I’m a bit late to the game on this one because I was out.
But it was FOX day at the TCA Winter Press Tour, and the network clearly didn’t hold back with news.
First off, FOX has picked up hit drama “Empire” for a third season. All together now: Duh!
Equally unsurprising, but still a bit less predictable due to ratings not even in the ball park of “Empire”, FOX has also renewed Ryan Murphy/Brad Falchuck horror comedy “Scream Queens” for a second season.
The new setting for the show has also been revealed. Season two will be set at a hospital. And several first season characters are expected to return.
Additionally, FOX has ordered a spinoff for its long-running hit series “24”. Titled “Legacy”, the new show will focus on a new ensemble of characters, with several well-known “24” characters said to be at least figuring into the story.
The project will revolve around a military hero’s return to the U.S. and the trouble that follows him back – compelling him to ask CTU for help in saving his life, and stopping what potentially could be one of the largest-scale terror attacks on American soil.
And finally, the long-mulled return to “Prison Break” has now been made official. Wentworth Miller and Dominic Purcell will reprise their roles of Michael Scofield and Lincoln Burrows. No additional details were given for the moment.
