With the summer here, good weather also means most TV shows have ended for the season. And if there is one thing that can make the coming of winter slightly more tolerable, the return of your favourite TV shows. Fox announces new and returning shows this fall with 16 titles already announced. With a whole host of existing shows being greenlit for another season, which is always good news for fans, there is also a whole new batch of brand new television shows making their debut this fall.
Minority Report, based on the Steven Spielberg film of the same name in 2002, the show takes place 10 years after the end of the film, where one Pre-Cog fails to lead a normal life, all the while struggling with vision of the future. Spielberg has stepped away from the project, instead a new team has taken the reigns, almost 13 years after the film. Starring Meagan Good, Wilmer Valderrama and Laura Regan, the show hopes to become a sleeper hit for Fox. The show is set to premiere on September 21st on Fox.
Scream Queens, taken from the 1996 slasher Scream, was a name given to Jamie Lee Curtis by one of the characters in Wes Craven’s classic horror. The name was taken and applied to the new show from Fox, that follows a sorority pledge gone wrong and a series of grisly murders takes place on campus. Starring Emma Roberts and Jamie Lee Curtis, Scream Queens is an homage to the slasher films of the late 80s and early 90s. From creator Ryan Murphy, whose other credits include American Horror Story, Glee and Nip/Tuck, this show could be promising. The season premiere will be on 22nd September.
As for returning shows, Gotham will be back for its second season after the hugely successful debut season. The show succeeded where Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale left off, with a dark and gritty take on Batman, with the focus on the rise to prominence of Commissioner Gordon, as Detective James Gordon played by Ben McKensie. The new season returns on September 21st.
Along with many other shows returning, two classic TV shows are making their return once again, as The Simpsons and Family Guy both return what will be their 28th and 14th seasons respectively. The Simpsons have been going strong since 1989, whereas Family Guy was actually in fact cancelled by Fox back in 2003 due to poor ratings, but the show had such a strong following that due to DVD sales alone, Fox reinstated the show. Both shows will return to your TV screens on September 27th.
