Fox has announced that it will renew comedies “New Girl”, “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Mindy Project”, along with drama “The Following”, for its 2014/15 season.
The four new early renewals join “Glee”, “Sleepy Hollow” and “Bones”, which the studio previously named for next season.
“These shows are some of the best and acclaimed series on television, with influential, culture-driving stars, and some of the best, most creative talent behind the camera,” said Kevin Reilly, Fox Chairman, and COO Joe Earley. “All four are core assets within our 2014-15 portfolio of content, and we’re really happy to bring them back to our FOX fans for another season.”
On the back of the cancellation of Fox’s “The X Factor”, the continuing shows will no doubt help Fox fill the three hour hole that the talent show used to take up.
Fox seems to be following its own renewal agenda with the networks not required to name their lists for the 2014/15 season until May. Most opt to wait to see their pilots before making such decisions.
