Fox Renews Gotham, Empire and Brooklyn Nine-Nine

Gotham Renewed Season 2

Cookie, li’l Batman and Jake Peralta will be back.

Fox has renewed freshman dramas Empire and Gotham for Season 2, the network announced at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Saturday.

Additionally, Fox has picked up the Andy Samberg comedy Brooklyn Nine-Nine for Season 3.

Gotham and the recently debuted Empire stand among the Top 5 dramas of the TV season in the coveted 18-49 demo, while Brooklyn Nine-Nine in its new Sunday time slot is enjoying the largest year-to-year demo gain (up 17 percent) of any sophomore series.

  1. Stephon J.S says:

    Great to hear my shows were renewed

  2. Ian says:

    Sleepy Hollow though…

  3. Michelle says:

    Not surprised to not see Sleepy Hollow renewed yet. If I were FOX I’d wait to see if they can right the foundering ship.

  4. rachelle says:

    Great news! I love all three shows. I hope a renewal for Sleepy Hollow follows. And Mindy!

  5. Dawn says:

    Gotham is a good show! Bring back CHARMED!!

  6. Stacey says:

    Come on BONES. Come back for a final season. Given so much is up in the air due to contracts and Emily’s current pregnancy. But I figure they have more pesky contract negotiations. But please give it a early renewal if it is coming back. Then keeping up waiting until May. So if this is the final season, they can close it out. And given Emily’s pregnancy there is no telling how many episodes can air this year!

      Having read what Dana said at FOX TCA…its down to working out a deal with Emily & David and their contracts…they want Bones back, nothing would make her happier.

  7. Eran says:

    Does this mean a back 9 for Empire or is it a 13-episode first season?

    • Zorkel says:

      It’ll likely stay at 13 episodes for its first season, as I doubt there is enough time at this point to add more, though Season 2 could potentially be larger.

      • Matt Webb Mitovich says:

        Right, this isn’t a “back 9,” not sure the confusion. Season 2 order, as denoted above.

        • Eran says:

          Poor phrasing on my part. Sorry. The season 2 pick-up was clear. I was wondering whether *in addition* the show was getting a back-nine.

    • Jon Carpenter says:

      You can’t really get a back 9 on a midseason show. Not sure if it’s ever happened. There just isn’t room.

    • johnhelvete says:

      Found an interview with Taraji P Henson that indicates that she only agreed to do Empire because it is a 13 episode a season show that allows her to spend 6 months out of the year doing other projects.

  8. Eric says:

    Super glad to hear about B99, not surprised about Gotham, and indifferent towards Empire.

  9. kmw says:

    Yes Bones please get contract negotiations done and hope both will come back The show wouldn’t be the same without either one. This would not be good to drag this out until March or April. Supposedly we should get 12 more episode but with her pregnancy I do not know if we will. Not only do we have to wait for Bones to come back until March 26th but it looks like we are going to have to wait on this too. I know I am being selfish about this but Bones deserves to go out on a good note not at the last second. Please FOX and David and Emily get this done. As for other shows not really shocked about any of them especially Empire given how well its done

  10. JM says:

    Awesome! I love all three shows!

  11. Michelle says:

    So happy for Empire.

  12. Joey says:

    All three are great great great.

  13. Lizo says:

    Yay!!!! B99!!!!

  14. Viv says:

    Don’t even joke about not bringing Sleepy Hollow back…

  15. rowan77 says:

    Thats good news all around. All three are good shows.

  16. kirads09 says:

    Yay – GOTHAM rocks my world. Happy happy happy.

  17. TAL says:

  19. iamkessuki23tw says:

    yassssss for Cookie Lyon.

  20. Ram510 says:

    And that’s about all they can renew at this point

  21. Tran says:

    Fingers crossed for Sleepy Hollow to get renewed and possibly a full 22 episode run.

  22. Bobo Grier says:

    WOW! Renewed after just the pilot aired! Wow. Of course we have also had shows cancelled after just two airings. Congrats to Empire.

  23. analog says:

    so will empire be a midseason show next season too?

  24. Joey Padron says:

    happy Gotham and Brooklyn Nine-Nine got renewed!

  25. Ruth says:

    Come on Sleepy Hollow, you can do!! Please renew it!

  26. Maya says:

    Wow, can’t believe I missed this. I have to hand it to FOX – three of my favorite shows on their networks have already been renewed. Very happy!

  27. calvin fredricks says:

    Gotham is one of those show’s that people love for the present as well as the future.

  28. retsim says:

    How in Gods name does Brooklyn nine nine get renewed.It is one of the most unfunny shows ever made.Andy Samberg has to be the most talentless actor ever. As the saying goes !,only in America,, I thought it was a kids show .

  29. U really liked Gotham was something new and good drama each week. Didn’t expect fish take out eye like she did sure was different. Keep them exposes coming
