Fox 2016 Fall Schedule: Prison Break Revival and 24: Legacy Held for Midseason, No X-Files in Sight

UPDATE 5/20: Updated to reflect new schedules for Bones, Pitch, and Prison Break.


Ahead of Fox's annual Upfront presentation Monday afternoon, the network released both its new fall schedule and its planned midseason schedule, though don't be surprised if either of them change as shows are inevitably axed. As it stands, the network's fall schedule looks fairly familiar, with only three new series currently scheduled in the lineup. 

The network's version of Lethal Weapon will lead into Empire on Wednesdays, which feels like a mismatched pairing if I've ever seen one. Meanwhile, The Exorcist is not paired with Lucifer on Mondays, but will hold down the fort on Fridays after new episodes of Hell's Kitchen so it's still on-theme at least in title. The lone new comedy Son of Zorn, a hybrid of live-action and animation, will join the Sunday evening comedy block. 

Meanwhile, 24: Legacy, a.k.a. 24 Without Jack Bauer, will wait until midseason and get the prime post-Super Bowl slot before moving to its regular time period Mondays at 8pm until Gotham returns in the spring. The Prison Break revival, which will feature most of the original cast, including Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell, will also debut at midseason, taking over on Thursdays after Bones wraps up its twelfth and final season. And sorry to burst your bubble (maybe?), but there won't be another season of The X-Files, at least not in 2016-2017.
