The entertainment world has been greatly affected by the coronavirus pandemic, but Fox is still pressing ahead with new plans for the future. In May, Fox announced its fall 2020 schedule, we've compiled everything you need to know about the new lineup, including which shows have been renewed, those shows that have been canceled, and what new series are headed your way.
Returning shows include The Masked Singer, 9-1-1, 9-1-1: Lone Star, Last Man Standing, Family Guy, Prodigal Son, The Simpsons, Bless the Harts, Duncanville, and Bob's Burgers. New drama series NeXt and Filthy Rich, which were originally slated for midseason debuts, have been pushed to fall. Other new Fox shows you should keep an eye on include Call Me Kat, a comedy series from The Big Bang Theory's Jim Parsons and Mayim Bialik, and new animated series The Great North and Housebroken. (Two shows that won't be returning to the schedule are Deputy and Outmatched, both of which were canceled after one season.)
Most of these announcements come with a pretty huge "if" attached, though. With most TV productions suspended as a result of the coronavirus, we don't know yet when Fox will be able to begin production on any of their new or returning series. However, with Fox's fall lineup dominated by animation, reality, sports, and a handful of dramas that have already wrapped production, the network is in a good position going into the fall 2020 season.
Head here to check out Fox's fall 2020-2021 schedule to find out if any of your returning favorites are on the move and which hits are being held for midseason, and you can find out Fox's fall 2020-2021 premiere dates right here.
