Fox Announces Fall Premiere Dates for the 2016-2017 Season

Fox has announced its fall premiere dates for its new and returning series.

All-new episodes of Gotham and Lucifer return Monday, Sept. 19. On season three of Gotham (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT), the origin story continues and the stakes are higher than ever, as super-villains more ambitious and depraved are introduced, and a realignment of alliances shakes up the fight for power in Gotham City. Season two of Lucifer (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) promises to be a mother of a season, as Lucifer Morningstar (Tom Ellis) is tasked with finding his family’s matriarch, while continuing to take down criminals alongside LAPD Detective Chloe Decker (Lauren German).

Tuesday nights of comedy begin Tuesday, Sept. 20 with the return of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, New Girl, and Scream Queens. Entering its fourth season, Brooklyn Nine-Nine (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT) returns after a season finale cliffhanger in which Detective Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg) and his by-the-book boss, Captain Holt (Andre Braugher), were forced to enter the federal witness protection program.

Then, the sixth season of ensemble comedy New Girl (8:30-9:00 PM ET/PT) continues to follow Jess (Zooey Deschanel) and the gang as they attempt to find their respective places in the world, while begrudgingly accepting the responsibilities of adulthood – from marriage to career advancement – with often hilarious results.

From award-winning executive producers Ryan Murphy (The People V. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story, American Horror Story, Nip/Tuck), Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story, Glee, Nip/Tuck) and Ian Brennan (Glee), season two of Scream Queens (9:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) graduates from the college campus and into a hospital with a haunted past, as a new and terrifyingly funny mystery begins. Returning for season two are cast members Emma Roberts as Chanel Oberlin, 2016 Golden Globe Award nominee Jamie Lee Curtis as Cathy Munsch, Lea Michele as Hester Ulrich, Abigail Breslin as Chanel #5, Keke Palmer as Zayday Williams, Billie Lourd as Chanel #3, Glen Powell as Chad Radwell and Niecy Nash as Denise Hemphill.
