Upfronts 2017: Fox

Fox seems to have a fairly consistent roster of new and old shows with Gotham, Empire, Lethal Weapon, The Exorcist, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Family Guy and The Simpsons all coming back next year but there were quite a few cancellations as well. Fox’s big push for the fall is The Gifted, an X-Men show backed by Bryan Singer and Matt Nix that seems more connected to the movie universe than the trippy awesomeness of Legion.  Check out what’s coming back, what’s cancelled and what’s new over on Fox below.

New Shows

The Gifted

LA to Vegas

Set on the Friday night flight from LAX to Vegas and the returning flight on Sunday, it follows a group of underdogs trying to find their place in the world who all share the same goal: to come back a winner in the casino of life.

The Orville

Set 400 years in the future, series follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel.

The Resident
