently cast doubt over everything we thought we knew of Season 5's Hotel stay, and the latest casting may yet have confirmed that. New Girl star Max Greenfield will bring some fresh blood to FX’s Horror Story franchise, but likely won’t keep it pumping for very long.
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.
