Fox Announces Fall Premiere Dates


With comic-book adaptation Gotham and mystery drama Gracepoint, among others, on its schedule, Fox has perhaps the most enviable fall line-up of any primetime network. So, TV aficionados, unpin your calendar from the corkboard and take out a pen – we now know what Fox’s plan is for launching its new series and premiering new seasons of others. You can check out it all out below.

Intriguingly, it’s reality series Utopia that will serve as Fox’s first big premiere. The network is giving it a three-night launch and a special Sunday sampling before it moves into its usual spot. The show, about fifteen individuals tasked with moving to a remote location and constructing their own ideal society, bows Sunday, September 7th then moves to its regular one-hour slots on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Next up, Fox will bring back returning comedy faves New Girl and The Mindy Project first up (September 16th) then air new series Red Band Society, a medical drama, on the 17th. Gotham, about the rise of Commissioner Jim Gordon in a Batman-less Gotham City, will be paired with supernatural Sleepy Hollow and premiere on Monday, September 22nd.
