Welcome back to a proper Upfronts season, the moment when network TV reveals all their secret plans for the fall television season (such as it is anymore). In the wake of a destructive pandemic and in the face of the inevitable takeover of streaming, networks are playing it safer and safer: canceling fewer shows, ordering fewer comedies, and greenlighting familiar titles.
In a demonstration of a complete lack of preparedness, Fox reportedly wasn’t able to secure renewals for 9-1-1 and The Resident until this afternoon. So they decided to just hold off on announcing their fall schedule today, the one day everyone was expecting it. Instead, they dumped a bunch of new shows, three dramas, and two animated comedies, without any indication if they are fall or midseason series. LOL, ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.
This post will be updated with trailers and premiere dates — and a schedule — as they become available.
