Fox's 2014-2015 Schedule: A Sunday Shake-up, Gotham With Sleepy Hollow, and Glee MIA
Fox has unveiled its new fall schedule, which finds Animation Domination getting a little less animated, Bones on the move (again!), and Glee missing in action.
One of the bigger surprises of the network's new schedule is that the network is adding two live-action comedies to its Sunday-night lineup, which has been exclusively devoted to animated programming for the last several years. The block formerly known as Animated Domination will now feature the sophomore season of the Golden Globe-winning Brooklyn Nine-Nine 8:30pm, preceded by Bob's Burgers and The Simpsons. Family Guy will air at 9pm, followed by new comedy Mulaney—which stars comedian and former Saturday Night Live writer John Mulaney—at 9:30pm.
New reality series Utopia—which sends 15 people to an isolated, undeveloped location for an entire year and challenges them to create their own civilization—will kick off Tuesday nights at 8pm, followed by New Girl and The Mindy Project at 9pm and 9:30pm, respectively.
On Wednesday, the Octavia Spencer-starring coming-of-age drama Red Band Society airs at 8pm, followed by Hell's Kitchen at 9pm.
After testing out the waters on pretty much every night of Fox's schedule, Bones is returning to Thursday nights at 8pm, where it aired during its fourth, fifth, and part of its sixth seasons. It will be followed by Gracepoint—Fox's 10-episode adaptation of the U.K. series Broadchurch that stars Anna Gunn and David Tennant—at 9pm.
Closing out the week on Fridays are Masterchef Junior at 8pm, and a second new episode of Utopia (the show will air twice a week for its first six weeks) at 9pm.
Glee's sixth and final season is currently unscheduled. New series Backstrom, Empire, Hieroglyph, Last Man on Earth, Bordertown, and Weird Loners, as well as the event series Wayward Pines and a live version of the Broadway musical Grease, will debut in 2015. Live special Jump of the Century is slated for fall.
