Fall TV Preview

Fox Premiere Dates: Scream Queens' Big Bow, Bones/Sleepy Combo Lands October Launch and More

Fox Premiere Dates

Fox is the final broadcast network to unveil its fall premiere plan, and turns out Scream Queens star Emma Roberts left out a rather crucial detail when she revealed the show’s Sept. 22 premiere date on Twitter earlier this week: Ryan Murphy’s horror satire will launch with a two-hour episode.

Elsewhere, Gotham is the first series out of the gate (Sept. 21, paired with new drama Minority Report), Empire (as previously reported) returns Sept. 23, and Thursday’s Bones/Sleepy Hollow combo platter launches on the late side (Oct. 1).

On deck for midseason: The X-Files, New Girl, the Grim Reaper-themed Lucifer (which will get a launch out of X-Files), the modern-day Frankenstein Code Lookinglass, the sitcom Guide to Surviving Life and Seth MacFarlane’s long-gestating animated comedy Bordertown. Returning reality series on the ’16 deck include Are You Smarter Than a Fifth Grader, Hell’s Kitchen, MasterChef and So You Think You Can Dance.
